Muscle Tension Relief  |  Ease Headaches and Stress |  Improved Circulation

Osteopathy1Massage Therapy  is the assessment and manipulation of soft tissues and joints to improve blood flow, relieve muscle tension and alleviate discomfort and pain.

Why it Works  Massage therapy is beneficial for chronic pain, muscular overuse or everyday stress. Human touch is in itself healing and can release chemical endorphins in the body that relieve pain and improve mood. Massage can also eliminate or reduce inflammation by increasing joint mobility and the flow of fluids throughout the body.

How it Works  A massage therapist may use a variety of techniques to release tension and restore energy. Stretches, pressure points, effleurage, and deep tissue manipulation may be used. Because a combination of massage and shiatsu may be incorporated into a treatment, Integrated Bodywork does not use massage oils. The client wears loose comfortable clothing.
