Massage therapy involves the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints.  A therapeutic massage can address a variety of conditions including muscle tension and overuse, stress, injuries, chronic pain, headaches, nerve compression syndromes and more. Research shows that massage is also an effective tool for stress management and for promoting general relaxation.
