Massage Therapy

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to treat various conditions. It employs manual techniques such as applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body. Hand and elbow techniques affect the muscular, skeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of the body.

Thrive Now Registered Massage Therapists are trained to provide an accurate assessment, differential diagnosis, and prognosis within their scope of expertise, and treat effectively.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

There are a variety of benefits of massage therapy. Some of the most common ones include:

Stress and Anxiety Relief

Massage can help reduce stress and promote relaxation, especially given its relaxing properties during your session and after.

Pain Management

It can alleviate muscle tension and reduce pain through therapeutic massage that targets specific areas of tension.

Improved Circulation

Massage can enhance blood flow and lymphatic circulation, which contributes to the healing process within your body.

Better Mobility and Flexibility

Regular sessions can enhance flexibility and range of motion, which help you enjoy the activities you love doing that require movement.

Better Sleep

Massage may improve sleep quality and help with insomnia, both because of its circulatory, pain relief, and relaxation benefits.

Injury Recovery

It can aid in recovering from injuries by promoting healing and working on areas of pain and tension without being invasive.

Tim was very knowledgeable and took the time to really get to know what was going on with my injuries. Tim knew what was up with my shoulder and worked very hard to produce the results I was hoping for when I made my massage therapy appointment. I will definitely be coming back!
