Massage Therapy is used by many different people who may suffer injuries from different things. Whether it be from stress at the office to a sports injury, Massage Therapy can be used for health maintenance as well as injury rehabilitation.

Corporate massage takes care of the pain that comes with sitting in the same position at work every day. This places a severe strain on the body, causing pain in the neck, the shoulders, and the lower back. Massage Therapy is used to reduce stress and soothe the pain that comes with it. Working for long periods of time can result in burning out, depression, anxiety, and more. Massage Therapy is the needed relaxation in many people’s lives.

TMJ massage is used to treat inflammation and soreness in the temporomandibular joint. This vital joint connects the lower jawbone to the rest of the skull. The jaw is used to open your mouth for eating, drinking, speaking and more. Pain in this area will make it difficult to do any of these and will greatly impact your life. This issue responds extremely well to Massage Therapy. Applying circular pressure to the jaw muscles provides temporary relief. TMJ massage aims to restore normalcy for many individuals.

Sports massage is targeted to individuals who play recreational or professional sports. Massage therapy is used to boost performance, rehabilitate injuries, and prevent injuries from occurring. Every athlete will have a different massage routine depending on the sport, their training schedule, and more.

Prenatal massage is used to treat the aches and pains that come with pregnancy. It targets specific issues that are unique to pregnant women. As the uterus expands, it puts pressure on the lower back and upper leg, causing pain or numbness in the sciatic nerve. Massage Therapy can help to reduce tension and minimize symptoms. It can also help reduce any swelling and improves blood circulation for comfort. Most importantly, it can bring expectant mothers some needed relaxation.
