Massage Therapy

Yes! Massage therapy has been shown to be highly effective for reducing stress and anxiety levels, both in the short term and over time. It helps to calm the nervous system, release endorphins (feel-good hormones), and promote relaxation throughout the body.

It’s not uncommon to feel sore after a massage, especially if you’re getting deep tissue work or trigger point therapy. This soreness typically goes away within a day or two and is a sign that your muscles are releasing tension and toxins. Be sure to drink plenty of water after your massage to help flush out these toxins and aid in recovery.


Trigger point therapy is a specific type of massage that focuses on releasing tight, knotted areas in the muscles called trigger points. These areas can be highly sensitive and can refer pain to other parts of the body, so releasing them can help alleviate pain and improve overall mobility and function.

Remedial massage is a type of massage that uses a variety of techniques to help identify and treat muscular imbalances and injuries. It often involves deeper pressure, trigger point therapy, and stretching, and can be highly effective for treating chronic pain, tension headaches, and musculoskeletal injuries.

Absolutely! While sports massage was originally developed for athletes, it can be highly beneficial for anyone who is physically active, experiences chronic pain, or has muscular imbalances. Even people who spend a lot of time sitting at a desk can benefit from sports massage to help alleviate tension in the neck, shoulders, and lower back.

Sports massage is a type of therapeutic massage that is specifically designed to help athletes and active individuals recover from workouts, injuries, and other physical stressors. It typically involves deeper pressure and more targeted techniques than relaxation massage, and focuses on treating specific areas of the body that are prone to tightness, tension, and injury.

Individual preference varies, so for most it depends on your level of activity, pain level, physical needs, emotional needs, and of course, budget. Receiving a massage regularly has the most benefit; this can be as often as weekly or monthly. Our recommendation is to listen to your body. Massage can use as both proactive and preventative healthcare method.

Massage therapy can help to relieve muscle tension and pain, reduce stress and anxiety, improve circulation, enhance athletic performance, boost immune function, improve sleep quality, reduce headaches and migraines, and promote mental clarity and focus. It is a powerful tool for promoting overall health and wellbeing, and can benefit people of all ages and activity levels.
