- Post-injury rehabilitation
- Respiratory problems

- Frozen shoulder
A well rounded Massage Therapy program can melt away stress and tension, relieving associated headaches and muscular aches and pains. Massage Therapy can expedite the healing process from injury or over-use, and is an excellent form of preventive health care.

Massage is a gentle, touch therapy that can relieve pain and bring balance to your life. It is not a substitute for medical care but it can reduce or eliminate the need for medication or surgery.
Massage Therapy will calm your nervous system and gives you more energy. It will relieve many types of muscle tightness especially the back and neck area where most of us store the tension. Muscles can become so contracted that they press on nerves to the arms, hands and legs, causing pain, tingling and numbness. Massage can release muscle spasm and tightness in the shoulders or hip to bring relief.
Massage can relieve headaches caused by trigger points, or eyestrain, a low back pain during pregnancy, or the protective tensing of healthy muscles around an injury.
Many of today’s health problems arise from stress. Because stress upsets the delicate integral balance of all your body’s functions, regaining this balance requires a holistic approach.
