The first day we opened a man came in, stooped over with pain. He said his chiropractor wasn’t open and was wondering if he could get a massage? He came out of that session and looked 20 years younger. He was standing straight and honestly, skipped slightly as he left. Tears pricked my wife’s eyes as we looked at one another knowing this endeavor to start a business in the massage industry had been the right one and we haven’t looked back.

It sounds like a no-brainer, but rubdowns are especially effective for aches like low-back pain. Researchers at the Group Health Center for Health Studies in Seattle, Washington, found that massage works better than common treatments including chiropractic therapy and acupuncture. It's not clear why, but several studies show massage reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol while boosting the feel-good hormones serotonin and dopamine. Those changes slow your heart rate, reduce blood pressure and block your nervous system's pain receptors. Massage also increases blood flow to the muscles, which may help them heal. ~ Kristyn K.

Massage is a general term describing the massage therapist pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes even forearms, elbows, or feet are used. Each of our Massage Therapists is trained to help you find the massage therapy style right for you.
Massage has been practiced for thousands of years and is no longer viewed as a “pampering” service. People are looking for more than relief from their symptoms and are seeking healthier long term solutions as well as preventative maintenance for their overall health.
“We found the benefits of massage are about as strong as those reported for other effective treatments: medications, acupuncture, exercise, and yoga,” said ~ Dan Cherkin, Ph.D., a lead author of the study.”
