What are the Benefits of Therapeutic Massage?

Therapeutic Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine.


It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of therapeutic massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.

  • Digestive disorders

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Headaches

  • Increasing Range of Motion

  • Injury recovery
