Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the practice of kneading and manipuating muscles and other tissue to improve well-being and overall health. It includes moving and applying pressure to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. A wide variety of techniques whcih vary in the manner in which touch, pressure, and intensity of the treatment is applied.

After struggling with hip and lower back pain and countless doctors visits, the certified and licensed massage therapists in the Wellness Suite have finally brought me relief. Working together towards a goal of being pain free, I have not felt this physically good in years. I would highly recommend this very qualified staff. ”
