Massage therapy is beneficial for persons who are medically well, and for those who have health concerns.

Stress can manifest itself in the form of fatigue, muscle tightness, irritability and body aches. Massage helps to relieve tension, making you feel more relaxed and at ease.

Massage can also relieve symptoms of:

  • Arthritis, back and neck problems
  • Asthma
  • Depression
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms
  • Other chronic conditions
