What is Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapy is defined as the systematic and scientific manipulation of all the soft tissues in the body to improve and maintain health.  Benefits of massage therapy include:

  • stress relief
  • muscular pain relief
  • increased range of motion
  • sports injury recovery
  • pre and post sports event muscle work
  • scar tissue softening
  • increased energy
  • better frame of mind (mental and emotional)

and so many more.

Some common and modern ailments that respond well to therapeutic bodywork include:

  • headaches and migraines
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • sciatica
  • ‘frozen shoulder’
  • TMJD
  • fibromyalgia
  • plantar fasciitis
  • fluid retention
  • post surgical restrictions
  • spinal imbalances
  • nerve impingement
  • ‘tennis’ or ‘golfer’s elbow’
  • sinus problems

Everyone can benefit, so please allow me to introduce you or someone you know to the wonderful world of healing through therapeutic bodywork!

Be well, Shannon Gilmartin CMT CMCE
