What Massage IS
- Our system of Swedish, classic Western massage is a non-specific system of stroking, kneading and frictioning the supported tissues of the body.
- Through its bodywork and related energy-focusing techniques, massage therapy can affect body balance and thus benefit healing.
- Massage therapy is not involved in diagnosis or in "healing" any specific health complaint. The work of a licensed massage practitioner facilitates the body’s natural healing potential and self-restoration.
