You may or may not be an athlete, but you have most likely experienced pain one way or another that has built up from your workplace. Something as simple as typing has the ability to cause you major pain and result in ailments such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Simply sitting in one position for hours on end may be the culprit to your lower back pain. All of these ailments, and many more can be addressed with therapeutic massage.

Therapeutic Massage is the application of massage techniques intended to heal muscle tissue. The techniques can be numerous, all with the intent to increase the body’s own healing properties.
