Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.

Massage Therapy Benefits

  1. Stress Reduction: Massage therapy offers a natural way to reduce stress and promote relaxation. The soothing touch and rhythmic movements help lower cortisol levels, leading to improved mood and a sense of well-being.

  2. Pain Relief: Massage can provide effective relief from muscular tension, chronic pain, and soreness by increasing blood flow and releasing tight muscles. It’s particularly beneficial for conditions like back pain, headaches, and sports-related injuries.

  3. Enhanced Circulation: Through manipulation of soft tissues, massage therapy boosts blood circulation, aiding in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells while facilitating the removal of waste products, promoting overall tissue health.

  4. Improved Mental Health: Regular massages have been linked to reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression. The tactile stimulation and relaxation response triggered by massages contribute to improved mental clarity and a more balanced emotional state.

Dr. Gloria is the absolute best! I came in with a lot of back pain. The pain also went to my hips, knees and feet. She recommended spinal decompression. I am 100% pain free and my mobility & flexibility are back to great. When I came in all I expected was some relief from pain. I got more than that….pain is gone.
