What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to gain a therapeutic response. Soft tissue includes muscles, skin and connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and membranes. Relaxation (sometimes referred to as Swedish Massage) is one of the forms of massage therapy. Massage therapists understand and utilize a range of therapies and techniques, depending on your needs and their particular specialties.
Therapeutic Massage Benefits
Life’s stressors can include work, family and friends – even time off can be stressful! Massage can and should be an important part of your health and well-rounded lifestyle. Massage has shown it has a wide variety of beneficial health benefits that we call it therapy: adding to your health and wellbeing.
Remember a therapeutic massage at Botanica Skin Care means you are taking an active role in your continued wellness – a ‘maintenance plan’ that benefits you in the long and short term!
