Massage therapy is a manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body in order to achieve beneficial effects for the body and mind. Basic hand or foot massage can be done by anyone, but true massage therapy can only be conducted by a trained massage therapist.
According to the Mayo Clinic, studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Massage therapy is increasingly being offered in conjunction with standard treatments for a wide range of medical conditions including:
- Digestive disorders
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- High blood pressure
- Poor Posture
- Balance issues
Massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being. Be sure to check out the many massage options available for our members in the Cordia Salon & Spa.
