Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has become popular among people to get relief from daily life stress, pain and injuries. Using soft-tissue manipulation techniques, massage reduces stress and fatigue, while improving circulation. Depending on the style of massage, techniques may include stroking, kneading, rocking, tapping or holding steady pressure.
At the Back2Life Wellness and Rehab professional massage therapists are treating patients with complicated medical conditions using various massage techniques to enhance general health.

Some of the general benefits of massage therapy may include:

  1. Physical relaxation

  2. Improved circulation, which nourishes cells and improves waste elimination

  3. Relief for tight muscles and other aches and pains

  4. Release of nerve compression (carpel tunnel, sciatica)

  5. Greater flexibility and range of motion

  6. Enhanced energy and vitality

Some clinical styles may help heal scar tissue as well as tendon, ligament, and muscle tears
