The Art of Massage Therapy
Massage is one of the oldest healing arts. Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more.
We have Certified Massage Therapists who understand the various conditions that we all endure.

A woman’s body goes through tremendous changes during pregnancy, when rapid weight gain causes a change in her center of gravity and her posture.
As a woman’s abdomen grows, the curve of her lower back increases and her knees rotate outwards. These changes put extra strain on the muscles of the hips and lower back. The benefits of receiving prenatal massage from an experienced therapist include:
- Reduced edema (swelling) and pain associated with pregnancy
- Relief from anxiety, stress and/or depression caused by pregnancy’s hormonal changes
- Relief from fatigue, headaches, leg pain & cramps, constipation, nausea & indigestion
Additional benefits include
Keeping skin supple to help prevent stretch marks, strengthens muscles in preparation for labor & delivery, helps control blood pressure, relieves pain associated with pressure on the sciatic nerve in the buttocks and back of leg, allows for deeper breathing, enhances self-image, maintains posture and body balance and strengthens the immune system. It is important to check with your doctor for a list of contraindications that may apply to you.
Typically a mother should avoid massage therapy in the first trimester.
For more information or if you have any questions if you are the right candidate for massage therapy, check with your Physician or inquire with our certified massage therapist.
Will my Insurance cover it?
The services of a massage therapist may be reimbursed by a Flex Benefit or reserve that you have set up through your employer. Unfortunately, we cannot bill your insurance carrier directly for massage therapy. If you would like a receipt from your date of treatment, we will be happy to provide that to you so you may submit for reimbursement.
