Massage Therapy’s Benefits

Massage therapy entails the manual treatment of the body tissues such as the skin, muscles, tendons, nerves, fascia, ligaments, and the underlying joints.

Hands-on techniques are applied to address each layer to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain. Relaxing muscle tension, and soothing of the nervous system facilitate a reduction in pain, stiffness, a greater ease of movement, and an overall sense of well being.

Massage Therapy is also used to decrease symptoms associated with stress, such as poor sleep, anxiety, fatigue, low mood, agitation, and jaw pain; just to name a few.

What to Expect

Techniques are most often applied directly to the skin. You will be covered with a sheet and blanket, with just one area at a time uncovered.   Alternatively you may wear loose athletic clothing, allowing treatment to be preformed clothed.  Your comfort is vital and respected.  The treatment plan discussed will specify the areas to be treated with your consent before each session.

The amount of pressure used, again is guided by you.  Jennifer will fine tune the amount of pressure that is ideal.  This can vary both individually, and given different conditions. Giving honest feedback will allow for the most effective treatment.
