What is massage and how can I benefit?  

Today, more and more people look to alternative medicine and complimentary modalities in their search for stress and
pain relief and as a way of bringing their whole selves back to balance.  The above question is one that is being asked
by an ever growing number of the population.  Massage is defined as the intentional manipulation of the bodies soft
tissues to enhance overall health, well-being and healing.  This manual manipulation is administered through specific
techniques that encourage safe touch and facilitate movement (such as stretching).  Each technique has a specific
purpose in the massage from assisting venous (blood) return to the heart,  to softening adhesions and creating more
mobile scar tissue.
