Massage is a scientific method that involves the treatment of superficial areas of the body -that may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels and organs of the gastrointestinal system; with physical, therapeutic and emotional purposes. Etymologically, the word comes from French and its literal meaning is “friction of kneading”.
The patient’s body is manipulated trough rubbing, kneading, stroking, slapping or vibration which can be structured or not depending of the modality of the massage (There are more than a hundred forms including the Eastern styles that are based on the body’s energy such as Acupressure; and the Western styles that are focused on anatomical knowledge like Swedish massage). The pressure applied is done with the hands, fingers, elbows, forearm, and feet, or employing any of the various mechanical devices.
Our massage therapists are extensively trained in a variety of techniques for the ultimate in relaxation and tension release. To find the massage that best meets your needs, please inquire with our spa concierge for details.

A Powerful Ally

There is no denying the power of bodywork.  Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related.  And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress.  While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can without a doubt, help manage stress.  

This translates into:
Decreased anxiety.
Enhanced sleep quality.
Greater energy.
Improved concentration.
Increased circulation.
Reduced fatigue.
Furthermore,  clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage.  The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.

Profound Effects of a Massage

In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects.  Research shows that with massage:
Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.
​Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow.
Burn injury patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.
Preterm infants have improved weight gainResearch continues to show the enormous benefits of touch--which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles.  Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat post surgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.

Increase the Benefits of a Massage with Frequent Visits

Getting a massage can do you a world of good.  And getting massage frequently can do even more.  This is the beauty of bodywork.  Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you'll be and how youthful you'll remain with each passing year.  Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health.  And remember:  just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn't mean it is any less therapeutic.  Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
