Massage can benefit people of all ages
Massage is the practice of manual manipulation of the body’s muscle and soft tissue structure. As one of the oldest healing arts, it therapy is a great way to relax your body, lower your heart rate and blood pressure, reduce recovery time, improve your range of motion, increase blood circulation and soothe sore muscles.
The licensed massage therapists at Mercyhealth use a variety of techniques, from therapeutic and deep tissue to stretching and relaxation. Massages are offered in 30-, 45- or 60-minute sessions. Benefits may include increased range of motion and flexibility, stress reduction, pain relief and improved circulation. Most patients report an increased sense of physical awareness and emotional well being.
