What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy involves several skills and techniques used to manipulate the body’s soft tissues to improve physical limitations and overall emotional well-being. Massage Therapy involves oil or lotion applied to the palms of the hands in combination with sustained pressure, rubbing, kneading, and rolling strokes; these techniques help release tension, increase blood flow to the soft tissues, accelerate healing, and provide fast pain relief.
Massage therapy may be beneficial in relieving symptoms, acute and chronic issues, and diseases. Massage therapists at Kalaheo Wellness Center will discuss your concerns in great detail to determine the appropriate techniques and treatment plan for you.
