Massage therapy is one of the most popular healing modalities in medicine that is useful in aiding the body to heal itself. Therapeutic massage is performed by a licensed massage therapist with the intended outcome of positively affecting health and well being of the client/patient. It involves manual manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body with a degree of sensitivity on the therapist’s part in order to determine the optimal amount of pressure to use for each person.
There are a broad variety of health benefits that can be achieved as well as an overall improvement in the functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal and nervous systems. This complementary form of medicine is a powerful ally in your health care regimen.

Is an individualized therapeutic healing modality that involves scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body in a safe and compassionate environment
This is a therapeutic massage that is tailored to individual clients needs incorporating a variety of techniques or modalities in addition to massage. It addresses the body as a “whole unit.”
Holistic massage affects not only the physical body, but the spiritual, emotional, and mental bodies as well. When we work on the interconnected bodies as a whole, we allow the natural healing abilities to come forth and restore a sense of balance and well-being. When a client feels nurtured and supported, he/she will then allow the body’s deep intelligence to let go of old patterns and limitations thereby allowing muscle tension to fall away naturally.
Not all techniques will be used every time, as Mary tailors each session to fit the client based on how he/she shows up on that day. If you would like to experience a specific one, have one you prefer, or have questions about any of these, please let me know.
