It’s a fact. Every year, more and more people rely on therapeutic massage and bodywork for relaxation, pain relief, health concerns, rehabilitation and general wellness.

  • Massage may be the oldest form of medical care – Egyptian tomb paintings show people being massaged.*
  • A Chinese book written in 2,700 BC – The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine – recommended the “massage of skin and flesh”.*
  • Today, 39 million American adults – more than one out of every six – get at least one massage each year.**
  • Massage therapy has been proven effective in:
    Relieving back pain
    Boosting immune system
    Reducing anxiety
    Lowering blood pressure
    Treating migraines
    Decreasing carpal tunnel symptoms
    Easing post-operative pain
    Alleviating side effects of cancer**
  • Because massage and bodywork directly or indirectly affects every system of the body, it promotes health, prevents illness and injury, and speeds recovery.
