What is Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy is the assessment, treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissues and joints of the body. This non-invasive, natural approach offers an alternative health care option in which one can participate in managing their own well-being. Massage Therapy is an effective non-toxic modality used to reduce acute and chronic pain as well as stress and tension. The type of massage offered at The Premiere Clinic is “Swedish Massage” “Deep Tissue” Sports Massage and Pregnancy Massage which incorporates a variety of manipulations to facilitate the healing process.
Our Massage Therapy services are integrated into other treatment programs (Physical Therapy, Chiropractic treatments etc.) and may be covered by your insurance.

The positive effects of massage for your health
Regular sessions of massage therapy are usually accompanied by a healthy drop in raised blood pressure levels. Some studies have even found that if delivered consistently, massage therapy can reduce both lower and upper blood pressure. It can even reduce trigger sources of tension, hostility, anxiety, and depression.
Massage Therapy Improves Circulation
Although a single massage will be enjoyable, the effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body mechanism, and so help to prevent unnecessary strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension and any resulting structural weaknesses. Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system-depending upon what is required by the individual-and thus help reduce fatigue, leaving the patient with a feeling of replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually. Massage Therapy is included in the patient treatment program when appropriate. Massage techniques include athletic/sports massage, therapeutic/rehab massage, pregnancy, Swedish and deep tissue massage as well.
