MASSAGE THERAPY

Here at Muscle and Movement Therapy, massage isn’t just a luxury, it’s a way of life. A tool for our clients to achieve optimal physical and mental health. 

With each massage, clients and patients can expect hands-on evaluation of the soft tissue and utilization of a variety of techniques to ensure the best outcome. This also includes careful consideration of the client's specific wants and needs. For all massages, guests can expect hot towels, hot stones, moist heat packs, cold therapy, therapeutic, deep tissue, relaxation massage and percussion massage techniques, therapeutic stretching and myofascial release ... whatever is needed for the desired outcome.


In addition, our massage therapists are trained in administering RockTape, also known as Kinesio taping, to help prolong the effects of the massage and further recovery/healing.


All these therapies can be done on their own or in conjunction with chiropractic care, athletic training and personal training.
