For thousands of years, people have been getting massages to feel more relaxed and to ease tired muscles. As a complementary therapy, massage is often overlooked as a true medical intervention, but research shows that massage therapies, such as our sports massage, Active Release Technique®, deep tissue massage and signature massage, have far-reaching benefits for adults and children.
What is Massage Therapy?
Any manipulation of the body that is performed with a person’s hands is considered massage therapy. Several techniques exist to target specific anatomical structures, such as the bones, joints, connective tissues and trigger points. Massage is shown to be beneficial for alleviating:
- Limited mobility
Massage is often integrated into physical therapy treatment plans to promote properly healing and body mechanics.
Types of Massage
As massage therapy has grown in popularity, techniques are being introduced from other parts of the world. We offer:
- Sports Massage for the soft tissues to promote blood flow and enhance healing and recovery
- Active Release Technique®for the ligaments, tendons, nerves and muscles after strains, tears, spasms and other musculoskeletal issues
- Deep Tissue Massage is a slower and more concentrated type of massage that targets the soft tissues at all levels
- Nubo Signature Massage utilizes advanced techniques to help with common problems and allow patients to feel refreshed and rejuvenated

The risks associated with massage therapy are minimal. It is important that you discuss any medical conditions, injuries, and medications with your massage therapist. This not only ensures that you have an enjoyable massage therapist but also helps us to tailor the massage to your unique needs.
