What is Massage?
Therapeutic Massage is one of the oldest, most versatile treatment techniques on the planet. The benefits of soft tissue therapy and touch are vast and have been both demonstrated in the research literature and experienced personally by millions world-wide.
Massage Therapy includes the use of very well-trained hands (and sometimes stones or other tools) to relax tight muscles, improve body movement and awareness, regulate muscle tone, enhance blood flow and healing, relieve pain, and sooth a stress out nervous system.
As with all of our practitioners at AltaVie, our RMTs are well versed in prenatal and postnatal care. They do maternity massage and have special pillows and techniques to keep you comfortable.
Each practitioner is unique. We want to facilitate the best fit of skill, personality, and scheduling between you and your massage therapist. Check out our AltaVie Team profiles to read more about each practitioner to find out who you jive with or give the office a call so we can help connect you.
