Therapeutic Massage is one of the oldest, most versatile treatment techniques on the planet. The benefits of massage 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 muscle tone, enhance blood flow and healing, relieve pain, and sooth a stress out nervous system.
At AltaVie, we have three fabulous Registered Massage Therapists, Kristin Jones, Jen Cuddington, and Hilary Krumm. They each have their own special interests and areas of focus. Review their personal profile on our staff page or call the office today to find out who is the best fit for you!
