Relaxing Massage



San Clemente, CA

Sometimes we just need a break.  A relaxing light to moderate pressure massage incorporating effleurage strokes, skin rolling etc can be exactly what the body needs to unwind and reduce overall stress and inflammation.  While much of the work done in Physical Therapy and Manual Therapy tends to be heavy handed in nature and can be somewhat intense when receiving it, a nice relaxing massage has its place in therapy.  Stress can be a major contributor to chronic illness and inflammation so releasing that stress through gentle massage can be very beneficial to our overall health and wellbeing.  Massage is not necessarily a luxury, as perceived by many, but has been practiced for thousands of years to maintain a healthy mind, body, and soul.
