What IS Massage?
Massage: from the French word meaning “friction of kneading”; massage is an ancient manual (hands-on) treatment of superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissue using a variety of techniques to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity (spasms), inhibit motor-neuron excitability, and promote relaxation and well-being. The type of massage used will vary depending on the condition or circumstances the client presents with, but will always take personal preference into consideration

Not all massage is created equal. The style of bodywork is directly related to the personal desires, or medical needs of the person being worked on.
From the medical style [focused more on breaking up scar tissue, mobilizing joints, lymphatic drainage, and releasing locked tissues] to the stress relieving, relaxation massage [meant to soothe and help decompress], there is a technique for every condition – a benefit for every person.
In the image to the right you see an example of chair massage: usually a short, relaxation massage focused on the neck, upper back, and shoulders. Chair massage is a great way to decompress for a few minutes, and is a nice reward for yourself, or even your employees for a job well done. Balance does monthly outreach to a variety of local businesses, usually taking care of our teachers, police, and firefighters.
If all you have is a moment, just ten minutes can change your perspective on life… and the way your body deals with it. Everyone can use a massage; what’s your excuse?
