Therapeutic massage seeks to obtain a therapeutic benefit, basic therapeutic massage techniques are derived from a variety of massage styles to not only relax your whole body but at the same time, work through some of the muscle issues or “tight spots” you may be experiencing.
Therapeutic Massage is the best remedy to bring you down out of your active brain and give you that all important ‘time out’.
All ages will benefit from therapeutic massage, it is also suitable for people with disabilities, and people in treatment for medical conditions, some people such as athletes, laborers or stressed out office workers, receive regular therapeutic massage to keep themselves in good physical condition. You can use therapeutic massage as a standalone treatment or part of a larger care plan.
How Does a Therapeutic Massage Help You?
Therapeutic Massage therapy improves your circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products or reduce swelling. These circulatory effects of massage may have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
Massage therapy induces a relaxation response, which lowers your heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure; plus boosts your immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress. These effects suggest that massage may be helpful for a wide range of conditions.
Kerry integrates many different techniques including Chapmans Reflex's, MET, Reiki, Yoga Stretches, and more, which will be a little different to your average massage to ensure your getting the results you want.

When are the Best Times for a Therapeutic Massage?
For optimal results and less potential for muscle soreness the day post-massage, having a regular massage will keep your body from not only reacting to the positive change we are trying to provide, but it can also retrain your body to help itself and provide you with a better healthier you.
The best time for a therapeutic massage is when you feel yourself getting worked up or when you are just not feeling your best.
Others find a regular therapeutic massage every month or two to be a great dose of prevention therapy.
We even have some highly stressed patients who have weekly massages just to cope with daily life.
For advice specific to your therapeutic needs, please ask your massage therapist how regularly they feel that you should have a massage to function optimally.
