Massage Therapy 

What is Massage therapy?

Massage therapy uses pressure and touches on the body to operate soft tissue to loosen up and feel relaxed, especially after you experience a very stressful moment. Contact NorthStar integrated health and physical medicine center to book an appointment with our holistic physiotherapist.

Why is massaging good for you and your soft tissues? 

Your body muscles contain different minor and thin fibers that work together to activate your muscle groups. Your muscles and these bones are combined by a connective tissue known as tendons, which allows for the movement of your body parts. Your bones are linked with tough bands of connective tissues known as ligaments for better firmness. These ligaments comprise another connective tissue identified as fascia that protects it. 

The status of soft tissues in your body offers stability and mobility at the joints and strength required to do other actions. Although soft tissues have different benefits to the body, they can also limit you from harmful or extreme activities that can cause damage, such as stress from regular exercise and athletic training. Holistic care can assist in loosening and comforting your muscles and give your body a healthier condition to perform well.

How can holistic therapy improve the condition of your health?
