Welcome to The Gentle Place Massage Therapy, where our intention is to help you feel better, move better and live better.
Did you know that Massage is one of the oldest recorded health practices? It was mentioned in ancient Chinese Medical texts written over 4000 years ago!
Anyone who has ever had a massage can attest to how great it makes you feel… but it doesn’t just FEEL good, it’s good FOR you! Receiving a massage actually shifts your nervous system from “fight or flight”, which can have a negative impact on our health, and returns it to a state of “relaxation” where your body can then begin to heal itself.
Studies show that massage has a positive impact on everything from chronic pain like headaches, arthritis and fibromyalgia, to prenatal depression, autism, and autoimmune disorders such as asthma and diabetes. It also lowers blood pressure and boosts immunity.
At The Gentle Place, our massage therapists are experts in the field. They will help you feel comfortable and relaxed, relieve your pain and stress, and even give you tools to help you keep your body in balance.
And remember, massage doesn’t just feel good, it’s good for you!
