What is Massage Therapy?
Serving Portland OR | Vancouver WA
Massage therapy involves the art of massage. A massage therapist will manipulate pain points and stiff areas, stimulating blood flow. Massage therapy can treat chronic pain and discomfort. It’s often prescribed to complement physical therapy and injury rehabilitation treatments.
