What is massage therapy? Whether it’s Swedish or Deep tissue, the theory behind massage therapy is to manipulate muscle tissue in effort to obtain its integrity.  What’s more, understanding the purpose of each massage technique applied while identifying the appropriate techniques for your body starts the foundation for optimal health.

There are two beneficial effects massage has on the body, mechanical and reflexive.  Mechanical effects are the direct physical effects of the massage techniques on the tissues being manipulated.  Reflexive effects are indirect responses to touch that affect body functions and tissues throughout the nervous or energy systems of the body.  

In a client-therapist relationship, we work together in creating a treatment plan according to the body’s need in this ongoing process.  When you work with Oasis Therapy, we discuss a strategic plan for your health goals and break it into small steps so you see results.  Most importantly, the client’s follow-through in terms of self care is just as significant to the success of a treatment.
