Massage Therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing, with references in medical texts to its use about 4,000 years ago.  It is widely accepted as an effective treatment for reducing stress, decreasing muscle pain and stiffness, and for aiding in rehabilitation and postural realignment.
