MASSAGE THERAPY IN SANTA MONICA, CA
Massage therapy is a fundamental companion to be incorporated into your stress management routine. Massage therapy is a natural practice that, among many other uses, reduces stress-levels and lower blood pressure. Reducing stress-levels decreases the stress related hormones that often lead to depression, anxiety, heart attacks, stroke and other stress-induced illnesses.
Massage therapy is most oftenly used to aid in the recovery and rehabilitation of the body after an injury or surgical procedure. Massages increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients into muscle tissue and vital organs. This in turn helps affected muscles to relax and repair more quickly and efficiently.
We at Active Therapy Center take pride in formulating and executing the most personalized treatment plans for each of our individual clients.
