For many of us, stiffness, pain, and stress are a way of life to which we have habituated. It is not until we receive a massage that we experience a body that can breathe, stand, and move freely without pain. At Advanced Health Massage Therapy, our therapists have extensive knowledge in anatomy, physiology, rehabilitation, and body mechanics that supports advanced massage therapy skills. We take pride in providing a safe and supportive environment with caring and effective therapy based on individual needs.
