What did you do the last time you bumped your head or had a sore muscle? More than likely, you rubbed it. Throughout time, touching has been a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and healers in all countries and cultures have developed a wide range of therapeutic techniques using touch.

Having a massage does more than just relax your body and your mind — there are specific physiological and psychological benefits related to massage, ranging from calming the nervous system and reducing tension and anxiety, to improving circulation which allows the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, stimulating the lymphatic system which carries away the body’s waste products, and helping with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, and muscle spasms.

In the soothing environment of our centrally located Manhattan, New York offices, our massage therapists work under the direction of our physiatrist (MD) who pinpoints the problem area. “Our massage therapists will use a variety of techniques to promote healing and relaxation, as well as to promote greater flexibility and range of motion,” says Dr. Kessler . “Massage helps to improve blood circulation, decrease pain and inflammation, helps to relax the muscles, and makes you feel better.”
