About Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is essential to self-care practices aimed at reducing pain and muscular tension, recovering from physical injuries, reducing stress and fatigue, enhancing energy, and promoting overall health and wellness. A massage therapy session can focus on general relaxation and stress relief, a specific therapeutic goal such as relieving back pain, or both.
Wellness Roots offers a variety of massages from which to choose, and we will work with you to customize your massage session to meet your own unique needs and preferences.
