The Body Therapy Shop provides therapeutic massage, bodywork and physical therapy. The bodywork techniques offered are a result of extensive continuing education and clinical experience. Our philosophy is to help clients relieve stress-induced muscle or joint pain, rediscover their body awareness, and improve their physical ability leading to greater comfort with daily activities.

Keep in mind that today’s lifestyles can be extremely stressful resulting in muscle tension and body aches that impair your daily physical and mental performance. The World Health Organization recently released a statement that stress-related illnesses of the Heart, Gastrointestinal, Emotional and Musculoskeletal Systems account for 75-90% of doctors’ office visits. Bodywork techniques purge and refresh your neuromuscular system providing relief from stress-related body aches while enhancing your sense of well being. Massage is fast becoming an adjunct therapy for rehabilitation, healthy lifestyles and wellness programs throughout the country.
