At Premier Massage, I am committed to offer you the best in massage therapy to maintain a healthy and vibrant lifestyle.  It is my hope this helps you live life to its fullest with improved physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.  It is the goal of Premier Massage to educate its customers and the public on the remarkable benefits massage therapy has to offer (view Premier Massage Brochure).  Massage therapy has a tainted image in the minds of many conjuring up a host of unpleasant thoughts and expectations at the mere mention.  (To distance our legitimate practice (also see CUSTOMER COMMENTS below) from such a stigma, Premier Massage asks to please refrain from using the term "massage parlor" and instead use massage office or massage practice.)  There are others who think of massage therapy as only "fluff" simply useful for relaxing and making someone feel good.  Well guess what? This "fluff" also has remarkable benefits for maintaining good health!  It is one of a few physical therapies that can affect nearly every one of the 10 systems of the human body (MALE or FEMALE!), e.g. circulatory i.e. heart and blood/lymph vessels, integumentary i.e. skin and related structures, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, muscular i.e. muscles and connective tissues, and digestive systems.  In short, massage therapy decreases stress, anxiety/depression, increases mental alertness, minimizes effects from such conditions as psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, etc.; improves sleep patterns (from insomnia/sleep apnea, etc.), improves body image, improves self-esteem, improves lifestyle habits, increases physical well-being, etc.  Learn more of the benefits of Swedish Massage Therapy.  (Learn how regular massage may benefit your career!)
 
It is widely known Bob Hope valued massage therapy and credited it, in part, for his youthful vibrancy well into his long life (Bob Hope lived to be 100 years old!).  It is also known Bob Hope did have a personal massage therapist to give him a daily massage.  Today, a massage a day is typically only experienced by wealthier people who recognize the value massage therapy has to offer - and of course who can afford it.  However, there is ample evidence indicating massage therapy on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis still offers amazing benefits.  Premier Massage asks its clients to "listen" to their bodies for just how often they should receive a massage, as it varies among the various body types.  Therefore, sessions more frequently than monthly or biweekly may be necessary.  Premier Massage has clients span the range of those who receive a massage twice weekly to those on a monthly basis.
 
Premier Massage also offers medical massage.  Medical massage differs from relaxation, or Swedish, massage in that it works specifically on an area of pain with more direct and generally stronger pressure.  (Note: while some believe bruising is necessary to bring pain relief during medical massage, pain relief at Premier Massage is often obtained quickly and without bruising by medical massage clients.)  Medical massage is generally very relaxing to those in pain.  It should be understood constant communication between massage therapist and client is of the utmost importance at Premier Massage to minimize an unpleasant experience.  Also important is the comfort and modesty of my clients.  Thus, I would like my clients to feel as comfortable as possible during their sessions.  The medical conditions that may benefit greatly from medical massage are too numerous to list but a short list includes sleep deprivation due to pain, migraine/tension headaches, neck pain (whiplash), lumbago (back pain), disc herniation, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fascitis, arthritis, cancer, MS, fibromyalgia, lupus, frozen shoulder, lymphedema, rotator cuff injury, and strain/sprain injury.  For a more extensive (but by no means exhaustive) list see the benefits of medical massage therapy.
