Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. Massaging the skin, the body’s largest organ, creates a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all regulatory systems of the body. There are many types and techniques of massage that be incorporated into treatment to provide a unique experience for each client. Massage can be energy based, muscle based, or a combination of both depending on the therapist and client. All massage therapists at Elevate operate independently and are fully NYS licensed and insured.
