You've been to doctor. Nothing shows up on the X-ray. You've been told nothing is wrong. That's good! It means there are no breaks or tears, that there is nothing organically wrong. But it still hurts! That means the pain is most likely soft tissue. It's something that can be released! You can reclaim your spunk. Problems of mobility and pain can usually be traced to some old injury, even from 20 or 30 or more years ago. Auto accidents, ski injuries, falls - they all take their toll on the body. That physical trauma can be released easily and gently, giving a person more FREEDOM and RELEASE from pain!

Who can practice massage in Oakland?
Most states have licensing requirements that must be met before a practitioner (a 'masseuse' or 'masseur') can use the title 'Massage Therapist', and some states require a license to practice any form of massage. Licensed Massage Therapists in Oakland have obtained the highest level of authentication. They must complete academic coursework in anatomy and physiology, as well as on the application of massage and bodywork, business and ethics, and specialized massage techniques. The Oakland LMT must then pass a certification exam.
What are the benefits of Oakland massage?
Clients use massage in Oakland because it relieves pain from muscle aches and sprains, muscle injuries and other causes of pain. It reduces stress and helps clients relax, and can decrease feelings of anxiety and depression by stimulating the release of endorphins and serotonin. Massage therapy in Oakland can help prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increase the flow of lymph, and improve sleep. Oakland massage therapy can help rehabilitate sports injuries.

How does massage work?
Massage involves working and acting on the body using pressure from the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, or feet of the massage therapist. The Oakland massage therapist focuses on muscles, tendons, ligaments, myofacia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
