Seal Beach, California 90740
"My favorite massage experience is when a client comes to see me and they aren’t quite sure what type of massage they want/need. The client explains their various symptoms to me, I present them with some of my technique options, and together we choreograph their massage. Once their massage is complete, as they walk out of the room with an ear to ear smile, the only thing that comes out of their mouth is, “amazing”."

Who can practice massage in Santa Cruz?
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 Santa Cruz 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 Santa Cruz LMT must then pass a certification exam.
What are the benefits of Santa Cruz massage?
Clients use massage in Santa Cruz 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 Santa Cruz can help prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increase the flow of lymph, and improve sleep. Santa Cruz 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 Santa Cruz 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.
