Health and Wellness through Massage
Greetings! My name is Christopher Morrison LMT and I would like to welcome you to Your Best Massage. My goal is to provide you with the best service possible, whether that is in my office or in the comfort of your own home. I specialize in Swedish "Traditional" Massage, Deep Tissue and Trigger Point Therapy, and (everyone's favorite) Hot Stone Massage. I studied in Charlotte, NC at Therapeutic Massage Training Institute, a small school that provided a lot of practical hands-on experience. I then honed my experience at Charlotte Bodyworks/ProHealth and Wellness Chiropractic. My wife and I moved to Denver, Colorado in January 2016 and we love it here! The mountains, the lifestyle, the weather....perfect! Below is a bit of information about how massage can help you. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY
There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments. Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being.
Massage therapy can be an important part of your health maintenance plan by:
- Reducing or eliminating pain.
- Improving joint mobility.
- Improving circulation.
- Improving lymphatic drainage.
- Reducing muscular tension.
Massage therapy can be used for the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. It may be used with a wide variety of patients, of all ages, in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability.
Massage Therapists today use their knowledge of physiology and anatomy to combine traditional Swedish and modern massage therapy techniques with other therapies to treat their clients. There has been a wide variety of research, published in peer reviewed journals, proving the benefits of massage therapy for various conditions.
The following is a list of conditions for which massage therapy, when provided by a Licensed Massage Therapist, can prove beneficial:
Anxiety and depression
|Asthma and Emphysema|
|Back, leg, and neck pain||Cancer symptoms|
|Carpal tunnel syndrome (repetitive strain)||Chronic Fatigue syndrome|

Massage Therapy can also be used as part of a preventative care program. This includes sports training, injury prevention, ongoing stress management, and more! Together, you and I will develop a treatment plan based on your needs. The treatment plan can be changed at any time and you have no obligation to undergo any part of treatment. Your treatment begins after you've given your informed consent.
