The Power of Healing Touch: Massage Therapy that Makes a Difference

Balance is an essential factor in every aspect of life: to counter the negative, to remedy the ailment, to heal an injury, to strengthen the weak, and to balance the mind and body.  Through traditional and our signature massage therapies, we help you achieve your goal of balance to regain your physical and emotional health. With the oversight of Dr. Robert Koch and our licensed therapists, the massage therapy treatments at Essential Mind and Body help you attain that essential balance.

“I have been suffering for years with joint pain and my range of motion was decreasing.  The massage therapists at EMB take the time to get to know my body and their massages are the best I’ve ever had.  My joint pain has gone away and I’m moving the best I have in years.  There are so many massage therapy places around town these days, I finally found a place that cares.” 
– Cheryl

Conditions Best Treated with Massage


Massage therapy may help the body in many ways.  Massage can relax muscle tissue, which may lead to decreased nerve compression, increased joint space which can relieve joint tension, and increased the range of motion. This may lead to reduced pain and improved function.


Massage has been clinically proven to help reduce the pain, stiffness and tender points most often associated with such conditions as sports injuries and fibromyalgia. The most commonly accepted reason for this relief is that massage helps reset the central nervous system and enhances the production of certain pain blockers, including endorphins, serotonin, and norepinephrine. These hormones work to counteract pain signals conducted by the brain, and this helps explain why massage offers such dramatic pain relief.
