Massage Therapy


Massage Therapy Services

Munson Healthcare provides a range of affordable massage therapy services in Grayling and Prudenville. In addition, we provide specialized massage services for cancer patients, their caregivers, and the community in Traverse City.

Massage therapy is an ancient healing practice that uses skillful touch to help balance our bodies and enhance our wellbeing. Not just for people with injuries, massage helps our bodies fight off pain and tension caused by emotional stress, repetitive movement, overuse, disease, or even surgery or cancer treatment. 

What Massage Can Do for You

Massage does much more than just help you relax. It can help your body function and feel better in many beneficial ways, including:

  • Ease any pain, tension, and stiffness you’re feeling
  • Increase your flexibility and range of motion
  • Improve the ability for nutrition and oxygen to reach all cells in your body, improving your metabolism
  • Encourage toxins and wastes that can “hide” in your cells and tissue to leave, helping prevent side effects such as illness, headaches, and more
  • Stop foreign elements from attacking your body
  • Promote body awareness to help you have better self-control over your physical and emotional symptoms

What to Expect During Your First Massage

It is normal to feel a little nervous about scheduling a massage – especially when you’re not sure what to expect. When you come in for your first massage appointment with us, your massage therapist will begin by discussing any concerns you may have, including your specific pain, stiffness, or tension zones. This conversation will help determine the best type of massage therapy for your needs.

Your privacy is a top priority to us.  To ensure that you feel comfortable throughout your massage, we’ll keep linens draped over you with only the area being massaged exposed.
