This site was developed to help introduce the public to the amazing massage technique known as STRUCTURAL MASSAGE THERAPY, a technique I have been practicing for the past 28 years.
This is not a completely new work; it evolved from the practice, studies, dedication and hard work of many of the greats in the field of Massage and Bodywork.
I hope you will take the time to learn more about this truly amazing massage technique. I have done my best to provide a basic understanding of it on this site. But, of course, the only way to truly understand it is to schedule an appointment and experience for yourself how absolutely wonderful STRUCTURAL MASSAGE THERAPY feels! --- Donna Mitchell

What is Structural Massage?
STRUCTURAL MASSAGE THERAPY works gently to re-align the skeletal system by slowly removing the toxins from the muscles and lengthening the connective tissue that runs from muscle to bone.
Stress is the number one cause of toxins in the muscle. When you are stressed, the adrenal gland “pumps” the muscles with adrenal fluid. When you start to relax, the fluid withdraws back into the gland leaving a residue of toxins that stay in the fluid of the muscles. This builds up over time and the result is sore, tight muscles that are painful and prone to injury. Tight muscles then slowly, shrink and shorten the connective tissue to the bone. This “shrinkage” is a major source of joint problems and causes a gradual misalignment of the structure of the skeleton.
STRUCTURAL MASSAGE THERAPY produces a feeling of “lightness” by helping to increase the flow of synovial fluid in the joints and tendons. It re-educates the muscular system with gentle rocking and stretching movements.
STRUCTURAL MASSAGE THERAPY works gently to re-align bones, relax muscles and increase joint mobility. The therapist views the body as an integrated unit so each treatment starts at the feet and massages the whole body, including the neck and head, while focusing on the primary area of pain or dysfunction.
