Our Massage Therapy Treatments
People use massage for a variety of health-related purposes, including relieving pain, rehabilitating sports injuries, reducing stress, increasing relaxation, address anxiety and depression, and aid general wellness. A therapeutic massage also increases circulation and aids in removing toxins in the body.
The term “massage therapy” encompasses many different techniques. In general, therapists press, rub, and otherwise manipulate the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. They most often use their hands and fingers, but may use their forearms, elbows, or feet.
Types of Massage Therapy
Swedish massage, the therapist uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping and is used mostly for relaxation.
Sports massage is adapted specifically to the needs of athletes. Using percussion and deep strokes and focusing on areas and muscles of the body used in their sport to prevent injury and promote faster healing. A Sports Massage is usually done before and after an event.
Other examples are Deep Tissue Massage and Trigger Point Massage, which focus on myofascial trigger points—muscle “knots” that are painful when pressed and can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body.
