What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a safe and effective treatment for relieving aches, pains, tense muscles, promoting tissue health, softening scars and adhesions, and improving overall body function. However, the type of therapy depends on their specific issue, injury, and overall health.

Swedish Massage

This is one of the most popular types of massage therapy treatments. A trained therapist uses a combination of strokes such as gliding, kneading, vibration, percussion, and friction. The movements alternate between slow and quick strokes and levels of varying pressure to improve the body's natural blood flow and stimulate the lymphatic system. Swedish massage is an excellent choice for those with osteoarthritis or any restricted movement or muscle pain from previous injuries.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is designed to work on the body's connective tissues to improve blood flow and release toxins in the muscles. Many people confuse deep tissue with Swedish massage because of its similarity. But, in deep tissue massage, the therapist works against the muscle grains. This massage therapy can help those who suffer from muscle strains, sore shoulders, posture problems, lower back pain, stiff neck, muscle tension, and fibromyalgia.

Trigger Point Massage

This is a massage therapy used to relieve pain by massaging the "trigger points" to relieve "tight knots" of the muscles. Instead of just treating the surface pain, this therapy aims to eliminate pain by finding the trigger points and applying gentle and consistent pressure for relief.

Sports Massage

Post-event sports massage is performed to relieve pain, swelling, remove metabolic waste, and reduce recovery time. It is also an excellent treatment option that can address injuries, muscular imbalances, and help athletes achieve optimal performance.
