Why Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a treatment approach which is growing in popularity and demand. This form of therapy involves hands-on techniques to increase circulation, relieve tension, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body, as well as many other benefits. The body’s soft tissue areas include the muscles, tendons, connective tissue, etc.
Swedish massage is a gentle type of full body massage that is ideal for people who: are new to massage, have a lot of tension, and are sensitive to touch. It is a great choice for those wanting to relax during a massage.
Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage. It’s a good option if you have chronic muscle problems, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance. It can help relieve tight muscles, chronic muscle pain, and anxiety.
Trigger point massages are best suited for people who have injuries, chronic pain, or a specific issue or condition. Sometimes areas of tightness in the muscle tissues, known as trigger points, can cause pain in other parts of the body. By focusing on relieving trigger points, this type of massage can reduce pain. Trigger point massage uses broad, flowing strokes that are gentle and relaxing combined with stronger, deeper pressure at times.
