Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, consisting primarily of manual techniques such as applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and moving muscles and body tissues. Massage therapy is one of the most versatile, most effective forms of treatment to relieve structural issues in the body, and can treat muscle imbalance.

Swedish massage is the most commonly used form of massage involving long gliding strokes, kneading, and friction techniques on the superficial layers of muscles. It is used to promote general relaxation, improve circulation, relieve muscle tension and range of motion.

Deep tissue massage involves slow strokes, direct pressure, or friction directed across the grain of the muscles. It is applied with greater pressure and to deeper layers of muscle effective for chronic muscular tension

Neuromuscular massage is a form of deep massage that is applied to individual muscles primarily used to release trigger points and also to increase blood flow. It is often used to reduce pain

Acupressure applies finger or thumb pressure to specific points located on the energy pathways in order to release blocked energy along these meridians that cause physical discomfort. The rebalance of energy flow releases tension and restores function of organs and muscles in the body
