What Are The Benefits of Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy can help you reduce pain, relax, and relieve stress.
The long-term benefits of this type of therapy include improved blood circulation and reduced blood pressure.
What Is Trigger Point Massage Therapy?
In trigger point massage therapy, the therapist isolates and targets constricted muscles in the back or neck. During the massage, the patient often actively participates in deep breathing and helps identify the exact location and intensity of the pain.
Can I Get A Massage If I Am Pregnant?
Yes. Unless your physician advises against it, massage during pregnancy is not only safe but an excellent way for the expectant mom to relax, reduce edema (swelling) and even eliminate sciatic pain brought on by the pregnancy. In addition, a prenatal massage is an excellent way for both the mom and the baby to improve oxygenation in the soft tissues and muscles.
What Is Deep Tissue And Swedish Massage?
The therapist uses deeper pressure to release chronic muscle tension in a deep tissue massage. The therapist focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia.
In a Swedish massage, the therapist’s goal is to relax the entire body by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes.
