Deep Tissue Massage and Therapeutic Massage
We offer two main types of massage we use to treat pain. We offer deep tissue massage and therapeutic massage.
Deep tissue massage is great for relieving pain. The massage therapist goes deep into the muscles and connective tissues to increase blood circulation, which helps to reduce inflammation and swelling as well as relax the muscles. This type of massage helps to get your joints functioning better and relieves tension built up in the muscles. It can also improve your posture by releasing that tension. Massaging the deepest layer of the muscles can assist in recovery from injury as well, such as a car accident injury, and increase mobility.
Therapeutic massage is different from deep tissue because it does not focus on the deep layers of the muscles. This type of massage focuses on making structural improvements within your body. Therapeutic massages help your body recover from injuries and can help increase your range of motion by relieving muscle spasms. Even if you are not recovering from an injury, you can still benefit from a therapeutic massage as it helps your body relax and provides you with stress relief.
Massage therapy is great for restoring the body back into balance and relieving knots, pain, and tension. It is important to stay hydrated before and after the massage to decrease the chances of discomfort and increase the benefits you will receive from the massage. This great treatment option soothes your musculoskeletal system and can be enhanced when used in combination with chiropractic care.
