What is massage therapy? Massage therapy refers to the manual manipulation of soft tissues in the body to promote pain relief, muscle relaxation and healing. Massage therapists typically use their hands to provide treatment, but may also use elbows, knees or forearms depending on the situation. Deep tissue massage and therapeutic massage are common types of massage therapy. We offer massage therapy at our clinic as a non-surgical treatment for a range of injuries and health conditions. After an initial assessment, we will create a specific treatment program that’s customized just for you to finally get you the solution you’ve been searching for.
When you book an appointment at our clinic for massage therapy, you can feel confident that we will find the underlying cause of your pain and not just mask your symptoms with medication.Without addressing the root cause, the symptom, which is usually pain, will continue no matter what you do to find relief.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage penetrates the deeper layers of muscle to manually reset normal resting muscle tone to ease pain and discomfort, and provide relaxation. This type of therapy increases circulation to muscles while separating muscle fibers that become bonded together in knots. It is also effective for breaking up scar tissue and restoring blood flow to affected areas.
Deep tissue techniques also treat active trigger points that can cause pain. Deep, slow movements apply concentrated pressure on trigger points or areas of concern until your pain is relieved.
Deep tissue massage is suitable for treating conditions such as:
- Neck stiffness
- Low back tightness
- Sore shoulders
- Chronic pain and tension
- Sports injuries
- Joint stiffness
- General muscular tension
- Tension headaches
- Mobility issues
As a manual modality, this therapy is ideal for anyone who places strenuous demands on their bodies, such as athletes, individuals required to do repetitive movements for work or those with poor circulation issues. A deep tissue massage can be customized to target problem areas, ease stress, and muscle pain, and increase circulation.
This form of therapy has several benefits such as helping you improve your quality of life and relieving stress. Stimulating and soothing movements create inner balance and harmony for your overall well being. By manipulating soft tissue such as muscle, fascia, and body fluids, therapeutic massage aids in restoring normal function.
Therapeutic manipulation can be used to assist in the treatment of most musculoskeletal and associated problems. Regular therapy results in improved circulatory, lymphatic, and neurological functioning. There are several different types of therapeutic massage, including myofascial massage, sports massage, trigger point therapy and neuromuscular massage.
