What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy is a type of bodywork that involves using different kinds of touch on the body’s soft tissues.
Licensed massage therapists receive training in various techniques that include anything from light stroking to deep pressure.
Massages provide relief from many kinds of discomfort, whether you suffer from chronic pain, are recovering from an injury, or are just feeling stressed out.
Who should visit a massage therapist?
Besides helping with relaxation and stress relief, massage therapists are equipped to treat muscle or joint pain from conditions including fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, sports injuries, and soft tissue strains and tears.
You should consider adding massage to your health care treatment plan if you regularly feel stiff, achy, or if stress seems to be affecting your health.
The benefits of massage therapy include:
- Relief from chronic pain and muscle tension
- Improved mood
- Increased well-being
- Better sleep
Massage therapy can also help you manage your health conditions and the everyday challenges of life. You may benefit more from your medical care when you combine it with massage.
What massage techniques are available?
The massage therapists at Schrier Family Chiropractic & Regenerative Medicine offer numerous techniques and options including:
- Swedish massage. If you’re interested in massage as a way to relax, reduce your stress, and boost your overall health, consider Swedish massage. This relaxing full body massage aids circulation. It also strengthens the immune system, and improves the function of the nerves, muscles, and glands.
- Deep tissue massage. This full body massage uses stronger pressure than Swedish massage. It’s suitable if you experience deep muscle tension.
