Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Massage Therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body.  Massage Therapy consists primarily of manual (hands-on) techniques such as applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and moving muscles and body tissues.  We offer sports, Swedish and deep tissue massage.

Swedish massage techniques are the approach most men and women are familiar with. This type of massage uses gentle, long strokes to help you relax and feel rejuvenated. Some additional massage options include:

  • Deep tissue, using slow, forceful strokes that target deeper muscle layers and connective tissues
  • Sports massage, targeting areas of existing or potential muscle injury  
  • Trigger point massage, focusing on releasing tight knots or bands of muscle fibers
  • Prenatal massage, targeting the areas of the body stressed by the demands of pregnancy

Any type of massage can be customized, so be sure to speak up if you’d like more or less pressure or have an area you’d like to focus on. 

What are some benefits of massage therapy?

Everyone responds to massage differently, but these are some of the most widely reported benefits of massage therapy:

  • Reduced stress
  • Pain relief
  • Improved circulation
  • Better sleep
  • Immunity boost
  • Enhanced flexibility
  • Toxin release
  • Reduction in anxiety and depression
  • Less post-surgery or post-injury swelling

For many men and women, the improvements achieved through regular massage therapy are impressive enough to prompt regular appointments with a trained massage therapist. 

Is massage therapy right for everyone?

Massage therapy is a great option for most men and women, but there are certain conditions that could make you a poor candidate for massage therapy. Be sure to speak with your doctor if you have:

  • Bleeding disorders
  • Severe osteoarthritis
  • Severe thrombocytopenia
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Burns or actively healing wounds
  • Diabetes
  • Fractures

Cancer patients should also get medical clearance for massage and should communicate about their condition with their massage therapist.
