What is Massage Therapy? 

Massage Therapy is the treatment of disorders of the human body by the systematic external application of touch, stroking, friction, vibration, percussion, kneading, stretching, compression, and passive joint movements. 

 What Does Massage Therapy Feel Like?

There are over 80 different individual types and techniques of Massage Therapy. For this reason it is hard to predict exactly what you will feel as any one of them is being applied. Some techniques use less pressure than the weight of a hand, while others press intensely into certain points to release muscles. Discuss with your therapist what techniques they intend to use for your specific health concerns and what they should feel like being applied. During the course of the treatment you should tell your therapist what you feel and your comfort level with the sensations. Such as if a certain technique or level of pressure causes you pain; you will need to inform the therapist so they can address it.

 What Diseases or Ailments Can Massage Therapy Treat?

Different techniques of Massage Therapy are used to address different ailments/diseases:

  • Respiratory disorders, such as sinus pressure can be relieved through trigger point release, congestive chest symptoms can be relieved through tapotement;
  • Neurological and muscular disorders, such as headaches, migraines, neck pain, tennis elbow, low back pain, frozen shoulder, and pain associated with osteoarthritis, tendonitis, menstrual symptoms; can all be addressed through Cranio-Sacral Release, Swedish massage, Myo-Fascial Release and a variety of other techniques;
  • Digestive disorders, such as constipation can be relieved through abdominal techniques;
  • Post-Operative discomfort and Lymphedema can also be addressed with Lymphatic Drainage

Massage Therapy is very assistive in resolving physical problems related to stress and emotional conditions.

Are There Overall Health Benefits From Massage Therapy?

  • Increases joint range of motion and strength
  • Increases blood and lymph function
  • Facilitates response and ability to tolerate medical procedures and other related therapies
  • Reduces pain, depression, stress, and apprehension
  • Reduces muscle tension/soreness and helps restore muscle tone caused by prolonged bed rest, stress, and anxiety
