What Is a Therapeutic Massage?
Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissue and joints of the body. Therapeutic massage has many physiological effects, primarily due to the therapist’s hands moving over the body. The different movements can physically stretch muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. It encourages circulation through the tissue, inhibits muscular spasms and can either sedate or stimulate the nervous system, depending on the type of massage performed.
The goal of massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and to increase health and well-being. Massage improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues. This can assist in the elimination of waste products, speeding up healing after injury, and enhancing recovery from disease.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Our massage therapy has numerous physical health benefits. It can increase circulation and reduce inflammation, leading to improved mood, reduced pain, and a boost to your immune system. It can loosen tight muscles and improve range of motion, improving posture and helping with chronic conditions such as arthritis. Massage therapy also reduces stress hormones and positively impacts blood pressure levels. Finally, massage therapy can help with sports injuries by reducing swelling and speeding up recovery time. All in all, massage therapy offers a wide range of benefits for physical health and overall well-being.

Massage Therapy for Pregnant Women
Regular massage therapy can ease the pain of delivery. Several studies showed that regular massage therapy can reduce swelling and discomfort associated with pregnancy. It also strengthens the fascia or the strong sheath that surrounds the muscles. With this in mind, pregnant women can become flexible and avoid stiffness.
Massage therapy does not alleviate all discomfort associated with pregnancy, however. But it does offer an easier, more comfortable way to get through the pain. Our trained massage therapists and physical therapists can provide a massage that is comfortable and safe.
A deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that relieves tension down to a deeper layer of tissue. This is a highly effective way to release chronic stress as a result of misalignment, past injuries, and repetitive motions. Our trained therapists know that the massage session can get uncomfortable. Thus, open communication is crucial throughout the session with your massage therapist. Also, to assist in flushing toxins from the body, you need to take plenty of fluids or water to further complement the benefits of deep tissue massage.
