Massage Therapy Services
Through the various techniques available, massage therapy can provide a number of benefits, including reducing stress, tension, pain and muscle soreness, healing sports-related or other injuries and encouraging general wellness.
There are a variety of massage therapies that utilize a multitude of different techniques. Sports targeted massages are similar to Swedish massages insofar as they use long strokes and kneading, circular movements while also being targeted to the needs of athletes. Targeted massages, such as deep tissue or trigger point massages can also be methods used to ease pain or symptoms elsewhere in the body.
While massage therapy can have positive results for anyone, those with conditions such as cancer, heart disease, chronic stomach concerns and fibromyalgia have seen notable benefits. It is also important for patients to discuss previous medical history and target concerns with their therapists prior to the first session.
Some of the benefits of massage therapy include:
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Improves sleep
- Lessens pain and muscle tension
- Improves immune function
- Relieves constipation
- Lessens fibromyalgia symptoms
