So, what is Massage Therapy?
Simply, massage therapy is intentional rubbing, pressing, or manipulation of muscles, skin, ligaments, and tendons with the intention of creating deep relaxation, healing, and recovery. Massage therapy comes in many forms and can be enjoyed with light strokes, or with application of deep pressure. It really depends on the condition of your muscles and personal preference on what you would like to experience.
Below are some of the different types of massage therapies.
A gentle massage in which deep circular motion, kneading, vibrations, strokes, and tapping movements, all used to relax muscles and energize the body.
A deeper, more powerful massage for both professional and rec athletes, to help prevent or treat injuries.
Stretching and kneading movements used during the massage to relax fascia and muscles. It helps reduce tightness and tension.
Deep, slow, and forceful strokes are applied to reach deep muscular layers and connective tissues. It is great for people with muscular damage from injuries.
Trigger point massage
Focused on tight muscular fibers, which become painful and tight due to overuse or injuries.
Utilization of gentle touch and strokes to detox, and release stress/tension in the muscles.
