What Does Massage Therapy Do?
Massage therapy is a deeply stress relieving, therapeutic and beneficial service that provides tangible physical benefits. The benefits vary from person to person, but in every case, the therapeutic benefits of a massage session are valuable, meaningful, relaxing, and in some cases very curative!
Not all massage is created equal, but expert therapeutic massage is good for every lifestyle and focuses on maintaining and improving the working order of each guest’s mind and body. Here are some of the big popular types of massages and some description of them, this way you can start to get an idea of what YOU think you need.
- Swedish Massage – This massage technique helps boost your blood flow and helps muscles to expel toxins like lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic waste. It is highly recommended for stress management. The massage therapist will do more gentle strokes to relax the body and provide a general sense of well-being and peace.
- Deep Tissue Massage – This massage therapy requires some heavy work on the deeper muscular levels of your body. Our massage therapists are knowledgeable and experienced so you can be sure that the therapy utilizes appropriate pressure and friction down the grain of your muscle tissue. While this modality can leave you sore for a day or two after the session, you will feel the REAL benefit of this massage therapy technique for weeks instead of just hours. It has an ability to provide relief so deep into your muscles and body, it can be a truly amazing experience.
- Shiatsu Massage – Shiatsu massage therapy, sometimes described as a finger pressure massage, does not involve the use of oil. This type of treatment calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system, which ultimately improves circulation, relieves tensed muscles, and alleviates stress.
