Massage therapy is the treatment and practice of manipulating the soft body tissues with physical, functional, and in some cases emotional purposes. Massages are used to relax and heal the muscles and are often supplemental to physical therapy treatment for people suffering from musculoskeletal problems.
Pain Relief Through Massage Therapy
The massage techniques used by physical therapists are a more scientific version of the traditional massage. With knowledge of anatomy and physiology, physical therapists understand how multiple massaging techniques can be used to decrease muscle pain or to improve overall mobility.
Massage Therapy Techniques
Deep Tissue Massages are used to release chronic patterns of muscular tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the hypercontracted areas.
Neuromuscular/Trigger Massages uses techniques to balance the body’s central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system.
Soft Tissue Massages are used for the more superficial layers of muscles and tissues, to stimulate circulation, relieve muscle tension, and promote general relaxation.
