Massage therapy has now been considered a component of mainstream medical therapy instead of just being a complementary or alternative therapy. It has been shown by several studies that massage therapy resulted to significant improvements in patients suffering from various medical conditions. Its benefits extend beyond relieving stress and tension and providing relaxation.
Massage is actually a general term to describe the techniques applied by a therapist such as pressing, rubbing, and the manipulation of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin. This therapy utilizes the hands and fingers to bring out the desired results although in some cases the forearms, elbows, and feet may be used.
There are numerous types of massage therapies available right now and the choice of massage would largely depend on the condition and circumstances of the patient. Deep tissue massage may used for your sports injuries or trigger point massage to treat specific pains in the muscles. Our therapist will determine the best type of massage therapy after a thorough evaluation of your condition.
