Types of Massage Therapy Available:
Deep Tissue Massage
is a focused, therapeutic massage that targets muscle adhesions (knots) and specific problems in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Using deliberate, gradual strokes or tension across the muscle, the therapist focuses on chronic tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or injuries.
It’s true that the pressure of deep tissue massage is usually more concentrated than that of a Swedish massage. It does not have to be painful to be effective. If you’re experiencing any great discomfort, let your massage therapist know immediately.
This type of massage is especially beneficial for people with chronic pain or lasting injuries that cause some limited mobility. It’s an effective way of treating repetitive stress injuries such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome and can be helpful in reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Cranial Sacral Therapy
is an alternative treatment typically used by chiropractors and massage therapists. It asserts to use a gentle touch to manipulate the joints in the cranium or skull, parts of the pelvis, and the spine to treat disease.
The therapist use techniques such as kneading and rubbing to promote relaxation and healing. Reflexology is based on the reflex areas of the hands and feet, whose energy is thought to be connected to organs and other parts of the body. By applying pressure to the reflex points, the reflexologist can create equilibrium in your nervous system and stimulate endorphins, which are the body’s natural pleasure response. This release of endorphins reduces stress and discomfort. This can be a deeply relaxing therapy, especially if you stand a lot or have tired, achy feet. During the session, you remove your shoes and socks but otherwise remain clothed.
Intra Oral Work for TMJ
Cupping is an ancient form of therapy where cups are placed on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. The benefits of cupping are a reduction in pain, inflammation, and increased blood flow. The air inside the cups will begin to cool, which creates suction and your skin will begin to redden as your blood vessels expand and promote healing.
Also known as prenatal massage; pregnancy massage is customized to an expectant mother’s needs but is most often used to encourage relaxation. Since many pregnant women have lower back pain and swollen ankles especially in the later months, prenatal massage is a fairly safe drug-free way to give pregnant women relief.
Massage therapists who have received specific training and are certified in prenatal massage recognize how to position and correctly support a woman’s body during the massage. They also avoid certain areas and techniques. Most will have a special table that allows the woman to rest comfortably and safely during the massage. Preferably you should search for a practitioner who is skilled and licensed in prenatal massage in Lynnwood WA.
Virtually one and the same as massage therapy. Swedish massage is based on the western conceptions of anatomy and physiology, contrasted to the energy-centric style more common in Asian forms of massage. Using lotion or oil, the massage therapist typically begins with broad general strokes and then transitions into specific strokes that address problem areas.
There are five basic strokes in Swedish massage therapy: effleurage (long smooth strokes), petrissage (kneading, rolling, and lifting), friction (wringing or small circular movements), tapotement (percussion), and vibration (rocking or shaking movements).
Swedish massage provides full-body muscle relaxation, and it can be especially helpful if you’re recovering from an injury.
Get started on the path to healing. According to the Mayo Clinic ” Massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being.”
