Experience the wellness benefits of massage therapy
Have you been experiencing mysterious tensions, muscular pain, or undue stress in your life?
Massage therapy's many benefits include its impacts on your daily life and overall mood, not to mention improving your perceived pain and posture.
Our expert massage therapists offer personalized treatments to help you overcome physical and mental barriers, so what does it involve?
What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy is always given by a licensed massage therapist, who will have a solid understanding of your physical and mental anatomy. They will use their knowledge and your descriptions of your ailment to manipulate the body’s soft tissues and muscles, relieving pain and even boosting the immune system.
An effective massage will slow down the nervous system, easing tension and stress and relieving pain from injuries or muscle overuse.
What are the benefits of massage therapy?
Receiving regular massages can help you achieve more than a state of relaxation. And from stress relief to improved sleep, the health benefits of massage can go far beyond the intended results.
Whether you’re seeking to reduce muscular tension, improve flexibility or mental health, regular massages can upgrade your daily life, improving your posture, immune system, and overall mood.
Types of massages
There are many types of massage, each carrying different benefits and purposes.
- Swedish massages
Relieving tension and increasing flexibility, a Swedish massage combines gentle kneading with rhythmic tapping and movement of joints.
- Deep tissue massages
A deep tissue massage targets pain far below the surface through slow strokes and applied pressure to reduce chronic tension.
- Thai massages
A traditional Thai massage incorporates Ayurvedic principles and yoga postures by blending stretching, compression, and acupressure.
- Sports massages
Whether coping with a sustained injury or headed for the top, a sports massage can put you back at the top by targeting affected areas.
How often should I get a massage?
How often you should receive a message depends on your lifestyle, pain points, and the area you want to target. For example, if you spend your days working at a computer in an office, you will have different (but no less important) needs than someone who completes eight hours of physical labor a day.
A sportsperson trying to reach peak athletic performance may also opt for a more regular massage, especially if trying to overcome an injury. This might involve a deep tissue massage once a week or even once a day. Massage therapy has many health benefits, from relaxation to stress relief, pain relief to boosting immune systems. The type of massage you need will depend on your current health and physical goals, and our experts would be more than happy to help you.
