What Are the Benefits of Massage Therapy? 

Massage increases circulation, helping to: 

  • Relax muscle spasms, relieve tension, and improve tone  
  • Return blood flow to the heart  
  • Prevent or delay muscle atrophy resulting from forced inactivity  
  • Stimulate lymphatic circulation, eliminating wastes and debris  
  • Potentially move material in the intestines, reducing constipation 

Massage also offers other physical benefits, including working to stretch fascia to increase range of motion. It prevents the formation of adhesions and decreases discomfort, inflammation, swelling in the joints, and edema. For those with injuries, massage is a valuable tool for facilitating movement during rehabilitation. 

We receive emotional and mental benefits from massage, too, including:  

  • Reduced sense of isolation, especially for the sick and elderly  
  • Increased overall sense of well-being  
  • Release of repressed emotional energy  

Additionally, massage engages the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing insomnia and contributing to overall relaxation. No matter which of our massage services you pursue, you can count on feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from head to toe.

Deep Tissue Massage 

Deep tissue massage releases areas chronically stressed by misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.

Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, it’s important to communicate with your therapist about your comfort levels during your session. Many people feel soreness after this type of work. Drinking plenty of water will flush out the toxins your deep tissues released during the treatment. 

Benefits

  • Decreased pain 
  • Increased energy and range of motion 
  • Release of tense fascia, chronic holding patterns, and “knots”  
  • Supply of blood, water, and nutrition throughout the body 

Pregnancy Massage 

Pregnancy brings about exciting physical and emotional changes, but it can also put stress on the mind and body. Pregnancy massage melts away aches and pains using techniques specifically developed for expectant mothers.

Benefits 

  • Emotional support 
  • Relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance 
  • Improved breathing and relaxation 
  • Reduced swelling and blood pressure 
  • Increased blood and lymph circulation 

Shiatsu Massage

Shiatsu is a healing treatment for the mind, body, and spirit whose name comes from two Japanese words: “shi” (finger) and “atsu” (pressure). This technique combines gentle stretching with the direct stimulation of pressure points along energy pathways. Together, these approaches encourage the flow of chi (energy) throughout the body. 

Benefits

  • General relaxation and decrease in stress  
  • Balanced energy and increased sense of well-being  
  • Increased range of motion in joints and decreased joint pain  
  • Improved circulation  
  • Help with backache and neck and shoulder stiffness  
  • May alleviate sinus congestion and headache  
  • Help in disease prevention

Lymphatic Massage 

A favorite post-op treatment of our plastic surgery patients, lymphatic massage encourages the flow of lymph fluids throughout your body. This decreases swelling and speeds up your natural healing process.

Scalp Massage

Scalp massage relaxes the mind and encourages circulation, which studies show may stimulate hair growth and thickness. An aromatherapy blend is applied to the scalp to relieve stress and reduce tension in the head and scalp.

Upper Extremities Massage

This customized massage mainly targets the upper back and shoulder region along with the head and neck. It uses different techniques to help relieve muscle tension, pain, and tightness.

Lower Extremities Massage 

This customized massage targets the glutes, thighs, hamstrings, and feet. It involves a range of different techniques that help reduce muscle tightness, relieve pain, and increase blood circulation.
