Which Massage Technique is Right for You?
Pain: unfortunately, it comes in so many different forms. Even if you aren’t experiencing intense pain, discomfort, anxiety, and tension are all factors that can lower your quality of life. Here we will go over a few different massage techniques so that you can figure out which is the best fit to help manage your discomfort.
Swedish Relaxation Massage
If you’re feeling overly stressed, this technique will help you in a few ways. For one, it has been proven to lower cortisol levels in the body, which is a known stress hormone. Also, this therapy increases blood flow and circulation to your limbs and your heart, increasing flexibility and your ability to fight colds and the flu!
Trigger Point Therapy
Do you have a bunch of “knots” in your neck, shoulders, or back? Trigger point therapy can definitely help with that. These painful, tight areas are very frequently caused from hunching (possibly at a desk) and stress. This therapy gets deep inside those areas and loosens the area, relieving pain and stress.
All types of pain and motion pain can be relieved with the help of myofascial release. As a form of soft tissue therapy, it helps with acute or chronic pain, headaches, joint restrictions from illness or injury, and much more.
If any of these techniques sound like the right fit for you, contact me and schedule your massage today. Even if you aren’t experiencing any pain or discomfort presently, it is always a good idea to rejuvenate by relaxing your muscles and deep tissue through massage. Your body will thank you for it!
