Massage is a wonderful way to release muscle tension, reduce stress, and address nagging muscular injuries that interfere with your daily activities. There are two main types of massage which incorporate many different techniques.
Therapeutic Massage sometimes called Swedish Massage, is used mainly for relaxation and stress relief. Slow broad strokes are used to promote a general relaxation and therapeutic effect. This approach may also use more exotic applications, such as specially scented oils to increase or expand the therapeutic benefit.
Remedial Massage is generally used to treat injuries and correct muscular imbalances or facilitate other healing mechanisms in the body. This approach may include such techniques as Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Lymphatic Drainage and Myofascial Therapy.
Mechanical Massage is an extra option that may be delivered on it's own or in conjuction with either of the above methods. A special oscillating motion massager is used following the application of medicated oils, or simply through a towel over clothing so there is no need to disrobe. The machine's action deeply penetrates the body's tissues providing a very powerful relaxation response. Excellent for general relaxation and treatment of chronic injuries or joint stiffness and muscle tension. Also useful following exercise, for improving circulation and lymphatic flow, and for general well-being. This massager is preferred by our Chiropractor who utilizes it in his treatment sessions.
