Benefits Of Massage That May Change Your Perspective

Life can get pretty busy and stressful. Nobody needs to say that twice!  But massage doesn’t have to be a luxury service; it is increasingly used as a supplement to medical treatment programs.

Most people know massage is beneficial for conditions such as stress, anxiety, and headaches. Research from the Mayo Clinic, however, has shown massage is also an effective treatment for soft tissue strains, joint pain, sleep disorders, and immune response.

We offer an integrated approach for our patients at City Health Services, by providing a full suite of traditional and alternative health services such as allergy testing, physical therapy, medical weight loss, trigger point injections, as well as City Massage.

TYPES OF MASSAGE

When considering massage, there are several types of massage from which to choose. Below are different massage types to consider:

Swedish massage is the most familiar type of massage. It is based on human anatomy and physiology and uses different strokes to address the patient’s problem areas.  Aromatic essential oils and hot stones may also be incorporated into a Swedish Massage to further enhance relaxation.

Deep tissue massage targets issues within the deep muscle tissue, which is beneficial to those with chronic joint or muscle pain. Despite the name, deep tissue massage should not be a painful process.

Sports Massage is used to help athletes prepare for, or recover from, sports-related strain. In this case, therapists focus primarily on the muscle groups used to play a particular sport.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (or IASTM, also called “gua sha”) is a method which uses instrumentation to help release unhealthy elements, increase blood flow, and promote healing. For those who suffer from chronic headaches, craniosacral massage may be a good choice. It involves the use of light pressure on the soft tissues surrounding the head and spine, thereby manipulating the cerebrospinal fluid inside. These delicate adjustments can help balance your sleep cycle (circadian rhythm) and reduce headaches.

Post-auto accident massage can greatly reduce strain caused by the wreck, and boost any other prescribed therapies during recovery.
