Massage Q & A

What massage services are available?

The caring massage therapists offer comprehensive massage services using several techniques based on your overall health and specific needs. At HealthWise Chiropractic, you can schedule a:

  • Swedish massage
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Myofascial massage

After a review of your goals, the therapists can recommend the right type of massage to address trigger points, promote blood circulation, and provide total relaxation.

How does a Swedish massage differ from a deep tissue massage?

A goal of a Swedish massage is to relax the entire body. The massage therapists use a variety of long, sweeping strokes to move blood back toward your heart. In addition to promoting good circulation, a Swedish massage can also increase your flexibility and rejuvenate tired muscles.

A deep tissue massage is similar to a Swedish massage, except the therapist uses deeper pressure to reach the deeper layers of tissue. A variety of massage techniques help relieve muscle tension while promoting relaxation and better blood circulation.

What is a myofascial massage?

A myofascial massage is a type of therapeutic massage that treats muscle tightness and pain due to injuries to the myofascial tissues, tough membranes that connect your muscles.

The massage techniques include stretching areas of tight muscle, or trigger points, to release stiff myofascial tissue. This type of therapy can improve your range of motion and alleviate pain.

Myofascial massage can also be useful for addressing pain from conditions like a TMJ disorder and carpal tunnel syndrome. If you suffer from frequent migraine pain, a myofascial massage can relax tense muscles that may contribute to your head pain.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

In addition to improving blood circulation and addressing muscle tightness that causes pain, regular massage therapy provides many overall health benefits.

If you have underlying health conditions, like arthritis or fibromyalgia, massage therapy can ease your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Massage therapy can also:

  • Relieve stress
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Strengthen cardiovascular health

Based on your health history, your massage therapist may recommend regular sessions to keep your body flexible and promote good health.
