What Exactly is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a very ancient form of treatment and has been around for thousands of years. Ancient China, Japan, Egypt, and India have been known to use massage therapy on patients for various reasons. Massage therapy entails many different techniques used by massage therapists to bring pain and other relief to the patient. Massage therapy involves manual pressure applied to muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissue body parts. Pressure is applied by the hands and arms of the massage therapist.
The different types of massage therapy include sports massage, Swedish massage, and myofascial trigger point therapy. Sports massage combines deep tissue massage with Swedish massage. Swedish massage involves long strokes, circular movements, and kneading.
There are variations in the pressure applied to the patient, based on the kind of massage recommended. Some patients also prefer soft or hard pressure. If you have never had a massage before, start with soft pressure and go from there. You can also ask the massage therapist how much pressure to apply during treatment. Make sure to ask plenty of questions to our staff about what to expect.
How Effective is Massage Therapy and What Does it Treat?
Massage therapy is very effective and can treat many different conditions and illnesses. These include fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, pain, cancer, headaches, HIV/AIDS, infant care, and other sicknesses.
Once a treatment plan is in place, our chiropractor will let you know how many sessions are recommended. Based on your diagnosis, massage therapy may also be combined with chiropractic therapy and other types of treatment.
