What Does a Massage Do for Me?
The practice of massage dates back thousands of years to ancient cultures who discovered its numerous medical benefits. The manipulation of your muscles during a massage works to relieve tightness and discomfort while promoting circulation and healing. After massage, sore and overworked muscles recover faster and inflammation is reduced, resulting in better athletic performance, wider range of motion, and an overall healthier body. In addition, massage not only relaxes the body, but it also works on a mental and emotional level to lift stress.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage differs from a typical massage in that it targets the layers of muscle and tissue underneath what is typically targeted by relaxation massage therapists. Deep Tissue Massage uses stronger strokes and friction movements to access the muscle layers. As a result, some clients may feel sore for one or two days afterwards. Deep tissue massage helps alleviate back pain and physical fatigue, breaks up scar tissue, improves circulation, and exercises weak or tight muscles.

Therapeutic Massage is mainly used to help those recovering from an injury or surgery. It focuses on techniques that will help reduce the pain associated with these traumatic events by increasing range of motion and joint flexibility. This promotes tissue regeneration, reduces scar tissue, and improves circulation—promoting a quicker recovery. Put simply, Therapeutic Massage keeps you healthy.
