How Our Massage Therapy Programs Can Help You
4 Types of Massage Therapy for Pain Management and Stress Relief
Swedish massage: Are you feeling overwhelmed by stress or anxiety? Many of today’s chronic health problems, including heart disease, are triggered by stress. Stress can also cause headaches, backaches, and high blood pressure. Swedish massage helps lower blood pressure while enhancing the mind-body connection. The physical act of massaging muscle tissue increases the flow of fresh, oxygen-rich blood. This helps to lower cortisol levels while increasing endorphin levels. Massage also helps improve posture and alignment by releasing tension from sore muscles.
Myofascial release: Does a chronic health condition, like fibromyalgia, trigger daily pain? Myofascial release may be able to help. This style of massage uses long, deep strokes and sustained pressure to release tension from the body. The goal of myofascial release is to restore fluidity and flexibility to the body. This is especially effective for patients with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia. Myofascial release can help reshape “stuck” muscle tissue and restore proper function.
Craniosacral Therapy: Patients suffering from chronic headaches and recurring migraines can benefit from this type of therapy, a gentle method used to improve the natural movement of cerebrospinal fluid and free any possible restrictions.
