Massage Therapy Q & A
What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy uses soft tissue manipulation and other techniques to relieve tension and pain.
The massage therapists at Pain Relief Center LA offer several types of massage therapies to promote holistic wellness and health. Different therapies use a variety of muscle strokes and pressure levels to soothe sore muscles and reduce tension.
Massage therapy is an effective way to relax your total body and keep you physically active. You can also benefit from massage therapy as part of your treatment plan for chronic pain from injuries or underlying medical conditions.
What type of massage therapies are available?
The Pain Relief Center LA therapy team has experience in a variety of massage styles to meet your needs. Depending on your existing health and level of pain, you may benefit from:
A Swedish massage uses gentle pressure, kneading movements, and low, flowing strokes to release muscle knots and increase your blood circulation. This type of massage is good for those who want to relax.
Therapeutic massage uses techniques similar to Swedish massage, but the therapist applies more pressure to your muscles to release overly tight muscles (trigger points), relax the body, and reduce your pain.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage focuses on the muscles deep within your body. Using different amounts of pressure and slow stroking movements, your therapist reaches deep muscles and connective tissue to treat pain, boost your blood circulation, and improve your mobility.
Why should I consider massage therapy?
Massage therapy is more than a luxury service. Regular massages promote good health and wellness by increasing your blood circulation and keeping your muscles healthy.
You should consider massage therapy on a regular basis to relax your muscles and reduce your risk for trigger points and chronic pain relating to excess stress and physical exertion.
You can also schedule regular massages if you need relief from pain due to injuries or underlying diseases. Massage therapy is beneficial for those that experience frequent:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Arthritis pain
Dr. Marinaro may recommend massage therapy to support your chiropractic care plan to keep you flexible and pain-free.
