Manipulation of the soft tissues for healing purposes has ancient origins, and it's just as effective today as it was for the earliest healing practitioners. Some of the general benefits of massage therapy include:
Different types of massage therapy are better at providing specific benefits. For instance, Swedish massage, the most well-known type of massage, concentrates on stimulating the tissues and blood vessels near the skin's surface. This is a soothing way to ease pain, promote injury healing and relieve muscular stress. Deep tissue massage lives us to its name by employing more pressure to work out deep-held muscle knots that can contribute to fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions. Trigger point therapy applies tension and release to relieve specific areas of tightness known as trigger points, which refer pain to other areas of the body.
Sometimes massage therapy techniques are aimed at specific life situations. Prenatal massage is a good example. A prenatal massage program makes use of a special table to provide comfort to pregnant bodies, with gentle massage techniques relieving back pain, headaches and swelling of the extremities. Spots massage is highly useful for athletes who need to loosen specific muscle groups before a big event or rehabilitate a specific sports injury.
Many of the health and wellness issues treated by our Palm Coast, Florida team can benefit tremendously from massage therapy. The same acute injuries that cause vertebral misalignment or slipped discs can also cause painful soft tissue strains, making massage a welcome addition to your treatment regimen. Chronic pain conditions often include muscle tension and spasms, so we may prescribe massage alongside chiropractic care, acupuncture and other natural techniques to help you manage your pain without drugs. (Massage therapy can even make chiropractic adjustments easier and more productive.) If preventative wellness is your primary goal, we can use massage therapy to help you sleep better, enjoy better disease resistance and keep daily stresses at bay.
