Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy uses a variety of techniques to manually manipulate the soft tissues of your body. There are several types of massage therapy available, each focusing on specific manipulation techniques that support good health.

Some of the most common massage types used to treat pain and improve blood circulation include:

Swedish massage

A Swedish massage uses gentle kneading techniques, circular motions, and long, flowing strokes to release knotted muscles and promote total body relaxation.

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massages use more pressure than a Swedish massage to address discomfort and pain from chronically tight muscles, muscle injuries, and anxiety. The techniques reach the deeper layers of your soft tissues to enhance blood circulation and promote healing from the inside out.

Trigger point massage

A trigger point massage focuses on areas of over-tight, painful muscles known as trigger points. A variety of massage techniques are used to release muscle knots and increase flexibility and range of motion.

Your Back to Health, LLC massage therapist can recommend the right type of massage based on your needs and the severity of your pain.
