Massage Therapy

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy refers to the manipulation of soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, to promote health and relaxation. Massage therapy at Elements Rejuvenating Aesthetics is performed by a licensed massage therapist (LMT) who has clinical training in the practice of therapeutic massage.

What are the different types of massage therapy?

There are dozens of different massage modalities, each designed for a specific therapeutic goal. The most popular types of massage therapy include:

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage, one of the oldest therapeutic massage styles, is intended to relax while increasing circulation and releasing muscle tension. Long, warming strokes followed by deeper kneading, circling, and tapping are the hallmarks of a Swedish massage; these strokes also provide the foundation of several modern massage modalities.

Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue massage offers all the relaxation of a Swedish massage, with an added focus on tense, knotted muscles. Your LMT uses fingers, elbows, or special tools to safely press deep into your muscles in order to break up adhesions and encourage your body to clear toxins and heal tissues.

Sports Massage

Sports massage uses Swedish, deep tissue, and physical therapy techniques to prevent and treat sports-related injuries. Sports massage can also help prepare the body for athletic events and promote post-event recovery.

Additional modalities that can be added to massage sessions include:

  • Lymphatic drainage: reduces swelling and supports immune system function with light strokes
  • Myofascial release: stretches the fascia that lies beneath your skin to promote postural realignment
  • Reflexology: addresses pressure points on your feet for total body relaxation
  • Aromatherapy: enhances stress relief with therapeutic-grade essential oils
  • Prenatal massage: promotes relaxation and eases the stress of moms-to-be; LMT’s who perform prenatal massage have special training to perform prenatal massage safely

Your LMT will discuss your goals with you before your treatment, and customize your massage experience to address your needs.

What are the benefits of massage?

Because massage decreases stress while stimulating the body’s natural healing process, its benefits go beyond the time you spend on the massage table.

Some of the conditions that can be improved by regular massage therapy include:

  • Back, neck, hip and shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Tendonitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Tension headaches
  • Chronic stress

Almost everyone can benefit from massage therapy because it increases circulation, reduces chronic pain and supports healthy immune function.
