Massage Therapy Styles & Benefits
If you have been living with serious pain, our chiropractors may recommend massage therapy as a pain relief treatment. Massage therapy, or soft tissue work, is a great form of wellness care for several types of injuries. If you are considering massage therapy to treat your acute or chronic pain, contact our chiropractors at Spinal Health and Rehab Integrative Medicine to schedule an appointment. We provide treatment for residents in and around Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, Arcadia, North Port, Cape Coral, and North Fort Myers. Let’s take a look at some of the massage styles we offer.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage relieves severe muscle tension. Chiropractors use this style to treat musculoskeletal disorders, postural issues, tension, and chronic muscle pain. We will use our hands, elbows, and knuckles to work into the inflamed joints and muscle fascia.
Hot Stone Massage
Soft tissue work often involves heat. The heat helps penetrate the muscles with deeper pressure. The stones can also be used to penetrate the muscles in the neck, shoulders, and back. The heat reduces tension and improves relaxation so that the soft tissue work is effective.
Sports massage is great for injuries and improves flexibility so you can have a better range of motion. Therapy also helps with pain related to athletic performance and can even help you prevent injuries in the future.
Chiropractors perform myofascial massage to manipulate the tissues that hold the bones, muscles, and organs together. The goal is to look for areas holding significant pressure so that your body will be less stiff. Myofascial massage targets trigger points and improves your body's flexibility.
Shiatsu is a therapeutic technique that puts full-body wellness care at the forefront of the treatment program. Shiatsu is a massage and stretching technique that helps with tightness and tension in the body. The goal of this therapy is to improve mindfulness. This style of massage includes active stretching, which improves flexibility as well.
Swedish massage therapy is one of the most popular techniques used for pain relief and relaxation. Chiropractic care often utilizes Swedish massage as a relaxation technique. If you are looking for the opportunity to relax for an hour, this is an excellent massage to consider.
