What are the different types of massage therapy?
The highly trained, licensed massage therapists at 43rd St. Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation offer a variety of massage techniques, including:
This is a traditional massage method that involves kneading, tapping, and gliding strokes. Swedish massage promotes overall health and well-being by stimulating nerves, muscles, glands, and blood flow in your entire body.
Sports massage is beneficial for athletes and highly active people. This approach corrects imbalances caused by sports injuries or stress from repetitive strenuous physical activity.
This specialized, hands-on therapy relaxes the connective tissue (fascia) around your muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Myofascial release facilitates proper mobility.
Lymphatic drainage massage
Lymphatic drainage massage uses different techniques to open your lymphatic vessels and release built-up fluid.
Warm stone massage
This technique uses warm, smooth stones to gently heat your muscles and improve relaxation and restoration.
This approach focuses on relaxation rather than therapeutic treatment. Relaxation massage still improves your health by reducing stress and relaxing tense muscles.
The goal of rehabilitation massage is to reduce pain due to an acute or chronic injury and increase range of motion. This massage may focus on only one part of the body.
What are the benefits of massage therapy?
Many people consider massage to be a luxury, but this healing technique offers many therapeutic benefits, including:
- Relaxing muscles and relieving referred trigger point pain
- Addressing postural misalignments
- Reducing stress and anxiety
- Speeding injury recovery
- Relieving tension
- Reducing swelling
- Improving sleep
- Increasing circulation
- Boosting the immune system
- Relieving headaches
- Improving overall well-being
Massage therapy is beneficial on its own, but it’s especially helpful when used along with techniques like chiropractic care.
What should I expect from massage therapy?
Your massage therapist at 43rd St. Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation discusses your overall health and areas of pain. Then, they develop a customized massage plan to help you achieve optimal health. This may include hands-on massage with oils or lotions to reduce friction or instrument-assisted vibration with a mechanical device.
