Massage Therapy: Styles of Massage And Their Health Benefits

Massage Therapy: Styles of Massage And Their Health Benefits

Did you know that there are over 80 different types of massage? While some are used far more often than others, each massage style has its benefits. Choosing the right type for you depends on the conditions you are treating and the results you hope to achieve. At Lone Tree Chiropractic & Natural Health Center in Lone Tree CO, we use a range of massage therapy techniques to effectively address your health and wellness concerns.

Types of Massage Therapy 

Swedish massage: A gentle massage that utilizes long, flowing strokes, Swedish massage is sometimes referred to as a relaxation or wellness massage. It has many benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety, and is the most common type of spa massage, though it is also used in health care settings.

Deep tissue massage: A deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage and works to relieve tension deep within muscles and tissues. Slow strokes are used to work out soreness and imbalances. A deep tissue massage can be beneficial in relieving chronic muscle pain promoting the healing of injuries.

Sports massage: During a sports massage, a massage therapist uses deep pressure alternated with soothing strokes to focus on specific areas of concern. Sports massage helps to correct injuries from repetitive use and to relieve muscle tension.

Trigger point massage: Trigger points are areas of tightness in muscle tissue that can cause pain in other parts of the body. During a trigger point massage, the therapist will use broad, flowing strokes mixed with strong pressure to release trigger points. This type of massage therapy can help relieve chronic pain and improve your range of motion.

Reflexology: By applying firm pressure to specific points in the feet, hands, and ears, a massage therapist can help restore natural energy levels. Reflexology can also be very relaxing and help to combat insomnia.

Prenatal massage: Certain types of massage are not recommended during pregnancy, but prenatal massage is safe after the first trimester. This can be a very effective treatment for reducing body aches, easing tension, reducing swelling, and managing stress.

Chair massage: With light to medium pressure, a chair massage is beneficial in relieving stress and promoting relaxation. Chair massages can also be done very quickly and are a good introduction for someone who has never experienced a massage before.
