What is Therapeutic Massage Therapy?

Physical Therapist Cameron County TX Self Pay Services

Massage Therapy is used to treat muscle pain. It can be an alternative medicine to treat stiffness, muscle pain, or even an injury. A therapeutic massage can also be a complementary treatment within a treatment plan. Massages may also be able to alleviate fear and anxiety since massage therapy is considered a relaxation technique and is known to help reduce tension in the body.

Types of Therapeutic Massage

A fan favorite is the Swedish massage. The Swedish massage involves a total body massage. It is used to help relax the body and mind, while circulating blood flow throughout the body to help you get a sense of pain and tension relief. 

A Deep tissue massage is a bit more intense and more pressure is used to work through the muscles and attack muscle knots that are known to cause physical discomforts and headaches. 

Sport massages are used by athletes to recover from a sport-related issue, or to assist in training to help prevent injuries. 

Shiatsu is a massage that is often referred  to as acupressure. It is similar to acupuncture only in the fact that fingers, rather than needles, are used to add pressure to pressure points to help release tensions and energy buildup in the muscles.

What Therapeutic Massage can help with

 A therapeutic massage is used to help alleviate a number of conditions including, but not limited to: Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Headaches, Fibromyalgia, and Digestive disorders.  Therapeutic massages can help reduce muscle tension which is why it may be used to target conditions that are associated with anxiety and stress. 

Benefits of Therapeutic Massage
