Massage Therapy Q & A

Every Woman Wellness

massageWhat are the benefits of professional massage?

Massage performed by professional massage therapists offers many benefits, including:

  • relief from pain due to muscle tension and strain
  • reduction of stress and anxiety
  • promotion of circulation for deep tissue healing
  • improvement in flexibility and reduction of stiffness
  • the release of muscle “knots” or tender trigger points

Numerous massage techniques are available to address all sorts of issues, including deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, sports massage, hot stone massage, and even prenatal massage for expectant mothers.

What are the benefits of a prenatal massage?

Prenatal massage helps pregnant women cope with the aches and pains of pregnancy brought on by increasing weight and changes in the body's center of gravity which can place added strain on muscles and other soft tissues. Prenatal massage can also promote circulation for better overall health and wellness while also relieving tension and stress that may be associated with hormonal changes. Plus, prenatal massage can promote better sleep by helping the body and mind to relax.

What is a Swedish Massage?

Swedish massage is a massage technique that uses special motions and directed, gentle pressures to stimulate circulation, increase lymphatic drainage, and help patients feel relaxed and energized. Swedish massage techniques can also be used to reduce chronic stress and anxiety and to relieve sore, stiff muscles.

What is a deep tissue massage?

Deep tissue massage uses special techniques designed to reach the deeper layers of muscles where painful trigger points, or muscle “knots,” can form. Strokes use strong, consistent pressure to release stress and tension that binds muscles and other soft tissues to improve flexibility and promote a pain-free range of motion.

What are the benefits of aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy uses specific scents to trigger olfactory responses associated with relaxation and stress reduction. It can be used alone or in combination with massage to enhance the effects and benefits of a massage treatment. Like massage, aromatherapy can be customized to suit the needs of each patient.
