Therapeutic Massage

30, 60 or 90 minutes Session prices will vary; contact us today! Schedule with any massage therapist.
Therapeutic Massage is used to relieve severe tension in muscle and connective tissue. Slow strokes using deep pressure, chronic patterns of tension can be released.

Therapeutic Massage combines a variety of massage techniques, including but not limited to Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Acupressure, and Trigger Point Therapy.

A Therapeutic Massage may be more intense and less comfortable than a Relaxation Massage, though pressure is always adjusted to the client’s needs. It is especially important with Therapeutic Massage to communicate with your massage therapist if the pressure is painful.

Benefits of Therapeutic Massage:

  • Reduce pain associated with knots, adhesions, and trigger points
  • Improved posture
  • Increased range of motion
  • Decreased chronic pain

Does a Therapeutic Massage have to be painful to be beneficial?

The short answer is no. With many therapeutic modalities some discomfort is to be expected, but it should never be PAINFUL. Many people have the “No pain, no gain” mentality, which is flawed. If the pressure is too intense, you could be doing damage rather than benefit.
Please communicate that with your massage therapist so they can adjust the pressure accordingly.

What conditions are helped with Therapeutic Massage?

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Lower Back pain
  • Neck stiffness/pain
  • Shoulder pain and tension
  • Sciatic and hip pain
  • Repetative Stress Injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Plantar Fascitiis.

Will I get sore after my session?

Some soreness after a Therapeutic Massage can be expected. This soreness should be similar to an exercise soreness and should last only a day or two. If you feel bruised after, the session may have been too deep. Drinking water and resting after a session can help decrease the soreness you experience. An epsom salt bath can also help with post-massage soreness.
