Pain Tolerance and Massage Techniques

At our office, we always work within your pain tolerance. If you are sensitive to pain, that is okay! You can always tell us to go lighter in that area. We have different massage techniques that have helped reduce sensitivity in sensitive areas, which aids in the overall health of the muscle. Additionally, we have options beyond deep tissue massage.

Different Types of Massage Therapy Techniques

There are many types of massage therapy techniques. Some are more gentle while others are deeper and more focused. Here are some common massage therapy techniques:

-Swedish Massage: One of the most gentle types of massage, Swedish massage uses long strokes and a light touch to increase relaxation and reduce stress.

-Deep Tissue Massage: Deep tissue massage uses slow, forceful strokes to target deep layers of muscle and tissue. This type of massage is often used to treat chronic pain or injury rehabilitation.

-Sports Massage: Sports massage is similar to deep tissue massage but is specifically tailored to athletes. It can help prevent injuries, improve performance, and aid in recovery after an event.

-Hot Stone Massage: Hot stone massage uses heated stones to relax muscles and promote circulation. It is often used as a luxury treatment but can also be helpful for those with muscular pain or stiffness.

There are many benefits to massage therapy, including reducing pain, improving range of motion, and decreasing stress levels. There are different types of massage techniques that can be used depending on your specific needs. If you have any questions about which type of massage would be best for you, please don’t hesitate to ask us.
