What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy is more than just having your muscle tissues rubbed down. For thousands of years Massage Therapy has been used to manipulate the body’s muscles and soft tissue. It can reduce tension, minimize pain from muscular injuries, boost energy, and more. There are multiple styles of massage as well. All with their own unique benefits.
Some people prefer Swedish Massage, during which the massage therapist uses soft, kneading techniques to work the topmost layers of the muscles during a relaxing procedure.
Deep tissue massage
Others prefer deep tissue massage, which is often less comfortable, but works much deeper in the muscles to work out tension or muscular issues like sprains.
City Health Services also offers sports massage. During sports massage, the massage therapist works out tightness related to your specific sport, helps you prepare for an upcoming event, and speeds recovery.
Your Massage Therapist can work with you to tailor each massage to your wants and needs. They can vary the pressure levels and focus on certain areas where you may be experiencing pain, stiffness, or other discomforts.
