What is Therapeutic Massage?
Therapeutic Massage Therapy is a style of massage therapy which focuses on getting results. Using this term indicates that the purpose of the massage is to achieve a structural change or therapeutic benefit in the body. It is style of treatment where massage therapists mobilize your soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fascia, etc) to restore normal functional use. You should expect to feel great relief after your therapeutic massage, instead of just relaxing for an hour.
How Therapeutic Massage Work?
Many of the structures in need of massage treatment are deeper in the body. The Therapeutic Massage uses heavier pressure to release tissue which is harder to access in the body. Expect your therapist to ask you questions about your pain pattern before the session, throughout the treatment and after your appointment. Where does it hurt? When did your tightness or pain start? What else have you tried? How’s my pressure?
