Author: Atlas Total Health
When you’re thinking about using our massage therapy services, you may have a few questions about what type of massage you can get. You may wonder “What massage types can I expect during my visit to Atlas Total Health Chiropractic?” Our 3 massage therapists exclusively offer four different types of massage, based on client needs. Read below about the types of massage we offer and see which one may suit you.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is just what it sounds like. Much slower than a typical Swedish massage, deep tissue massage aims to rejuvenate connective tissues and muscles. Deep tissue massage techniques incorporate firmer pressure in order to reach these inner layers of muscle. It can be used to break down muscle knots and scar tissue. This is recommended for people with chronic pain, stiffness, and conditions like fibromyalgia or torn muscles.
The most popular type of massage, Swedish massage uses light to medium pressure all over the parts of the body that are in distress or discomfort. The purpose of Swedish massage is to help your body relax and unwind after periods of tension. It vastly improves whole-body circulation and helps your muscles detoxify. This massage style incorporates circular motions and kneading.
Yes, you can get a massage if you are pregnant! Our massage therapists are trained to handle the needs of our glowing, pregnant clients. During your pregnancy, issues with stiff muscles, pain, or limited mobility can arise – and massage can help alleviate them. Accommodations will be made for prenatal massage sessions, such as supportive cushions, tables, and wedges placed under your hips.
The purpose of sports massage is often to prepare for upcoming sports events, treat any injuries from sports games, and prevent injuries or discomfort by improving the range of mobility. There can be a focus on areas that feel overused, so you feel refreshed and ready for your game. After receiving a sports massage, you may notice a decrease in muscle soreness when your next game rolls around.
At our St. Elmo and Highway 58 locations, our massage therapists can also incorporate cupping, which involves putting cups on affected areas of pain or discomfort to create a suction effect. This can help treat pain and stimulate healing blood flow. Give us a call today at (866) 668-0108 and see what massage therapy can do for you!
