Types of Massage

Therapeutic needs don’t only vary from person-to-person, but also from day-to-day. That’s why Medipractic massage therapists offer a variety of massage types. With variations in pressure, technique, and areas of focus, every visit is a chance to find your new favorite massage.

Trigger Point Therapy – A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. Trigger Point Therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.

Swedish Massage – The most popular therapeutic massage type, this light to medium pressure helps relieve stress, reduce pain, boost mood, and promote relaxation.

Deep Tissue Massage – Deep Tissue is similar to Swedish massage, but the technique focuses on the deepest layer of muscles to target knots and release chronic muscle tension.

Sports Massage – For athletes of every kind, each therapeutic massage is individualized to your sport of choice, with focus on a troubled area like a knee or shoulder.

Reflexology – Reflexology applies pressure to areas in the hands and feet called “reflex zones.”Focusing on these areas relieve stress, promote overall relaxation, and offers direct care to the ankle and foot.

Cranial Sacral Therapy – Gentle massage techniques are used on the head, spinal column, and sacrum. This method has been found of great use to those suffering headaches, TMJ, and general pain in the neck and back.

Geriatric Massage – Geriatric massage relieves anxiety and depression while helping maintain and improve overall health in elderly clients.
