Massage Therapy Q & A

What are the different types of massage therapy used for?

Massage therapy gently manipulates the soft tissues in your body to help you manage a health condition or to promote and enhance your overall health and wellness. Some of the most popular massage techniques include:

  • Swedish massage for muscle relaxation or to assist in recovery after a sports injury
  • Deep tissue massage to relieve repetitive muscle strain and target knots in the muscle
  • Shiatsu massage for sciatica pain, arthritis, insomnia, and digestive problems
  • Sports massage to help prevent injuries and improve flexibility
  • Hot stone massage to release areas of tension and promote relaxation
  • Reflexology for your feet to promote healing in other areas of your body
  • Aromatherapy massage usually combines Swedish massage and essential oils to provide a soothing, uplifting, or relaxing experience

Dr. Jordan may recommend a specific type of massage therapy to help you heal after an injury, or to alleviate discomfort from a chronic condition as part of your holistic treatment plan.

What are the health benefits of massage therapy?

Massage therapy can enhance nearly every system in your body, including relieving pain, lowering stress, and improving your emotional state. You may get relief from neck and back pain, ease tight muscles, or feel happier after your massage appointment. It’s the perfect complement to chiropractic adjustments, as well.

Other benefits of massage therapy include:

  • Reducing headache and migraine pain and frequency
  • Increasing range of motion and mobility
  • Reducing arthritis pain
  • Reducing fibromyalgia symptoms
  • Improving balance
  • Relieving chronic neck pain
  • Relieving chronic sciatica pain
  • Helping your digestive system
  • Improving cardiovascular health

Massage therapy can also help lower your blood pressure and heart rate so you feel more relaxed after a stressful day. Regular massage therapy appointments may help you get relief from anxiety and depression, too.  

Am I a good candidate for a sports massage?

If you’re an athlete, you may benefit from regular sports massages. Dr. Jordan specializes in helping athletes prevent injury, so she may recommend you add massage to your repertoire for staying in shape. Sports massage helps prevent injuries, improve flexibility, and enhance your performance on the playing field.

Sports massage is ideal for athletes of all ability levels and sports. Your massage therapist focuses on the muscle groups you use most during your particular sport to help increase blood flow to the muscles that get overworked.
