Our exceptionally skilled trauma-trained massage therapists use the most effective massage techniques to alleviate discomfort and boost overall health and wellness.
What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy is a holistic treatment wherein hands-on massage techniques alleviate the symptoms of chronic pain and injuries. The massage therapist manipulates the soft tissues of your body to improve blood circulation to the injured area, activating your body’s natural healing response.
Deep tissue and trigger-point massage are particularly useful in relieving the tightened knots of muscles caused by repetitive use, providing instant and lasting relief. Some massage techniques also break the scar tissues to reduce stiffness. Each massage technique must be personalized to address your specific needs and concerns.
Besides the long-term benefits of massage therapy, it also provides instant relief and relaxation, alleviating the symptoms of chronic pain and injuries. That’s because massage releases endorphins, chemicals that communicate a feeling of wellness. Massage also reduces the stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol, and norepinephrine, reducing stress and anxiety.
What happens during massage therapy?
Your massage therapy at Glen Rock Spine & Rehab starts with a personal consultation with the massage therapist. Your therapist will review your health history, discuss your conditions and concerns, ask about your goals, and recommend the ideal therapy style for your specific needs. After the discussion, the therapist will step outside while you disrobe according to your comfort.
Once you lie down on the massage bed, the therapist will cover you with a sheet. They’ll use personalized massage techniques to knead your soft tissues, using various types of strokes to stimulate wellness. Your comfort is of the utmost importance, so feel free to communicate with the therapist — let them know if you want them to adjust to the pressure.
After the massage, the therapist will step outside the room while you get dressed. You’re advised to drink plenty of water after the massage. You can resume all your daily activities immediately after your session.
How can I modify the massage therapy?
- Aromatherapy: We use aromatherapy oils extracted from flowers, herbs, and fruits to soothe your mind and enhance the experience.
- Exfoliation: We use exfoliating scrubs to remove all the dirt and debris from your skin and unclog the pores, improving your skin texture and quality.
