Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is an effective treatment method and a holistic healing technique involving manual manipulation of the soft body tissues, such as connective tissue, ligaments, muscles, and tendons, by a trained specialist.

Holistic healing treatments like massage therapy revolve around viewing your body as one whole interconnected system. 

Massage also involves staying mindful that conditions, illnesses, injuries, or degeneration that affect certain joints can also radiate to other parts of your body.

Why would I choose massage therapy?

Many people choose massage therapy for relief of anxiety and pain, relaxation, to improve wellness, and for injury rehabilitation.

Massage therapy can help treat various symptoms from headaches to muscle pain, as well as regulating blood pressure and boosting your mood and cognitive functioning. 

You might choose massage therapy to help with back pain, postoperative care, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, pinched nerves, and more.

Massage therapy makes a wonderful complement to chiropractic care to help release stress and muscle tension. The skilled massage therapists at AIM often suggest having a massage prior to a chiropractic adjustment to relax muscles.

What are the different types of massage therapy?

There are numerous types of massages, often referred to as modalities and commonly split into two categories for simplicity: rehabilitation and relaxation.

Some of the different types of massage therapy include:

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Prenatal massage
  • Sports massage
  • Hot stone massage
  • Swedish massage

Some massages involve certain tools, such as hot stones or specific aromatherapy scents, to offer additional relief and benefits.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

Massage therapy provides myriad benefits. In addition to offering symptom relief, it can:

  • Provide a deep release of tension in your soft tissues
  • Stimulate blood flow
  • Reduce pain
  • Disperse inflammation
  • Decrease swelling after an injury

Massage also can prompt a breakdown of scarred tissue and a regeneration of scarred and injured tissue.

How does massage therapy help with rehabilitation?

Rehabilitative massage therapy is specially designed to help you recover from an injury, trauma, or illness as smoothly and quickly as possible.

If you’re suffering from chronic pain or recovering from a past injury, rehabilitative massage therapy uses specific tools and techniques to manipulate your soft tissue in various ways and provide maximum benefit for your body’s healing process.

Some of these techniques include stretching, localized pressure, and promoting blood flow
