A relaxation massage is the most common type to receive for your first massage. Relaxation massage is beneficial for relieving every day stress, loosening any general tension in the muscles, and giving an overall feeling of well-being. Light to medium pressure is used, depending on the individual.
***Depending upon the condition that you have, a Relaxation Massage may not give you the long-term relief that you’re looking for. If the tension that’s causing the problem is deeper into your tissue or it requires therapeutic techniques and a more firm pressure to release that tension, you would most likely need a Deep Tissue or Trigger point therapy.
Deep tissue is a type of massage that is designed to alleviate pain and muscle tension, increase range of motion and help to restore normal movement. This type of massage is extremely beneficial because it focuses on reaching and realigning the deeper layers of the muscle, fascia (connective tissue surrounding the joints) and tendons. The pace of deep tissue massage is individually assessed and may range from specific trigger point work to a more energetic sports massage for event recovery.
These are two specific types of deep tissue if you need something more in depth…….
Trigger point therapy
Trigger points are tender spots found within a taut band of skeletal muscle, commonly referred to as a “muscle knot”. This point when pressed causes pain over the muscle affected or refers pain to be felt in another region of the body. One of the advantages of TP therapy, when compared to other massage therapies, is that it identifies and works on very specific points of the body.
For example, a trigger point found within a muscle of your back may be the cause of the pain, numbness, and tingling that is radiating down your shoulder into your arm. After locating the trigger points, different finger techniques are applied with varying pressure on and around the points, which help to break down the adhesions of the “knot”. More often than not, when the TP is released, the individual will feel immediate relief within the session or a few hours later. Trigger point therapy taps into the body’s web of muscles and tissues to unlock chronic and injury-related pains caused by tension and stress. Each muscle in the human body has trigger points that have the potential to become activated by muscle overuse, inflammation, trauma, electrolyte imbalances, and nerve pain.
Sports massage therapy
A sports massage therapy technique applies to the athlete, usually with a specific goal in mind. There are 3 key principals of a sports massage: timing, technique, and intent.
