Massage therapy is a manual treatment addressing muscular disorders and discomfort. Massage therapy includes several different techniques. Using their fingers, hands, arms, and sometimes the balls of their feet, massage therapists will press, rub, and manipulate the muscles and soft tissues of the body to help them relax and reduce pain. Massage provides an array of health-related benefits including chronic and acute pain relief, rehabilitating sports injuries, reducing stress, increasing relaxation, soothing anxiety, and depression, and improving general wellness.
While there are many types of massage, various methods used tend to fall under two main categories - gentle and very active/intense. Some types of massage we use at Davis Integrated Medicine include:
Massage therapy relaxes the muscle and connective tissue, leading to reduced nerve compression, improved joint space, and increased the range of motion. This can help to reduce pain and improve function. Massage therapy is also known to improve circulation which increases the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the muscle and assists to remove waste products or toxins. Massage therapy has been used to supplement treatment for conditions such as:
