Poor posture, sedentary lifestyles, injuries, and stress can all have an effect on how your body feels. Massage therapy is a great way to help ease tension and muscle soreness. Here at The Medical Skin Clinic, we offer several techniques to help you on your wellness journey.
Swedish massage is the classic technique that most people are familiar with. The main purpose of this method is to improve blood circulation and release toxins from the muscles. The ligaments and tendons are also stretched, keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish massage is often suggested as part of a regular program for stress management.
Deep tissue massage combines many of the classic massage strokes with deeper pressure for a more therapeutic form of bodywork. Your therapist will use a combination of slow strokes, pressure, and trigger point work to release chronic muscle tension.
Soma Cupping uses suction to promote circulation and lengthen targeted bands of connective tissues to facilitate deeper, more focused muscle work. Soma Cupping can be added to your Swedish or deep tissue massage for deeper stretching of the ligaments and to encourage lymphatic drainage.
Clinical massage is used to address certain injuries and provide soft tissue rehabilitation. Your massage therapist will utilize principles of anatomy and physiology, functional kinesiology, and clinical conditions to identify the underlying causes of pain. Clinical massage helps improve functional movement and range of motion. Soma Cupping and trigger point therapy are included in the treatment to enhance tissue healing and encourage proper scar tissue development.
Thai massage uses assisted stretching and soothing, rhythmic compression to increase flexibility and relieve tension. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage because the therapist uses their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches.
Thai massage is performed on a cushioned mat on the floor while you remain comfortably dressed.
