  • How A Therapeutic Massage Helps In Stress Healing

    Back
    Swedish therapeutic massages and full body massages help relief stress and pain. The therapeutic massages offered at Massage Green Spa help the clients in a few different ways. They are:

    1. Physical relaxation
    2. Improved circulation, which nourishes cells and promotes waste elimination
    3. Relief for tight muscles and other aches and pains
    4. Release of nerve compression which helps with carpel tunnel, sciatica and other nerve issues.
    5. Greater flexibility and range of motion

    While both Swedish therapeutic massages and full body massages offer stress and pain relief, there are differences in how massage therapists touch your body and where they begin for each one. A full body massage starts at the bottom with a therapist rubbing massage oil onto your feet and legs. Then, they work their way up to your shoulders, neck and head, which is why it is called a full body massage. Not one part of your body is ignored by the therapist.

    A Swedish therapeutic massage is the most common type of massage given at any spa. According to Web MD, there are four different types of strokes that can be used by a therapist during a Swedish therapeutic massage; they are effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement strokes. Effleurage strokes are smooth, gliding strokes that relax soft tissue. Petrissage strokes are done after effleurage strokes and include squeezing, rolling and kneading of muscle groups. Friction strokes are circular movements that cause layers of tissue to rub against each other, which helps increase blood flow and break down deep scar tissue. Tapotement strokes are short, alternating taps done with the edge of hands, cupped hands or fingers.

    Massage Green Spa offers an introductory massage price of $49.95 for the first hour you are there. If you are looking to get a massage from a trained professional, give us a call today. The therapeutic massages you get at Massage Green Spa will leave you feeling satisfied and relaxed.
