There are many types of massage therapy. At WMH Rehab Center, our specialty is concentrated therapeutic deep tissue massage. This is the most effective type of massage in dealing with acute and chronic muscular pain. Muscles go into spasms for a variety of reasons such as overuse, poor posture, physical job stress, injuries, lack of exercise, lifestyle, or poor lifting procedures. Even emotional stress can trigger an inflamed and painful muscle layer. Deep tissue massage produces this therapeutic effect by releasing adhesions within the muscle and fascia. This allows the body to reset the muscular system.
There are a multitude of beneficial effects from massage therapy besides pain relief. These include:
- improved circulation
- posture improvement
- stress reduction
Massage therapist work under licensed physical and occupational therapist to help relieve pain and discomfort. They provide care to address:
- Neck, back and hip pain
- Deep seeded stress
- Sustained muscle tension
