Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Using varying degrees of pressure and movement, certified and trained massage therapists manipulate the soft tissues of your body — muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue — for a variety of reasons:

  • To reduce pain
  • To promote healing
  • To ease stress
  • To boost overall health and wellness

Massage therapy is often offered as a complementary treatment in conjunction with your chiropractic or other comprehensive medical care.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

Once you’ve experienced a variety of massage therapies and techniques at Plaza Chiropractic and Massage Therapy, you’ll notice:

  • Quicker recovery from muscle soreness due to improved blood circulation
  • Improved range of motion because because of relaxed muscles
  • Better sleep
  • An overall good feeling because of increased endorphin levels in your brain.

What types of massage therapy are offered?

To meet your specific needs, Plaza Chiropractic and Massage Therapy offers several types of massage therapy:

  • Sports medicine
  • Hot stone
  • Swedish
  • Shiatsu
  • Hot stone

The three trained and certified massage therapists on staff provide a healing touch that communicates a sense of caring.

Ann specializes in shiatsu and prenatal massage. When necessary, she’ll walk on your back and can give an extremely deep tissue massage.

Maria has an excellent intuitive touch, displaying impeccable skill with strong hands and a masterful intention. She can loosen up your muscle knots quickly, while at the same time relieving your pain and promoting relaxation.

Megan, a former high school and college competitive swimmer, provides a sports focus. She studied in Hawaii and can deliver the Lomi Lomi massage, which integrates deep pressure and stretching.

How do I know which massage is right for me?

The staff at Plaza Chiropractic and Massage Therapy can help you figure out which type of massage is best for your needs.

The Swedish massage is gentle and typically focuses on relieving muscle tension and improving blood flow. Your tension will melt away as the therapist uses long gliding strokes, some kneading, and some tapping techniques on the top layers of your muscles or joints. Focusing on your joints improves your range of motion.

For prolonged muscle tension, the staff may recommend you go for the deep tissue massage. Your therapist will use slow gliding strokes and intense pressure to reach deeper layers of muscle tissue and focus on the myofascial trigger points, more commonly known as “knots.” You’ll feel pain when the therapist presses the knots, but you can trust that her certified technique is releasing the tension in your overworked muscles.

If you communicate often with your therapist during the massage, she can adjust her approach to ensure you get the best experience and results.
