The Best Massage on Victoria Drive
Brush aside any thoughts that massage is only a feel-good way to indulge or pamper yourself. To the contrary, massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being,
As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.
A Swedish Massage not only promotes relaxation of the body, but it also boosts the immune system by decreasing muscle toxins, increasing blood oxygen level, improving blood circulation, and lowering stress.
Myofascial Release Massage
Usually just another way of saying deep tissue massage.
Myofascial therapy can be a precursor and complement to other treatments. Patients who engage in myofascial therapy also may benefit from other forms of nonsurgical care that aim to control pain and keep muscles and joints warm and loose. These include:
· Using non-prescription pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen
· Applying heat to soothe constricted muscles or using ice to calm swollen areas
Performing self-stretching exercises to maintain flexibility and increase range of motion or aerobic exercise to increase blood flow to the affected areas.
