Massage is the rubbing and kneading of muscles and joints of the body with the hands. We provide many services like: Deep Tissue Massage- Deep tissue massage therapy is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people’s blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. Swedish Massage- Swedish massage which Henri Ling invented in 1812 to create a relaxing form of massage that would increase circulation, ease tension and improve flexibility in patients. Swedish massage incorporates five individual techniques, long, smooth strokes; careful kneading of individual muscles; friction; hacking (tapping); and consistent vibration. Using these techniques together provides maximum benefits. Shiatsu Massage- Shiatsu is a Japanese word that means, “finger pressure.” As a healing therapy it is based upon acupuncture principals, focusing on clearing the meridian system of blockages to improve well-being. It also integrates human anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Like many types of holistic medicine, shiatsu massage can be used to treat specific conditions, but it also helps the body reach a state of overall well-being. Reflexology- Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologies believe that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person’s general health. Craniosacral Therapy- Craniosacral therapy stimulates healing by using gentle hand pressure to manipulate the skeleton and connective tissues, especially the skull and sacrum. It is based on the controversial theory that the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord, has subtle, rhythmic pulsations that are vital to health and can be detected and modified by a skilled practitioner. Holistic Massage- Holistic therapy treats the body as a “whole”, which means that not only will a massage treatment pamper your physical body but it will also establish internal and external problems and provide an effective method of rebalancing. Holistic massage is a therapeutic application of touch that is also a supportive, relaxing treatment that encourages the mind to slow down whilst energy is increased. This treatment also lifts the spirit on an emotional level. Hot Stone Massage- Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. Therapeutic Massage- Therapeutic massage is a massage, which is offered with the goal of obtaining a therapeutic benefit. It differs from relaxation massage, performed to help someone relax. While therapeutic massage is often relaxing, the end goal of the session or series of sessions is not relaxation. Sports Massage- Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from the beginner to the ultimate athlete. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Pregnancy Massage- This massage is for the pregnant woman and focuses on the achy points of her body. In this massage the woman is not placed on her stomach, nor is she place flat. This massage helps relax the woman and help circulation. If you are still unsure about what kind of massage is right for you, Smithfield Chiropractic in Logan, Utah can help you decide.
