Tower Physiotherapy: Types of Massage
With so many types of massage, it’s easy to get confused. This is why we’ve provided a brief explanation below of the types of massage offered at Tower Physiotherapy.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage involves the application of deep pressure strokes to reach the deep muscle and fascia tissue.
Graston massage involves gentle scraping of the skin, with the use of a special instrument.
Sports massage is a type of massage that focuses on injury rehabilitation and prevention. It’s ideal for athletic individuals who want to improve their performance or recover better.
Trigger Point Therapy
Also called myofascial release, trigger point therapy involves applying pressure to a specific point on the body. The goal is to relieve tension, dysfunction and pain.
Relaxation massage involves gentle and smooth strokes, with the sole goal of helping you relax. It also helps to release muscular tension and improve circulation.
This type of massage focuses on the needs and changes that women undergo during pregnancy. A prenatal massage can help a soon-to-be mother improve joint and muscle function, decrease pain, improve circulation and increase energy.
This massage therapy practice uses suction and negative pressure to pull the skin and tissues in a specific area in a round plastic or glass cup. This method promotes healing and may be particularly beneficial for active individuals or athletes.
