Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a technique your provider uses to place pressure on and rub various muscles and joints within your body. Swedish massage is a standard type of massage that utilizes Western physiology and anatomy. It involves long kneading strokes, vibration and tapping, or deep circular movements.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a holistic remedy that treats numerous injuries and pain and improves your overall health. Specific benefits include:

  • Stress, tension, and anxiety relief
  • Relaxation
  • Increases in energy
  • Enhanced healing of injuries
  • Chronic pain relief
  • Rejuvenation
  • A better mood
  • Increases in sleep quality
  • A healthy pregnancy

During your massage, you’ll lie down on a comfortable massage table. Your therapist begins with broad general strokes and transitions to specific strokes to address problem areas.

What are the different types of massage?

After a thorough consultation at Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center, your provider lets you know which type of massage best matches your needs and preferences. Examples include:

Hot-stone massage

During a heated-stone massage, your therapist places warm stones on strategic areas of your body and uses the stones to massage you for enhanced comfort and healing. The heat relaxes and loosens tight muscles.

Deep-tissue massage

Deep-tissue massage is focused, therapeutic massage that targets muscle knots and other problem areas deep within muscle and connective tissue layers. Your provider uses slow strokes in areas requiring attention to ease pain, promote healing, and increase mobility.

Prenatal massage

Therapists at Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center use prenatal massage to promote relaxation, reduce back pain, and improve overall health in expectant mothers. Your provider has special training in massage therapy during pregnancy, and knows how to safely position and support your body for enhanced comfort during treatment.

Myofascial-release

During myofascial release, your therapist treats pain that arises in myofascial tissue, or tough membranes that connect and support muscles. Myofascial release is useful if you’ve lost function or flexibility after an injury or experience chronic back, hip, or shoulder pain where soft tissue resides. It also eases pain caused by temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and migraine headaches.

Massage after liposuction

After liposuction that permanently removes fat cells, post lipo massage can enhance your results, ease discomfort, and speed up healing.

Which type of massage is right for me?

The type of massage that best matches your needs depends on your preference, the condition of your health, and the area of injury or chronic pain. Call Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center to learn more or schedule an appointment online today.
