Massage Therapy Treatments
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy can release chronic muscle tension and pain. The focus is on working out knots or adhesions in the deepest layers of muscle, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones, nerves, and more). Deep tissue massage can improve your circulation, range of motion, and reduce inflammation in sore muscles. Athletes, in particular, appreciate deep tissue massage for its ability to deliver oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to muscle tissue, which can help heal sports injuries and enhance athletic performance.
Prenatal and Postpartum Massage
The prenatal and postpartum massage therapy program at Peak Medical Centers is specifically designed for the expectant mother. Prenatal massage therapy can help relieve muscle tension and stress associated with the extra body weight a woman carries during her pregnancy. Postpartum massage therapy can tone overstretched skin and help restore a mother’s body to its pre-pregnancy state.
Swedish massage is a gentle, full-body form of massage. It’s ideal for patients who may be sensitive to touch or are in significant pain. It is intended to improve circulation and tissue elasticity while relaxing the muscles. It can also improve your range of motion. Your therapist will usually massage in the direction of the heart, often with active or passive movement of the joints.
Swedish is the most common type of massage performed in the U.S.
