About Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is one of the most popular methods of relieving soft tissue pain. It is particularly effective during rehabilitation when it’s combined with physical therapy, chiropractic care, or other rehabilitation services.

Our professional, licensed, and certified massage therapists provide a variety of specialized hands-on therapeutic massage that can help with a wide range of medical conditions and injuries. All of our therapists have undergone years of training in a variety of massage techniques and keep up to date in the field with continuing education courses.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a hands-on approach to improving your overall health and well-being. Its benefits include:

  • Increased circulation of nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to an injured area, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes
  • Pain relief
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Improved posture, flexibility, and range of motion
  • Reduced muscle tension and stiffness
  • Help treating muscle spasms, sprains and strains
  • Stress relief
  • Improved lymph drainage to aid the removal of toxins from the body
  • Immune system boost
  • Better sleep at night, so you’re less fatigued during the day

Your therapist may advise you to drink plenty of water following your massage therapy to help flush out toxins released by the massage. You may feel a little sore for a day or two after your massage therapy, but the benefits of massage last much longer than that.

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

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.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

New technologies to help you heal are being discovered almost daily. Some of the newer ones are designed to address your symptoms at a cellular level. That’s the case with deep-tissue laser therapy.

If you’re experiencing pain, inflammation, or mobility issues, deep-tissue laser therapy may be the safe, fast, and painless treatment you’ve been looking for.

The procedure itself is almost too good to be true: we stimulate your healing and recovery by simply guiding a special hand-held tool over your skin at the site of the injury. Laser light energy is able to penetrate deep into your muscles, nerves, and other tissue – where it stimulates cellular metabolism and turnover, helping relieve your pain and other symptoms.

Laser Therapy F.A.Q.

How long does each session take?

A typical deep-tissue laser therapy session takes just 10 minutes!

What can I expect to feel during treatment?

You may feel a soothing, warm sensation as the laser light energy gently penetrates tissue under your skin.

Will it hurt?

No, deep-tissue laser therapy is painless, although you may feel a slightly warm sensation as the device is guided over the top of your skin.

How soon can I expect results?

The cellular metabolism triggered by deep-tissue laser therapy begins immediately. Your body will continue to benefit from the effects of the therapy even after treatment, as the body’s natural healing processes get to work.

You may experience reduced pain and inflammation immediately, although optimal results should occur after about 5 sessions.
