Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy combines hand movements, like rubbing and kneading, as well as varying pressure to manipulate your muscles and other soft tissues.

Many people associate massage with going to the spa, but it’s also a legitimate medical treatment. If you experience pain or stiffness from an underlying condition, massage therapy can provide lasting relief and restore your mobility.

What conditions can benefit from massage therapy?

Prosynergy PT uses massage therapy to treat several conditions, including:

  • Stress-related tension
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disorders
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Accidents

You might also benefit from massage therapy if you’re a physically active individual and suffer an injury.

What kinds of massage therapy are there?

Prosynergy PT offers several kinds of massage therapy, including:

Swedish massage

Your provider might recommend Swedish massage if your muscles are tense or you’re sensitive to touch. Swedish massage involves kneading, deep circular motions, vibration, and tapping.

Deep-tissue massage

Prosynergy PT might recommend deep-tissue massage if you have a common muscle problem, like soreness, injury, or imbalance. Treatment typically lasts 60-90 minutes and involves your massage therapist applying deep finger pressure and slow, methodical strokes to relieve muscle tension.

Sports massage

If you’re an athlete or physically active person, your provider might recommend sports massage. Sports massage is a full-body massage that can reduce your risk of injury. What’s more, it uses specific techniques designed to increase your flexibility and performance.

Trigger-point massage

Trigger-point massage provides relief from chronic pain. This kind of massage involves a combination of broad, flowing strokes and applied pressure. By breaking up trigger points (tough knots of muscle tissue), it’s possible to encourage circulation and reduce inflammation.

Which kind of massage therapy might benefit me?

The massage therapy that will most benefit you depends on several things, including your age, medical history, and symptoms. After reviewing your records and completing an in-office exam, your provider at Prosynergy PT can make treatment recommendations.

Is massage therapy safe?

Massage therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated. The providers at Prosynergy PT have years of experience providing massage therapy and work hard to ensure that the experience is comfortable and stress-free.
