Types of Massage
There are many types of massage. Each type focuses on different techniques to reduce your pain and make you feel relaxed and capable.
Swedish Massage: Swedish Massage is probably the most popular type of massage. It is used to reduce stress and tension throughout the entire body. The results are higher levels of oxygen in the blood, reduced muscle toxicity and improved circulation and flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage: Deep Tissue Massage uses pressure to create positive results. This technique manipulates the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia, which is the protective layer surrounding and connecting all muscles, bones, and joints.
Sports Massage: Sports Massage is used on all kinds of athletes. It focuses on areas of the body that are overused and compromised by repetitive and often intense movements used during sports.
Lymphatic Massage: Lymphatic Massage is a very gentle massage technique that uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph system. This massage is used for patients who have lymphedema, which is a fluid build up in your lymph system.
Craniosacral Therapy: CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, noninvasive massage therapy that focuses only on the bones of the head, spinal column, and sacrum. It is used primarily for patients who have chronic migraines or neck issues.
Prenatal Massage: Prenatal Massage relieves many of the discomforts experienced during pregnancy, like backaches and edema. Massage also reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension and can help alleviate depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release is a gentle blend of massage and stretching that uses traction, pressure, and positioning of the body to relax muscle spasms and break up painful adhesions in the fascia. At Motus Integrative Health in Northwest Indiana, we use Myofascial Release techniques to ease pressure in the fibrous bands of fascia that encase and connect muscles, organs, vessels, bones, cartilage and nerves throughout the body.
