These benefits are why Revive Medical Center offers its customers four different types of massage therapy from licensed practitioners who are experts in their fields.
Deep Tissue Neuromuscular
For those who suffer from chronic pain and/or tension, we recommend our deep tissue neuromuscular massage. This massage works well in tandem with occupational and physical therapy and chiropractic or osteopathic treatments. As you can imagine by its name, deep tissue neuromuscular massage is intense, where practitioners release chronic tension through slow yet firm finger pressure along muscular grains. This massage increases blood flow to specific areas, releases irritated muscle points, releases compressed or entrapped nerves, improves distorted posture, and improves biomechanical dysfunction.
Hot Stone Therapy
If you suffer from arthritis, carpel tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, or another condition that causes chronic pain, you might want to discuss hot stone therapy with one of our practitioners. Imagine laying down and having warm stones placed on the areas in which you hurt to release muscle stiffness and then enjoying a full body massage to ease away the pain. This is what hot stone therapy does, and you can even sleep through it, which works well if you book a 1 1/2-hour session. Hot stone therapy increases your circulation and metabolism as well as reduces chronic stress, chronic tension, and muscle spasms. Hot stone therapy and the full body massage once the stones are removed also increase your mobility.
Lymphatic drainage massage is perfect for someone who suffers from a lymphatic illness or who is recovering from a recent surgery. Developed in Germany, lymphatic drainage was initially designed to treat patients with lymphedema, or the accumulation of lymph fluid. Certain types of cancer treatments can cause lymphedema. Lymphatic drainage massage helps release fluid accumulation in the lymph nodes through light massage on and near the lymph node area. The massage follows the lymph nodes’ natural drainage path to encourage fluid to be released from the nodes and drained properly. This relieves edema (swelling), skin disorders, and gastrointestinal and metabolic issues.
Finally, Revive Medical Center is thrilled to offer our patients pregnancy massage. Yes, pregnancy is one of the best times of your life, but it is also incredibly stressful to your body, mind, and spirit. Pregnancy massage can help relieve the stress and pain associated with being pregnant, and if you’re pregnant while reading this, that sounds good right about now doesn’t it? Obviously, because you are pregnant, special precautions will be taken during your pregnancy massage, including your body’s position during the massage and certain areas the practitioner must leave alone. Don’t be fooled, however. Pregnancy massage will relax you and reduce your stress as well as relieve muscle pain and spasms, reduce swelling, boost your mood, improve your skin’s pliability, and help you through labor.
Doesn’t a massage sound wonderful? Revive Medical Center is happy to offer massage therapy to our patients as part of our overall health and wellness services. The benefits of any of these four massage techniques help place and keep you on the path to total body wellness.
