It can be hard to live life to the fullest when you’re dealing with chronic aches and pains. That’s why a registered massage therapist uses a number of massage techniques to target the source of pain and help you feel better faster so you can get back to living your best life. Keep reading to learn more.

The Techniques That Registered Massage Therapists Use

Registered massage therapists identify areas of the body where muscles are inflamed or knots (myofascial trigger points) have formed and design a treatment program to alleviate the pain and resolve the problem. They’re skilled in a number of different massage styles and know which one to apply to your particular situation.

The Different Types of Massage

There are several different types of massage, each with their own unique benefits. Some are designed to treat pain or specific conditions while others are focused on helping you relax so you can let go of stress and tension. Keep reading to learn more about each:

  • Deep Tissue Massage

    This is a therapeutic massage designed to target aches and pains deep within muscle tissue. Your massage therapist will use their knuckles and elbows to apply intense pressure to the affected tissue. Deep tissue massages are typically used to target painful areas like your neck and shoulders.
  • Trigger Point Therapy

    Another therapeutic technique, trigger point therapy identifies areas where muscle is overworked and a knot has formed. Your registered massage therapist will use trigger point therapy to remove the knot and return the muscle to a relaxed state. Trigger point therapy is similar to deep tissue massage but instead of working on an entire muscle area, it uses a much more targeted approach.
  • Swedish Massage

    Swedish massage is one of the most common types of massage. Swedish massages are a great option if you’d like to relieve stress, loosen tense muscles and relax. This technique uses calm, gentle but firm pressure and kneading and rolling to loosen muscles and alleviate stress.
  • Relaxation Massage

    Relaxation massages use a combination of Swedish massage techniques and ambiance to create a relaxing environment to help you relax. Let go of tension and stress in your back, neck and shoulders with a relaxation massage.

While some types of massage are intense and invigorating and others are calming and relaxing, all types of massage offered at European Massage & Physiotherapy Center are designed to be healing to the body. We’re devoted to making you feel great!
