Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage therapists typically use their hands and fingers for massage, but may also use their forearms, elbows and even feet. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure.

    Massage helps with the following conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Nerve pain
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Joint pain 

There are many different types of massage, including these common types:

  • Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
  • Deep massage. This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
  • Sports massage. Integrates various massage techniques, to help people involved in sport activities to prevent or treat injuries. 
  • Trigger point massage. This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. 
  • Shiatsu. Shiatsu means in Japanese "finger pressure"; it is a type of alternative medicine consisting of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques. It helps people relax and cope with issues such as stress, muscle pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression. Tokujiro Namikoshi (1905-2000) invented shiatsu and founded the first shiatsu college in 1940.. 
  • Acupressure. In acupressure, the same points on the body are used as in acupuncture, but are stimulated with finger pressure instead of with the insertion of needles. Acupressure is used to relieve a variety of symptoms and pain. It can be very effective both as prevention and as a treatment for many health conditions, including headaches, general aches and pains, colds and flu, arthritis, allergies, asthma, nervous tension, menstrual cramps, sinus problems, sprains, tennis elbow, and toothaches.
  • Reflexology
    Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. Reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness. These pressure points connect directly through the nervous system and affect the bodily organs and glands: any part of the body that is the source of pain or illness can be strengthened through the application of pressure at the respective foot or hand. Reflexology promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging the flow of blood. Reflexology helps with fibromyalgia, can alleviate allergy symptoms, stress, back pain, and chronic fatigue. 
  • Pain management massage     If you have chronic conditions like   arthritis, fibromyalgia or migraines, massage therapy may     be a helpful aid in managing pain.
