Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage. But this is not always the case. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating, but it may not be what you need on a particular day. A good therapist will apply the specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address your need, and sometimes that’s a lighter touch.
There are several different types of therapeutic massage in addition to deep tissue massage, such as:
Sinus massage is a gentle massage around the neck, head, and sinus areas. There are many goals for sinus massages, but mainly to alleviate some of the pain and inflammation and to help promote drainage of the sinuses.
The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and improves flexibility in the body. Long, gliding strokes, kneading and circular movements.

Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy addresses. Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue..
Hot Stones are often paired with Swedish Massage. Stones are heated and used with oils to sooth, warm, and massage your muscles. This allows your body to relax and release tension and stress.
During pregnancy, your body goes through major structural and physiological changes, some of which produce discomforts and concerns that can be addressed with appropriate massage therapy and body use guidance. Prenatal massage therapy is beneficial throughout the nine months of a low-risk pregnancy.
