Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Therapeutic massage involves the rubbing, kneading, and pressing of your soft tissues, which includes your skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Because massage takes many aspects of your health into account, it’s considered a whole-person, holistic therapy. Massage therapy comes in a wide variety of forms, ranging from those that involve light, gentle strokes to those that use deep, kneading pressure.

How does massage work?

When your soft tissues are manipulated during a massage, it stimulates the transmission of electrical signals, both in the area that’s being massaged, as well as throughout your body. These signals combine with the healing power of touch to help alleviate tension and pain, heal muscle damage, create a sense of calm, stimulate circulation, and activate your lymphatic system to clear waste products. Massage also stimulates the release of endorphins and helps reduce stress hormone levels.

What are the benefits of massage?

You may already know that treating yourself to a massage can leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. But what you may not know is that having regular massages can provide a wide range of benefits that go much deeper. Making massage a routine part of your health and wellness routine can help:

  • Improve muscle tone, range of motion, and joint function
  • Improve circulation and digestion
  • Reduce chronic inflammation
  • Reduce anxiety and improve sleep
  • Provide relief for chronic pain
  • Reduce headaches or migraines
  • Boost immune system function

Which types of massage are available at The Spa in Saxonburg?

There are roughly 100 different techniques of massage and bodywork, and each one is designed to meet certain needs or achieve specific goals. The massage techniques that are offered at The Spa in Saxonburg include:

Swedish massage — This popular technique uses kneading, deep circular movements, long strokes, vibration, and tapping to enhance circulation, and to relax and energize you. Swedish massage helps enhance blood flow to the heart, helps removes waste products from tissues, and gently stretches ligaments and tendons.  

Deep tissue massage — This technique uses slow, forceful strokes to target deep muscle and connective tissue; it’s often used to help heal traumatic muscle damage or release chronic muscular tension. Deep tissue massage promotes physical relaxation, reduces stress levels, and helps increase range of motion.

Reflexology — This special thumb and finger technique is used to stimulate specific reflex points on hands and feet. Reflex points are specific areas on your hands or feet that are believed to correspond to different body organs and systems. Reflexology may be used to decrease anxiety, enhance wellbeing, and improve headache pain.
