Types of Massage Therapy at Thorassic Park in Bradenton
Our massage therapists will recommend the best massage for your specific conditions and health needs. We offer the following massage therapies:
Deep Tissue Massage
This is commonly used to treat musculoskeletal issues such as sports injuries and strains. It mainly involves applying controlled pressure through slow, deep strokes on the inner layers of the affected connective tissues and muscles.
Deep tissue massage can help clear scar tissue after an injury, reduce muscle tension, and improve blood flow.
These are commonly performed on athletes and designed for soft tissue injuries. While it's generally performed with the hands, the therapist may also use their forearms, elbows, and knees as well as massage devices to apply the needed pressure.
Trigger Point Massage
A trigger point is a tightness within a muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. For example, a trigger point in your upper back may produce referred pain around the neck region. Consequently, this neck pain can cause sharp, intense headaches.
Trigger point massage aims to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. The massage relieves constricted areas in the muscles, instantly reducing your pain and discomfort.
This focuses on relaxing and easing tensed muscles and damaged soft tissues. Clinical massage is used to relax your tensed muscles, allowing the therapist to apply deeper pressure for more effective results with little to no discomfort.
The lymphatic system helps to eliminate waste in your body. A healthy lymphatic system depends on the smooth movements of your musculoskeletal structures. However, muscle injuries can cause fluids to build up in your lymph nodes, leading to lymphedema.
