Soft Tissue Massage

Relaxing Soft Tissue Massage Therapy

A Soft Tissue Massage aims to alleviate aches, pains and injuries that are attributed to the body’s soft tissues. This is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.

Soft Tissue Massage

A Soft Tissue Massage is a specific type of massage which aids in relaxing muscles, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, improves the healing time of strained ligaments and muscular tissue, reduces the inflammation of joints and heart rate, improves range of motion and joint flexibility, increases endorphins, strengthens the immune system, decreases spasms, improves oxygen flow and helps to relieve muscle tension.

Techniques We Use

There are several different massage techniques including:

  • Trigger Points A trigger point massage provides relief from chronic muscle pain.
  • It targets the muscles and promotes flexibility of the body’s connective tissue.
  • Swedish Massage This technique can also be referred to as the broad handed technique. It is used to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from muscles.
  • Friction Friction creates heat used to promote healing in an injured area.
