Therapeutic massage is a natural, whole-person approach to treatment, involving the manipulation of soft tissues by rubbing, kneading, or pressing on particular areas of your body. Massages can be light with gentle strokes, or deep pressure kneading. The type of massage therapy given depends on the severity of your symptoms.
Your soft tissue (skin, muscles, tendons or ligaments) are stimulated to transmit electrical signals to the rest of your body. These signals alleviate pain or tension in the affected area and stimulate circulation to heal muscle damage. Additionally, massages can help release endorphins, the body’s natural pain reliever, to reduce hormone stress levels.
The massage therapists at Axness Integrative Medicine aim to provide long-term relief from discomfort by offering a variety of massages based on your specific needs. They take the time to discuss the purpose of your visit to make sure they provide massage treatments that address your critical areas of concern.
