Therapeutic massage is a popular choice for pain and tension relief, and with good reason. Through gentle touch and pressure customized to the preferences of the client, the massage therapists at Coventina Day Spa use many modalities and techniques to help encourage specific pain relief.
Therapeutic Massage Vs. Deep Tissue Massage: What’s the Difference?
Many people are nervous about therapeutic massage because they think it’s the same as deep tissue. However, deep tissue, a type of massage that includes slow, deep movements to penetrate tissue and muscle, is only one form of therapeutic massage. There are many other types that each use varied levels of pressure and stretching, determined by the client’s level of comfort. Our therapists maintain communication with you throughout your session to ensure that you remain comfortable.
Therapeutic Massage Techniques
The goal of all therapeutic massage is to provide a therapy, or relief, from lingering pain, tension, or discomfort. Depending on the location of the issue and preferences of the client, several different massage techniques may be used, which can include deep tissue. Other types of therapeutic massage techniques including the following:
- Neuromuscular: Used to treat chronic pain and injuries
- Myofascial Release: Specialized technique involving gentle, consistent pressure
- Trigger Point: Treats localized pain using isolated pressure and deep breathing
- Sports: Helps relieve pain and injury associated with athletic activity
Oftentimes, therapists will use a combination of these techniques to help treat the client’s concerns. These treatments are offered in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute sessions.
