If anyone ever tells you that all massages are “basically the same”, kindly ignore them. Depending on what you need a massage for, there are some kinds that may be more suitable than others. Getting the wrong massage may be painful or could potentially prolong an injury. Before booking an appointment at Mantra Wellness Centre, check out these massage types to find out which massage therapy is right for you.
Massage for Chronic Pain
Do you suffer from a nagging pain in your back, neck, or other areas that just won’t go away, no how strong your pain-killers are? It’s time for your pain and tension to be released through deep tissue massage. As the name suggests, a deep tissue massage is intended to break up the tension that’s flowing across your muscle fibres and tendons. By concentrating on these hard-to-reach areas, your massage therapist can release the pain your tissues have been holding onto. This is an intense massage that is proven to fight pain and tension.
You can also try raindrop therapy for your chronic pain. Raindrop therapy is a massage that incorporates a special blend of essential oils that helps relieve pain and release tension and stress.
Massage for Stress
Massage is the not-so-secret key to unwinding after a stressful period in your life. Stress lies beneath our muscles and tissues, which makes it difficult for our bodies to relax, even if we try. If your shoulders are up by your ears, you probably need to unload the stress in your body. While all massages can fight the physical symptoms of stress, we think that a traditional relaxation massage will make you feel brand new. A relaxation massage is perfect for beginners, as it’s gentle and soothing and promotes better circulation while eliminating muscle tension, stress, and injury. You’ll walk out of your therapy session feeling completely relaxed.
Massage for Injury
Participating in leisure activities or playing sports is a great way to exercise, manage your weight, and relieve stress; but repetitive movements, such as swinging a racket, bending your knees, or twisting your body can cause strains and pains in your body that may prevent you from enjoying those activities. If this sounds like you, it might be time to book a sports massage with a Mantra Wellness massage therapist. Like a deep tissue massage, a sports massage is an intense process that incorporates many techniques to break down stress and tension in those painful areas.
No matter what kind of massage you choose, Mantra Wellness Centre welcomes you into a friendly, inviting atmosphere that automatically relaxes you and helps you unwind and tune out.
