What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy, also known as Swedish massage, is the most common form of massage therapy, which involves using massage oils or creams with long, smooth continuous hand strokes, kneading and other movements focused on the superficial skin layers and muscle.
How Does Massage Therapy Work?
Massage therapy improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues; it relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other wastes, which reduce pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
Why Do People Get Remedial Massage Therapy?
People get remedial massage therapy for relaxation or for a variety of health conditions:
- Back pain
- Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and tendinitis
- Stress relief and stress-related conditions
- Headaches and migraines
- Muscle and related conditions such as spasms, strains and sprains
- Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Circulatory and respiratory problems
- Post-injury and post-surgical rehabilitation
- Slimming & Detoxing
Massage therapy relieves stress by lowering levels of hormones such as cortisol plus it also appears to enhance immune function.
A Typical Massage Therapy Session
A typical massage therapy session is between 30 and 90 minutes. Your massage will begin with a brief consultation and review of your symptoms (if any), medical history, and lifestyle.
You will be asked to undress and change into a gown and lie face down under a blanket on a padded massage bed. Throughout your massage, you are covered at all times, except for the part of your body being treated. After your massage, you will be given water or a herbal tea to drink. Do take your time getting up… if you sit or stand too quickly you may feel lightheaded or dizzy.
Massage therapy will not hurt… in fact, most people feel especially calm and relaxed after their treatment. Occasionally, people experience mild temporary aching when the massage therapist applies pressure over “knots” and other areas of muscle tension. If the pressure is too strong for you, let the massage therapist know.
Massage therapy is not recommended for certain people:
- People with infectious skin disease, rashes, unhealed wounds, bruises, inflamed skin, tumours, abdominal hernia, or areas of recent fractures.
- Immediately post-surgery.
- Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor.
- People prone to blood clots. There is a risk of blood clots being dislodged. If you have heart disease, check with your doctor before having a massage.
- Pregnant women should check with their doctor first if they are considering getting a massage.
