Licensed professional massage therapists are well aware of the healing power of massage on the body. A great massage can eliminate the stress of a busy day or hectic lifestyle, which in itself can provide enormous benefits to the body. Massage can also ease the pain of muscle fatigue, muscle spasm, cramping, and help to alleviate migraines. Our professional therapists are also trained in prenatal, TMJ, cranial sacral, and other specialized massage techniques.
Deep tissue massage can be even more rehabilitative, relieving chronic pain, aiding in muscle healing, facilitating toxin removal, eliminating scar tissue, improving posture, and preventing carpel tunnel syndrome. Massage improves circulation and boosts immunity.
Oftentimes we find that massage and chiropractic complement each other perfectly and facilitate wellness and healing remarkably well. Whether you experience chronic issues or not, you will always leave a massage appointment feeling great.
Emotional and Psychological Benefits
Fatigue, depression, and anxiety are just as detrimental to overall wellness of physical problems – something professional massage therapists have always known. Massage has provided care and relief to those with emotional challenges for years.
Because it aids in the release of hormones in the body, massage therapy can help with anxiety and depression. Because massage therapy reduces stress, it can help with the feelings of worry and fear common in anxiety disorders. Tension and anxiety can cause sleeplessness, and by helping to restore the body’s electrochemical balance, massage therapists encourage relaxation, improve sleep, and reduce fatigue. Studies have even shown that massage can enhance focus and attention.
Types of Massage
Our Kirkland massage therapists employ a range of styles and techniques to give you the best massage experience and address any individual concerns you bring to the clinic. You are encouraged to discuss any problems with your massage therapist when you come in for your appointment. They’ll help you decide which type of massage is the best treatment for you.
This is the best massage to take away the stress of the day and encourage relaxation. Your massage therapist will help you feel calm and content in a gentle, pain-free session. In addition to helping you relax, this massage can relieve muscle pain, tension, and cramping. Relaxation massage once a week can be an effective treatment for headaches and migraines.
A full body relaxation massage is a great option for anyone hoping to relax and improve their overall health and wellness.
Swedish massage is a full body massage that’s gentle and ideal for people new to massage. Swedish massage is relaxing, gentle, and alleviates muscle tension and muscle knots. Your massage therapist will use a combination of kneading, long, flowing strokes, circular techniques, a passive joint movement.
Swedish massage is safe and comfortable for almost everyone and will make you feel your best.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is the best massage we offer for the treatment of chronic pain, injuries, and other ailments. Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than other massage methods, and while it is more intense than relaxation massage or Swedish massage, you should never feel any discomfort. Deep tissue massage therapy involves a massage therapist using increased pressure to reach the deepest layers of your muscles and connective tissues, which helps to alleviate chronic muscle problems from tension, imbalance, or past injuries.
Deep tissue massage is a full body massage that helps you relax and is an effect treatment for many muscular problems.
