Massage Therapy Q & A

What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?

The health benefits of massage therapy are countless when it comes to pain management, stress management, rehabilitation from sports injuries and chronic conditions, and overall general wellness. Massage therapy encompasses a variety of techniques and types of massage, including:

  • Swedish
  • Deep tissue
  • Shiatsu
  • Orthopedic medical
  • Sports massage

You can get massages to help lower your blood pressure and heart rate and enter a more relaxed state. Over time, regular massage therapy sessions can help you find relief from depression, anxiety, lower back pain, neck pain, and many other health conditions. Massage therapy is known to relieve stress, reduce anxiety, relax your muscles, and provide a host of other all-natural, good-for-you health perks.

A therapeutic massage can:

  • Reduce arthritis pain
  • Improve balance
  • Relieve chronic neck and low back pain
  • Reduce headache pain and migraine frequency
  • Increase range of motion
  • Help with digestive disorders
  • Ease fibromyalgia symptoms
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Promote feelings of overall well-being

What Types of Massage Therapy Complement Physical Therapy?

Many of the massage therapies that relax and rejuvenate are complementary to Mr. Oh’s specialization in the Myofascial Release Approach® to physical therapy. The Myofascial Release Approach is a safe, hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the myofascial (supporting) tissue in your body. This type of physical therapy helps eliminate pain, restore range of motion, and aid circulation to the areas being treated.

Myofascial Release is gentle, comfortable, and even restores blood flow to your brain, which can help alleviate headache pain as well. Ask Mr. Oh about the combined benefits of the Myofascial Release technique of physical therapy and massage therapy.
