Massage therapy has been used for thousands of years to aid in healing and increased well-being. Today, massage therapy is a recognized method of helping individuals recover from physical injury and emotional trauma. There are many benefits from massage therapy that you may not know. Here is a closer look at this health practice that has offered relief to millions of people.

What Is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is an integrative health practice that involves the manipulation of soft tissues of the body to relieve tension, ease pain, and provide increased circulation and nutrients to muscles, tendons, and ligaments. In the past, massage therapy has been considered an obscure auxiliary health practice, but over the years, scientific research has shown massage can be a helpful therapy for many medical conditions.

Types of Massage Therapy

At Nouveau Day Spa, our massage therapists specialize in many different therapies. Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point massage, and lymphatic drainage massage are just a few of the different methods that are used. Massage techniques can be used on the back, neck, shoulders, scalp, arms, and legs. Some types of massage are combined with acupressure, yoga, aromatherapy, and other techniques like hot stonescupping, or hot oil to increase their effects. Pregnancy massage is another type of massage therapy that can help reduce back strain, joint pain, and poor sleep that often occur due to hormonal and bodily changes during gestation.

Health Benefits of Massage Therapy Sessions

Massage therapy offers many health and emotional benefits, including:

  • Reduced muscle stiffness and pain
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved immune system function
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Heightened mood levels
  • Increased relaxation
  • Increased energy

Different massage techniques can target different concerns. When you schedule an appointment at our day spa, we will ask about your concerns and treatment goals to recommend the best service or combination of services for your care.

After Your Massage Session

After a massage, individuals often report feelings of deep relaxation or sleepiness. Your muscles may feel a bit sore, but this effect soon dissipates. People generally report feeling relief from stress and a sense of general well-being that lasts for some time after the massage session. Massages can be provided frequently to help you maintain stress and tension relief.
