Therapeutic Massage is a general term for a range of healing approaches involving the practice of kneading or manipulating the muscles and other soft tissues with the intent of improving a person’s well-being or health. A large percentage of our clients seek therapeutic massage to help them relax and clear their minds.
At Country Hills Massage, all of our therapists are trained in relaxation massage. This type of massage is just as it sounds. It involves any combination of light non-invasive strokes and kneading which allow our clients to experience a deep and soothing state of physical and emotional relaxation. Relaxation massage is a smooth, continuous style of massage. This type of massage is known to improve circulation and range of movement, and to relieve muscular tension.
Sports massage is a great idea for athletes, and for anyone who is active on a regular basis. This type of massage combines different techniques to enhance sports performance and help athletes or active people recuperate. Sports Massage is an effective and very important component of any training program. Rest and recovery is an important part of all training programs, and massage therapy is an effective way to achieve.
Relaxation and therapeutic massage techniques may also be used during this type of treatment to encourage the body to heal. After a remedial or MVA treatment, your therapist will likely encourage you to do stretching and other exercises between sessions to promote recovery.
