Massage therapy has been essential in holistic healing for thousands of years. Over the centuries, it’s evolved to include new techniques for targeting specific ailments or goals. MindBody Med in Seattle offers a variety of modalities, each with unique benefits.
- Deep Tissue
- Trigger Point
- Tui Na
- Prenatal & Pregnancy
1. Swedish Massage For Deep Relaxation
Swedish massage is one of the most popular therapies and includes kneading, flowing strokes, circular motions, and sometimes passive stretching. It’s an excellent choice if you prefer a gentler touch.
- Increased Relaxation
- Relieve Muscle Tension
- Improved circulation
2. Deep Tissue For Chronic Muscle Pain
Deep tissue massage uses slower, more vigorous strokes. The therapist will use forearms, knuckles, fingers, and elbows to apply pressure to areas of tension. It’s important to communicate with your therapist if the pressure is too much—it should never hurt or cause you to tense up.
- Relieves Chronic Muscle Pain & Tension
- Improve Flexibility
- Improve Posture
3. Trigger Point Therapy To Relieve Tension
A trigger point, or muscle knot, can form when a muscle suffers from overuse or trauma. Trigger point therapy may include the entire body but will focus on releasing those knots.
- Releases Muscle Knots
- Increases Range Of Motion
- Helps Reduce Headaches & Migraines
4. Sports Massage To Increase Healing Time & Prevent Injury
Sports massage is ideal for treating repetitive injuries that often come with playing sports and intense exercise. It will focus on an area of injury and uses light to deep strokes to loosen and stretch tight tissue as well as increase circulation.
- Increase Healing Time
- Improved Athletic Performance
- Reduces Chances Of Future Injury
5. Tui Na To Create Health & Harmony
Tui Na is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine’s belief that energy blockages cause pain and illness. Similar to the principles of acupuncture, Tui Na targets meridians and acupoints using fingers instead of needles. Depending on your needs, it can be vigorous or light and may include acupressure, reflexology, and myofascial release.
- Releases Energy Blockages
- Creates Harmony & Balance In The Body
- Promotes Relaxation
6. Prenatal Massage For The Mother-To-Be
Prenatal massage is gentle, similar to Swedish, except you’ll be lying on your side. It’s designed for mothers-to-be after their first trimester. It focuses on the lower back, hips, and legs and helps to reduce the discomforts associated with pregnancy.
- Reduces Back & Leg Pain
- Helps With Feelings of Anxiety About Childbirth
- Improves Sleep Quality
