Therapeutic Massage for Pain
Natural Pain Relief with Massage in Tacoma & Seattle
Swedish And Deep-Tissue Massage
Therapeutic massage for pain and injury is offered in both our Seattle and Tacoma clinics. We offer Therapeutic Massage, Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue Massage. Swedish Massage focuses on full body relaxation by using long, lighter strokes to target the superficial muscles and increasing blood circulation. Deep Tissue Massage focuses on specific painful areas by using firm pressure to relax deep muscles and tissues. Both are effective forms of Massage Therapy and are used for natural pain relief and injury rehabilitation.
Massage for Pain
Therapeutic massage is widely used for pain and injury, and can be used in many painful conditions such as, back pain, headaches, arthritis and fibromyalgia. Massage releases serotonin which acts as an “anti-pain” chemical, it also improves blood circulation which helps to remove toxins from the blood and adhesions from the tissue. Massage also increases time spent in deep sleep, which is important as deep sleep allows our bodies to heal the most, thus leading to less pain.
