Patient Benefits

Recommending a deep tissue massage depends on your needs. Our massages are meant to target problem areas and provide the following benefits:

  • Pain: Chronic pains are alleviated, especially in the lower back.
  • Range of Motion: After a massage, the muscles and tissues are relaxed, allowing for improved range of motion evident after an injury.
  • Mood: Massage  Therapy has been shown to relax a patient and improve their mood while lowering anxiety. (cancer.org)
  • Circulation: Tense muscles and inflammation constrict blood flow. Through the loosening of muscle tissue, circulation is improved lowering tension and allowing the healing process to take place.

Massages will also help with posture-related problems, headaches and muscle spasms. These are all commonly seen after injuries. Reliance on medications is also reduced as a result of the pain-reduction benefits of massage therapy.

After an Injury

Deep Tissue Massage | Kelso, WAInjuries lead to muscle tension and adhesions. Muscle tissue, ligaments and tendons will often experience pain due to inflamed tissue. A block in circulation and increased pain will limit a patient’s overall mobility and lead to further, unwarranted pain and longer recovery time.

Deep tissue methods target adhesions. As the muscles and tendons are worked on, blood flow is able to return to the injured area. This will promote the healing process, relieve pain and restore the movement that has been lost after an injury.

The faster that a massage takes place, the sooner your body will be able to heal.
