Massage Therapy in Tallahassee, FL
Massage therapy offers many benefits to chiropractic patients and anyone else suffering from pain or stress. Visiting a massage therapist should be a regular part of your wellness plan, just like visiting your doctor for a yearly checkup and going to the eye doctor for exams.
What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy uses manual manipulation to relieve pain, stress, and tension. By using their hands, massage therapists manipulate the soft tissues of the body. There are numerous types of massage, including deep tissue therapy.
Here are some common massage types:
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Just like it sounds, this type of massage works with your head, or more like the bones of the head. It also covers the spinal column all the way to the sacrum. This therapy removes stress and helps alleviate pain.
Deep Tissue Massage
This type of massage gets deeper into your muscles and the connective tissue to help relieve pain from injuries. It's a slower technique of massage, with more forceful motions.
Massage is still important even for pregnant mothers, and it can help with continued range of motion as you put on baby weight. This type of massage uses a prenatal pillow.
While deep tissue massage will help with sports injuries, there is also sports massage. Similar to Swedish massage, sports massage helps prevent injuries as well as helping with healing.
Swedish massage is one of the most common types of massage therapy. It uses kneading, long strokes, tapping, and circular motions to help with relaxation.
The Benefits of Massage
Whether you're retired or not, you want to enjoy your days lounging on the beaches and hitting the links in Florida. Massage therapy can help you find that comfort and relaxations you're looking for.

Pain relief, including headache relief
Helps with depression, by mood improvement
