Massage therapy is a manual treatment that uses a combination of targeted pressure, rubbing, and kneading of the skin to ease tension, relieve pain and encourage the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
It’s a relaxing, comfortable, and noninvasive approach to many health problems. What’s more, treatment is pain-free, affordable, and provides lasting results.
At I & B Medical Associates, the team uses massage therapy to treat various health problems, including:
You might also benefit from massage therapy if you’re pregnant. Massage can relieve aches and pains and help your body adjust to the growing fetus.
There are several types of massage therapy, including:
Swedish massage is a full-body massage that uses light pressure and gentle hand motions. It’s ideal for people with sensitive skin and/or low pain tolerance. Typically, Swedish massage includes a combination of deep circular motions, vibrating, tapping, and passive joint movement.
Trigger point massage uses targeted pressure and slow hand strokes to ease tension in the deepest layers of muscle. Over time, these motions cause your muscles to relax, relieving soreness, tightness, and chronic muscle pain.
Sports massage uses soothing strokes and passive joint techniques to enhance your recovery after a race, game, or another type of athletic competition. It relieves pain, increases flexibility, and reduces the risk of injury in the future.
Prenatal massage is designed specifically for pregnant people. It helps reduce stress and eases muscle tension. Your I & B Medical Associates provider can even make recommendations to help make your pregnancy more comfortable.
Most massage therapy appointments take between 60 and 90 minutes* but may take longer depending on your needs. After a review of your medical records and a physical exam, the team at I & B Medical Associates can develop a custom massage therapy treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
