How Does Massage Therapy Work?

Different types of massage therapies have varying benefits, but in general, these therapies can bring out what’s known as “the relaxation response”. This helps your breathing and heart rate slow down while lowering your blood pressure and the production of stress hormones. By helping to relax the muscles, massage therapists can reduce muscle spasms and relieve pressure caused by pinched nerves.

When a skilled massage therapist delivers massage therapy, it helps in increasing the blood flow to the targeted muscles and speeds up the delivery of nutrients in the affected area. Therapeutic massage is beneficial for speeding up recovery and alleviating the pain caused due to stressed and stiff muscles.

We at Oak Brook Medical Group use individualized treatment plans with specific techniques to provide you with pain relief and improve your overall well-being. Your massage therapist will work with your chiropractor and physical therapist to determine how best to treat you specifically.

Different Massage Therapy Techniques

There are different massage techniques that each serve a purpose in addition to reducing pain and increasing range of motion. At Oak Brook Medical Group, our therapists use the following types of massage techniques to help you get the expected results to live a pain-free life.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of therapeutic massage that focuses on the deep layers of the muscles, tendons, and fascia in the body. By applying slow, deliberate strokes to these targeted areas, massage therapists are able to help release pent-up tension and restore balance to the muscles. This massage therapy technique is helpful in relieving pain and chronic aches found in the lower back, upper back, shoulders, and other parts of the body.

You should get deep tissue massage if you want to:

  • Improve circulation and range of motion
  • Reduce inflammation of the muscles
  • Alleviate osteoarthritis symptoms
  • Improve postural problems

Sports Massage

Designed with runners and other athletes in mind, this type of massage technique offers excellent relief from chronic pain or acute pain like a frozen shoulder. If the muscle tension and pain are a result of muscle overuse or injury, sports massage might be the best treatment.

At Oak Brook Medical Group, we deliver sports massage in order to heal an injury, quicken workout recovery times, and promote muscle balance and tissue repair.

Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping is a unique approach to massage therapy that utilizes specialized tape in order to promote healing and reduce pain. This practice relies on the application of tape over targeted areas of the body, usually joints, muscles, tendons, or ligaments.

Once applied, this tape facilitates stretching and support, allowing for a greater range of motion and less soreness. In addition, kinesiotape works through the manipulation of the skin’s sensory receptors in order to minimize pain perception and promote recovery.

Whether you are dealing with an injury or simply wanting to improve your overall performance and mobility, kinesiotaping may be able to help.

If you are looking for a holistic form of treatment that can optimize your body’s natural healing capabilities, then book a session with us at Oak Brook Medical Group today.

While these are the most common massage techniques, we offer other forms of massage therapy, like cupping, scraping, body tempering, and flossing, that are recommended based on each individual’s treatment procedure.
