Offering Swedish Massage Therapy to Our Patients
Swedish Massage is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, and deep circular movements. Vibrations and tapping are also involved to help the client with circulation. The benefits of Swedish massage are numerous. Some include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.
Providing Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
Deep tissue massage uses techniques that include slower and more forceful strokes to target the deeper muscles and tissue layers. Lakeside Physical Therapy uses deep tissue massage as part of the treatment for muscles damaged from injury. Deep tissue massage can reduce inflammation-related pain from arthritis and tendinitis. Our therapist generally integrates it with other massage techniques, such as essential oils, aromatherapy, and hot stones.
