Which Massage is Best for Me?

There are many different types of massage therapies available in Brisbane. They vary from simple body rubs that athletes might have before and after a game of sports in order to warm up muscles, to hot stone massage, Swedish massage, remedial massage, Thai massage and deep tissue massage. Depending on what type of outcome you want, or what problem you have will be the deciding factor in the type of massage that is best for you.

What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage therapists can diagnose particular health complaints and address them specifically. If you have muscle spasms or a chronic pain condition, a remedial massage therapist will diagnose any potential problems such as sports injury, carpal tunnel, sciatica, stiff neck and headaches. They will provide a thorough assessment of your presenting concern, and develop a treatment plan to address it. If it is a persisting problem, or may have any other underlying issues, the massage therapist will refer you to a medical practitioner for appropriate diagnosis.

Relaxation Massage Helps Relieve Stress

A remedial massage therapist Brisbane north can provide a relaxation massage if you have presented with stress as an ongoing concern and would like assistance in helping to stay calm and rested. Relaxation massage includes Hawaiian style massage, or other beauty therapy style massages such as hot stone massage or cupping. These are not a “medical” style intervention, but generally focus on long sweeping strokes and gentle techniques that facilitate feelings of calm and well-being.

Swedish massage is a type of relaxation therapy, and a well known western style of massage treatment. According to Massage Envy , it is a treatment that uses the techniques of long sweeping strokes, and aims at improving circulation. Gentle kneading and percussion like tapping can be applied as part of the array of techniques performed in Swedish massage.

Holistic type massages can include aromatherapy massages, and shiatsu massage. Deep tissue massage is also another technique that focuses on the removal of toxins from the body and works on the underlying muscles deep below the surface of the skin.

Shiatsu massage is a treatment developed in Japan, and it focuses on the promotion of relaxation, and helps to prevent the buildup of stress.

Most massages focus on rubbing, kneading and tapping of the body, in order to facilitate circulation, remove toxins from the lymphatic system and tissues, and regulate the immune system. Massage helps to release relaxation hormones and promotes overall well-being.
