What are the different types of massage therapy?

Some of the soft tissue and Eastern massage therapy treatments available at the practice include:
During acupuncture massage, your provider presses on or pinches acupuncture points connected to nerves to achieve pain relief.
Shiatsu massage incorporates acupuncture techniques with other massage therapy methods. Your therapist might use strumming, rolling, vibrations, or other treatments to relieve tension and discomfort.
Tui Na massage kneads and stretches affected muscles to relieve tension over larger surface areas of your body.
Your specialist could combine meditation, yoga, or other holistic methods with massage to better balance energy, reduce pain, relieve tension, and improve your overall well-being.
Balinese massage uses relaxation massage techniques, such as percussion, acupressure, flicking, and skin rolling, along with essential oils, to improve blood flow and stimulate natural healing.
Deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage targets deep tissue layers, including connective tissues and muscles. It eases tight muscle fibers and reduces ongoing or severe musculoskeletal pain.
Trigger point massage
Trigger point massage applies pressure to tight muscle fibers to relieve tension, stress, and discomfort.
Myofascial release can relax and loosen muscles using gentle manipulation and pressure. Your therapist could also stretch the affected tissues or use specialized traction devices.
