Massage Q & A

What is massage?

Massage, or massage therapy, is a relaxing experience with remarkable benefits for your health and well-being. It might seem like a once-in-a-while luxury on your first examination, but many individuals get regular massages to enjoy better circulation and other health benefits. 

Typically, massages are hands-on. Your massage therapist uses their strength and dexterity to manipulate your deep and superficial soft tissues. The pressure they place on your body can be fixed or dynamic.

What types of massage can I get?

Enhance MD Body& Skin Clinic offers a variety of options for massage therapy to meet your requirements and match your preferences. Dr. Rosario recommends massage techniques like:

Relaxation massage

A relaxation massage involves medium pressure and is meant to be soothing and not uncomfortable. Enhance MD Body & Skin Clinic offers relaxation massages in a tranquil environment enhanced by soft music and warm towels.

Sports massage

If you’re an athlete or if you work out regularly, a sports massage helps relieve muscle pain and overuse injuries. It also loosens your muscles to improve flexibility, making you less prone to future injuries from your workouts. 

Therapeutic massage

Therapeutic massages like myofascial and neuromuscular massages relieve targeted pain and can help reduce stress.

Which areas can I target with a massage?

Some massages are meant to cover many areas of your body, but you can also get a targeted massage for just one or two areas that need the attention. If you choose to get a targeted massage, it can relieve pain or tension in your:

  • Back and glutes
  • Neck and shoulders
  • Arms and legs
  • Hands and feet
  • Trigger points (tight muscle knots)

A targeted massage may be the right option for you if you have a specific injury or point of pain that takes precedence over all other areas until you relieve it. 

What are the benefits of getting a massage?

Massages have more health benefits than most people initially assume. You should consider coming in for massage therapy at Enhance MD Body & Skin Clinic for these reasons:

  • Musculoskeletal pain relief
  • Relief from inflammation
  • Tension and stiffness relief
  • Improved flexibility and range of motion
  • Improved blood and lymph circulation
  • Stress reduction
  • Increased mind and body awareness
  • Faster healing

You’ll discuss your desired benefits and reasons for getting a massage with Dr. Rosario before you start so you can confidently choose the type of massage best suited for you.
