What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy is centuries old and is considered a sacred practice of holistic healing. In Ayurveda, massage therapy was “life health” medicine. Which was used to treat injuries, address illnesses, and relieve pain.
Massage is a healing technique that has been passed down through generations where its benefits are still being appreciated.
Today, massage therapy is performed by licensed massage therapists. Massage uses different pressures, movements, and techniques to soften muscles and tissues. It releases stress and tension, provides relief from aches and pains, and improves the immune system. Additionally, it reduces anxiety, improves sleep, heals injuries, and supports wellness and self-care.
Types of Massage Therapy
We use slow light to moderate pressure to reduce stress and muscle tension throughout the body. Relaxation massage sessions are either 60 or 90 minutes.
This is a various blend of massage techniques with appropriate pressure to meet your needs. Our goal with therapeutic massage is to return your body to proper function. We accomplish this by decreasing pain while increasing your range of motion. Additionally, it is very beneficial in decreasing stress.
Therapeutic massage is highly beneficial for headaches, neck and low back pain, and restless legs. As well as pain in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and foot. This massage therapy can be used for full-body or spot treatments depending on your needs. Sessions are usually 60 or 90 minutes long.
At Anchored in Health in Overland Park, IL we use very light pressure in lymphatic massage therapy. Allowing for a full body treatment to help manually drain the lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage is very helpful in boosting the immune system and decreasing swelling and pain. It is especially beneficial to see a massage therapist for this after surgery. Sessions are usually 60-minutes long.
