Massage Therapy Services at Birmingham Wellness Center
Therapeutic massage is excellent for stress relief and relaxing sore, stiff muscles but it also is helpful in treating symptoms of a variety of conditions and helps promote healing from various types of injuries. Patients with back and neck pain who’ve been in auto accidents, occupational accidents or suffered sporting injuries typically benefit from treatments from our massage therapist. Those with progressive or congenital conditions such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel and even expected mothers can experience restored mobility, decreased pain and faster recovery times with massage.
Massage Therapy Services Available from Our Massage Therapist
Our massage therapist works very closely with our Birmingham Chiropractor at Birmingham Wellness Center to ensure that your chiropractic care and therapeutic massage approach complement one another for maximum results. Here are some of our most popular massage techniques at Birmingham Wellness Center.
By far, Swedish massage is the most popular method used by practitioners of massage therapy used on patients seeking pain relief and stress relief. Because of its multi-faced approach of using long smooth strokes, friction, kneading and rolling, percussion and vibration, Swedish massage is often the best choice for those suffering from injuries and chronic illnesses. Swedish massage takes into account one’s physiology and anatomy over the concepts of energy that is commonly an aspect of most therapeutic rub downs.
Deep Tissue Massage
If you have ‘knots’ in your muscles, deep rooted tension, chronic pain or injuries resulting from serious accidents, this form of focused therapeutic massage is ideal for addressing specific areas far beneath the surface of the skin. Deep tissue massage involves the massage therapist using slow, long strokes across the muscles to relieve tightness and pain in the body.
Many athletes suffer from soreness and tension due to repetitive motion injuries during practice sessions or game time. Sports massages can help treat and promote healing in sports injuries and even assist in recovery after hectic games. Our Birmingham massage therapist gently kneads the soft tissues and major muscle groups associated with the patient’s sport of choice. We may also use spinal decompression, joint mobilization and pressure point therapy to complement these treatments.
Also called pregnancy massage, many expectant mothers get tremendous relief with these specialized treatments that soothe tired, stressed muscles and joints, aching backs, and swelling. We have specialized tables at Birmingham Wellness Center for moms-to-be, and our therapist is certified in the gentle art of pregnancy massage.
