Massage is not only an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension, but also helps with anxiety, headaches, insomnia, TMJ and fibromyalgia. A good therapist will have you feeling cared for and comfortable. Communication is essential in helping your therapist to give you the best care for you and your concerns. Relaxation massage is slow, calming yet effective in relieving muscle tension and stress. Deep tissue is more focused on specific muscle groups and uses techniques specific to relieve pain from injury or overuse. Yes, you can have a combination of the two!
