When you’re looking for a useful complement to your chiropractic care in Trinity, FL, Swedish massage may be just what you need. Swedish massage, also known as relaxation massage or classical massage, is what people usually think about when they think of massage. You might not have thought of what professional massage therapists bring to the table:
Technique – There are five distinct strokes a Swedish massage therapist need to master: kneading (petrissage), sliding (effleurage), tapping (tapotement), fiber manipulation, and vibration or shaking. Learning these so that the proper amount of movement is used without causing you pain takes time and training. All of these methods can be used in any combination depending on the interests and needs of the client.
Strength – Massage therapists use their hands for hours a day working on the body, and this constant exercise allows them to be as strong at the end of the massage as they were at the beginning. It also allows them to work through the layers of your body in order to give you the most relief possible.
Time – When you get a massage at home from a loved one, it’s not often that you can decide how long the massage lasts. Massage therapists are there for you for the full 30-minute, 60-minute, or 90-minute sessions.
Peace – Massage therapists can talk to you if you want, or they can just be quiet and do their job. They won’t burden you with the problems of their day if you’d rather just listen to soothing music. And speaking of music…
Equipment – Music, soothing smells, and a professional massage table…it all comes together to make the perfect massage experience.
