Benefits of Massage Therapy
From relaxation to rehabilitation, Massage Therapy offers a variety of benefits to those suffering from stress and anxiety as well as individuals seeking to improve their physical condition from stresses associated with injury, over-use, and health related conditions.

- Enhance immunity through stimulated lymph flow – the body’s natural defense system.
- Improve circulation to pump oxygen and nutrients into the tissues and vital organs.
- Relax and soften injured, tired, overused muscles and reduce muscle spasm and cramping.

Relaxation/Deep Tissue/ and Sports Massage
Relaxation massage uses traditional Swedish massage techniques which include a number of gliding and kneading movements to promote relaxation and stress reduction. Traditionally, relaxation massage is a lighter touch with less focus on therapeutic application of the techniques.
Deep tissue massage utilizes therapeutic massage techniques to help realign the deeper muscular and connective tissue layers of the body. With a concentrated, more focused touch, deep tissue massage is commonly used to help alleviate ailments and problem areas such as chronic muscle tension and pain.
Sports massage includes both pre- and post- event massage as well as restorative massage, which help to allow the body to continue with additional physical training. Restorative and rehabilitative massage is often utilized after injury or intense training to help return the body to a healthy state. Though often used by athletes, sports massage can help to increase range of motion and has a more intense focus on facilitated stretching and triggered muscle release.
Swedish, deep tissue, and sports massage techniques can all be applied to help individuals seeking discomfort associated with medical conditions and/or injuries. Serenity Health & Wellness Center is proud to offer rehabilitative massage services to individuals approved through Worker’s Compensation.
Maternity massage utilizes traditional Swedish massage techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety associated with pregnancy. Expectant mothers are placed in a more comfortable side-lying position which protects the mother and baby. Pregnancy massage help to decrease discomfort by relaxing the muscular and skeletal discomfort often brought on by a shift in the expectant mothers hormones.
Stone massage involves placing and gliding various sized therapy stones along the spine, shoulders and neck to promote deep relaxation and trigger the natural healing process. Hot stone massage utilized basalt stones while cold stone therapy often utilizes stones with natural cooling properties, such as marble.
Both hot and cold stone massage can help to reduce inflammation and improve circulation. Hot stones help to relax the muscles before massage treatment, helping to enhance deep tissue techniques and promote relaxation while cold stones help to reduce damage caused by trauma and ease the mind into a relaxed, less anxious state.
Neuromuscular therapy provides treatment for acute and chronic conditions involving soft tissue injuries. This technique involves the use of myofascial trigger points to induce a response from of the central nervous system that reduces the pain associated with soft tissue conditions. Treatment of the cause of the pain is the goal of Neuromuscular Therapy.
Neuromuscular Techniques are used to treat a number of chronic conditions such as back and neck pain/injuries, postural distortions, nerve impingements and tight joints which create pain such as the Temporal-Mandibular Joint (TMJ).
Myofacial Release/Trigger Point Therapy
Myofascial Release is a technique used to release the fascia, a vital soft connective tissue component, that can become restricted thus creating pain in the body. Restrictions can be caused by disease, overuse or inactivity, trauma, or even infection.
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy utilizes deep pressure at points of muscle tension to manipulate the soft tissue restrictions and reduce associated pain. Therapist utilizing this technique often use knuckles, elbows, and forearms to create a deep pressure to stretch and elongate the underlying fascia.
Craniosacral therapy works with the brain, spinal cord, supporting membranes and cerebral spinal fluid flowing throughout. It is a light touch technique that releases restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the function of the central nervous system.
This technique has been shown to be effective in treating conditions such as migraines, chronic back and neck pain, spinal cord injuries, chronic fatigue and emotional disorders, fibromyalgia and connective tissue conditions, scoliosis and orthopedic conditions.
The lymphatic system is the body’s main defense system. It filters fluids and encourages excess toxins to be removed from the body. Lymphatic Drainage technique helps to stimulate the flow of lymph through the lymphatic vessel system and remove access fluids which cause swelling and associated pain.
Lymphatic Drainage is most commonly used to reduce minor edema, boost a sluggish immune system, increase energy levels, stimulate circulation of lymph in the skin, assist in healthy scar formation, and to stimulate lymph flow when lymph nodes have been removed.
Oncology massage is provided to individuals suffering from a variety of forms of cancer. This massage technique is intended to help relax the client and reduce fatigue and pain associated with various treatment regimens.
It should be noted that anyone currently seeking treatment for cancer should discuss the benefits of oncology massage with their doctor prior to scheduling an appointment. Certified oncology therapists often require written permission in order to perform this type of therapy.
