Benefits of Massage Therapy
Therapeutic massages aren’t just for relieving stress; they’re actually good for overall health too! A massage therapist uses their hands and fingers to manipulate muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and connective tissue to help relieve stress and improve blood flow throughout the body. At Freedom Physical Therapy we believe that identifying the source of pain and treating the underlying issue is key to effective treatment.
Common benefits of massage include stress reduction, decreased tension in the body, acute and chronic pain reduction, and a reduction in heart rate and blood pressure. Massage therapy improves blood and lymphatic circulation and provides or restores a sense of well-being.

Deep Relaxation/Swedish Massage
This is a Swedish relaxation massage treatment with the goal to relax the entire body through the use of long strokes with light to medium pressure to the deeper layers of muscles.
This type of massage addresses stress, tension, and mild to moderate muscle discomfort by improving blood circulation and flexibility and decreasing tension. If you are a first-time massage client this is a great massage experience to start with.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is designed to go deeper into the connective tissue, fascia, and deeper muscles with the goal of decreasing tension, decreasing pain, and increasing circulation.
This enhances healing and improves function. This therapy massage uses medium to heavy pressure to accomplish its goals.
Sports massage is an alternative form of massage that focuses on improving athletic performance. This type of massage can be used by a sports massage therapist in conjunction with traditional sports massage techniques to help athletes recover faster after strenuous workouts.
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, is an active therapeutic technique that addresses the nervous systems’ role in alleviating tension and restrictions within the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, fascia, and scar tissue.
RAPID is a manual therapy treatment through massage using movement to quickly relieve tension in the body and muscle spasms. RAPID causes an increased range of motion and decreased amount of pain, in the body.
Hot Stone Massage
A hot stone massage is a form of deep tissue massage used to promote muscle relaxation and relieve tension from the body. The heat from the stones has a soothing, sedative effect that helps relax the body’s muscles.
By relaxing the muscles, the therapist gains access to deeper tissues and fascia and is able to increase circulation in the body. Other benefits of hot stone massage include pain relief from chronic conditions and reduced stress.
Dynamic cupping uses a suction effect from either plastic or silicone cups to separate tissue layers thereby increasing circulation. This can provide a sense of instant relief from muscles that may be consistently hypertonic or tight.
Dynamic cupping can also aid in mobilizing and flushing out toxins that may be stagnant within the muscle and fascia. It can also relieve joint pain and provide a deeper sense of relief.
