Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a manual therapy that manipulates the soft tissues and decreases muscle tension, pain, stress and depression.

Massage has been practiced for thousands of years. You may have noticed that different massage styles are popular at different times. Today, if you need or want a massage, you can choose from among different styles with a wide variety of pressures, movements, and techniques. These all involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. And you may have wondered whether each was just part of a passing fad or the latest.

In St Hermina physical Therapy, we are specialized in therapeutic massage where we use deep pressure and friction to help release tightness and spasm, depending on your age, condition, or any special needs or goals you have.

Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage. But this is not always the case. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating.
