Different Types of Massage Offered at Our Chiropractic Center in Teaneck, NJ

Deep Tissue: Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage. However, the pressure is typically deeper and more beneficial to releasing chronic muscle tension. Deep tissue massage focuses on the deepest layers of the muscle tissue, tendons and protective layers surrounding the muscles, bones and joints.

Reflexology: Reflexology is a form of massage where pressure is applied to the hands and feet in order to produce changes in pain and other benefits elsewhere in the body. Applying pressure to these reflex areas removed energy blockages from the body and promotes health.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage: There are different techniques used to perform lymphatic drainage massage but all have the same end goal: to open the lymphatic vessels in order to release excess fluid and allow it to drain back up into the lymph nodes.

Stone Massage: Stone massage is a unique experience that utilizes smooth stones that are heated in order to provide relaxation as well as restoration. Patients who prefer a lighter massage to deep tissue tend to choose restorative hot stone massage therapy.

Relaxation Massage: Although relaxation massage does not provide therapeutic treatment, the benefits the deep relaxation provides are equally beneficial to the body, mind and spirit. Relaxation massage reduces stress and relaxes tense muscles.

Myofascial Release: Myofascial release is a specialized, hands-on therapy that affects the recovery of soft tissue and fascial tension. It also works to release restrictions within these networks, enabling hard and stuck areas to become soft and mobile again.

Sports Massage: Sports massage is a form involves the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a patient who engages in regular physical activity. It is designed to assist in correcting imbalances and any other problems in soft tissue that are caused from trauma or repetitive and strenuous physical activity. This can help to aid in recovery, enhance performance, and prevent future injury.

Swedish massage: Swedish is a traditional massage that consists of kneading, gliding strokes, tapping, and shaking movements. It can be highly effective because of the positive effects it produces on all layers and systems of the body. Swedish massage affects the nerves, muscles, glands and circulation as well as promotes overall health and well-being.

Rehabilitative Massage: Rehabilitative massage is used to reduce pain in patients who have chronic or acute injury. This massage is often performed on the specific area of the body that is experiencing the pain. The goal is to reduce pain, increase range of motion and promote wellness among others.
