Massage Q & A

What is a massage?

Massage, or massage therapy, refers to the rubbing and manipulating of muscles, ligaments, and tissue. When you have a massage, your massage therapist will generally use their hands and fingers to massage you; however, they may use other things such as their elbows or other tools to relieve stress and pain.

What are the benefits of massage?

Massages offer many benefits, including:

  • Reducing your stress level
  • Increasing circulation throughout your body
  • Pain relief for headaches and injuries
  • Relaxing overworked muscles
  • Relieving back pain

Though massage is most often thought of as a way to relieve stress and reduce anxiety, it also offers many medical benefits. Performed on many different areas of your body including the back, shoulders, legs, feet, head, and even hands, massage is an effective way to relieve pain throughout your body.

What are the different types of massages?

There are many different types of massages you can get to target specific problem areas.

Swedish Massage

One of the most common types of massages is a Swedish massage. This type of massage is often used to relieve muscle tension and utilizes kneading techniques and joint movements.

Deep Tissue Massage

Another popular massage option, a Licensed Massage Therapist uses this massage to focus more on specific problem areas, putting pressure on the area all the way to your tissue.

Hot Stone Massage

This unique type of massage involves the use of hot stones that are placed strategically on your body. Not only can these hot stones help relieve muscle tension, they are also quite relaxing.

AromaTouch®

This technique combines the unique benefits of human touch with the power of essential oils to create an overall wellness experience. Each essential oil in the AromaTouch Technique was selected for its individual aromatic properties, and for their aromatic properties when combined. The overall scent of the AromaTouch Technique is soothing, light, and pleasant to the senses.

There are many other types of massages available, and the one that works best for you depends on the reason for your visit. Essential oils and other products are another way to enhance your massage experience at White Diamond Medical Clinic and Spa.

How often should I get a massage?

There is no set number for how often you should get a massage. It truly depends on the reason you’re having a massage, like your specific problem areas and activity level. Be sure to ask at your first appointment how often you should have a massage, and Dr. White and her staff can help determine how often you should seek this treatment.
