Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

When your muscles don’t receive enough blood flow, you get sore and tender. Massage therapy is the practice of kneading and manipulating your soft tissue to restore range of motion and provoke overall healing. It breaks up lactic acid build-up and improves circulation to restore proper blood flow. 

Many people combine massage therapy with chiropractic care, Ayurvedic wellness, and acupuncture to optimize their health. 

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

There are a multitude of health benefits that come with massage therapy. Some of them are:

  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces stress
  • Improves circulation
  • Enhances range of motion
  • Improves digestion
  • Eases fatigue
  • Enhance sleep quality
  • Improves cardiovascular health
  • Increases relaxation
  • Improves balance

At Vitality Center San Mateo, your provider frequently uses massage therapy to help rehabilitate injuries from sports, accidents, or overuse.

What types of massage are available?

There are several types of massage to address a variety of needs and health concerns. In a quiet, private room, your therapeutic massage lasts between 30 and 90 minutes. Some of the most popular techniques are:

  • Hot stone: releases tension, helps with relaxation
  • Pregnancy: relieves pain or discomfort due to pregnancy
  • Swedish: relieves pain from sports injuries, aids in muscle relaxation
  • Sports: improves flexibility, helps prevent injuries
  • Deep tissue: provides relief for muscle strain and knots
  • Shiatsu: treats arthritis, sciatica, digestive issues, and insomnia
  • Reflexology: treats your feet to promote healing throughout your body
  • Aromatherapy massage: combines Swedish massage with essential oils to speed up relaxation

At Vitality Center San Mateo, your specialist customizes your massage therapy to address your specific needs. 

How many massage therapy appointments do I need?

The number of massage therapy sessions you require depends on your needs, goals, symptoms, and current condition. If you are trying to resolve acute pain, massage therapy might remedy your extreme discomfort with only one appointment. 

If, on the other hand, you’re dealing with a chronic condition like depression or arthritis, it’s likely to take a series of massage therapy sessions to alleviate your symptoms and overcome the problem.
