Styles of Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage can be performed in a number of different styles. Your Miami practitioner will discuss your needs and your goals with you to determine the style that will provide you with the best results and the most benefit.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is one of the most popular and recognized styles of therapeutic massage. It’s characterized by long, soft, kneading strokes alternating with light taps on the outer portion of the muscles. The goal of this style is to release the tension that people tend to carry in their muscles. This style is suitable for both treating injuries and relieving stress.

Neuromuscular Therapy Massage

Neuromuscular therapy massage focuses on the trigger points and works to relieve nerve compression and improve circulation. By manipulating the soft tissue in the prescribed manner, your Miami practitioner can treat repetitive nerve injuries and other biomechanical problems.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage uses firmer pressure than Swedish massage and primarily focuses on the areas that are specifically causing you problems for more controlled results. This style is very effective for muscle injuries such as sprains and strains and relieving chronic tension.

Some of the other popular methods of therapeutic massage we use at the Miami offices of Icon Medical Centers include sports massage and pregnancy massage. To learn more about these and other types of therapeutic massage, call our Miami office and schedule a consultation.
