What is Rehabilitative Massage?

Restorative Rehabilitative massageRehabilitative massage therapy can relieve many types of muscle and joint tightness, from a short term cramp to habitually tight shoulders or a clenched jaw.

Some rehabilitative massage techniques release tension directly by bringing blood and lymph circulation to the muscles and fascia (connective tissue coverings) and stimulating natural lubrication in the joints. This can relieve pain from conditions such as osteoarthritis and overuse. Other indirect techniques work by stimulating the nervous system to tell the muscles to relax.

Furthermore, rehabilitative massage therapy can help relieve aches and pains that develop during limited physical activity, such as injury, surgery, paralysis, or normal aging. It helps improve circulation, both directly and indirectly. It also helps to drain any fluid that may have been retained as a result of injury, surgery, or pregnancy. Lastly, it speeds healing by encouraging the proper formation of scar tissue.
