Massage Therapy Q&A

What health benefits might I gain from massage therapy?

Many patients use massage to relieve stress and help them relax. However, massage therapy has proven therapeutic value and is often recommended by many physicians as part of your integrative treatment for health conditions.

As massage applies pressure and manipulates muscles and soft tissues, it produces biochemical changes that: 

  • Alleviate pain
  • Relax muscles
  • Relieve anxiety
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Reduce your heart rate
  • Improve flexibility and mobility
  • Increase blood and lymph circulation

Massage therapy also boosts your immune system.

When do I need massage therapy?

You can schedule a massage session any time you feel anxious, or your muscles are stiff and aching. Your massage therapist at Body of Beverly Hills Wellness also schedules regular sessions to treat problems such as:

  • Trigger points
  • Back and neck pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Muscle and ligament injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint disorders

Massage therapy stimulates the release of endorphins that relieve pain and neurotransmitters that improve your mood.

What different types of massage might I receive?

The massage therapists at Body of Beverly Hills Wellness are trained and highly experienced in many massage techniques. Your customized plan may include one or more of the following massage therapies:

Deep tissue massage

This type of massage targets deep layers of muscle and fascia, using firm pressure to relieve areas of chronic pain and tightness.

Sports massage

Many techniques are used during a sports massage to improve your performance, prevent injuries, and heal muscles.

Orthopedic massage

Orthopedic massage also uses a variety of techniques to treat painful conditions affecting your muscles and other soft tissues.

Neuromuscular massage

This type of massage improves pain and movement by treating muscle adhesions and problems caused by injuries and repetitive movements.

Facial therapy

Facial massage typically uses a gentle, gliding movement to relax facial muscles, relieve facial pain, and improve skin tone.

Swedish massage

Swedish massage uses a variety of movements, such as kneading and circular pressure, to increase blood flow and reduce stress.

Trigger point massage

A trigger point massage applies concentrated pressure on a knotted muscle.

What is a hot stone massage?

The massage therapists at Body of Beverly Hills Wellness also offer hot stone massage. The hot stones relax muscles and help treat pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.

During your hot stone massage, your therapist may use jade, amethyst, or tourmaline stones, choosing the type of stone for its unique healing ability.
