When a licensed, skilled massage therapist starts manipulating your muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and other soft tissues, you’ll wonder how you’ve lived without a daily massage so far! The benefits that professional massage can bring to your life include:
Our expert massage therapists will tailor your experience to your specific preferences and needs, using plush fabrics, aromatherapy, warm temperature, and appropriate ambient lighting to make your massage session as comfortable as possible. By gathering information upfront, including information from a referring physician if being seen for a medical condition, we can provide you with a massage that alleviates your symptoms, helps restore your functioning, and boosts your overall quality of life.
Please always feel free to bring up any issues or concerns with the massage therapist, whether it be before or during the massage.
Swedish massage is the most popular and widely known type of massage. Known for its long, smooth strokes and moderate pressure, Swedish massage aims to bring unity to the body and direct blood flow back toward the heart.
For expectant moms in the second or third trimester, a prenatal massage is a great way to relieve the extra tension and stress caused by carrying around that extra weight. With full comfort measures in place including table modifications, pillows and cushions, and baby-safe positioning, you’ll appreciate the last few moments of rest before the baby arrives.
Don’t let muscle or soft tissue injuries keep you in pain. Deep tissue massage is extremely therapeutic for restoring muscle function, breaking up scar tissue, and working out adhesions. Using deep pressure and short, slow strokes, our massage therapists will work out the knots and give you some much-needed relief.
The older population often gets left out of massage clinic services, but here at Florida Wellness Medical Center in St. Petersburg, we know how much a targeted, yet gentle massage can benefit the elderly. By taking their special needs into consideration, our therapists can increase mobility, promote circulation, and improve their quality of life.
Sports take an extreme physical toll on an athlete’s body. Physical exertion can cause small tears and injuries that lead to scar tissue buildup, affecting performance and recovery time. Massage is a great tool to treat these injuries, restore muscle functioning, and promote quick recovery.
Trigger points are knots in the muscle fibers that are painful on contact and can also refer pain to other places in the body. These knots create tension in the muscles by shortening the fibers, impairing mobility that can lead to permanent damage. Our massage therapists know how to identify trigger points, find their source, and break them down with intense pressure. We recommend a series of treatments for long-term results.
