Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a technique your practitioner uses to place pressure on and manipulate your skin, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. We apply light or deep pressure, depending on your preference and condition of your health, to problem areas.

Massage is a relaxing experience that offers numerous health and wellness benefits.

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

When choosing massage therapy at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness you reap the following benefits:

  • Chronic pain relief
  • Reduced stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Muscle tension relief
  • Fewer headaches
  • Better sleep
  • Healing of sports-related injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain relief
  • Improvements in digestive disorders
  • Fewer fibromyalgia symptoms
  • Improvements in myofascial pain syndrome

In addition to the medical benefits associated with massage therapy, it’s a relaxing experience most people enjoy. Your massage therapist customizes each session based on your preference and desired results.

What are different types of massage therapy?

At Thrive Med Spa & Wellness, you have numerous massage therapy options to choose from. Examples include:

Couples massage

To promote relaxation and spend much-needed time with your partner, the practitioners at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness offer couples massages that last 55 or 80 minutes.

Deep tissue massage

During deep tissue massage, your massage therapist applies greater pressure to deep muscle tissue layers and focuses on problem areas that contribute to muscle tension and chronic pain.

Swedish massage

Swedish massage consists of gentle manipulation that improves immunity, lymph flow, and “feel good” endorphins. Your therapist relieves tense muscles and tightness using longer strokes, circular movements, vibration, tapping, or kneading.

Sports massage

If you’re an athlete, a sports massage at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness combines sports-specific massage with stretching to enhance your performance or help you heal from injuries. Your therapist might use a naturopathic cream to relieve soreness and maximize post-training recovery.

If you’re an athlete, you may even consider having a Recovery & Performance IV around the time of your massage to further improve results (free consult required prior to any IV treatments).

Hot stone massage

Your practitioner uses hot stones during massage sessions to warm and soothe muscles and help you relax.

Prenatal massage

Massage therapists at Thrive Med Spa & Wellnessspecialize in prenatal massage to safely and effectively rejuvenate your body and provide relief during pregnancy.

CBD-arnica deep relief

During a CBD-arnica massage, your therapist first soaks your feet in magnesium chloride and essential oils to pre-treat and relax the muscles, allowing them to uptake the CBD and Arnica oil more effectively during the massage. We offer a 55- or 80-minute massage using organic CBD oil to relieve sore, achy muscles and joint pains.

Your practitioner offers numerous body scrubs and mud wraps you can add to massage treatments to enhance your experience.
