Kinds of Massage Therapy
Swedish massage is a popular massage used to relax muscles and promote blood flow. It reduces joint and muscle stiffness and helps those recovering from pain to heal more quickly. Swedish massage is often used with patients that suffer from arthritis and joint pain or for athletes recovering from sports injuries. This is one of the most popular therapies used at our chiropractic offices.
Deep tissue massage is used to heal injuries from accidents, chronic pain, limited mobility, accidents, muscle strain, carpal tunnel, and chronic illnesses. It focuses on treating deep tissue layers and muscles. Our team will apply heat or ice packs to relieve the pain after a massage. Often, deep tissue massage is combined with exercise therapy that can be done at home to increase movement and reduce pain. This massage therapy is used to manage pain and increase mobility in more serious chronic illness and injuries.

Deep Tissue Massage for Brentwood and Surrounding Areas
If you've ever had a massage, you may remember it as a gentle experience that focused on the top levels of tissues. This is a technique known as Swedish massage. Although this form of massage therapy offers many benefits, there are some conditions that call for a more aggressive approach. Here at Maryland Farms Chiropractic, we're proud to offer deep tissue massage among our other healing services to help you get over serious chronic pain problems the natural way.
What Is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage lives up to its name. This technique employs firm strokes that manipulate tissues beyond the superficial level, including the fascia, ligaments, and muscles close to the bones. Problems afflicting these tissues can be responsible for some very debilitating conditions. For instance, an old injury that never healed properly may have developed adhesions, collections of internal scar tissue that bind muscles and tendons to each other. Motion in these tissues may be painful at best, and impossible at worst. Deep-set muscle groups can also harbor muscle knots known as trigger points. These knots are painful in and of themselves, but they may also refer pain to distant parts of the body. Muscle knots are especially troublesome for people with chronic pain syndromes.
Deep tissue massage can come to the rescue in these kinds of situations. The forceful manipulation of the deep tissues can "untie" painful muscle knots and release tissues trapped by adhesions. This makes deep tissue massage a commonly prescribed healing technique for conditions such as:
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Neck pain
- Upper or lower back pain
- Chronic muscle tension or stiffness
- Acute injuries
A Healthy Part of Your All-Natural Holistic Treatment Plan
Our Brentwood chiropractor works closely with our licensed massage therapist, Gina Settlemires, to incorporate deep tissue massage into holistic healing plans as needed. One of the great advantages of this combination is the way deep tissue massage can relax chronically tight muscles. As a result, not only do you receive the direct benefits of the massage itself, but you also get more benefit from your chiropractic treatment. Many of the same issues that create muscle spasms and adhesions, such as work accident or auto accident injuries, also leave you with spinal alignment problems. Our treatment method work perfectly together to help you feel and function better.
