Therapeutic Massage – What exactly is it?
Therapeutic Massage vs Deep Tissue
If you think about it, all massage is therapeutic so we believe that the term, Therapeutic massage simply describes any type of massage treatment that will help to reduce pain, reduce stress and work on a specific problem. Therapeutic massage does not always mean there will be deep tissue work.
A good therapist will apply the specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address your need, and sometimes that’s a lighter touch.
A therapeutic massage means that the client will present to the therapist with a specific complaint, for instance, pain in your hip, tight shoulders, or a spasm in your lower back (or even all three). Your therapist will customize your therapeutic massage based on what your specific needs are at the time of treatment.
