FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What type of massage is best for relaxation?
Massage therapy is defined as the rubbing and kneading of the body’s muscles and joints especially to relieve tension or pain. Depending on the specific cause of tension or pain, certain treatments are more effective than others. For general overall relaxation, the Swedish massage is most popular. Other modalities utilizing various massage items are becoming increasingly popular including the hot stone massage and aromatherapy massage. For self-care, massage tools such as motorized massage cushions for car seats and chairs, foot rollers, massage balls, and many creams and ointments are affordable and convenient.
What type of massage is best for muscle knots?
Although muscle knots can occur anywhere in the body, they are most commonly found in the neck, shoulders and back. Massage treatments aimed at targeting and relieving pain in specific areas of the body such as Sports Therapy Massage and Deep Tissue Massage are often the modalities of choice.
In some instances self-massage can be equally effective - from gently manipulating the muscle with your own fingers to utilizing one of the many at-home massage accessories on the market such as foam rollers, pain relieving ointments, and deep tissue self-massagers.
Can I give myself a massage?
Absolutely. Many self-massage techniques are extremely effective for relieving minor tension and pain. Try using your fingertips in a circular motion at your temples or along your cheeks and jawline to relieve head and face tension; the palms of your hands to gently apply pressure and push up on your scalp to relieve neck and cranial discomfort or rolling a foam roller or massage ball on your thighs or under your feet. Self-care techniques and cost-effective massage products can be an efficient alternative or interim solution to traditional massage.
What tools do massage therapists use?
Massage therapists who specialize in sports and physical therapy or deep tissue massage should consider adding percussion massagers like the Theragun PRO™ G4 or the G5 TherAssist Massager. Manual options for professional therapists include massage tools like a professional massaging cupping set, the Original Index Knobber for accessing deep tissue or a simple thumb saver to provide support through a long day of treatments. Massage Warehouse offers a variety of manual, electric and percussive massage therapy tools for both self-care and professional applications.
