Therapeutic Massage for Full-Body Wellness
Therapeutic massage utilizes various techniques, including myofascial and trigger point massage therapies. The goal of these therapies is to restore the body to proper function and improve the overall health and well-being of the patient.
Therapeutic Massage for Rehabilitation
Pain, stiffness, discomfort, limited range of motion, and posture can all be addressed in part through targeted massage techniques. Therapeutic massage also provides amplified benefits when used in conjunction with rehabilitative exercise, strengthening, and conditioning.
A study on athletes with injuries showed that patients who received massage as part of their rehabilitative therapy were able to perform more exercise with less pain when compared to those who did not receive massages. Our goal is to help our athletes and all our patients prevent injuries, recover from past injuries, and get back to doing what they love.
The American Massage Therapy Association observes that post-surgery patients receiving massages experienced decreased postoperative pain, decreased stress and anxiety, reduced inflammation, and a greater range of motion. Patients also were able to reduce their intake of analgesics and also noted more-frequent feelings of calmness and well-being.
Overall, massage therapy can amplify the benefits of other rehabilitative therapies,
while providing a range of benefits all on its own.

Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point massage therapies target myofascial tissues that have become tight, rigid, or inflamed. This painful condition is often referred to as muscle knots, inflicted by an injury or overuse. Myofascial problems can create trigger points that reduce the range of motion and can cause neck pain, back pain, muscle spasms, and other types of pain.
Trigger point therapy can help treat myofascial pain syndrome, which is frequently a side effect of car accident whiplash, bad posture, or post-op surgery.
What Are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
Message therapy can reduce anxiety, insomnia, upper and lower back pain, and neck pain, help heal muscle strains or injuries, and alleviate joint and nerve pain, headaches, and even digestive disorders. Additionally, patients may also see benefits in the following:
- Hasten the healing process after surgery and reduce the appearance of scar tissue.
- Increase flexibility in muscles while loosening bound fascia.
- Calms the nervous system by stimulating and soothing nerves, thus facilitating relaxation. This may lead to help with handling anxiety.
- Reduces blood pressure temporarily by slowing your heart rate and calming your nervous system.
- Relaxing massages lower the production of the stress hormone called cortisol. Research shows that high cortisol levels can result in increased oil production, which can clog pores and cause acne breakouts. In addition, prolonged high cortisol levels can lead to more complicated medical issues over time.
Enjoy the Massage Experience
Our Buford massage therapists will ask patients about any areas of discomfort prior to starting a session. Patients are encouraged to talk to our therapists and advise where there are sensitive areas in a muscle. Our massage therapists will move towards another area or change their approach toward the problematic muscle area.
Why Massage Works
The word “massage” has become a common metaphor for delicately working on something to improve it somehow. Therapeutic body massage has earned this reputation for its ability to directly target muscle soreness, stiffness, pain, and atrophy through direct touch.
Many therapies seek to indirectly address problems with muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Exercise and stretching are all important for strengthening and conditioning these vital parts of our bodies. Whether you are an athlete, enjoy physical hobbies, or have a less-active lifestyle, using your muscles and maintaining flexibility is vital for your health and wellness. Without regular attention to these areas, we can develop atrophy, limited range of motion, pain, and even injury.
Unlike exercise and stretching, massage involves a firm but gentle touch to the most common sites of bodily discomfort and pain. By stimulating the muscles directly, they can be warmed, relaxed, and invigorated to function more capably. This effect is why massage is so commonly used by professional athletes after bouts of strenuous physical performance.
As a bonus, massage simply feels great! The pleasant feelings experienced during and after a massage have been shown to have mental health benefits, including reduced stress and anxiety while improving overall outlook. These benefits make massage extremely effective on its own and an even better addition to other therapeutic regimens.
