Almost all of us recognise the holistic health benefits of massage that many people experience including:
- Physical and emotional relaxation
- Improved circulation
- Greater flexibility and range of motion
- Improved sense of wellbeing
- Aids in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions such as arthritis
- Relieves aches and pains, and muscle tension
However, there are a lot of different massage techniques to choose from, so how do you decide which one is likely to help you? To keep it simple, today we are going to focus on four main massage treatments.
A gentle hands-on massage technique that promotes relaxation and stress relief, reduces anxiety and improves energy levels. It’s the perfect way to wind down after a hectic week.
Deep Tissue Massage
Is ideal if you have an area of chronic pain restricting mobility. This massage method requires a greater focus on the deeper layers of your muscles and connective tissues. For example, if you are recuperating from a sporting event DTM can help to release chronic muscle tension providing less restriction in the joints, thus improving movement and function.
Supports the body’s innate capacity to heal. It uses a combination of different techniques such as trigger points, myofascial release and lymphatic drainage to treat damaged or sore muscles, neck, back or joint pain, headaches and sports injuries to name a few.

In addition to the above treatments, our Remedial Massage Therapists and Chiropractors at Empowering Wellness Burleigh use Acupressure, a traditional East Asian healing technique, to relieve pain and promote relaxation. This therapy stimulates acupuncture points along the meridians using fingers instead of acupuncture needles. The aim of Acupressure is to improve blood circulation throughout the body by release muscle knots formed from long-term muscle contraction, spasm, or ongoing inflammation. It’s particularly great for relieving musculoskeletal pain, sinus problems and headaches.
In conclusion, a relaxing massage may make you feel good temporarily, however is unlikely to solve the root cause of muscle imbalance resulting in pain and discomfort. Our team of professionally trained therapists are passionate about encouraging your body’s capacity to self-heal and help it function the way it is designed.
