Massage Therapy Q&A

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is a hands-on approach that relieves pain and tension in your musculoskeletal system — muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, nerves, etc. When your massage therapist manipulates your hard and soft tissues, it increases blood flow to injured or damaged areas. This process allows tense muscles to relax and promotes healing. 

With extensive training in massage therapy, Sharlene can recommend the appropriate technique for your ailment.

Are there different types of massage therapy?

Sharlene practices multiple types of massage therapy at Open Door Wellness Center, including:

Neural reset therapy

Neural reset therapy is a unique type of massage that involves placing pressure on certain nerves to disrupt pain signals. Rather than manipulating painful tissues, neural reset therapy targets the nerves that control pain. The technique is fast and efficient. 

Many patients experience pain relief within minutes. Unlike other forms of therapy, you can remain fully clothed during your treatment.

Deep tissue massage

A deep tissue massage targets your muscles and connective tissues with controlled pressure. This type of massage is ideal for those with painful tissue injuries, particularly sports injuries and accidents. A deep tissue massage can help break up scar tissue and accelerate healing if you suffer from chronic musculoskeletal pain.

Swedish massage

A Swedish massage is a common technique that promotes comfort and relaxation. This type of massage can release tension in stiff muscles, reduce stress, and improve your blood circulation. 

After an initial evaluation, Sharlene recommends the best massage for your type of pain or tension.

What can I expect from massage therapy?

When you arrive at Open Door Wellness Center, you meet with Sharlene. She asks detailed questions about any pain, tension, or discomfort you experience. She may also ask about your lifestyle to determine the best massage for you.

Depending on the type you choose, you may lie down on the massage table or sit while Sharlene performs your massage. Most massages last for 30, 45, 60, or 90 minutes.
