|Types of Massage for Ailments, Aches, and Pains.
by James Hunt
The most common type of massage is the relaxation massage that is used to induce an overall sense of relaxation. This relaxing type of massage can also be used to improve the circulation in your body as well as give you some temporary relief from sore muscles.
Another type of massage is called the paramedical massage. This massage deals with the soft tissues in your body that has been injured, many times in a sport's injury. A trained massage therapist will be able to perform techniques on you that will aid in your recovery from soft tissue damage. Many times the recovery time of an injury will be lessened if you are able to combine massage therapy with other treatment.
Another type of massage is known as aromatherapy massage. This type of massage combines a relaxing massage with the use of essential oils, many of which have some healing properties. Aromatherapy is used in many spas around the country as a great way to induce relaxation while at the same time relieving muscles of soreness and stiffness.
Reflexology is yet another form of massage that is very popular. The massage therapist uses his or her fingers to place pressure on certain points of your feet. These points of your feet are in correspondence with certain areas of the body. Reflexology is most often used to attain a sense of balance
Oriental types of massage are also very popular. There are different types of oriental massage, such as shiatsu and acupressure. Both these massage methods focus on the points in the body that are located on the pressure meridians. The goal of oriental massage is to achieve balance and harmony in the body and bring about an overall sense of well being.
