Many people mistakenly believe that relaxation is the goal of massage therapy. At Healing Touch 4 Therapeutic Colon Cleansing, we like to think of relaxation as a side of effect of all the other physical and mental health benefits. These healing benefits have been known for thousands of years in other cultures, yet it’s only recently that science has started to catch up.

Types of Massage at Healing Touch 4 Therapeutic Colon Cleansing
The best-known type of full-body massage is Swedish massage. One of Healing Touch 4 Therapeutic Colon Cleansing’s professional massage therapists will relax your whole body by kneading the muscles with their hands. Through pre-cision tapping, bending and stretching, this type of massage can increase blood flow, decrease toxin build-up, and boost the immune system.
During pregnancy, the human body goes through a lot of big changes. These changes can produce in-flammation and release stress hormones which disrupt well-being. Not to mention carrying a baby means carrying a lot of extra weight that your body might not be prepared for. A qualified prenatal massage therapist in Longwood can help with many of the discomforts caused by pregnancy. This can enhance the well-being and health of both the mother and the baby.
Due to the health risks involved, it’s important to receive this kind of massage from a specialized pre-natal massage therapist.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massages are perfect for people suffering from chronic pain, old injuries, limited mobility and more. Although some of the techniques might appear similar to Swedish massage, the goals are very different. By applying deep pressure to very specific parts of the body, the massage therapist aims to break up old scar tissue, loosen muscle knots, and free up ligaments.
Hot Stone Massage
Typically combined with either a deep tissue or Swedish massage, the hot stone massage uses warmed-up basalt stones. Their smooth, round contours disperse the heat evenly along your spine. The goal is to relax your muscles and increase blood flow. It’s great for preparing for a full body mas-sage.
The sports massage is a type of deep tissue massage. It focuses on increasing flexibility and range of motion while reducing joint pain and other symptoms of sports-related injuries. The sports massage is also a great choice for those who are looking to be a little more active in their day-to-day lives in Long-wood.
