Massage Therapy

“Studies continue to prove medical, physical and emotional benefits of massage therapy even in one session.”

Swedish Massage

The Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage in the West, and the foundation for sports massage, deep tissue massage, aromatherapy massage, and other popular Western-style massages. It focus on Asian massage systems—therapists utilize this type of massage to stimulate circulation, flush the circulatory system, release tight muscles, restore range of motion, and to relieve pain.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage much similar to Swedish massage. It is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. The pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension.


Acupressure massage is an ancient remedy of Chinese traditional medicine known to relieve pain in specific areas of the body. Acupressure is often the choice for people who prefer a natural form of pain relief instead of using medication. The goal of acupressure massage is to bring relief from pain without the use of medications.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a type of massage technique that focuses on treating soft tissue aches, pain and injuries that are associated with recreational activities. Massage can reduce muscle stiffness and improve relaxation by reducing heart rate and blood pressure.

Body Massage

Massage has great restorative power for tired muscles and tissues. It is especially useful for those who are active and/or feeling stressed or sore. It brings better oxygenated blood flow to tissues which helps repair. It involves myofascial stretching with vertebral traction which improves movement and posture while relieving pain and spasm, better muscle flexibility and range of motion from deep broad pressures and improved capillarization from stretching muscle fibers.

Foot Massage (Free Scrub)

The foot reflexology stimulates your pressure points by applying pressure on specific areas along the soles of your feet. These pressure points activate reflex actions that help restore your body’s natural state of balance.

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage. But this is not always the case.

There are several different types of therapeutic massage in addition to deep tissue massage, such as:
● neuromuscular massage
● myofascial massage
● trigger point therapy
● sports massage

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular massage therapy (NMT), also known as trigger point myotherapy, utilizes regional protocols to completely assess the body in a step-by-step manner. Taking its roots from science, neuromuscular therapy focuses on the underlying causes that may be directly influencing pain in a certain region. NMT is a treatment that integrates seamlessly with other practices like chiropractic care or mainstream medicine, and it is often directly correlated with physical therapy.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is more than pampering “me” time. Studies continue to prove medical, physical and emotional benefits of massage therapy even in one session. Thankfully, you can get many kind of treatments, like a head and neck massage in Dr Kim Health Care, at your convenience. Below are some benefits of the massage therapy we offer:

Relieves Stress

Stress relief is key to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Even a single massage session can significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels, all of which help reduce daily stress.

Encourages Relaxation

Relax. Reset. Repeat. Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest and recovery mode: an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.

Improves Posture

Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can be relaxing to correct. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.

Improves Circulation

The pressure created by massage therapy moves blood through congested areas. This causes new blood to flow in, resulting improved body function.

Lower Blood Pressure

High blood pressure has more misconceptions than nearly any other medical condition. But one effective way to stave off high blood pressure naturally is massage therapy.

Relaxes Muscles

Got neck, back or muscle pain? Odds are, sitting all day at the office is the culprit. Massage gets to the root of persistent pain by relaxing tense muscles.

Relives Headaches

45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. Massage helps ease the pressure and pain, which can also reduce the chance and frequency of headaches.

Promotes Deeper And Easier Breathing

One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in reliving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.

Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion

As we age, joints tend to tighten, making range of motion more restricted. Massage helps keep joints more fluid, making you more flexible and less prone to injury.

Strengthens The Immune System

Studies indicate that regular massage can naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity–the activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”.

Enhances Post-Operative Rehabilitation

Massage helps the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs. This makes massage therapy a great supplement to post-operative rehabilitation.

Improves Rehabilitation After Injury

Rehabilitation can be frustrating. A continual massage program can accelerate the recovery process, as well as help you relax and stay motivated.
