Types of Therapeutic Massage That We Offer
All therapeutic massage techniques are not the same, and each type of massage serves a particular purpose. The benefits of each type of massage are numerous, but not every patient will receive the same benefits, since their individual situations will be different. Our Bethesda location offers sports massage, oncology massage, deep tissue massage, therapeutic massages, neuromuscular massage, and Myofascial Release. Massage therapy incorporates various techniques and bodywork to nurture the body, mind, and spirit of all patients. Even patients who don’t have any existing health problems find that they feel better within themselves after they receive therapeutic massage treatments at our office. Patients report that they have decreased anxiety, they feel more relaxed, and they feel less pain if they are suffering from any type of illness or disability. Contact our office today to discover the numerous health benefits that massage therapy can offer.
