What techniques are used in a pain relief massage?

A range of safe and effective therapies are used within a pain relief massage, including the following:

heat therapy

Application of Heat

Heating the soft tissue increases in blood flow to the area of warmth, creating elasticity in the tissue. This not only helps the therapist work deeper, but also has a calming and therapeutic effect of easing the pain.

Myofascial Release

Myofascia is the connective tissue found around and through muscles. Healthy fascia is strong and elastic. Myofascial release is a technique used to stimulate elasticity in fascia which has become restricted.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy also works on the fascia. Specifically it targets irritable knots or adhesions known as trigger points. These painful spots ease when gentle pressure is applied to them.
