As we have discussed at length before, there are a lot of aspects of the modern world that can be rough on your back. In our previous blog, we looked at some of the benefits of our office massage service. But office massage is just one of the many services offered by Revelation Chiropractic. If you’re in the Fort Collins area, you can receive different kinds of massage therapy in our office.

In the meantime, let’s take a look at our selection of massage therapy services…

Swedish Massage

You may have heard of Swedish massage therapy before. While it’s a popular term, not many folks are actually privy to what it entails. In short, a Swedish massage is the classic massage that most people picture. Compared to other massage therapy techniques, the Swedish massage doesn’t go particularly deep. It involves long, smooth strokes on the top layers of your muscles.

The Swedish massage will typically use lotions and oils. The focus is on relaxation and rejuvenation. It involves kneading and circular motions that don’t go too deep into your muscle tissue. We recommend this massage for beginners, especially if it’s your first time receiving massage therapy. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for something a little stronger, you might want to check out our…

Deep Tissue Massage

This probably won’t come as too much of a surprise, but the deep tissue massage will go much deeper into your muscle tissue than our Swedish massage will. The deep tissue massage is particularly useful for folks recovering from injuries, as the massage therapy will target areas that are the source of chronic tightness or pain.

Body Insight Method

The Body Insight Method of massage therapy is the least known of the massage therapy techniques mentioned so far. It’s newer on the scene compared to Swedish and deep tissue. It incorporates breathing techniques along with focused pressure and restricted movements. The Body Insight Method is all about re-educating muscles. The technique “unglues” muscles, allowing for maximum flexibility and movement, all while minimizing tension and pain. It is, in short, a massage therapy focused on helping your body find balance.

Prenatal Massage

Receiving massage therapy during pregnancy can offer a range of benefits. Some of the benefits include

  • Relaxation
  • Reduced stress

Reflexology

Reflexology involves the use of pressure with thumbs and forefingers on targeted areas. Reflexology seeks out reflex areas in your hands and feet that correspond to other areas throughout your entire body. We each have a bundle of 7,000 nerves in our feet, with similar bundles of nerves in our hands. Reflexology utilizes the interconnectedness of our bodies to maximize the benefits.
