Pamper Your Mom with a Therapeutic Massage for Mother’s Day!

She carried you for 9 months. A Therapeutic Massage is the least you can do. 

  • Is your mom constantly running from errand to errand?
  • Are your mom’s hands in continual motion working and caring for your family?
  • Is your mom a road warrior driving between work, appointments and after school activities?

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we thought now would be the perfect time to help you get your Mother’s Day gift ready with something she’ll love…

At PhysioFit, we specialize in Therapeutic Massage, which for many people is synonymous with deep tissue massage. That makes sense because deep tissue massage is the most common of the therapeutic massage modalities—and if you’re looking to give the gift of health and wellness then a Therapeutic Massage is the perfect gift.

Therapeutic Massage vs Deep Tissue

Therapeutic massage 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. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating, but it may not be what you need on a particular day. A good therapist will apply the specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address a specific need, and sometimes that’s a lighter touch.

Types of Therapeutic Massage

In addition to deep tissue, there are several different types of therapeutic massage, including:

  • neuromuscular massage
  • myofascial massage
  • trigger point therapy
  • sports massage

Therapists may use a combination of techniques depending on what the body needs.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage

Most of our clients are interested in deep tissue massage, and that makes sense because it is a great way to manage pain. Deep tissue massage—as well as the other therapeutic massage methods—can provide a lot of relief from chronic pain. Many of our clients come in with frozen shoulder and neck pain—two side effects of working on computers all day.

Let our talented therapists work the kinks out.
