Your Needs Determine the Pressure
Elements Massage Peoria Jan 28, 2014
Therapeutic massage is medically proven to improve mental as well as physical health. Clients who receive regular massages experience reduced stress levels which can help with depression and anxiety as well as bolstering mood overall. The muscle work also improves circulation and range of motion, which can decrease physical discomfort and improve flexibility. But these are just general statements. Massage is a much more individualized experience than many of these facts and figures indicate, and personalization often starts with determining the right pressure for your massage.
At Elements Therapeutic Massage Peoria, the individual needs of each client are of utmost importance, and our massage therapists want to make sure that you get the most out of each session. This means determining which level of pressure best suits your needs. The four levels of pressure used by Elements massage therapists are as follows:
- Level 1: gives a light and relaxing massage
- Level 2: gives a medium pressure massage with no specific trigger point (commonly called knots) treatment
- Level 3: gives a medium to deep pressure massage including some trigger point work
- Level 4: very deep massage including trigger point (knots) work
Depending on your desired outcome – relaxation or something a little more intense – our therapists apply the right pressure to meet those needs. At Elements Massage Peoria, our therapists work with you in order to create the best possible health outcomes and benefits. Call today and make your appointment! 623-748-5969.
