Nothing is quite as soothing and pain-relieving as massage therapy. It helps to soothe the senses, relax the muscles, and even stimulates the release of endorphins – the body’s natural painkillers.

The Royal Med Spa provides five types of massage therapy in Nebraska City.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage works on the soft tissues and muscles of the entire body, creating a balancing and calming effect upon your entire nervous system.

Swedish massage involves five massage techniques:

  • Kneading
  • Rubbing
  • Stroking and gliding
  • Pounding or tapping
  • Vibration

Therapeutic Massage

This type of massage therapy focuses on the soft tissues of your body, such as muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Some issues that therapeutic massage can help you with include:

  • Migraines
  • Tendinitis
  • Lower back pain
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Sprains and strains (after inflammation is alleviated)

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is used mainly for treating musculoskeletal problems, like sports injuries and strains. It involves the application of sustained pressure using deep, slow strokes.

A 2014 study demonstrated that deep tissue massage alleviated pain in those with chronic, lower back pain. The effects were similar to that of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Some problems that deep tissue massage is helpful for include:

  • Sports-related injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • High blood pressure

Basalt Hot Stone Massage

During this type of massage therapy in Nebraska City, your provider will place flat, heated stones over areas requiring treatment. They are normally made from a type of volcanic rock called basalt, which is known for retaining heat.

Some common areas where basalt hot stones are placed include:

  • Along the spine
  • The chest or stomach
  • The face
  • Feet and toes

Some massage therapists use basalt hot stones together with Swedish massage. Cold stones can even be incorporated to soothe the skin and relax any and enlarged blood vessels.
