Massage therapy has been used for centuries to treat physical ailments, but recent research suggests that it also helps relieve stress and anxiety. It can even improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression.
Have you decided it’s time to get a massage, but you aren’t sure which one to choose? Well, the good news is you don’t have to select one. All you have to do is provide feedback to your massage therapist about the area they are working on and the pressure they are using. All our therapists are certified and use several techniques during the same massage. However, if you’d like to narrow it down to specific techniques before you get started, here are some of the most popularly requested massage therapy services at Ravenswood Chiropractic in Chicago.

Swedish massage is a type of bodywork focusing on deep muscle manipulation and stretching. It is performed using light to medium pressure and long strokes. Swedish massage helps to improve circulation and relax tense muscles. This technique is sometimes referred to as a wellness massage and is often used during full-body massage sessions. This technique helps improve flexibility, increase range of motion, relieve tension, and promote overall well-being.
Deep Tissue Massages are often used to treat injuries, relieve pain, reduce stress, improve circulation, increase flexibility, and promote relaxation. The technique involves long, firm strokes along the muscle fibers, which help loosen tight areas and stimulate blood flow.
Sports massage therapy has many benefits for athletes, from serious competitors who need to train harder to weekend warriors who want to relax after a hard day on the field. Therapeutic massages treat not just the source of pain but the patient’s psychological state: when your body feels good physically, you feel better mentally and emotionally. Sports massages are essential to physical conditioning, whether the patient is dealing with an injury or not. But in cases of injury, sports massage can help speed up recovery time as it prepares the body to ward off future injury. Sports massage shouldn’t be used only to respond to sports injuries; it’s part of the athlete’s regular exercise routine.
Prenatal massages are becoming increasingly popular among pregnant women. They relieve back pain, reduce anxiety, improve sleep quality, and promote relaxation. It is believed that prenatal massages may also help prevent premature labor. All our massage therapists have advanced certification in prenatal massage.
Myofascial massage therapy is a form of deep tissue massage that focuses on releasing tight muscles and improving circulation. It is often used to treat chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and lower back pain. The technique involves using light to moderate pressure to break down scar tissue and connective tissue that binds together muscles and joints. This allows the body to move freely and reduces tension.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy massage is a deep tissue massage that focuses on releasing tension and restoring mobility from specific body areas. The therapist will use pressure to remove the knots and adhesions that may be causing the discomfort. This technique helps to improve circulation and relax tense muscles.
