Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissue in the body including: skin, muscle, connective tissue, ligaments and tendons. When performed by a licensed massage therapist (LMT), massage is extremely safe. Although it is most common for an LMT to use their hands and forearms, there are techniques where they use their elbows and even feet.

There are dozens of massage styles ranging from relaxing to painful. We offer the following at Axis Natural Medicine.

  • Swedish is a gentle massage typically used for relaxation.
  • Deep tissue is a more intense massage typically used for chronic muscle tension.
  • Trigger point uses direct pressure applied to knots until the muscle relaxes.
  • Hot stone uses warm stones placed on the body to loosen tight muscles. Relaxation is a very pleasant side effect of hot stone massage.
  • Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle massage that promotes the flow of lymph to eliminate waste from the body and reduce swelling.
  • Cupping (click for more information).
