“As a competitive body builder I get sore muscles more than most. I’m hooked on the massages I get at Salem PT. I have had both the ones that feel relaxing and the trigger point work that “hurts for my own good” and simply won’t go anywhere else! Arlene rocks!
- M White

Massages offered:

SWEDISH MASSAGE 

A massage technique which employs manipulation of muscle and muscular exercise which increases circulation; providing more blood to the muscles and flushes out lactic acid and detoxifies muscles. 

SPORTS MASSAGE 

A deep tissue technique that helps to recover ligament, muscle, and tendon injuries. This technique of slow and controlled movements upon your skin draws fluid through your blood vessels. Stretching, friction of tendons and ligaments, and deep manipulation of muscles, help replenish blood flow to damaged muscle tissue. Sports massage also helps to cleanse tissue from lactic acid and aids the muscle and tissue to absorb additional amounts of oxygen and nutrients.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE 

Deep tissue massage is effective because of its technique – slower, stronger, more focused massage that stimulates deep into muscles. Individuals who expose their muscles to intensive daily conditioning and activity will benefit from this technique. Deep tissue massage will noticeably loosen muscles, alleviate pain, and increase mobility. Sufferers of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, edema, muscle cramping, and even carpal tunnel syndrome may find significant relief from deep tissue massage.

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Prenatal massage has been proven very effective to reduce discomfort and stress during pregnancy, thereby helping to regulate the body's immune system. During pregnancy, the muscles, ligaments and tendons loosen and soften. This causes additional stress on a woman's hips, pelvis and ankles. Prenatal massage assists in alleviating stress in the weight bearing joints and realigns posture and body mechanics.

TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE

Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Muscles are then gently stretched and applied with Swedish massage to complete the relaxation process. This type of massage therapy examines and treats muscles and muscle attachments in layers. It addresses surface muscles and connective tissues, deeper ligaments, and connective tissues which may offer relief from headaches, neck stiffness, carpal tunnel like symptoms, tennis elbow, bursitis, frozen shoulder, back pain, low back stiffness, sciatica, and even shin splints.
