What’s the ultimate indulgence, Jacksonville? Massage therapy at Reviva Medical Spa! We offer an array of luxurious massages and specialty treatments designed to help you relax and rejuvenate. But it’s not all about the R&R, Jacksonville. Massage can help cleanse your body of toxic buildup, improve blood circulation and release muscle tension – all important factors for an active body, healthy stress level and glowing skin.
What’s the most popular way to get a little R&R, Jacksonville? Swedish massage is the most requested massage service at Reviva Medical Spa. It involves a combination of five basic strokes and concentrates on the muscles and connective tissues of the body for improved circulation, relaxation, pain relief and overall health maintenance and well-being. Swedish massage is also one of the less demanding techniques for massage therapists to practice as it usually does not involve deep-tissue work.
Jacksonville-area athletes swear by regular sports massages. A sports massage is a variation of the Swedish massage designed to stimulate circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids and to release lactic buildup in the muscles. Your massage therapist will use trigger point therapy to break down adhesions (better known as knots in the muscle) and increase your range of motion. This helps prevent injuries on the field, the court, the greens, the dance floor – wherever you compete.
Deep Tissue Massage
Is a high-stress job or hectic schedule leaving you with persistent muscle tension, Jacksonville? Deep tissue massage is your answer to a relaxed, rejuvenated state of mind and body. Deep-tissue massage utilizes slow strokes, direct pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles with the fingers, thumbs or elbows. This type of massage works deeply into the muscles and connective tissue to reach the underlying fascia and release chronic aches and pains. You may have heard that a deep-tissue massage can cause injury to the muscles. Reviva Medical Spa’s massage practitioners have a thorough understanding of the human body and are specially trained to perform deep tissue massages.
At Reviva Medical Spa near Jacksonville, massage therapy is our specialty. Here, we answer our client’s most frequently asked questions.
What is a massage?
Jacksonville massage specialists offer multiple types of massages designed to achieve specific muscle and skincare results. But all types of massage involve applying pressure or vibration to the body via rubbing, kneading, patting, etc. This helps improve circulation by delivering oxygen and other nutrients to the body tissues. Massage also relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other body toxins to help reduce pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. And of course, massage helps one relax, de-stress and reboot, so to speak. Reviva Medical Spa’s Jacksonville massage therapists are highly trained in massage techniques that help relieve inflammation, stress, injury, circulation and post surgical lymphatic drainage.
What should I expect during my massage?
Jacksonville’s Reviva Medical Spa is the area’s top massage destination. That’s because we’ve taken all the apprehension out of the massage experience. Before your massage begins, you’ll be given full privacy as you undress to your comfort level. Our experienced Jacksonville massage therapist will knock on the door before entering to make sure you’re ready, then adjust the face rest, pillows and draping to make sure you are completely comfortable. Next, you’ll discuss your symptoms, medical history and lifestyle to help your therapist understand how your body is reacting to stress, tension or injury. During your massage, you will be covered at all times, with only the area on which your therapist is working exposed. After your massage, you will again be given full privacy to redress or slip into your robe for an added specialty treatment. Please be careful getting off the massage table as you may be slightly dizzy.
What are the benefits of Massage?
It’s about much more than relaxation, Jacksonville. Massage has many health benefits. An expertly performed massage can help:
- Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
- Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
- Ease medication dependence.
- Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow-the body’s natural defense system.
- Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
- Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
- Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ-the skin.
- Increase joint flexibility.
- Lessen depression and anxiety.
- Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
- Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
- Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
- Reduce spasms and cramping.
- Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
- Release endorphins-amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
- Relieve migraine pain.
How will I feel after my massage?
When performed correctly, a massage can be a very effective healing treatment. Long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity will lessen significantly or disappear completely and you’ll likely experience increased energy, heightened awareness and greater productivity for days after your massage. Since massage therapy releases toxins from your soft tissues, we recommend drinking plenty of water to help cleanse them from your body.
How often can I receive a Massage?
For lasting results, Jacksonville massage therapists recommend monthly or twice monthly appointments. Athletes, dancers and those with physically or mentally demanding jobs that cause muscle tension may require more frequent massage sessions. This is why discussing your lifestyle and your body’s reactions is so important.
