What Is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is an increasingly popular and effective form of health care. It has been widely prescribed by healthcare providers in recent years, as a way to help their patients alleviate stress and chronic pain. 

Massage therapy is often used to relax muscles, reduce tightness and improve blood flow.

At Turning Point Physical Therapy in Edmonton, we offer massage therapy services to help our patients achieve their health and wellness goals. Let’s explore the benefits of massage therapy and how it can benefit you.

The Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps to relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and improve circulation. 

Regular massage sessions can also reduce inflammation, improve posture, increase flexibility, and reduce fatigue. Massage therapy has also been shown to improve mood and mental clarity.

Additionally, massage can be used as a preventative measure against injury or illness.

With regular sessions, your body will become more resilient against potential injuries or illnesses by promoting natural healing processes.

Now we will discuss seven common benefits of massage therapy so you can decide if it's right for you.

Boosts Immunity

Massage therapy reduces stress levels in the body and stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps to improve overall immunity. 

The increased circulation caused by massage also helps clear toxins from the body, aiding in better health overall. Studies have also shown that regular massage can reduce inflammation and even help fight off colds and flu.

Pain Relief

Massage therapy is incredibly effective at relieving pain caused by muscle tension or overuse injuries.

During a session, your massage therapist will use techniques such as kneading, stretching, and deep tissue manipulation to target areas of discomfort.

This can help release tightness in the muscles and provide relief from pain quickly and effectively. 

Improves Sleep Quality

A good night's sleep is essential for our mental and physical well-being, yet so many of us struggle with insomnia or poor-quality sleep.

Massage therapy can help relax the body and mind before bedtime, which makes it easier to drift off into peaceful slumber.

It also helps reduce stress hormones in the body which can lead to improved sleep quality over time.

Improved Circulation 

Massage improves blood circulation throughout the body, bringing oxygenated blood to all major organs as well as extremities like hands and feet.

This helps improve overall energy levels while providing nourishment to cells, tissues, and muscles; ultimately making them stronger against damage caused by everyday activities like exercise or sitting at a desk all day long.

Improved Flexibility

Over time our muscles become stiff due to age-related issues or lack of movement leading to reduced flexibility. 

Massage not only relaxes tight muscles but also increases elasticity allowing them to move more freely without any limitations or restrictions on the range of motion - perfect for athletes who need maximum performance from their bodies or those looking for an extra edge when exercising.

Reduced Anxiety

Stress is an inevitable part of life, but that doesn’t mean we should let it take over our lives.

Regular massage sessions can significantly reduce anxiety levels due to their calming effect on both mind & body – plus, they’re a great way of taking some much-needed ‘you time’ away from work/family commitments, etc.

Improved Posture

Poor posture often goes unnoticed until it becomes too late, resulting in chronic pain and stiffness caused by misalignment of joints and vertebrae, etc.

Regular massage sessions are an excellent way of keeping our posture in check, massaging tight/stiff areas and gently stretching other areas where necessary – helping us stay aligned and upright with minimal effort.

Types of Massage Services Offered at Turning Point PT

At Turning Point Physical Therapy, we are proud to offer a wide variety of massage services to help our customers relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy life.

From deep tissue massages to sports massages, we have something for everyone. In this section, we’ll provide an overview of the five types of massage services offered at Turning Point PT.

Swedish Massage

This is the most common type of massage therapy and is known for its long, gentle strokes that help reduce stress and promote relaxation. The Swedish massage technique also includes kneading, tapping, and vibration techniques to improve blood circulation and relieve muscle tension.

This type of massage is ideal for those looking for a light-to-moderate massage experience that helps them relax and unwind.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massages use intense pressure to target deeper layers of muscle tissue. These massages are often used to treat chronic pain, sore muscles, or bodily tightness due to injury or illness. 

It’s important to note that deep tissue massages can be painful during the session but can provide relief after it is finished.

Sports Massage

Sports massages are designed specifically for athletes who need help with recovery after intense physical activity or competition.

These massages focus on areas such as the legs, arms, back, neck, and shoulders which are commonly stressed during exercise.

They can also help reduce inflammation in muscles while helping athletes stay loose before an event and recover afterward.

Hot Stone Massage

A hot stone massage uses heated stones placed on various parts of the body (such as the back or feet) to help relax tight muscles while providing soothing warmth throughout your body.

The heat helps increase circulation while relieving both physical and emotional tension from within you. 

This type of massage is especially beneficial if you’re experiencing pain related to stress or anxiety since it helps you relax both mentally and physically while promoting healing within your body naturally through heat application on specific points throughout your body along with traditional hands-on techniques from our experienced therapists here at Turning Point PT.

Prenatal Massage

If you’re expecting, prenatal massage can be very beneficial in helping you manage any discomfort associated with pregnancy, such as morning sickness or back pain.

This type of specialized treatment is designed specifically for pregnant women using light pressure and focusing on relaxing tense muscles while avoiding areas where there may be too much pressure, such as the abdomen area.


Reflexology is a technique used to manipulate specific points located on your feet that correspond directly with other parts of your body, like organs or muscle groups, in order to promote relaxation and healing throughout the entire body without having to focus on any one area specifically.

Through this method, tension can be released from certain areas, which can lead to increased well-being overall.


At Turning Point Physical Therapy, we take pride in offering a variety of massage services tailored specifically for each customer's individual needs, whether it be relaxing Swedish-style massage techniques or deep tissue work intended for more therapeutic purposes such as pain relief or injury rehabilitation.

Our team specializes in providing customized treatment plans that incorporate different types of massages designed to target specific issues, such as muscle tension or lack of flexibility, while still providing overall relaxation benefits, such as improved mood or mental clarity.
