Why Choose Carolina Massage Therapy?
Just as you would with selecting the right doctor, selecting a massage therapist should be no different. You want someone who will meet your specific needs, whether you’re looking to soothe aches and pains of daily life or just after a major sporting event such as a marathon or just to relax.
General certification in Swedish massage—long, sweeping strokes over the entire body—fits the bill when you’re simply looking to relax. (Swedish is what you’ll get if you ask for a basic massage.)
Whereas Deep Pressure or Trigger Point features more targeted finger pressure in specific areas.
There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of how we explain the experience, (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regiment.
