Massage Therapy

The Wellness Center PDX offers massage therapy for those looking to alleviate chronic pain, muscle tension or simply looking to achieve overall relaxation and body wellness. Massage therapy can have a profound positive effect on your health and wellness, from providing drug-free chronic pain management to helping you recover from injuries more quickly and completely.

That’s why our team of massage therapists prescribe it for many of our patients as part of a personalized holistic treatment program.

Most Common Massage Therapy Techniques

Our team at The Wellness Center may prescribe one particular type of massage therapy, or even several types that work synergistically, to address specific physical complaints. The most common types of massages include:

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the light, soothing massage so familiar to clients of day spas. The strokes are intended to stimulate circulation, expel inflammatory substances and relax muscles near the skin surface.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage uses more forceful strokes to manipulate underlying tissues. The deeper pressure releases natural painkilling substances and can even lower blood pressure.

Trigger Point Therapy

This therapy applies direct pressure to muscle knots called trigger points which refer pain to other areas of the body.

Sports Massage

Sports massage concentrates on the muscle groups used in your chosen athletic activity. It can loosen these muscles before an event, relieve pain following an event or help you rehabilitate a sports injury.

Additional Massage Therapy options

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a specialized massage technique used to reduce swelling. It is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from lymphedema, a severe complication of mastectomy and other surgical procedures.

Friction Massage

Friction massage, designed to increase circulation and release tight areas, especially around joints and where muscle or tendon adhesions exist, is beneficial for tendinitis treatment, muscle strains, ligament lesions, and scar healing.
