Botanica Custom Massage

As a wonderful, natural therapy that can provide remarkable and often instant results, there is truly no arguing the fact that massage therapy can be highly beneficial to an individual’s overall physical and mental health. A trained, skilled, and experienced massage therapist is able to manipulate the skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the body in such a way as to release tension, improve circulation, and increase relaxation, essentially helping the body to perform its natural functions more easily.

While most massages have in common the rubbing or kneading of the individual’s muscles and joints, they can vary quite widely from one to the next. Depending on an individual’s specific needs and desires, massages can consist of different levels of intensity, from very light stroking to very deep pressure, delivered in a variety of techniques. A few of the more common massage techniques include:

However, there are also times when the individual has very specific needs and desires that are not easily met with any single standard massage. This is when a custom massage may be the best fit.

Customized Massage Therapy

In general, massage therapy has proven useful in addressing a great variety of physical and mental issues, including anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, stress-related insomnia, myofascial pain, soft tissue strains or injuries, sports injuries, temporomandibular joint pain, and much, much more. In many cases, individuals who aren’t suffering from any particular physical or mental issue may yet desire to receive a massage. This is because massages are, by nature, very relaxing and can help an individual disconnect from stress and anxiety, achieve better sleep and generally feel more relaxed.

Standard massages are designed to address very specific areas of the body in order to bring about very specific results. With a customized massage, the therapist will consult with the client to learn about exactly what they hope to achieve through a massage therapy session. By understanding what the client is experiencing, the therapist can incorporate the various techniques that will better address and resolve these issues during that session. This can be especially useful when the client has some specific areas that are troubling them and want the massage session to focus primarily on these areas in order to provide them with relief. Some of the things that a customized massage can address include:
