At The Spine Institute of NJ, we utilize two primary types of Massage Therapy. One is General Massage that focuses on general relaxation and stress relief from our every day lives. This may include deep tissue or Swedish Massage Techniques which allow for a Lighter or deeper type pressure. The other is Medical Massage Therapy which focuses on a specific area of concern on a patient's body. This is typically done to relieve pain, decrease inflammation, and tension and improve the function of those areas. This type of treatment is often utilized in conjunction with other types of Musculoskeletal treatments and under the doctor’s recommendation.
