Massage Therapy Q & A

What is massage therapy?

It’s common knowledge that massages feel good. But you might be surprised to learn that massage therapy with a licensed massage therapist has benefits that extend long after your massage is finished.

For thousands of years, massage has been used to relieve pain, release tension, realign bodies, and help people feel their best. Massage isn’t just an indulgence; it’s a tool you can use to support your overall health.

What are the health benefits of massage therapy?

Massage is used to treat a wide variety of conditions and alleviate their symptoms, including:

  • Back pain

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Headaches

  • Problems with digestion

  • Insomnia

  • Injuries


Many patients report that massages provide mental as well as physical benefits. Massage therapy can be a powerful tool for both physical ailments and mental challenges, from the regular stress of daily life to some mental health disorders.

No matter what issue you’re using massage therapy to help treat, you reap the following benefits from your massage:

  • Reduced stress levels

  • Reduced body tension

  • Improved circulation

  • Improved sleep quality

  • Lower blood pressure

  • Increased range of motion

  • Improved balance

Are all massage therapies the same?

No. There are a number of different types of massage therapies, all designed to produce different results in the body. A Swedish massage, for example, is very relaxing to receive. A deep tissue massage uses more pressure, so it may not be as comfortable, but it’s designed to reach the deep layers of muscle to help your body release tension and pain.

Kayla is experienced at tailoring the type of massage she uses to the patient’s unique needs. Some of the types of massage she offers include:

  • Swedish massage

  • Hot stone massage

  • Deep tissue massage

  • Massage for pregnant women

  • Aromatherapy (including oils that are safe for pregnant women and their babies)

  • Mind/body connection for stress relief


Because she can customize the type of massage to your distinct needs, Kayla is uniquely positioned to use massage therapy to help patients experience relief from their physical and mental challenges.

Massage therapy is a powerful, noninvasive, medication-free treatment that helps your body feel its best. To learn more or schedule an appointment, call Genesis Family Healthcare at 423-753-4000.
