Utah Massage Therapy

Utah Massage Therapy

Most people are familiar with massage therapy, but did you know that there are many different levels of massage therapy? We recently read an article that stated that “… sending your wife to a spa for the afternoon can make her feel absolutely wonderful.”   As readers may know, Utah County Reviews is on a search for the best massage therapists in Utah! Because we’re not experts in this field, we need your help.

First off, let’s all be aware of the different types of massage.  In addition to the “deep tissue” massage that many are familiar with, massage therapists in Utah are often trained to do shallow massages that don’t hurt as much, localized massages on certain trouble spots, as well as Lymphatic massage, a very light touch massage that is designed to relax surface muscles and stimulate the Lymph system, thus helping the body rid itself of toxins.

One of the products that one Utah Day Spa recommended was a core basic orthopedic water pillow. The pillow is great for proper neck support. The cotton fiber cushion surrounds a removable water chamber that can be adjusted to meet your comfort needs. The water panel prevents water from flowing into the center of the pillow. Instead, the more water you add, the firmer the neck lobe becomes. This water pillow cradles the head in water, while firmly supporting the neck.

If a water pillow just isn’t enough though, what’s is the next best option?

Deep tissue massage is fairly common in Utah, but is it really the best for your needs?

Deep Tissue Massage is designed to reach the deep portions of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibres. Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, its purpose is to realign the fibres and release both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension.
