Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage in Long Beach, CA with Hudavi Wellness

Deep tissue massage is the preferred chiropractic massage therapy to treat injuries, chronic pain, and stiff muscles, in addition to providing a full body relaxation. Deep tissue massage targets the soft tissue far beneath the skin to reduce tension and aid recovery.

Hudavi Wellness offers deep tissue massage in Long Beach to help clients dealing with physical health challenges, recovering from accidents, or needing greater relaxation. Our experienced chiropractors provide our deep tissue massage therapy as part of our holistic treatment solutions or for individual healing. Make an appointment for deep tissue massage in Long Beach online or by calling us at 562-433-2177.

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Soft tissues in your body like muscles, ligaments, and fascia - the layer of connective tissue beneath the skin - holds much of the tension in the body. While this can contribute to stiff muscles and pain on its own, it can also be a side effect of many physical health conditions, causing increased pain and limited mobility for people suffering from:

  • Injury
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Pain

In addition to providing relief from muscle pain, deep tissue massage can reduce inflammation and increase blood flow. We also use it to support chiropractic adjustments and other treatment options.

What to Expect from a Deep Tissue Massage

Compared to most other forms of massage therapy, deep tissue is often a more intensive massage. It uses firm pressure when manipulating muscles and other soft tissues, which can at times be uncomfortable, but is effective at loosening tight muscles.

Our chiropractors in Long Beach will discuss your health history and current symptoms, as well as any concerns you have, to provide a massage experience that is right for your needs. A deep massage can be a full body massage or focus solely on problem areas and muscle groups.

The massage will start slowly and gently to warm up your tissues before transitioning to intense deep strokes and kneading of your muscles. Although there may be some minor tenderness in the following days, you should have a long term reduction in muscle pain.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage Therapy in Long Beach at Hudavi Wellness

Hudavi Wellness is a team of chiropractors and massage therapists in Long Beach who use hot stone massage as part of our comprehensive health solutions. Whether you want a day of extreme relaxation, are recovering from an injury, or living with pain, a hot stone massage will improve your mental and physical wellbeing. Schedule your massage with Hudavi Wellness online or contact us at 562-433-2177 to learn more about massage options.

How Our Hot Stone Massage Works

With hot stone massage, we use the relaxing effects of heat alongside the manual manipulation of your muscles and other tissues in the body. Large flat stones made of basalt, a type of volcanic material, provide the gentle heat for this therapy, which we heat in water to a temperature of approximately 140 degrees.

The therapist will place the stones along your spine and other locations around your body. The heat instantly begins to loosen tissues. It also opens blood vessels to increase blood flow, promoting:

  • Promoting fast healing after an injury.
  • Reducing mental and physical tension.
  • Improving sleep.
  • Making your entire body feel more relaxed. 

Although the stones themselves will feel great, one of the main benefits of a hot stone massage is that it makes the muscles looser and easier to manipulate when we begin the physical massage. This means we can easily access deep tissues, but with a lighter touch and in less time than a deep tissue massage. You get the same level of relaxation without the intensity of the deep tissue massage that some clients find to be uncomfortable.

A hot stone massage is also simply luxurious for those seeking the most relaxing way to lessen muscle pain and tightness.

How Prenatal Massage in Long Beach Can Help Expectant Mothers

Prenatal Massage at Hudavi Wellness relies on several different types of massage therapies to provide techniques that are specially suited for mothers in various stages of pregnancy. We will often use techniques from massage therapies like Swedish massage and others, but with a focus on providing the appropriate support and gentle movements to avoid any stress for you or your baby.

With prenatal massage, we apply pressure to the soft tissues and muscle groups. The light pressure releases tension in the muscles and improves blood circulation, offering benefits like:

  • Reducing Swelling 
  • Reducing Lower Back Pain 
  • Decreasing Leg Cramps

  • Fewer Headaches 
  • Reducing Anxiety and Stress

What to Expect with Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage in Long Island is one of the most popular forms of massage. Our gentle techniques and personalized approach mean the majority of our clients will see benefits from this relaxation massage, often without any of the temporary soreness that comes with more intense massages, such as deep tissue massages and Swedish massage.

Instead, we provide a treatment with the goal of total relaxation, using both our experience and your preferences to guide massage therapy. Relaxation massage at Hudavi Wellness will focus on the different large muscle groups in your body that hold tension, including the: 

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Lower Back
  • Arms 
  • Legs 
  • Hands
  • Feet 

We can adjust our approach as needed if you have specific areas that you want to pay attention to or avoid. For each of these areas, we provide the right amount of stimulation, based on your feedback, to loosen and relax the muscles.

Some of the other features of relaxation massage can include relaxing music, low lighting, and aromatherapy to create an environment suitable for meditation and give you the space to relax your mind as well as your body. 

Many of our patients also enjoy the pampering and luxury that a relaxation massage can provide, offering a chance to step back from a busy routine for nurturing and holistic wellness. Relaxation massage is great as both a one time stress reduction treatment or as an ongoing therapy to keep you relaxed and comfortable.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage in Long Beach, CA

Swedish massage is the most common form of massage therapy in Long Beach. It is gentle enough to provide full body relaxation while still getting deep enough into the soft tissues to remove tension and reduce pain, making it a valuable part of holistic health care.

Hudavi Wellness provides chiropractic massage therapy with Swedish massage in Long Beach. Our experienced massage therapists target soft tissues in your back, neck, legs, joints, and other areas that hold tension to provide an experience that will leave you feeling relaxed and healthy. Book a Swedish massage treatment at Hudavi Wellness online.

Swedish Massage Treatments from Hudavi Wellness

In the practice of Swedish massage, a massage therapist uses sweeping motions and gentle kneading to direct pressure to soft tissues in your body, including the skin, muscles, fascia, connective tissue, and blood vessels that hold your bones together. 

Regular activities in your daily routine, including both physical activity and extended periods of reduced movement, as well as stress, can cause these soft tissues to become tight. Manipulating the muscles and loosening them through Swedish massage provides benefits that include:

  • Pain Reduction - Tight muscles can hold bones closely, leading to discomfort. As the muscles relax, bones and joints can move more naturally.
  • Improved Blood Flow - Stimulation of the soft tissues during Swedish massage will increase blood circulation.
  • Better Flexibility - Looser joints and muscles will give you a greater range of motion if you have regular stiffness or are recovering after an injury.
  • Removal of Lymphatic Fluid - Lymphatic fluid builds up in the muscles during periods of low movement and causes pain. Massage simulates movement from exercise and helps drain lymphatic fluid. 
  • Stress Reduction - In addition to the physical benefits, Swedish massage is also helpful in reducing stress and improving your overall mood as a result of the relaxing environment and the release of physical tension.

At Hudavi Wellness, we customize our approach to massage therapy for your needs. You can choose the pressure level you prefer, whether you like low pressure, moderate pressure, or intense pressure. Massage can also be a one time experience to give you the chance to pamper yourself, or you can set up an ongoing appointment to continuously manage muscle tension, chronic pain, or simply increase your overall comfort.

Our Swedish massage is a beneficial treatment to accompany almost any other physical health treatments since it is effective at reducing pain and discomfort as well as loosening soft tissues to promote injury recovery or allow easier chiropractic adjustment.

What is Sports Massage?

Sports massage at Hudavi Wellness is designed for an active lifestyle or for anyone who wants to increase mobility. It draws from both the gentle techniques of Swedish massage and the more intensive methods of deep tissue massage. This combination enables us to get to the muscles and connective tissue that you rely on during sports or performance.

This deep tissue massage is effective at loosening those muscles. Sports massage also often incorporates stretching to help further relax tissues, benefiting athletes through:

  • Improved Performance 
  • Greater Flexibility
  • Less Muscle Pain After Workouts
  • Faster Recovery from Sports Related Injuries
  • Injury Prevention

Based on your needs, we can provide pre-event sports massage and post-event sports massage to either warm up your muscles or cool them down after you have competed.

We tailor each massage to your individual needs, making sports massage from Hudavi Wellness a valuable practice to incorporate into any level of training.
