Massage Therapy In Peoria

massage therapy

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods.

The Licensed Massage Therapists at Dr. Hishon’s Peoria, IL office use many types of massage techniques to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellness.

Types of Massage Therapy

While there are several types of massage, two fundamental categories are:

  • Rehabilitative massage – also known as deep tissue, medical, therapeutic or clinical massage; practiced in many settings like clinics, hospitals and chiropractic offices
  • Relaxation massage – also known as Swedish massage; practiced in settings like spas, wellness centers and resorts

Dr. Hishon employs two licensed Massage Therapists in the office, to focus on more deep tissue or rehabilitative massage to “break up” adhesions within the soft tissues that support the spine. Among the many forms of massage therapy techniques available, Dr. Hishon proud to offer A.R.T. (Active Release Techniques) to his patients. This is arguably one of the most advanced disciplines in massage therapy and through extensive training is available to his patients. When problems or injuries are found in the spine itself, soft tissue damage needs to be addressed to allow for complete healing, recovery and minimize scar tissue formation. Relaxation massage is also always available to our patients. This offers calming, relaxing and stress reduction benefits. Relaxation massage usually is done in one hour sessions.
