Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can help alleviate emotional stress, tension and pain. During a massage, the therapist focuses on musculature, increasing blood flow and relieving stress throughout the body.

Massage can play an important role in your wellness program. Stillwater Medical Group provides professional massage services in a calming and soothing environment. 


Swedish Massage 
Classic Swedish massage technique involves gentle manipulation using strokes such as gliding, kneading, stretching and tapping to promote circulation, relaxation, stress reduction, and general wellbeing.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue technique incorporates more focused, penetrating strokes such as compression and cross fiber friction to facilitate the release of specific muscles that are taut or knotted. These techniques are often combined in a full body massage.

Acupressure is an ancient Chinese technique based on the principles of acupuncture, and involves the use of finger pressure (without the needles) on specific points along the body.

Acupressure is a way of accessing and releasing blocked or congested energy centers in the body. Acupressure massage therapy stimulates and activates the body’s own energies to help fight illness and restore harmony. Acupressure can help alleviate ailments such as tension, stress, aches and pains, arthritis or menstrual cramps. Acupressure can also be used for general preventative health care.

Reflexology targets hands and feet to help release stress over different regions of the body. Enjoy relaxing and healing benefits of the ancient therapy of Foot Reflexology. The zones and reflexes on the feet that correspond to specific areas in the body are massaged using thumb and finger pressure to your feet, removing blocked energy in the body to restore balance.

Healing Touch
Healing touch is a specific type of touch therapy that has been shown to reduce stress and help with pain management.

Healing touch therapy uses a gentle hand motion either on or above the skin to smooth the body’s energy field. This therapy creates a relaxed environment. In addition to pain management, the relaxation and stress relief brought about by healing and touch therapy may stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Reiki is a healing energy channeled through the Reiki practitioner's hands. Reiki is a technique used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki translates to “life force energy.” This light touch therapy is gentle and non-invasive. It stimulates the body’s own innate wisdom to heal through promoting a balancing of the body, mind and spirit.

Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release is a highly specialized stretching technique used by therapists to treat soft tissue problems. Each Myofascial Release technique contains the same components. The therapist finds the area of tightness. A light stretch is applied to the tight area. The therapist waits for the tissue to relax and then increases the stretch. The process is repeated until the area is fully relaxed. Then, the next area is stretched. This is a gentle and very relaxing treatment.

Sports Massage
This special form of massage is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. It helps to prepare athletes for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. This type of massage helps to heal muscle strains and maintain athletic performance.

Pre- and Post-Natal Massage
Many women say that massage helps them relax and focus their energy on recuperating. During pregnancy and following the birth of a child the mother's body needs special care. Massage therapy can help mothers adjust to the changes that occur during pregnancy and relieve some of the discomfort they may experience, such as low back pain and edema. The relaxing effects of massage therapy are very useful in preparation for labor and delivery, and following birth.
