5 Unique Types of Massage Offered By Emerge Tulsa

The word “massage” usually evokes images of candles and hot stones and couples holding hands while their therapist takes them to a place of deep relaxation. 

At Emerge Medical and Well Spa in Tulsa, OK, we offer all of that–but we want our clients to know that the benefits of massage reach far beyond relaxation. 

If you have severe allergies or sinus problems, migraines, tension from pregnancy, or are recovering from recent surgery, we offer a specialized massage to help ease these issues. 

Read on to discover five unique massages offered by Emerge Medical and Well Spa.  

Lymphatic Drain

Lymphatic Drain Massage involves a therapist applying gentle pressure and movement to different parts of your body to help increase the flow of lymphatic Lymphatic fluid can accumulate in the body after surgery or illness and cause swelling.   

This treatment helps remove harmful substances from the tissue and increases immune function, speeding up the healing process. 

It’s an excellent fit for you if:

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is tailored to pregnant women and new mothers. Pregnancy is often accompanied by upper and lower back tension or pain in the hips, legs, or added weight. During this treatment, therapists use a more gentle, Swedish-style technique, avoiding deep tissue methods that could harm a fetus. 

It’s an excellent fit for you if:

  • You are experiencing aches and pains associated with pregnancy
  • You are a new mother looking to relieve the stress of caring for a newborn  

Sinus and Allergy 

During a sinus massage, your therapist will spend 45 minutes combining traditional massage, lymphatic techniques, and light stretching on the face and neck to help drain and open sinus passages. We will also use warm stones, eucalyptus aromatherapy, and steamed towels to soothe and relieve sinus inflammation.

It’s an excellent fit for you if:

  • You suffer from sinus inflammation from seasonal allergies
  • You are prone to sinus infections

Migraine 

Migraines can be excruciating and debilitating. The good news is that massage can help relieve the stress that often serves as a trigger. During our 45-minute migraine massage, your therapist will use a mixture of cold marble stones and peppermint essential oil placed on pressure points in the face and neck to help relieve tension and pressure. Your therapist will also incorporate stretching to relieve tension in your occipital muscles.

It’s an excellent fit for you if:

  • You suffer from frequent or occasional migraines 
  • You experience tension headaches
  • You’re seeking stress relief

Deep Tissue 

One of our most popular options, you can’t go wrong with a deep tissue massage. During a deep tissue massage, your therapist will apply stronger pressure to relieve muscle tension and adhesions. 

It’s an excellent fit for you if:

  • You’re an athlete
  • You experience chronic muscle pain or tension
  • You like firmer pressure during a massage
