Massage Therapy Q&A
Why should I start massage therapy?
Massage is a powerful healing therapy that can help enhance your health and well-being. Whether you’re injured, stressed, or in pain, a massage therapy session may be the solution you need to get back on track. Dr. Bowser may recommend massage therapy for any of the following reasons:
- Sports recovery
- Injury rehabilitation
- Strains or sprains
Massage therapy can also help pregnant women get relief from lower back pain, hip pain, and overall soreness that occurs throughout pregnancy.
Can massage therapy offer preventive health benefits?
One of the lesser-known benefits of massage therapy is the preventive health aspects associated with this form of hands-on treatment. That’s why so many athletes and performers use professional massage therapists.
Massage helps your body relax and renew itself. It can soothe tired or overstressed muscles and improve circulation and lymphatic function. Certain massage techniques can even boost your immune system, improve joint stiffness, and enhance overall joint function.
Regular massage therapy can also do wonders for relieving stress, improving sleep, and reducing chronic pain. Many people prefer this approach because it offers measurable results without pharmaceuticals or surgical interventions.

Which type of massage therapy do I need?
North Bay Spine and Rehab provides many types of therapeutic massage solutions to help with any ailment you may have. Some of the most popular types of massage include:
This technique uses long, gentle strokes without excess pressure. Swedish massage is soothing and therapeutic.
This technique uses deeper pressure and targets fatigued muscles. It is a great way to treat injuries and improve performance.
Deep tissue massage
