Massage Therapy

We are pleased to offer many types of therapeutic massage in our Alexandria VA center. Massage is a great way to soothe the mind and body while promoting healing and enhancing your immune system.

The best way to reduce your stress and lower your anxiety levels is to relax, which is always easier said than done.

The strokes and pressure your massage therapist applies serves to relax muscles, relieving built-up tension. If you are feeling a bit run down or you are experiencing a mild form of depression, a massage will relax your entire body and give you more energy, freeing your mind and allowing you to release the stress and anxiety in your mind and body.

Reduced stress is a benefit often gained through massage. Stress can be both physical and mental. Stress can physically occur within muscles after injury or overuse causing a buildup of tension resulting in an increase in pain. Stress can occur mentally due to restricted movement, pain or injury. Mental stress is caused by a hormone called cortisol which can also increase anxiety and depression. Where small amounts of stress can be good for a person, too much stress can cause pain, fear and self-doubt.

Research has also indicated that getting a massage can work to lower your blood pressure, ease tension headaches, and help you get a good night’s sleep. The process will also boost your immunity system to prevent sickness and seasonal infections.

Tyra offers therapeutic massage to address soft tissue injury and dysfunction, chronic pain and stress management.
