Massage Therapy involves the manipulation of muscles and joints to promote healing, relaxation and well-being. Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure, tension, motion, or vibration. This is done manually or with mechanical aids.
Target tissues may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
Massage Therapy is especially useful in treating the following conditions:
• Sore muscles and joints
• Discomfort associated with pregnancy
• Stress Relief
• TMJ / Jaw pain
• Headaches and migraines
• Motor Vehicle Accident recovery
• Sports injuries
• Post-surgical rehabilitation
• Respiratory and Circulatory disorders
What To Expect During Massage Therapy
There is no special preparation before undergoing massage therapy – anybody can book a session. Prior to the session, our massage therapist will inquire about your general health and medical history, specific health concerns, allergies, pain points or injuries. You will then be suggested a suitable massage as per your health profile.
All the relevant information related to the massage will be shared with you in detail. The information includes massage type, any equipment used, personnel involved and the advantages.
A typical massage therapy session lasts around 30 to 60 minutes. Clients are given sanitized and fresh loose-fitting clothing. You can choose to lie on a dedicated massage table or a relaxing chair. The massage therapist conducts therapy as per the pain areas in the body and apply suitable pressure. Clients can also choose to include hot oil or lotion in the massage.
During the massage, the client may experience mild pain as the therapist works on the stiff muscles. If the pressure applied by the therapist induces excessive pain, do speak up. Once finished, the client is left alone to relax for a few moments before finishing the session. Once you reach home, we encourage you to take a hot water bath.
At Synergy Health Group, we ensure that you experience the true healing benefits of massage therapy, no matter which massage you choose.

Toxins enter bloodstream due to the present-day stagnant and lethargic lifestyle. Soft tissues are stimulated when a massage therapist performs a thorough deep tissue massage. It releases harmful toxins which are then secreted from blood and lymphatic systems.
