Why Massage Strong?
Massage Strong is different from other massage offices. Our massage therapists focus on pain relief, injury therapy, mobility, and other benefits of massage. We aren't a relaxation spa, which is why you won't see any waterfalls in our lobby, and you may not hear music during your session. We aren't here to put you to sleep; we are here to work with your body in a way to promote pain relief, healing, and functional progress. Explore our massage therapy services below.

Deep Tissue Massage
We are known for our deep tissue massages and are proud to be Lexington’s top choice for deep tissue massage therapists. This type of massage is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. It is a more focused type of massage, as the massage therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or 'knots.' Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more heavy-handed.
Cupping massage was made famous by Michael Phelps' circular markings at the 2016 Summer Olympics and has been a popular form of massage therapy ever since. Cupping massage produces fantastic results for those suffering from old injuries or stubborn aches. This type of massage is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a massage therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction; this promotes blood flow and muscle relaxation.
Swedish massage therapy is a calmer form of massage that targets long term pains and aches. This type of massage therapy leaves our patients feeling both energized and relaxed even after their very first session. Swedish massage therapy even releases toxins from soft tissue; this is accomplished by our specially trained massage therapists rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.

Massage therapy alleviates tension and anxiety from mind and body as a holistic exercise. Pregnancy can cause additional stress outside of what we normally experience in our day-to-day lives. Prenatal massages can help reduce that stress with one-hour sessions at least once a week. Massage therapy can help release dopamine and improve serotonin levels, both of which help to decrease symptoms of depression that are experienced during pregnancy. Prenatal massage uses nerve and muscle stimulation to elevate these hormones.
