Which Type of Massage?

I have bi-polar, anxiety, depression, ADHD and PTSD. Also when I was six, so about 14 years ago, I was hit by a car and now I have a bad back. I’m so stressed and irritated all the time lately and it’s effecting the relationship that I have with my amazing boyfriend. When I get my taxes back I’m going to be getting a massage, but I don’t know what type I should get. Based on these three places: Aveda Day Spa, Massage Envy and Healing Touch.
Trigger Point Therapy
Swedish Massage
Deep Tissue Massage
Hot Stone Massage
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Chakra Balancing Massage
Full Body Massage
Relaxation Massage
Which type should I get and which place should I go to???


  1. A homeopathic doctor could cure all of your health issues at the same time by treating the cause. It can heal your mental as well as physical issues at the same time. This is a holistic solution, rather than a simple physical approach with short-lived results.

  2. I don’t think anyone can answer your question. I’ve regularly seen a fine massage therapist for several years. When I see him I tell him what is giving me a problem and he works on that using any number of modalities. He has a knack for finding trigger points that often cause pain sufficient to bring me off the table. I suggest you find the best trained, most experienced therapist you can and let him determine what you need. Since you have back trouble, that seems an obvious starting point. Finally, make sure your therapist has good, strong hands. I’ve been a number of therapists over the years, and almost any one of them could give me a “feel good” massage, many just don’t have the strength to do some of the real work. Finally, while I’m not familiar with the names you mentioned, I much prefer a self-employed therapist. Mine is certified in pain management and regularly teaches and receives additional training.

  3. treat yourself and your boyfriend to a get away weekend, a couple of quality bottles of wine and let nature take its course from there. Massages are for the benefit of the massagor not the massagee.
