For recent onset pain

Massage for Pain Relief

Help for muscular, nerve, fascial, or joint pain.


Have you recently pulled a muscle doing something “stupid?”

Overdone it with exercise or other physical activity? Did you wake up with a crick in your neck? Do you feel tight or sore from time to time and you can’t quite pinpoint it? A targeted therapeutic massage designed to target soft tissue injury can help get you back to better. In other words, a massage for pain relief.

Nimbus Massage therapists routinely work to help people relieve their tension and pain.

  • Athletic training
  • Sprain/strain
  • Daily wear and tear
  • Sleeping funny
  • Back pain
  • Tweaking a muscle with a wrong movement
  • Physical work or hobbies
  • Accident or injury
  • Nerve entrapment

If you have a recent onset or recurring mild to moderate general muscular tension and pain, massage can often make you feel much better. Depending on your individual case a short series of sessions may be optimal. Massage can also help improve pain related to fascial restriction, some types of nerve pain, and certain joint pains.

Generally speaking, your therapist will communicate with you more during a massage to target a specific muscle pain or injury than during a relaxation massage. To work effectively, your therapist may ask you for frequent feedback during the session. Be prepared to have at least some communication during the session, even if you zone out into a relaxation session after working through your problem area.

Although part of the work does involve reproducing pain patterns to relieve them, Nimbus therapists are great at adjusting their pressure to your needs. We go slowly and work within the “good pain” range (using too much pressure can be counterproductive). Each therapist can use light, moderate, or firm pressure.

We recommend a 90 minute massage for pain relief to start. This will give your therapist time to assess and address the issue and any related problem-areas.

If the problem has been ongoing or is more intense, we recommend a rehab package.

Add Therapeutic Hot Stone to enhance your session with the benefits of moist heat.

If something in your routine flares you up on a recurring basis, we recommend a membership.

If your pain has lasted three months or more, check out our info on Massage for Chronic Pain.

If you are in acute pain, please see a medical professional. Wait until the pain has lessened and you have been cleared of serious injury before undergoing a massage session. When not to get a massage.

Some of the techniques your therapist may employ during a Massage for Pain Relief include: Myofascial Release, Stretching, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Connective Tissue Massage, Ortho-Bionomy, Swedish Massage, Sports Massage, and Lymphatic Massage.

A physical job and a couple of accidents have given me some tight muscle areas that get sore from time to time. I think of massage as regular preventative maintenance for my muscles. It knocks out tension and pain and keeps me on the job. – JR
