Anoka Massage & Pain Therapy
Massage has been used for centuries as an ancient healing modality to reduce pain and stress. Not only does it reduce headaches, muscle tension, and boost the immune system’s performance; but it can also be used to combat depression and anxiety.
Anoka Massage & Pain Therapy’s practitioners possess extensive training and are dedicated to using therapeutic techniques that are safe for their clients. They understand that each individual has unique needs, which can be addressed through a customized treatment plan.
Anma and Shiatsu are two forms of Asian massage that originated in Japan and draw upon Chinese medical practices. Both aim to release toxins, reduce pain and increase blood flow to organs. Anma and Shiatsu often combine with other physical therapies as well as traditional medicine in treating patients.
In order to properly administer Anma or Shiatsu massage, the practitioner must be able to make precise and deliberate movements. This necessitates hands trained specifically on tsubo, or key points on the body. Depending on the client’s condition, Anma or Shiatsu could range in depth from light pressure up through deep tissue manipulation.
Our TMJ Therapists possess extensive expertise treating the painful muscles and joints of the jaw and neck. To reduce discomfort and restore function, our TMJ Specialists use soft tissue mobilization, manual therapy, and exercises.

Deep tissue massage is an incredibly effective way of relieving chronic stress areas. This technique works by massaging the deeper layers of muscles and tendons, relieving pain caused by past injuries, tension in the spine, sports-related stress or repetitive motion stress.
