Massage Therapy is one of the most ancient forms of Healing dating back thousands of years to Chinese, Egyptian, Greek and Roman cultures that believed in its medicinal benefits. Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch by pressing, rubbing or manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage benefits range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders and injuries to alleviating pain, stress and the tensions of modern lifestyles. Sore (Ischemic) muscles deprived of oxygen and nutrients can often create inflammation and a build up of toxins. Through applied pressure, massage can release those toxins, tension, break up scar tissue, restore proper circulation, ease chronic pain and improve whole body health. Heated beds, hot stones or massage oils are used to enhance the treatments.
Deep Tissue / Swedish Massage / Athletic Recovery / Manual Therapy
Slow, strong strokes work to deeply penetrate sore muscles and connective tissue. Especially beneficial for athletes and people involved in heavy physical and stressful activities, this massage works to loosen muscles, alleviate pain, improve circulation and increase mobility. These therapies can also be used to break up scar tissue by improving lymphatic circulation and drainage to improve flexibility and range of motion in the affected area. A Massage will relax and energize you, which can have a direct effect on reducing your blood pressure.
NeuroMuscular therapy is a focused, concentrated manual therapy based on specific areas of the body where muscle spasms and soreness occur. By locating the spasms or “trigger points”, intense precise pressure can be applied, working to alleviate stress and ischemia, allowing for proper blood and oxygen circulation back into the affected areas. NeuroMuscular Therapy is used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, “frozen shoulder” and rotator cuff injuries, Temporal Mandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines and is the most effective type of manual therapy for low back pain.
Myofascial Release (MFR) therapy is a safe and effective hands-on technique that focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness, where they have restricted motion or pulled the body out of alignment, causing individuals to favor and overuse another part of their body to compensate. It involves stretching and sustained pressure to myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore range of motion. This manual therapy is especially effective for patients with postural distortion, fibromyalgia, back pain and shoulder restriction and carpal tunnel syndrome.
