Therapeutic Massage Services
A Therapeutic Massage provides symptom relief or help with:
- Certain health conditions
- Chronic pain and discomfort
- Restricted range of motion or mobility
Massage can enhance and accelerate your existing medical or physical therapy treatment.
Massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen. Oftentimes, the treatments below are combined in one Therapeutic Massage.
My goal with a Therapeutic Massage is to make sure the muscles are tracking right on the bones so that you don’t wear out your joints and so that your posture is upright.
Neuromuscular Massage (Trigger Point)
Neuromuscular Massage (Trigger Point) is a soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain or intermittent pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff “trouble spots” in your body. The massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic — relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain.
Sports Massage was developed to help with muscle systems used for a particular sport. Sports massage uses a variety of approaches or modalities to help athletes in training — before, during, or after sports events. You might use it to promote flexibility and help prevent injuries. Or, it may help muscle strains, aiding healing after a sports injury.
Benefits of these types of massages:
