Utilizing a clinical approach, we combine any of the following techniques based on your initial evaluation.
MASSAGE THERAPY TREATMENTS WE OFFER INCLUDE:
Deep Tissue Massage is a technique used to treat issues or injuries within the deep layers of connective tissue also known as fascia. Often times, we associate deep tissue with extremely intense pressure which is not always the case. For instance, our skilled therapists approach your treatment plan by using a precise approach and specific manner in which we work in the deeper layers of connective tissue.
However, because deep tissue treatments are specific you may experience discomfort 24-48 hours after your treatment session. Therefore, we recommend staying hydrated and getting proper rest in order to allow the body to heal and restore it's normal functioning.
Sports massage aims to decrease the recovery time associated with training, prevent injury, increase range of motion and improve muscular function resulting in enhanced performance. Sports Massage treatments are used for pre-event, post-event and rehabilitative purposes.
We work closely with you in all stages and recommend stretching and strengthening exercises that will enhance your routine and help you achieve your performance goals.
Neuromuscular therapy is a technique used to reduce and/or relieve pain within the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. We carefully access the symptoms involved with your complaints in order to detect tension areas and constrictions. NMT examines and assesses the following to determine the mitigating factors that may be the cause of myofacial pain.
We incorporate this technique to treat trigger points (tight nodules within muscle fibers) or localized areas of irritation.
Myofascial Release technique addresses superficial to deep layers of connective tissue of the body known as fascia. Because of the interconnected nature of this tissue, restrictions in one area can eventually spread to other areas of the body, causing postural distortions that can lead to the occurrence of chronic pain patterns.
During the use of this technique, the fascia is directly manipulated with the goal of allowing the connective tissue fibers to reorganize and align themselves in a more flexible and functional manner. This technique will unwind deep holding patterns in the body, which will increase your range of motion and allow for greater movement and freedom in the body.
Orthopedic Massage incorporates a variety of techniques to treat various issues in the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic Massage a protocol of evaluation and treatment which is based on the principals of Orthopedic Medicine. This protocol includes the evaluation of injury using the same techniques utilized by orthopedic physicians, applying specific treatments based on evaluation results, and determining a course of treatment suited to the specific information gathered during the session and evaluation.
Knowledge of this type of treatment gives the therapist an edge in being able to properly assess an injury and therefore treat it as efficiently as possible, as well as refer to other practitioners if necessary.
