Massage Therapy services offered:

JOINT MOBILIZATION
Joint mobilization is a skilled manual therapy technique which aims to improve joint range of motion and reduce pain. Joint mobilization uses targeted pressures or forces on a joint in specific directions to improve the mobility of that joint.  It can be performed at different levels of intensity, keeping the comfort of the patient in mind through guided feedback.  It is usually pain-free.

Benefits of Joint Mobilization include:

  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved joint mechanics

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE
Myofascial release is a very beneficial technique that can be used in conjunction with other techniques or all on its own. Fascia is a connective tissue as well as a whole system that provides support and structural scaffolding within the body. The fascial system consists of many layers, encompassing groups of muscles and dividing them into compartments; covering individual muscles and organs; all the way down to the cells of the muscles. Within these sheets of fascia runs our nerves and blood vessels.

Myofascial release aims to decrease adhesions and myofascial trigger points, which can increase the health of the tissues within the body by allowing optimal blood flow or nervous system activity to the muscle tissues. Fascial adhesions form when we have a lifestyle of limited physical activity, repetitive actions, habitual poor posture/work related positions, or from trauma such as injury or surgery.

Benefits of myofascial release include:

  • Increased range of motion
  • Decreased muscle pain
  • Improved tissue recovery process
  • Overall relaxation
  • Improved circulation
  • Relief of tension, knots, and stress

NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a specialized form of manual therapy that corrects pain and dysfunction through the treatment of fascial patterns, muscle adhesions, and trigger points. These can all form due to a series of repetitive movements, a specific postural pattern, or injury/trauma.

Benefits of NMT include:

  • Restoring physiological body mechanics
  • Creating balance between central nervous and musculoskeletal systems
  • Decreasing the hyper constriction and spasm of soft tissue
  • Restoring flexibility and rebuilding strength

SWEDISH MASSAGE
Swedish Massage is among the most common type of massage therapies. The main goal of Swedish Massage is full body relaxation. Light to moderate pressure is used, along with long strokes, allowing the return of blood to the heart, as well as inducing a state of relaxation. It also uses the combination of soft, long, rhythmic, and tapping strokes with joints’ movement.

Benefits of Swedish Massage include:

  • Pain management
  • Increased local blood flow
  • Rehabilitation for muscle injuries
  • Increased flexibility
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved immune system
