For Pain Relief
Deep Tissue Massage- The primary goal of any Deep Tissue style of massage is to restore balance to the body by relieving tension in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Deep tissue massage is applied to both the superficial and deep layers of muscles, fascia, and other structures. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience chronic pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have experienced accident or injury.
Myofascial Release - Doctor prescribed and supervised massage that is focused on an injured or restricted area. This style focuses on lengthening the fascial component of chronically shortened muscles allowing the muscles to return to a relaxed state. Chronic postural habits can also be addressed. Clients who receive Myofascial release massage can enjoy greater range of motion along with increased ease when standing and moving. An accomplished neuromuscular therapist addresses the effects of postural distortion, reduced circulation, trigger points, old injuries and new traumas, all which can lead to pain and dysfunction.
Trigger point therapy involves identifying and treating Trigger points, or muscle knots, which are hyper-irritable palpable nodules in muscle. Trigger points have been measured electrically and visualized using MRI. Unexplained pain frequently radiates from Trigger points to broader areas, often distant from the Trigger point itself, causing headaches, shoulder aches and more. A successful treatment protocol relies on identifying trigger points, resolving them with manual pressure and, if all trigger points have been deactivated, stretching the affected muscles to prevent reccurence.
