Therapeutic massage helps relieve pain, reduce stress and work on a specific problem. People of all ages and walks of life can benefit from massage therapy such as athletes, tradesmen or stressed office workers. It can also be beneficial to pregnancy related tensions. Massage can help keep you in good physical condition.
Sports and Deep Tissue Massage
The therapy is geared towards athletes of any kind from world class professionals to weekend joggers. This therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation, reduce recovery time and prevent injury for maximum performance during training or post-event.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
