Clinical Massage Services
Deep Tissue Massage
When many people think of a massage, they picture a relatively light touch, working the skin and surface muscles. While such a massage can promote blood flow and be very relaxing, it won’t do much to help chronic conditions and old injuries. This is where deep tissue massage is helpful.
Remedial massage is a form of therapeutic massage that focuses on injury recovery and alleviating pain. It requires patient participation as you and your massage therapist will work together to identify problem areas and potential causes for your pain. These causes may include posture problems, repetitive motion injuries, old trauma, and diseases.
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
“Myo-“ means muscle and “fascial” refers to the fascia, connective tissue found throughout your body. In certain chronic diseases, like multiple sclerosis (MS) and fibromyalgia, muscle and connective tissues may tighten and form knots, usually at intersections of these tissues. These knots are referred to as trigger points and can be the cause of pain throughout the body in these patients. Trigger points can also form from old injuries where scar tissue has replaced normal, healthy tissue.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
The lymphatic system aids in eliminating waste from your body. This system sometimes clogs or becomes sluggish, particularly after surgery or injury. When this happens, swelling often occurs. This swelling can be accompanied by pain which often times radiates through the lower limbs.
A pregnancy is an exciting and hopeful time in your life. Unfortunately, this time often comes with aches, swelling, fatigue, and a host of other problems. Expectant mothers can find their quality of life negatively impacted by conditions that arise with a pregnancy. Professional pre-natal massage can help with all these issues in addition to providing relaxation and emotional unwinding.
