Massage Therapy is Preventative Healthcare

Massage Therapy is a unique treatment modality which can be sought for relaxation, pain relief or rehabilitation.  There are numerous applications.  Basically, it is a highly effective form of passive exercise and a very important part of preventative health care.  It can be helpful with acute or chronic conditions and can be relied upon as an integral part of a person’s ongoing self-care program.  It promotes physical relaxation and wellness by improving circulation, relieving muscle tension, and addressing other soft tissue problems.

What are the different types of Massage therapy offered?

  • Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy
    • Manual Lymph Drainage is a specialized form of massage that aims to stimulate the lymphatic system to remove congestion and stagnation from within the body, thereby helping it return to a healthier condition.
  • Deep Tissue Therapy 
    • Deep tissue massage is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. The pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or “knots”.
  • Sports Injury Therapy
    • Muscle tears and repetitive strain injuries are examples of sports injuries. Injury rehabilitation therapy is designed to speed up the healing process and to prevent re-injury.
  • Prenatal Massage
    • Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
  • Infant Massage
    • Infant massage is the process of using gentle touch and light massage strokes on the infant specifically designed to enhance their health and wellbeing.
  • Intraoral TMJ Therapy
    • Intra-Oral massage is a safe and effective manual technique that works on muscles both inside and outside the mouth. It can be effective for patients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction, clenching, grinding, excessive jaw tension, some types of headaches, strains from orthodontia or dental surgery after effects, emotional trauma and chronic face and neck pain.
  • Myofascial Release
    • Myofascial Release is an effective hands-on therapy which can directly change and improve the health of the fascia. The purpose of Myofascial Release is to break down scar tissue, relax the muscle, myofascial, and restore good posture.
  • Craniosacral Therapy
    • Craniosacral therapy is a gentle form of bodywork that uses very light touch to balance the craniosacral system which is comprised of the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and the entire spine.
  • Visceral Manipulation Therapy
    • Visceral manipulation is the specific treatment of organs (e.g., gallbladder and other internal organs), with the intent of enhancing their natural functions, movements, and releasing restrictions.
  • Stamina Massage Therapy
    • Muscles can be easily moved into or out of alignment using even light pressure. Stamina Massage Therapy expands on conventional massage therapy with this new awareness that muscles have an optimal alignment. This form of massage therapy properly aligns the key muscles, improving muscle strength and function. It reinforces the proper neural pathways between the brain and the muscles. The client is educated on how to maintain the benefits of massages.
  • Side-lying Treatments
    • The side-lying position is an important alternative to lying on the front or back. Sometimes it is not ideal or even possible for clients to be positioned otherwise. Sinus congestion, pregnancy or certain spinal conditions are good examples for this application.  Comfort and proper body alignments set the client up for an excellent therapeutic experience!
