Just some of the massage techniques we offer include:
- Deep Tissue Massage – This technique requires knowledge of human musculature. Targeted massage is performed on specific muscle and connective groups. This penetrates the muscles and provides relief from aches and even chronic pain.
- Compression Massage – This method is common to sports massage. Compression is a warm up for the muscles. Rhythmic massage loosens areas and releases tightness. Think of compression as a pre or primer massage.
- Trigger Point Therapy – Ailments aren’t always related to the areas you think they are. Areas of tightened muscles can interrupt the signaling of nerves. A muscle group in the back could be responsible for a headache. TPT targets these hidden problem areas.
- Cupping – Creating a vacuum in a cup allows for the massage therapist to execute a sort of reverse massage. This reversing of pressure can alleviate specific strains, promote blood flow to an area, and reduce inflammation.
Benefits of Massage for All Lifestyles
From highly active athletes to desk-bound professionals, massage can help our bodies move and feel better. After weeks of intense physical workouts that cause knots and muscle tension, a simple hour-long sports massage session can break apart tight muscle fibers and aid optimal athletic performance. On the other hand, a chiropractic massage therapist can use pressure to promote healthy blood circulation and prevent the risk of blood clots after days on end of sedentary activity. In addition, massage therapy is known to cure these common ailments:
- Digestive disorders
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Joint pain
