Therapeutic massage is the intentional and systematic manipulation of the skin, muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the body. A combination of different massage techniques are used to target the muscular system and soft tissues of the body to enhance health, promote healing, restore movements, and improve function. These techniques include swedish massage, neuromuscular therapy massage, and deep tissue massage {most commonly used in patients with muscle pain}.

Research shows that massage therapy is an effective treatment for:
  • Reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension
  • Improving blood circulation and range of motion
  • Improving chronic pain through increased endorphin levels
  • Stiffness
  • Sports-related Injuries
  • Some types of low back and neck pain
  • Anxiety, fibromyalgia, headaches and nerve pain.

Massage is helpful and safe for most patients. You should inform your doctor that you are trying massage and always go to a certified massage therapist or physical therapist.

Massage Techniques

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE OR TRIGGER POINT

This technique is often used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that is targets the fascia, the membrane surrounding muscles. This technique is done by applying pressure to the fascia, to loosen tight tissues. This results in reduced inflammation and pain in various parts of the body.

cupping therapy

Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on the skin for a few minutes to create suction. People receive this time of massage for many purposes including to help with pain, inflammation, blood and lymph flow, relaxation and well-being and as a type of deep tissue massage. This type of massage is even used for Olympic athletes!

NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY (NMT)

This technique is an approach to soft tissue manual therapy where pressure is applied to soft tissues, often trigger points. This therapy aims to balance the neuromuscular system to address poor posture, biomechanical dysfunction and nerve irritation. 

ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING

This method was developed by Aaron Mattes. Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic system for improving flexibility and overall well being. AIS involves holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching is also known to work with the body’s natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep tissue massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions and past lingering injuries. Keep in mind that soreness is common after treatment; drink plenty of water to aid with flushing and removing toxins that have been released during the massage.

SPORTS MASSAGE

Designed for those that lead a highly active lifestyle. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long-term. Sports massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pain and swelling in the body, relax the mine, increase flexibility and dramatically improve recovery rates.

SWEDISH MASSAGE

A relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines lotion or oils with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve circulation. The benefits of this type of massage are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, and greater flexibility.
