I practice a variety of massage modalities including Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Facilitated Stretching, and Muscle Energy Techniques. I also practice Swedish Massage if you are looking for a more relaxing massage. On your first appointment we can discuss your condition, goals you have for mobility, and how massage can help manage your symptoms.
Please provide any health conditions and the medications you are taking so I can adjust the treatment accordingly. At the end of the session, I may also provide self care ideas to help manage a condition or to improve on your body mechanics.
A series of treatments may be needed to improve some conditions and monthly treatments may be suitable for regular maintenance. Everyone heals and responds to massage differently and having a two way communication with your therapist is very important for your safety and to achieve the best results.
Therapeutic Massage is used to provide pain relief, increase mobility, and assistance with recovery from exercise or injuries. Overuse, stress, and other health conditions can make your muscles fatigued. Posture and compensation patterns can increase muscle dysfunctions and escalate symptoms further. Depending on your condition and goals, a variety of techniques can be used to help alleviate and prevent this from happening. Muscle tension, restrictions, and adhesions are released and reset to ease pain, release metabolic waste, break up scar tissue, and increase range of motion.
As with Therapeutic Massage, various massage techniques can be used to help reduce pain and symptoms for a specific diagnosis. If your doctor has prescribed massage therapy to help manage your condition, please bring in the prescription and I will develop a treatment plan.
