Bringing Peace to Tired Muscles

Benefits of Massage

 

 

Therapeutic Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage consists of gliding, kneading, pressing, and even tapping strokes to improve circulation and relax muscles.Many people think of massage strictly for relaxation, but it can also boost the immune system, speed recovery from muscle and ligament injuries and improve range of motion. So whether you are training for a marathon or coping with unusual levels of stress, Swedish massage can help with your performance and bolster your mood. Work with your practitioner to establish your ideal massage setting. Things to consider are; how much to wear, what level of pressure is comfortable, what areas to massage and whether you would like music or quiet. Remember it's your time, make the most of it.

 

 Myofascial Techniques

(Rossiter System, Myofascial Release System & Cupping Massage )

The Rossiter System (http://therossitersystem.com/) is a complete set of pain-busting manipulation techniques for carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, sciatica, stiff neck, headaches, and more. The practitioner uses her foot to apply weight and heat to a troubled area while the client stretches to maximum extent of his/her range of motion. The weight and heat of the foot allow the fascia to return to its full length.

 

 Myofascial Release Massage (http://www.howardrontal.com/) works with the fascia while the client is on the table. The practitioner uses her fingers, knuckles, fists and elbows to work specific problem areas. This technique is great for all kinds of repetitive motion and postural issues.

Cupping massage gives wonderful dimension to a treatment. The silicone cups allow the therapist to move tissue by lifting and stretching it. It is very effective for moving fluid and freeing scar tissue. (http://www.ganeshainstitute.com/)

 

 

Lymphatic Drainage Plus

Lymphatic Drainage is a very gentle technique which helps relieve swelling and pain. It can be used early in a injury to decrease inflammation and speed recovery. Lymph drainage helps decongest your sinuses from an infection or allergies.

Oncology Massage

Oncology Massage is very gentle supportive work for people struggling with cancer and the side effects of cancer treatment.

 

Medical Massage

 (must be prescribed by a doctor for a Workman's Compensation or an Auto Insurance injury)

Medical Massage is the key to faster and more complete injury rehabilitation. It releases fascial (connective tissue) adhesions caused by acute and chronic injuries through both massage and Rossiter stretches. Additionally, Medical Massage increases the blood flow to afflicted areas and flushing waste products. It will also decrease the need for pain medication.
