Myofacial Release -The technique focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues — the tough membranes that wrap, connect and support your muscles. During myofascial release therapy myofascial areas are located that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable under light manual pressure. These areas, though not always near what feels like the source of pain, are thought to restrict muscle and joint movements, which contributes to widespread muscle pain. The focused manual pressure and stretching used in myofascial release therapy loosen up restricted movement, leading indirectly to reduced pain.
Sports Massage - Sports massage focuses on muscles relevant to the event. For athletes who train continuously, the goal is to enhance endurance, lessen the chance of injury and shorten the time needed to recover from an event.Sports Massage may utilize a variety of techniques such as classical Swedish Massage, trigger point therapy, and hydrotherapy. Prior to an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used with stretching in order to help athletes to loosen, warm and prepare their muscles so that their performance and endurance might be enhanced. Following an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used to relieve pain, prevent stiffness, and return the muscles back to their normal state. Sports Massage may also be used for injury rehabilitation.
Circulatory massage is the most common healing method used for enhancing the proper flow of blood through the entire body and providing relaxation to the various muscles. This massage relaxes the tensed muscles in the body and relieves the stress from the body thus improving the overall health of the person. More advanced modalities such as deep tissue and those listed below can all be combined in a session dependent on special needs of the client.
Neuromuscular Therapy - This type of massage therapy has been found to be highly effective for back pain, resulting from a soft tissue injury, such as a muscle strain. Neuromuscular therapy involves alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas where there is muscle spasm. This process tends to relax the muscle, which then releases the lactic acid and allows the muscle to start receiving enough blood and oxygen. The goal of Neuromuscular Therapy is to bring about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.
