This type of massage therapy focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It works by physically breaking down adhesions by applying deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. This form of massage is used very often on the skeletal structures that lie deep within the body which have been subjected to muscle, tendon and ligament injuries.
The goal of this specific massage is to facilitate optimum performance and help athletes return to play sooner after an injury. Our therapists target sport specific muscles to improve range of motion, flexibility, strength and endurance.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE/ TRIGGER POINT THERAPY:
This technique is used when working with the fascia, which is the connective tissue covering the body. This deep penetrating massage applies constant pressure to the fascia and trigger points to help eliminate pain, releasing muscle spasms, strengthening and stretching specific muscles.
This treatment focuses on breaking adhesions that bind muscles and impair nerves. The result is that the involved muscles are not as strong, and therefore the range of motion of the involved joint is limited. Patients experience these adhesions as fibrous, knotty areas that result in pain and tension.
HOT STONE MASSAGE:
This relaxing experience uses specially heated Lava Stones placed at specific points on the body to open up the meridians (energy pathways). Hot Stone Massage is commonly used to release toxins, reduce stress and improve circulation throughout the body.
