Orthopedic Therapeutic Massage

This unique massage goes far beyond the traditional clinical sports massage modalities by addressing all the common medical and orthopedic conditions found in most clients.  The therapist combines sequences of functional assessment, myofascial release, N.M.T. fractioning muscle energy stretching, neuromuscular re-education and structural balancing.  The combination of these techniques allows the patient to obtain excellent results to alleviate.

Sports: Athlete’s Level

Decreases muscle soreness because it flushes muscles of built up waste products that can make the athlete sore after vigorous exercise.  Muscles can become so contracted that they press on nerves to the arms, hands, and legs.  Sports massage should be a regular part of any sports training.  It is oriented in deep tissue muscle manipulation with range of motion evaluation and muscular facilitation techniques.  It also works for muscle spasms, neck stiffness, sore muscles, sprains and strains.

Medical: Soft Tissue Manipulation

Propioceptive Neuromuscular: This modality releases muscle spasms and brings relief to chronically tense muscles.  It also helps to heal soft tissue injuries.  It limits scar formation in new injuries and can reduce or make more pliable scar tissue around old injuries.  We create a personal plan for each patients’ maximum benefit.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Special massage techniques to stimulate ligaments and tendons of the neck, arms and hands.  The massage techniques are combined with heat, hot wax and infrared light treatments.
