Here are a few of the massage services we provide.
Fascia is connective tissue system that surrounds muscle, none and blood vessels. Trauma from accidents, surgery or repetitive motion can often lead to restrictions and tightness developing within this structure. In addition to causing pain, these restrictions can result in postural malalignment, compromised blood flow and ultimately increased risk of injury.
Myofascial release is a safe and effective hands on treatment that aims to eliminate restrictions within the myofascial connective making it become softer and more pliable. Clinically, this technique has been shown to improve pain and restore mobility.
Sports and remedial massage
Sports and remedial massage encompass a variety massage and soft tissue techniques that can be used to enhance performance, facilitate recovery and prevent injury.
Although commonly used with the athletic population, these techniques are also widely used among the general population as well on a range of musculoskeletal conditions to help reduce symptoms and improve function.
