Integrative Massage Therapy
for Athletes and Chronic Pain Management
Deep Tissue Massage
The goal of deep tissue massage is to break down adhesions - places where the muscle has become chronically contracted. Deeper pressure is used to affect the sublayers of musculature and fascia. Deep tissue massage helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation, and reduces inflammation related pain (ie arthritis, tendinitis).
Massage techniques and passive stretching utilized to achieve a specific goal when treating an athlete and the effects of athletic performance on the body, pre/post-event and during training. It's also helpful for anyone who routinely stretches physical limits through movement - weight lifters, crossfitters, yogis, and weekend warriors!
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is a hyper-irritable area in a tight band of muscle. Pressure applied to a trigger point will usually elicit local tenderness, referred pain, and local twitch response.
Trigger point therapy uses focused, sustained pressure to interrupt the neural signals that cause both the trigger point and the pain.
