Orthopedic Massage - Provides injury rehabilitation, correction of soft tissue dysfunction, and pain management through a series of sessions designed to release and re-educate your musculature. One common injury commonly addressed with Orthopedic Massage is Repetitive Strain injury (RSI), otherwise known as Repetitive Motion Disorder.
RSI is a term used to describe symptoms such as pain, swelling and/or tenderness which occur from repeating the same motion over and over. Musicians , athletes , and those who work with computers are especially susceptible to this type of dysfunction.
MAT is an effective complement to Orthopedic Massage. It uses soft tissue to address skeletal dysfunction such as sciatic pain, knee and hip pain, functional scoliosis, sacral torsions and cervical spine pathologies.
Sports Massage - The goal of sports massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance. This can be accomplished by relieving swelling and fatigue, reducing muscle tension, promoting flexibility and preventing injuries.
Each type of sport places different demands on the body and each uses the muscles in different ways. Sports massage is designed to help the body rebound from wear and tear. Treatment will differ according to the type and degree of athletic endeavor. Sports massage can help heal strained muscles and allow healthy ones to reach and maintain peak performance while minimizing the risk of injury.
No training program is complete without a regular massage component. This is true for serious competitors and recreational athletes alike. More people now realize that working out includes more than just the exercise. In order to remain fit and healthy over the long term, the body demands that we attend to wear and minor injuries sustained during our training.
