Treatments 

Therapeutic Massage

A session intended to helping a specific issue most commonly focusing on muscle pain and stiffness rather than helping you relax. Goals of these sessions may include increase in range of motion, improved circulation, posture correction, muscle stimulation, and reduced stress. Muscle spasms, adhesions, and trigger points are searched and addressed. We do not merely "push on what hurts". There are many places that can and will do that. Every session, our therapists try to identify the focal points to best target our attention. 
 

Repetitive movement in your daily life will create imbalances in the soft tissues over time that can cause pain and tension.  This imbalance can affect your ability to perform other activities and day to day tasks and cause pain, tension and dysfunction.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is focused and systematic, targeting muscles that are used in a specific sport. It uses various techniques to decrease muscle pain and improve recovery, as well as improve overall range of motion and flexibility to support safe and effective movement. A sports massage therapist can assist with training, rehabilitation, and pre- or post-performance goals. While often sought by elite and amateur athletes, sports massage can also be beneficial for anyone who regularly exercises.

Prenatal Massage 

Prenatal massages are performed in a side-lying position for maximum safety and comfort. Patients are evaluated during the first visit and periodically re-evaluated for the duration of the pregnancy. Treatments are commonly focused on regions of developing stress and tension in the lumbopelvic area, pain in neck and shoulders from weeks to months of side sleeping, and possible fluid retention around the extremities.

Chiropractic Therapy


Chiropractic care is a common method to treat back pain.  Spinal adjustment is a passive manual maneuver used to manipulate, massage, mobilize, adjust, stimulate, apply traction to the spine and related tissues.  A spring-loaded tool is sometimes used to deliver a precise measured force to the joint.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) 

Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is a type of manual massage therapy that includes using specialized tools to manipulate the skin, myofascia, muscles, and tendons by using various direct compressive stroke techniques

They have a combination of bevels and contours to be able to conform to certain parts of the body, such as back, legs or wrists. They promote healing by breaking up fascia, adhesions, scar tissue and bringing blood to the surface. The tools originate from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), where they are known as guasha and have been used since ancient times.Also known as the Graston Technique, this type of treatment can be beneficial for many people with movement restrictions, tension, and pain.

 

TMJ/TMD Massage Therapy
Soft tissue treatment for TMJ syndrome - jaw pain or "locked jaw" from tightness and imbalance in the TMJ muscles because of teeth grinding, jaw clenching, and/or prior trauma. Massage and trigger point therapy is focused on the muscles surrounding the temporomandibular joint but also addresses facial and neck pain commonly associated with with temporomandibular joint disorder.
Cupping
This therapy uses glass or silicone cups to create suction on the surface of the body. The cups are moved over the skin for a short time using gliding, shaking, popping, and rotating techniques to help facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. The suction reaches deep into the soft tissue to facilitate healing by loosening connective tissue, adhesions, moving stagnation and increasing lymphatic flow and circulation. Another benefit is the negative pressure pulling cellular debris from the body to the surface of the skin where the lymphatic system can more readily eliminate stagnation.
 
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression. It uses a light touch to release tension around your body’s connective tissue network called the fascia. It’s thought that through the gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spine, and pelvis, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system can be normalized. This removes “blockages” from the normal flow, which enhances the body’s ability to heal.
Lymphathic Flow/Drainage

Lymphatic drainage therapy, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, relieves swelling that happens when medical treatment or illness blocks your lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of your body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels. Conditions that may find this particularly helpful include post surgery related swelling, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia.

Traditional Thai Massage
Thai Yoga massage combines gentle stretches and an energy line system to help the body increase flexibility and reduce stress and anxiety. Session will be a full body massage which will be performed on a floor mat with patients in loose and comfortable clothing. Therapist incorporates yoga-like stretches and compression to release deeper muscle tension and stress.
Multi-planar Stretching


Assisted stretching reduces stiff muscles and inflammation while re-establishing proper muscle length.  We incorporate multi-planar combo stretches to better mimic real life activities of daily life or specified for your athletic pursuits.

 
Joint Mobilization Therapy


Gentle assisted movements performed by a chiropractor to restore joint motion that has been reduced due to aging, overuse, or prior injury.  You can liken it to “massaging” a joint and the results are - reduced pain, stiffness and inflammation; decreased joint wear and tear; and improvements in disc nutrition. The bottom line is better movement and improved function!  Stiff joints are gently soothed to improve mobility.
