Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles.
This type of massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.
Trigger Point Massage
Trigger points, also known as trigger sites or muscle knots, are described as hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers.
Trigger point therapy, sometimes confused with pressure point massage, involves deactivating trigger points that may cause local pain or refer pain and other sensations, such as headaches, in other parts of the body. Manual pressure, vibration, injection, or other treatment is applied to these points to relieve myofascial pain.
Range of Motion
As we get older our joints tend to tighten, making range of motion and flexibility even more restricted.
By working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints, we can improve your flexibility and range of motion, keeping your joints more fluid and making them less injury prone.
The myofascial release approach is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and resulting pain and restriction of motion.
This type of treatment is used to treat chronic pain from the following: back, neck, menstrual, headaches, jaw, and others.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage consists of traditional massage techniques with the incorporation of therapeutic heat through warmed stones. The temperature aids in the healing process much like hot pads do. In addition each stroke with a massage stone is 10 times more effective than a traditional stroke.
Cupping is the combination of therapeutic touch and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup.
The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.
Low-level infrared therapy is a type of low-energy laser that uses light in the infrared spectrum. The Anodyne Therapy System is a type of low-level infrared therapy, developed by Integrated Systems Physiology Inc. (Aurora, CO), that has been promoted for augmenting wound healing, for reversing the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy in people with diabetes, and for treating lymphedema. The manufacturer states that the Anodyne Therapy System increases circulation and reduces pain by increasing the release of nitric oxide.
E-Stim (Electronic Stimulation)
Neuropathic E-Stim (Electronic Stimulation) Therapy is a non-invasive, practical approach to chronic pain management using E-Stim (ETPS or Electrotherapy Point Stimulation) applied to trigger, motor and acupressure points.
Erchonic Percussor Therapy
Percussive massage sends short pulses of concentrated energy into the body's deep tissue to break up fascia, relieve trigger points, and effectively "reset" muscle memory to a neutral state.
It is particularly beneficial for the treatment of injuries as a result of trauma, surgery, or disease.
