Therapeutic Massage

A variety of different massage methods and techniques are combined into each session and is designed to meet the goals and needs of each client. Therapeutic massage sessions are setup quite differently from a Swedish or Deep Tissue massage. A first time client may spend extra time at his or her session to complete a very thorough intake form detailing current and past health complaints. This type of session may retain a large relaxation element to it but advanced techniques are likely to be used for pain and chronic health issues. Advanced techniques such as fascia (connective tissue), acupressure, stretching, hot/cold therapy, and trigger point therapy may be used.

The purpose of fascia work is to release tightness and tension in the muscles as well as in the connective tissue throughout the body, known as the fascia. This style of massage effects all the tissues beneath the surface of the skin and into the deep into the muscles and tissues beneath it. The purpose is to realign these deeper layers of connective tissue as well as muscles beneath the surface layer. By realigning the muscles and tissues, pain is relieved and the body is able to relax.

A therapeutic or clinical massage practitioner will see a client very frequently for the first few weeks or months. This might include half hour massages three times a week, or weekly hour massages for a couple of months. Often times, therapeutic massage is an adjunct treatment in combination with pain management, physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, or recovery from injury/illness/surgery.
