Types of Treatments
Deep tissue massage centers on realigning the deeper layers of connective and muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the tense areas.
Sports massage is similar to deep tissue massage but puts a strong focus on incorporating stretching and the session may be targeted to a specific area of the body.
The goal of myofascial therapy is to stretch and loosen the fascia so that it and other contiguous structures can move more freely, and the patient's motion is restored.
In addition to stress relief and relaxation, medical massage also manages pain, reduce inflammation, improve circulation, relieve nerve compression, improve digestion, increase flexibility or treat other health care concerns.
