Two medical-grade massage therapies
Deep tissue massage is one of the most common therapeutic and restorative massages. “Deep tissue” refers to the muscles that lie beneath the superficial layer of muscles, which bear the most strain during strenuous activity and repetitive motion. These muscles often become overused, tight, and suffer what we often refer to as “knots,” pain and soreness. A deep tissue massage will use slow, deep strokes against the grain of the muscle to release knots and relieve tension.
Corrective massage aims to massage your muscles in order to bring your body into more proper alignment, similar to chiropractic work. Tension and strain can restrict range of motions and throw movements out of balance. The therapist will listen to your pains and use soothing massage to help make alignment changes. Regular corrective massage will re-educate muscles to perform in balance.
All of our licensed Massage Therapist’s use a number of soft tissue therapy techniques which help to reduce pain, muscle hyper-tonicity and spasm. Some of the techniques we employ are trigger point therapy, mysofacial release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, acupressure point therapy, and active tension release. The need and benefits of these therapies vary from patient to patient. Its important to see that if your specific condition requires massage, Dr. Dominic will prescribe it for you and incorporate it into your treatment plan.
