This session begins with a tension and postural evaluation to determine imbalances, then finding and releasing the tight muscles that are responsible for the problems. We will investigate probable causes (work related, accident, sports injury, etc.) and look into ways to help remedy any ongoing and correctable stresses. Several different modalities are used to loosen tight connective tissue that causes painful muscle holding patterns. The deep tissue pressure is adjusted to the level of preference for each client.
Therapeutic massage can reduce stress which results in providing more energy. During massage, the therapist stretches and kneads away muscle tension, which can often help with a short-term cramp, or a chronic nagging painful site. Therapeutic massage helps with injury rehabilitaion, post-exercise soreness, pain or tingling in arms or legs, injuries, and injury prevention, as well as pain or restriction in joints. This type of therapeutic sports massage is preferred by athletes for optimum maintenance and overall wellbeing.
