Is a Clinical massage right for you?

It is if you are suffering from pain, soft tissue injuries, muscle stiffness, painful trigger points, restricted range of motion, muscle dysfunction or if just getting out of bed is harder to do.

chronic pain syndromes caused by prolonged periods of immobilization

The primary focus of massage is to work on the soft tissues. A clinical massage utilizes techniques that focuses on soft tissue injuries and the connective tissues of your muscles called, fascia. While fascia is highly elastic, the problem with fascia is prolonged periods of immobilization. If you hold, your body in one position for long periods of time (computer users), your fascia will adapt to that length. And resist any attempt to return to its normal length thus making your muscles become stuck.

Injuries to your body also has the same effect. The resultant response to an injury is the formation of adhesion’s and scar tissue, without proper treatment of this scar tissue formation will result in decrease muscle function and movement.

We use a 4 step rehabilitation protocol for treating soft tissue injuries:

  1. Normalize soft tissue dysfunction
  2. Improve flexibility
  3. Restore proper movement patterns
  4. Strengthening and Conditioning (not in-house) we provide recommendations.

Benefits of Clinical Massage

Clinical massage can benefit anyone who is suffering from chronic pain, painful trigger points and muscle dysfunction. But may also include individuals, who have respiratory breathing problems, suffer from poor posture, have scar tissue formation from a recent surgery or not so recent surgery.

This is a deeper type of massage working the different layers of muscles, connective tissues and muscle adhesion’s. It is also used for de-activating painful trigger points to restore normal muscle function. So if you had massages from other “Spas” and were not satisfied clinical massage is for you. While not common some bruising and muscle soreness may occur.
