A Rehabilitative Massage, while utilizing the same focus and skill set as for a Therapeutic Massage, is much more site specific.
If presented with a lower back or shoulder problem, the time allotted for treatment may be spent entirely in the area of complaint. This type of bodywork focuses on including adjoining tissues and opposing muscles, as well as offering relaxation and integration for the problem area.
All of our work is therapeutic, it just depends on the body and severity of discomfort that dictates how much time is spent and where.
Techniques used in a Rehabilitative Massage to achieve softening and lengthening of tissues, to decrease pain, and to increase range of motion may include:
Stress is held in the body physically and emotionally. It manifests physically through poor posture, strain, injuries or trauma. Emotionally, stress comes from many areas including work, family and economics. Stress is held in the soft tissue of the body by shortening or contracting the muscle fibers. Over time the tissue fails to return to normal resting length resulting in chronic tightness and muscle fatigue. Therapeutic massage and bodywork techniques can help relieve these symptoms by softening and lengthening tight and contracted tissue. Truly, massage has many benefits for body and mind.
Our skills are tailored to each individual, with no routine. We check-in through out a session to make sure you are comfortable and the depth of treatment is appropriate.
