Now that’s what I’m talking about
Massage therapy is meant to find discrepancies in the soft tissue through manual manipulation. Therapists use a variety of modalities to help them achieve this. Like myofascial release, Neuromuscular therapy, deep tissue, ect. Massage can also sedate the nervous system, encourage blood flow, relieve anxiety, help with insomnia and relieve an assortment of muscular tension issues.
When most people think massage, they usually think about a spa like setting, relaxing music and a lot of oil. I like to think of a massage like a seek and find mission. The session should be about looking for areas that are acutely hurting and also looking for areas that have been compensating. Surprisingly the muscles that compensate are quite important, because they are holding your structure in a way that is enabling the acute pain. So in other words, the place that has the most pain, isn't necessarily where there tension is. Mind blown right?
I think the world would be a better place if everyone got a massage on a regular basis. It's such an amazing way to check in with your body. Most people are holding tension they didn't even know they had. So why should you get a massage? Do you want to get rid of tension? Do you want to relax? Do you want to address an issue that is soft tissue in nature and anti inflammatories just aren't cutting it anymore? Let's figure it out together, book now!
