Types of Massage
Additional Treatment Techniques Offered
Our Massage Therapists work hard to continue their training/education through additional courses in order to offer our patients the best possible options for treatment. If you are interested in any of these techniques, our front desk staff would be happy to find a therapist that offers them.
These techniques are included as part of the massage, just let your therapist know if you want to try them.
Modern cupping uses plastic cups and a pump to suction the specific areas of the body. The suction causes skin and superficial muscle to be drawn into and held in the cup. Cups can be placed on acupuncture points and/or can be moved across the skin to break down scar tissue while helping mobilize tissue and fascial restrictions using a decompressive technique. Bruising is a common side affect of cupping and in completely normal due to the suction.
Graston Technique enables the therapist to address scar tissue, fascial restrictions and range of motion limitations. The non-invasive technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation by helping to break down scar tissue in order to increase pliability of the ligaments and tendons. This will help to increase range of motion and assist in injury recovery recovery.
RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, is a soft tissue, movement based therappeutic technique that addresses the central nervous system's role in alleviating pain, tension and restrictions within muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. RAPID works by treating the body at the neurological level to stimulate a reprogramming of the tissue - tight muscles relax, range of motion is restored, and the pain is eliminated. This helps active individuals quickly get back to life and living.
