“People Who Are Crazy Enough To Think They Can Change The World, Are The Ones Who Do.”
Orthopedic Massage is an advanced form of massage therapy. It is NOT the same as Spa massage. The focused application of technique and skill is used to hone in on your complaint and focus is given to all of its related structures until they are corrected. They are not just skimmed over. These are very specific and highly specialized corrective massage & manipulative therapy techniques of an advanced massage skillset. It can involve deep tissue massage and advanced massage therapy skills and techniques that are highly effective in creating change and in being a catalyst of healing in the soft tissues its applied to. It requires FOCUSED attention to the problem area. The techniques require time to induce change in the soft tissue it is applied to, and everyone's reaction time is individual, so these techniques must be applied with adequate skill, appropriate pressure and directed movement and time allowed for changes to occur. It also requires an excellent knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology and biomechanics to understand how to get to the root of complaints in order to fully address and alleviate them. Orthopedic massage is an intensive and very thorough treatment focused upon the injury and individualized care. Areas outside of and unrelated to the complaint area are not given any time or focus. We don't treat your whole body when the problem is related only to the shoulder for instance, in other words, we would focus on just the problem with the shoulder, and its related integrated structures, like the neck, back and arm. This type of massage is medical based massage therapy and is NOT a full body or spa relaxation type massage.
This is a special type of massage called Target Massage; time is not wasted on unrelated areas, and the problem area is properly assessed and receives the time and focus it needs to assess, treat and begin to resolve the issue. Whether you have whiplash from a car accident, a bulging disc, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder or carpal tunnel, give me call today and get your issues sorted out and relieved. I am your specialized Massage Therapist for the most complex complaints! Direct Billing available for most common insurance companies including Medavie Blue Cross for Veterans and RCMP.
Relaxation massage IS considered therapeutic and I use relaxation massage techniques and sessions to treat specific problems. This kind of massage also has immense therapeutic value. Relaxation massage profoundly affects the nervous system and is a preferred effective therapy for stress-related problems where the sympathetic nervous response needs to be inhibited. It reduces the fight or flight response and can reduce cortisol levels. Relaxation massage has a myriad of effects on all of the body's systems, including upon blood and lymphatic vessels, improving circulation, lowering blood pressure and improving functionality. It can affect the body very positively on a cellular level and is an effective therapy for swellings, sprains, strains and edema and many musculo-skeletal problems. Relaxation massage is often a preferred method of treatment for individuals who find deep tissue massage to be too intense and painful. Relaxation massage offered at this center is offered as full body relaxation therapy.
