Remedial Massage

Feeling like you have tight muscles and not moving well? A remedial massage from our therapist might be just the thing you need to get you back to your optimal functioning.

Remedial massage is the assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. This type of massage can assist in returning you to normal health after injury. Remedial massage may help in reducing or eliminating pain to restore the body’s optimal function. It involves a thorough case history and examination to ascertain your current health status.

Remedial massage is treatment given with the understanding not only of anatomy and physiology but also of the demands placed upon the body by the client and their specific sport.

Sports massage treatment is done with the principal mandate of returning you to your desired sports activity with the same or an even better level of function. Remedial massage can include stronger techniques that approach muscles more deeply.

What is Dry Needling and Cupping?

Dry Needling

Dry needling is also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling. It involves the use of either solid filiform needles or hollow-core hypodermic needles and may assist in reducing muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. This technique may assist with reducing pain, inflammation, improving blood flow to an area as well as bringing about a sense of relaxation and well-being. It is considered to be a deep-tissue massage technique.

What to Expect at Your Massage Appointment

Our massage therapist combines sports massage techniques with other remedial massage techniques including trigger point therapy, myofascial release and stretching. Dry needling and cupping may also be incorporated as appropriate.
