Medical / Orthopedic Massage
The use of several types of therapies to restore balance within the muscular system, including postural assessments and testing, trigger point therapy, deep tissue work, myofascial stretching, and other myoskeletal alignment techniques to allow muscles, tendons and ligaments to perform full range of motion, releasing any restricted areas and reducing pain and tension.
This type of massage works differently with each type of athlete. Competitive power lifters, swimmers, triathletes, runners, cyclists, football players, wrestlers, etc...each have their own specific set of issues. Several techniques are used to help each athlete, whether professional or weekend warrior, achieve muscular balance and control and prevent and/or eliminate overuse injuries or muscle strains.
