Orthopedic Massage

Orthopedic Massage is an advanced clinical / medical massage & bodywork therapy that assesses and treats musculoskeletal dysfunctions—soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments), and fascia to relieve and eliminate chronic pain and injuries, performed with the intent of improving medical conditions or pathologies that have been diagnosed by a physician  

The therapy, a synergism of several bodyworking modalities including Functional  Assessment,  Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue Mobilization, Trigger Point Myotherapy, Structural Integration, Neuromuscular re-education, Scar Tissue Mobilization, PNF Stretching, strengthening, and specific client home care protocols, to address the diagnosed condition, and treat orthopedic soft-tissue problems including, sports injuries, occupational overuse cases, and chronic pain.

Structural integration helps the body return to structural and functional postural alignment by removing tensions and restrictions in areas that have been held tight, and by further balancing myofascial relationships throughout the entire body

Warming, softening, and mobilizing the fascia and moving the fascial layers back to normal resting positions, facilitates musculoskeletal balance throughout the body, and restores all opposing muscle groups throughout the body to their normal resting lengths

Treatment restores balance to opposing muscle groups throughout the body, by first lengthening short, tight muscle groups and then toning the opposing weak inhibited tissues.

The combination of these techniques allows clients to obtain immediate and pain free movement and complete structural balance throughout the body in the most challenging and complicated conditions.
