Certified Massage Therapy Modalities:

  1. Hendrickson's Method of Orthopedic Massage & Manual Therapy/Rehabilitation of Soft tissue Injuries:

    In this modality, the techniques used, facilitate neurological function through "Muscle Energy Techniques (MET's)" that include Reciprocal Inhibition & Contract-Relax methodology. The goal of the Orthopedic Massage is to induce a change in the structure and function of the neuro-musculo-skeletal soft tissue to promote healing. Work on clients, assisting with soft tissue rehabilitation with Medical issues like Whiplash, Tendinitis, Frozen Shoulder & Rotator cuff Injuries, Sciatica, Piriformis Syndrome, Iliotibial Band Syndrome, Hamstrings and Quadriceps strain, Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis/Golfer's elbow, Tension Headaches etc.

    Some of the important clinical effects of the OM are: Increases new tissue cells to promote repair & healing of injuries; Promotes fluid exchange of blood, lymph and synovial fluids to increase nutrition & oxygenation of the tissue; normalizes the function of muscles by reducing hypertonicity in the muscles & strengthening weak muscles; establishes normal neurologic function in the soft tissue; mobilizes restricted joints and promotes healthy cartilage.

  2. Sports Massage Therapy:

    This modality uses specific deep transverse and longitudinal frictional strokes to prevent and break down adhesions and to rehabilitate soft tissue dysfunction. Several stretching techniques are used (Static Stretching, PNF- Proprioceptive NeuroMuscular Facilitation Stretching and AIS- Active Isolated Stretching) to work with acute/chronic injuries and/ or tight & constricted muscles or for general pain reduction.

    Sports Massage optimizes positive performance factors such as healthy muscle & connective tissues, normal range of motion, high energy and fluid and pain free movement.

  3. Deep Tissue Massage /Swedish Massage:

    In these modalities, the therapy focuses on 'Body Structural' work where the goals are to induce better posture, more flexibility and fluid movements in the body, combined with relaxation.

  4. Trigger Point Therapy:

    Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body.

  5. Myofascial Release Therapy:

    Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on manual therapy technique that uses sustained pressure into restrictions in the fascial system to eliminate pain, and restore motion and function to the body.

    The word "myofascial" is derived from the Greek word "myo", which means "muscle", and the word "fascia". Fascia is the thin layer system of connective tissue in the body that interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein, organ and cell in the body.

    Adhesions and scar tissue may be broken down using specific hands on techniques, causing increased mobility, improved strength and decreased pain.

  6. NeuroMassage Therapy:

    NeuroMassage incorporates massage techniques to relax the nervous systems in our body by making changes in the state of neural networks (pain thresholds, muscular tension levels, organ function and emotional state). The NeuroMassage technique activates the electrical energy of the nervous system through subtle and gentle strokes combined with complete relaxation.
