This bodywork is a therapeutic technique used to reduce or eliminate bodily pain and discomfort. This technique often goes very deep into musculoskeletal tissue; however the term 'deep' mostly refers more to its penetrating effects. Deep Tissue is designed to relieve muscles of scarring and adhesions that cause pain and limited range of motion, reduce pain and swelling after injury, and increase ease and range of motion.
A large number of athletes (competitive and weekend warriors) are incorporating Sports Massage into their regimen. The benefits include improved circulation, flexi- bility and range of motion, decreased recovery time from competition and training, injury prevention, increased muscular efficiency and increased physical awareness derived from anatomical and functional education.
This is a technique specifically aimed at facilitating positive change within the connective tissue in the body known as fascia. Fascia thickens and forms adhesions when there is trauma caused by repetitive motion or injury. Healthy, flexible fascia means better circulation, better tissue nutrition, and better movement within the body and muscles systems. Poor function will cause pain and stiffness.
This is a manual approach to the treatment of numerous pain and injury conditions previously treated with conven-tional, medical methods. Whether you are suffering from whiplash, a sprained ankle, tennis or golfers elbow, many types of impingement syndromes or any type of tendonitis Orthopedic Massage is often a holistic alternative to pills, injections or surgery.
