What can I expect

Your treatment plan is tailored to your individual needs and will most likely involve some if not all the following techniques.

Compression Massage

​Rhythmic compression into muscles used to create a deep hyperemia (increased blood flow) and softening effect in the tissues. It is generally used as a warm-up for deeper, more specific massage work.

Cross-Fibre Massage

​Friction techniques applied in a general manner to create a stretching and broadening effect in large muscle groups; or on site-specific muscle and connective tissue, deep transverse friction applied to reduce adhesion's and to help create strong, flexible repair during the healing process.

Trigger Point/Tender Point Massage

​This uses combined positioning and specific finger or thumb pressure into trigger/tender points in muscle and connective tissue, to reduce the hypersensitivity, muscle spasms and referred pain patterns that characterize the point. Left untreated, such trigger/tender points often lead to restricted and painful movement of entire body regions.

Some of the benefits you should feel include:

Increased blood flow

Increased range of motion in the joints

Increased flexibility

Increased elimination of lactic acid

Decreased muscle tension

Your nerves are more relaxed

Increased sense of well-being
