Modalities

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a basic relaxing full body massage which may include a variety of massage strokes such as rolling, kneading, petrissage and percussion.  These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions they also work to improve circulation.  Swedish is a wonderful way to relax and unwind.

  Muscle Energy Techniques

 


Muscle Energy Technique (MET)  is a manual therapy that uses the gentle muscle contractions of the patient to relax and lengthen muscles and normalize joint motion.

To define it specifically, it is “a direct manipulative procedure that uses a voluntary contraction of the patient’s muscles against a distinctly controlled counter-force from a precise position and in a specific direction”. It is considered an active technique, as opposed to a passive technique where only the massage therapist does the work.

There are two types of MET:

· Post-Isometric Relaxation (PIR) The therapist stretches and lengthens a muscle as it relaxes right after a client contraction. This lengthens, relaxes and realigns the muscle fibers. This is useful with chronic conditions to assist in resetting the muscle tone.

· Reciprocal Inhibition (RI) It is a law of body dynamics that when you contract a muscle the opposing or reciprocal muscle must relax. That is the way the brain is wired and the principle that makes this technique work. The massage therapist has the patient’s muscle perform a contraction against resistance which relaxes the opposing muscle and minimizes the aggravation to the injured muscle and soft tissue.

Benefits of Massage

Heading to the spa can be a pampering treat, but it can also be a huge boost to your

health and wellness! Massage therapy is increasingly being used along with standard

treatments for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. People who choose to

supplement their healthcare regimen with regular massages will not only enjoy a

relaxing hour or two, but they will see the benefits carry through the days and weeks

after the appointment! The purpose of massage is to relax the tissue, increase the flow

of blood and oxygen, and decrease pain.



Massage therapy at its most basic is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).

People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons – to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellness. 



Studies have found massage may be helpful for:

· Anxiety

· Digestive disorders

· Fibromyalgia

· Headaches

· Insomnia related to stress

· Myofascial pain syndrome

· Soft tissue strains or injuries

Lymphnatic Massage

The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other conditions.

In this article, we explain the benefits of lymphatic massage, the people who may benefit from using it, and how they can prepare for and perform this type of massage at home.

While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport fluid through the lymph vessels.

Health conditions can interrupt the normal flow of lymph, causing lymph fluid to build up in a particular area of the body, often in the arms or legs, where it can causing swelling. This condition is called lymphedema.

People can develop lymphedema as a result of infections, cancer treatments that involve the removal of lymph nodes, and any condition that damages the lymphatic system.

Lymphatic massage can reduce swelling and improve circulation throughout the lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage usually forms part of a treatment program called decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT).

DLT for lymphedema includes:

  • lymphatic drainage massage

  • compression garments

  • exercise

  • skin care
