Remedial massage is usually a more specific, targeted massage. Most times, the RMT will start with an assessment to try and determine what is causing or contributing to the pain or problem. Remedial massage is done with a goal in mind, and is often carried out through multiple sessions, reassessing at each one to determine if there has been improvement or deterioration. Pressure can range, depending on what is required to achieve change, but if a client has a preference to pressure, they should ALWAYS communicate that with their RMT.
Myofascial cupping uses silicone cups instead of traditional glass cups. The cups are compressed and suctioned to the skin, creating a negative pressure that brings more blood flow and fluids to the region. It also softens tissues and makes them more pliable and supple. By increasing microcirculation, and promoting healthy blood flow, it helps remove toxins and waste from the body. This can be very helpful post workout and/or post injury.
It is also very beneficial in breaking down adhesions and unnecessary scar tissue, and making the myofacial (aka connective) tissue more flexible, leading to better overall movement.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation! Now, that's a mouthful! Using rigid tools, often made by metal, bone or glass, to work into the soft tissue. Helpful in breaking down old, unneeded scar tissue of an old injury and regaining some flexibility or freed motion. IASTM is also a beneficial technique used to stimulate the body's healing response, and is often used on fresh injuries, as well as reoccurring stress injuries. Have an old nagging injury? Perhaps an avid runner with some tired and sore legs/feet?
Kinesio Tape is a flexible tape applied to the skin. It’s designed to mimic the skin’s elasticity so you can use your full range of motion. The tape’s medical-grade adhesive is also water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for three to five days, even while you work out or take showers. When the tape is applied to your body, it recoils slightly, gently lifting your skin. It can be used to add support to weak zones, help correct posture or improper mechanics, re-educating muscles, and treating injuries.
Thai yoga massage is a unique and powerful massage therapy, combining acupressure, gentle stretching and applied yoga. Thai massage has its roots in India's Ayurvedic system, and is influenced by Buddhism. It is considered the physical application of loving kindness, or loving kindness meditation in action. Thai Yoga massage is done while clothed, on the floor. The client is stretched into different positions and pressure is applied using thumbing and palming techniques. The particular sequence used has a focus on feet, legs, and hips but also addresses the whole body. Clients will be most comfortable to receive Thai yoga massage in loose fitting clothes designed to move in, such as Yoga or gym clothes.Book Now
