We’ve proudly partnered with Green Massage Therapy, which offers the most advanced therapeutic strategies to relieve, and ultimately correct, patterns in the body that lead to pain and deterioration. Green Massage Therapy’s qualified staff provides customized therapies to help you reduce pain, avoid invasive surgery and get back to what you love to do.
Green Massage Therapy’s customized work combines elements of trigger point therapy, myofascial release, facilitated stretching and the gliding, stripping and kneading techniques often associated with Swedish massage. Each session is tailored to your body’s particular needs on that day. All sessions are done on a massage table, with clients undressed to the limit of their comfort and draped during the entire session. Oil/cream is used for many techniques. Popular services include:
This covers a range of different treatments aimed at preparing an athlete for an event, helping them recover from an event and maintaining performance levels during a season. Sports massage techniques work to clean out fatigued tissue and bring healing cells to muscle bellies, break up adhesions, minimize scar tissue, relax muscle spasms and optimize contractile strength and reactivity.
Deep Tissue Massage
This describes any modality that intends to affect soft tissues through deep pressure applied to muscle bellies, ligaments and tendons. Typically deep tissue massage is used as a way to differentiate Western work from spa massage or Eastern modalities like Reiki, Shiatsu and Thai massage. Sports massage, myofascial release and Swedish massage all could be incorporated into a deep tissue massage.
Myofascial Release Therapy
Fascia is a connective tissue that wraps around muscle fibers, muscle bundles, blood vessels and nerves, and separates what it enfolds from the surrounding tissue. When fascia is healthy and free of adhesions, it allows adjacent tissues to glide past each other unencumbered. Over time, tissues accrue small and not-so-small injuries that are healed with scar tissue, which binds fascia to adjacent tissue and causes abrasive spots along the surface of tissues moving past each other. Myofascial release gently but insistently works to smooth and release adhesions, leading to greater freedom of movement and fewer injuries.
