Injury management starts with
INJURY PREVENTION!

Therapeutic/Orthopedic Massage

Minimize injuries by breaking up adhesions and maintaining joint mobililty through preventative massage. Massage increases the flow of blood and nutrients to the muscle and helps repair small tears due to strenuous physical activity. It also keeps tissue loose so that different layers of muscle slide over each other. When combined with cupping therapy, frequent sessions provide optimal performance and help minimize the risk for serious injury. 

There are several key elements to Therapeutic/Orthopedic Massage: 

  • Reduces Pain:  Massage helps with pain from spasms and cramps. A body in pain is a sign of overworked muscles. Massage increases blood and lymph fluid flow, thereby speeding the injury rehabilitation process.

  • Reduce Scar Tissue; Massage influences the excretion of certain fluids necessary for tissue repair.

  • Motion and Flexibility: Massage can help relax overly tense muscles and provide additional flexibility.

  • Shortens Recovery Time: Massage increases blood flow and lymph fluid, both assisting in the body’s natural healing process, speeding waste removal and general health improvement. Swelling and inflammation associated with physical activity is also reduced. Scar tissue, normal from a severe injury, can be lessened with massage.

  • Supply of Oxygen and Nutrients: Blood flow into muscles is vital to creating new tissue and increased strength and stamina. Massage increases blood flow for additional oxygen and nutrients.

  • Psychological Benefits: The body is only as strong as the mind, so having a strong mind that is relaxed and focused is a definite healing advantage.
