Medical Style Massage Therapy

This style of massage is very effective at relieving pain. But it’s also not a painful massage. The general rule for most conditions is that “more pain does not relieve pain”.

The body naturally tries to protect areas that have experienced pain and injury by contracting the tissues in those areas. This helps protect the area, but the tension remains even after the injury has healed. The continued tension causes pain that is due to the lack of blood flow through the contracted tissues. So restoring circulation must be done, but it must be done without causing pain to keep from triggering the protective response again.

Medical Style Massage Therapists application of manual techniques is very different from other styles and is very detailed. They receive more anatomy training than other styles so that they may be tasked with mobilizing specific tissues, as directed by medical doctors, in support of their treatments for their clients.

Once clients are pain free, there is some “core work” for this style that is really good to receive at regular intervals. This will help to maintain the muscles and flexibility in the spine, neck and hips.

 

Preparing for Your Wedding

You should be getting regular facials starting 6 months, or more, before your wedding.  This allows us time to draw out the imperfections.

This is also the time to get massage therapy.  A single massage can't remove the muscular tension from 6 or more months of exercise, dieting and stress.  This is another situation where "damage control" makes the most sense.
