The body is intended to self-heal, but factors like lack of sleep, stress, chemical toxins and pain often hinder our ability to rehabilitate. Our unforgiving environment makes self-rejuvenation a challenge. Whether you want to energize, self-repair, or simply relax, SpineWise provides you with a comprehensive and personalized massage wellness program to achieve maximum benefits of massage.
At SpineWise, our Registered Massage Therapsists offer the following types of massage therapy:
A massage technique which employs manipulation of muscle and muscular exercise which increases circulation; providing more blood to the muscles and flushes out lactic acid and detoxifies muscles.
A deep tissue technique that helps to recover ligament, muscle, and tendon injuries. This technique of slow and controlled movements upon your skin draws fluid through your blood vessels. Stretching, friction of tendons and ligaments, and deep manipulation of muscles, help replenish blood flow to damaged muscle tissue. Sports massage also helps to cleanse tissue from lactic acid and aids the muscle and tissue to absorb additional amounts of oxygen and nutrients.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is effective because of its technique – slower, stronger, more focused massage that stimulates deep into muscles. Individuals who expose their muscles to intensive daily conditioning and activity will benefit from this technique. Deep tissue massage will noticeably loosen muscles, alleviate pain, and increase mobility. Sufferers of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, edema, muscle cramping, and even carpal tunnel syndrome may find significant relief from deep tissue massage.
Prenatal massage has been proven very effective to reduce discomfort and stress during pregnancy, thereby helping to regulate the body’s immune system. During pregnancy, the muscles, ligaments and tendons loosen and soften. This causes additional stress on a woman’s hips, pelvis and ankles. Prenatal massage assists in alleviating stress in the weight bearing joints and realigns posture and body mechanics.
TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE
Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the applying of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Muscles are then gently stretched and applied with Swedish massage to complete the relaxation process. This type of massage therapy examines and treats muscles and muscle attachments in layers. It addresses surface muscles and connective tissues, deeper ligaments, and connective tissues which may offer relief from headaches, neck stiffness, carpal tunnel like symptoms, tennis elbow, bursitis, frozen shoulder, back pain, low back stiffness, sciatica, and even shin splints.
DEEP HEAT MASSAGE
Deep heat massage is a relaxing technique which has many healing properties. The use of deep heating hydroculator packs combined with soothing oils, blended with Swedish massage, softens connective tissue. This approach allows the therapist to give a deep, penetrating massage. Additionally, the heat will open pores, and prepare one’s skin to better absorb massage oils. The use of heat is also a great way to increase circulation in and around the area being massaged. Increased blood flow will help clear out toxins and assist in healing an injured or strained area.
Shiatsu is based on the traditional Japanese technique meant to balance your “Qi” or vital energy. It creates equilibrium between energy meridians and the vital points along the body, encouraging your system to heal itself. Shiatsu also utilizes stretching, weight counterbalancing and traditional massage techniques, to improve flexibility, energy, circulation and postural integrity to promote the movement of the body’s energy or life force along the meridians to unblock energy and to reintroduce the optimal flow of Qi.
