Massage Therapy Techniques

Massage therapy has been around for many centuries. During the earliest years of its history, massages were focused on relieving pain, improving circulation, loosening tight muscles, reducing stress, trigger points, and creating an overall sense of well being. Today, when you want or need a massage, you could choose from literally 80 different massage therapy types with a range of movements, pressures, and techniques.

Below is a list of our Vancouver massage therapy treatments that ensure our clients receive the best care possible.

Swedish Massage Therapy

Swedish massage is a technique that uses long strokes, kneading, and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles with active and passive movements of joints to increase awareness, relaxation, and blood flow. It is often used initially to warm up tissues in order to perform deep tissue work.

Swedish Massage Therapy has been used as a way to relax and soothe since the early 19th century. Its popularity has risen steadily over the years because of its ability to deliver soothing, relaxing movements to the muscles and soft tissues without causing injury.

With so many uses, it is no wonder that Swedish massage therapy is used by millions of people worldwide. Its healing benefits are many, and this form of massage therapy is a healthy and safe alternative to pain medications and surgery. It is important to consult with a qualified therapist before getting this type of massage therapy to ensure that you receive only safe treatment that will help you achieve the best results possible.

Sports Massage Therapy

Sports massage is a therapy treatment that helps improve sports performance and decreases the risk of injury. It helps you improve endurance and flexibility before and after events or workouts. Athletes often receive deep tissue massage, which targets the muscles used in athletic activities. It is great for those who want a treatment that combines the classical Swedish style with trigger point release, compression and neuromuscular techniques.

A sports massage therapist is specially trained to relieve sore and pulled muscles while also treating injured and overworked muscles. These therapists can also apply heat and ice to reduce swelling and inflammation. The goal of a sports massage therapist is to improve an athlete’s performance, muscle energy and lessen the risk of injury. It is an excellent way for athletes to manage pain and discomfort that often occurs with intense physical activity.

A skilled sports registered massage therapy professional will also be able to quickly assess an athlete’s needs and suggest the best course of action for his or her individual treatment.

Myo-Fascial Release Therapy

Myofascial release is a therapy that releases restrictions, adhesions, and tension in the connective tissue layer. Connective tissue is a network of tissues that connects every muscle, tendon, ligament, bone, and organ in the body. Connective tissues can hold memories of physical trauma. When these restrictions and adhesions are released, the client is able to release their physical, as well as energetic or trauma-based pain. Cranial sacral therapy and visceral manipulation work very well with myofascial release therapy.
