REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage therapy involves manual manipulation of the muscles, joints, and soft tissues of the body. Through the use of various techniques, Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) assess and treat the body's areas of dysfunction, with the main goal of returning the body to its natural functioning state.
TYPES OF MASSAGE THERAPY OFFERED AT MYOMOVE
THERAPEUTIC & SWEDISH MASSAGE
Therapeutic and Swedish massage techniques can be used to help alleviate pain, treat and reduce symptoms of many conditions, including but not limited to:
rotator cuff injuries, piriformis syndrome, carpal tunnel, plantar fascitis, bursitis, headaches, stress, postural imbalances.
Cupping Therapy is the use of silicone cups and suction to increase blood flow to a targeted area. It can help further reduce areas of tension, increase reduced range of motion, help break up scar tissue, promote circulation and more. Many patients see an increased tissue release when they add Cupping Therapy to their massage treatment.
Prenatal massage is extremely beneficial for any and all aches and pains that come along with carrying a baby. Massage can help with: round ligament pain, low back pain, swelling, sciatic, piriformis syndrome and more.
All RMTs at MyoMove offer sidelying position or tummy-lying position with breast and belly cutout pillows and tables.
Infant massage can be extremely beneficial with many obstacles that new babes face, including but not limited to: constipation, tongue, lip, or cheek tie stretching and rehab, colic, torticollis.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
Hot stone massage is the use of basalt stones (which retain high temperatures of heat) over the tissues with Swedish massage techniques to alleviate pain and tension. The deep heat from the hot stones penetrates the tissues deeper than that of just manual massage.
