Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of optimizing health. Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Therapeutic massage can relieve pain, and in combination with other appropriate health care measures, can help heal certain conditions and prevent their return.

We provide the following massage therapy treatments:

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. … It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or “knots” (also known as “adhesions.”)

Relaxation Massage

When you experience relaxation massage, you can expect a treatment that involves: Long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing. Pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful. A treatment that is designed to soothe and relax you, not to relieve chronic pain or other underlying ailments.

Preganancy Massage

Pregnancy or Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a manipulative treatment that attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Connective tissues called fascia surround the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body.

Motor Vehicle Accident Massage

If you have been in an automobile accident, your doctor may prescribe massage as part of your treatment plan. Massage can address the stress that goes with a traumatic event like a car accident, and it can help address many of the sprains, strains, and other injuries common in a MVA.

Acupressure

Acupressure is a therapy developed over 5,000 years ago as an important aspect of Asian, especially Chinese, medicine. It uses precise finger placement and pressure over specific points along the body. These points follow specific channels, known as meridians – the same channels used in acupuncture.

In a sedentary age like the world we live now, the challenge for clinicians is to elevate awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyle – – including having a regular massage.

Body Restoration’s therapists practice various techniques proven to relieve stress in the mind and drive pain out of the body. Many of our previous clients said they experienced reduced of discomfort and muscle spasm even after their first session.

The hands-on treatment you can expect includes manipulation of the soft tissue structures of your body (muscle, skin and connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and membranes). Our massage therapists combine kneading, pressure, and percussion of the muscles with active and passive movement of the joints to relieve your tension and restore balance and posture.

When is Massage Therapy Required?
