Post-surgery scar tissue massage
Post-surgery massage can be done weeks or months after a procedure depending on the type and a doctor's release. We use cross-fiber friction to even out the tissues around the incision and reduce scar tissue. Flexibility and optimal function are restored as well as reducing the pain and shortening recovery. Ideally done during or after Physical Therapy.
We also treat a variety of ailments with medical massage and manual therapy including; arthritis, sciatica, lymphedema, tendonitis, and frozen shoulder.
Our sports massage is designed for performance. The strokes are broad and brisk to stimulate and lengthen the entire muscle and increase circulation. Paired with stretching, the joints are mobilized and flexibility is increased for optimal strength. This modality has an invigorating feel and will help prepare you for your sporting event.
We do a unique blend of muscle stripping and trigger point work to get rid of old scar tissue and adhesions. The pressure is varied with detailed focus as well as long strokes to stretch the muscles. Deep tissue is different for each client, we tailor the session to their needs. Increased circulation and improved range of motion are the goals of this modality.
A word about draping
We do a snug tuck of the sheet around the area we're working to keep the client comfortable. The sheet is never loosely draped and requests to undrape or expose inappropriate areas will not be tolerated per the Texas draping laws.
This specialized scar tissue treatment eliminates chronic and acute pain, limited range of motion, and nerve entrapments caused by postural issues or repetitive wear on the joints. It helps address pain from bulging or herniated disks by taking the pressure off the nerves with manual therapy and the use of a small tool that strips adhesions from in and around the disks.
Highly effective for those who struggle with tingling, numbness, or shooting pain in the extremities. Non-invasive and safe for any age or stage of life. Treatment times are 20-25 minutes and typically only require 4-6 weeks for a restored range of motion and reduced pain depending on severity.
