What is Integrative Therapeutic Massage Therapy?
At The Anatomy of Wellness, our staff are not your average therapists. We have specific training in assessment, orthopedic massage therapy, cupping, kinesio taping, stretch therapy, and corrective exercise. We incorporate the therapies that will best address your treatment goals.
Your Integrative Therapeutic Massage begins with a personalized assessment, helping to identify the cause of your pain. Because we assess before we treat, Integrative Therapeutic Massage sessions are highly focused on the unique cause of your soft tissue pain.
We use the appropriate techniques to work towards specific outcomes which may include trigger point therapy, myofascial release, deep tissue, cupping therapy, kinesio taping, PNF stretching, joint mobilization, use of a Hypervolt, and addressing posture dysfunctions.
For our clients on a treatment plan, we spend time creating a Home Exercise Program to solidify results from bodywork in the soft tissues to make a meaningful change. For chronic pain, research shows movement must be addressed in a treatment plan so you don’t get stuck in the cycle of temporary improvement and the return of pain.
Our therapeutic massage sessions can also be utilized for athletic recovery and relaxation. Or perhaps you’d like to address a pain complaint and have some time for some Swedish relaxation massage. We can do that, we are here to help! Because we encourage an environment in which our clients and therapists can keep an open line of communication, we can tailor a session for your exact needs.
We want to offer an experience where our clients get a high level of personalized attention from our specialists. Our clients become our family. We are not a day spa and do not script your session, give cookie-cutter treatments, charge a membership fee, or play pan flute music! We are a non-nonsense, result-oriented practice.
We Utilize a Variety of Techniques
Integrative Massage Therapy can treat many issues:
Massage therapy tailored to your specific condition is highly effective in treating back pain and stiffness. A common cause of back pain is muscle imbalances caused by poor postural habits.
Injury, wear and tear or postural distortions may be affecting the anatomy of the neck. Clinical bodywork can stimulate the healing process and reduce pain.
Carpal Tunnel is frequently misdiagnosed. Massage helps identify where the nerve is entrapped in your particular situation and free it, reducing or eliminating symptoms altogether.
Pain stems from a compressed nerve in the lower back. However, the sciatic nerve can also become impinged in soft tissue which causes sciatic-like symptoms.
Other Conditions We Treat:
- Rotator cuff injury
- Ankle sprain
- TMJ disorders
- Carpal tunnel symptoms
- Pulled/strained muscle
- Tennis elbow
- Nerve entrapment
- Plantar Fasciitis
