Maintenance massages are especially important for athletes. They do regular body work to help maintain healthy muscles and to improve someone’s performance overall. Many athletes choose to incorporate massage into their conditioning schedule as it helps them to experience less stiffness and soreness as well as recover faster from more grueling workouts. Wellness or maintenance massage can also help improve overall performance in weightlifting or sports activities. It also can prevent conditions that may lead to more serious injuries. Best of all, it promotes a good sense of well-being and wellness, which is our goal at True Balance Massage.
Similar to sports massage, this massage therapy modality focuses on relieving soft tissue and muscle pain and dysfunction as well as a variety of injuries. This massage therapy uses three processes: clinical musculoskeletal assessment, deep tissue, and fascia massages, and stretch training. This massage has healing benefits and can restore the body’s balance and reduce acute pain as well as improve flexibility.
Those who would benefit the most from an orthopedic or sports massage are those with chronic pain, sports injuries, shoulder or rotator cuff injuries, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, bulging/ herniated discs, progressive joint arthritis, sciatica, and other joint pains. This modality is also particularly helpful for people who have not found sustainable relief with other types of bodywork.
Deep Tissue Massage
This is a popular type of massage that is quickly becoming the most requested massage in spas and wellness centers. The technique uses a variety of techniques that help to break down soft tissue adhesions (knots) and alleviate pain as well as decrease stress and anxiety. This type of massage can be combined with many other types of therapeutic massages, such as myofascial
Deep tissue massage uses slow strokes and firm pressure to reach deep layers of muscle and connective tissue known as fascia. This is commonly used for chronic pain such as stiff upper backs or necks as well as leg muscle tightness, sore shoulders, and lower back pain. It can also benefit those with muscle tension throughout the body, limited mobility, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and osteoarthritis.
Deep tissue massage is meant to break up scar tissue and break down muscle knots that can cause circulation problems and limited motion, and inflammation. At the beginning of this massage modality, an Aurora massage therapist uses lighter pressure as a warm up to prepare the massage. As the massage continues, stripping (gliding pressure along the muscles) and friction are applied throughout the body.
The therapeutic alliance is a relationship between a massage therapist and a client. It is the goal of the licensed massage therapist to engage with their client to provide wellness and beneficial results from their massage therapy. This alliance focuses on tasks, goals and bond. Tasks are what the therapist and the client agree needed to be done to reach the goals of the treatment. Goals are what someone hopes to gain from the massage therapy treatment.
Lastly, bond forms from the trust gained for the work done to help the client to reach their goals. This is the main focus of our massage therapists, to help our clients to achieve the goals they want and deserve by using massage services.
Before we begin your massage therapy session, we take a thorough case history so that we will have a better understanding of your needs and the areas that need massage therapy. We then formulate a treatment plan to help you heal faster and alleviate any pain or discomfort. Finally, we perform one-on-one massage therapy sessions with our clients in comfortable rooms.
Thai Massage is great for those stiff or sore due to arthritis or exercises. Unlike other massages, this massage is performed when the client is fully clothed and usually on a padded mat on the floor, here at True Balance Massage, we perform Thai massage on the table, to allow the practitioner to access more mobility and range of motion through the joints. This massage uses rocking, pulling, and stretching techniques rather than gliding or kneading.
Our massage therapist uses her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move the client into a series of different yoga-like stretches while applying compression, joint mobilization as well as acupressure. This type of massage helps to correct deficiencies, blockages, and imbalances in the flow of energy in the body. This massage type benefits those with different types of back pains, tension headaches, joint stiffness, circulation issues, chronic fatigue, tense muscles, and nervous system disorders the best.
Myofacial release is a therapy that is gentle, effective, and safe that produces results. Inflammatory responses in the body as well as trauma or surgery can cause myofascial restrictions that cause pressure and pain. The goal with this massage type is to return a client back to a pain-free lifestyle. It benefits clients with back pain, whiplash, sports injuries, disc problems, migraines, neurological dysfunction, pelvic floor dysfunction, chronic fatigue syndrome, jaw pain and TMJ, and much more.
Neuromuscular or Trigger Point
With our neuromuscular massage treatments, we can pinpoint stiff muscles and the location of your pain or stiffness. This massage type focuses on locating and releases trigger points and tight muscles. The goal is to find the source of the pain and to release the muscles to lower inflammation and in turn, pain. Trigger points are knots in the muscles that when they are compressed created localized pain. The source of this pain may stem from imbalances in the nervous system, and the trigger point is just waiting to be released.
This massage modality can help with back, neck, and shoulder aches, headaches, carpal tunnel, herniated discs, scoliosis, knee, hip and other joint pain, spasms, cramps, strains, and postural distortions among other ailments.
