Known as one of the most powerful deep tissue massage therapies and designed as a complement to physiotherapy treatments, this type of massage therapy focuses on specific parts of the body using acupressure, trigger points, myofascial, and soft tissue mobilizing to alleviate muscle pain and tension. It increases flexibility and range of motion and supports your current physical therapy treatment. By applying great pressure on the body, this type of massage targets the deep layers of muscles and connective tissues to stretch the structures and release adhesions/bands of rigid muscle (knots). It promotes the circulation of oxygen and nutrients to the muscle and decreases the amount of metabolic waste in the muscle that causes pain and reduces the limited range of motion that prevents healing.
Downtown Health & Physiotherapy has designed an orthopedic massage therapy series that addresses specific muscle imbalances associated with joint injury and pain.
