Therapeutic massage provided at Hand of the Heart Massage involves a blend of modalities and techniques targeted at improving function, rehabilitation from a new or old injury or recovery from a recent surgery, increasing mobility in joints or muscles from overuse or repetitive motion injury. Our therapists have training in a variety of different approaches in applying therapeutic massage for the purpose of improving function. Some techniques include: myofascial release, trigger point release, deep tissue work, Thai Medical Scraping, active release approaches, assisted/resisted stretching, among others. Each therapist takes a recent history intake in order to tailor each session to the specific needs and progress being made in your journey of functional recovery.
While therapeutic sessions can involve a full body treatment, it can often be a focused treatment in the area involved in order to achieve the goal. We are passionate about educating our clients in use of self-care practices that include daily stretching, exercise and self-massage regimen to maintain results and improve your sense of well-being between treatment sessions. Healthy lifestyle and a diet low in inflammatory foods is always encouraged. Even small changes in habits can create big results.
