What can you expect from Massage Therapy at VOR?
A Massage Therapy treatment at VOR may include:
Swedish Massage Therapy
Techniques to improve circulation and reduce swelling, promote relaxation, calm the nervous system, and loosen muscles.
Fascia connects everything in the body. When fascia gets tight it becomes more difficult and painful to move. Massage Therapy can help relieve tension in the fascia.
Helps to increase joint movement with less pain so you start to move better.
Trigger Point Release
Trigger points are tight bands in a muscle that can be painful when pressed on and can refer pain to other areas of the body (ex. headaches). By treating trigger points and releasing the tension in a muscle, pain can be improved.
Reflexology uses acupressure points in the hands and feet to help heal other areas of the body, including the organs, by calming the nervous system. Betty is our Massage Therapist who practices reflexology.
Stretching and Home Exercise
At the end of your massage, our Massage Therapists can show you proper and safe exercises to promote better movement and function.
Cups are placed on the skin to create suction which moves blood, breaks down scar tissue and softens tight muscles.
These can help break down scar tissue and promote healing after injury.
Hot Stone Massage
Heated smooth stones are placed on the body to massage with the comfort of light pressure. The heat from the stones helps with relaxation which is very helpful if you have a new injury or a very tight muscle.
MPS can treat trigger points and acupuncture points without the use of needles! Check out our Pain Management page.
There are a lot of beneficial techniques that our Massage Therapists can use to make you feel better. Before each massage, you will have a discussion with your Massage Therapist about what your areas of concern are and what goals you have with treatment. We will design a treatment plan specifically for you!
Did you know our Massage Therapists can also provide TMJ and pregnancy Massage?
The jaw carries a lot of stress and loosening the muscles and ligaments around the jaw can help people who carry a lot of tension in their jaw. Check out our TMJ page.
Aches, pains, and stiffness are common in pregnancy. We can help you make your pregnancy as comfortable as possible. Massage can help with sciatic pain, swollen wrists and ankles, hip pain, back pain, and leg cramping.
