A Medical Massage may include one or a combination of the following modalities.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum and spinal column. CST uses noninvasive and gentle pressure on the head, neck and back to relieve pain caused by compression.
It’s thought that through the gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spine, and pelvis, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system can be normalized. This removes “blockages” from the normal flow, which enhances the body’s ability to heal.
Visceral Manipulation is work on the internal organs and any dysfunctional fascial connections between them or with the skeletal structure.
Myofascial Release is the releasing of scar tissue, no matter how old, including surgical scars, removing adhesions, and releasing connections made from overuse, extended use or acute exceeding of muscular activity, or sudden force to which the body fascia naturally tightens, the softening of which may not be soon enough.
All of the benefits of a regular massage, plus:
- The intent is a cure, not just alleviation of the symptoms.
- You will move easier, everything will function better.
- “Ah-hah!” moments when you find out why something is happening.
- “Old age” does not apply, you can regain the flexibility of the younger you.
- The body will heal if given the chance. You get that chance.
- If you want, you’ll learn more about how your body works.
This is not a full body massage, the work will be focused on the affected body part and all connections, be they tissues, the organ system, nervous system, meridians and anything stressing that affected body part.
I will be working to find and remove the cause, not just easing the symptoms.
The longer you’ve had an issue, the more it may be buried under compensating body systems, in which case medical massage is like reversing the clock. Multiple sessions may be needed.
There will be talk and questions during the session, this is not your regular relaxation massage.
You will never be told to “live with it”.
You may be given suggestions on what you can do to reduce acute episodes, usually stretches.
The intent is to heal, permanently, and not to keep you as a repeating customer.
