Medical Massage Therapy

Colorado Springs Medical Massage Therapy provides professional therapy services in and around Colorado Springs, CO. Medical Massage Therapy is one of the special modalities offered.

Medical Massage is a medically focused therapy providing corrective, rehabilitative and restorative benefits to the soft tissue.  Soft tissue includes muscle, fascia, tendons, adhesions and the joint capsule. 

Medical Massage is ideal for persons with pain or chronic pain, auto, sport or other injury, repetitive motion conditions or just plain ‘can’t figure it out’ situations and more!  It helps you have a happier body and an increased quality of life.

In Medical Massage, the soft tissue is addressed through a postural analysis identifying which muscles are tight or injured, causing compensation and/or the conditon(s) in question.   This postural analysis becomes the roadmap used in the therapy session to facilitate correction.  Each session begins with the postural analysis.

Next, specialized Medical Massage techniques are administered to help the patient recover.  The techniques address the following:  adhesions (scar tissue which can create constriction and lack of muscle flexibility leading to pain), pain points (which can cause local and phantom referral pain), tight muscles (released through neuromuscular, multi-directional stretches, restoring brain-body function and mobility/, joint and muscle pain/tension/swelling (releasing muscles and their attachments to relieve pressure, restore blood and oxygen flow and remove toxins; a source of pain).  Energetic modalities are often found to enhance the results of treatment.  In most cases, four sessions help to unwind the compensation patterns that develop and lead to underlying causes of the problem, providing scientific and measurable results.  A discounted 4-pack is available to those interested in pursuing the 4 session option.

Medical Massage is performed as a cash pay modality.  In some cases you may be able to use your health savings account.  Check with your administrator as to whether you qualify.

Once again, Medical Massage is a corrective, rehabilitative and restorative massage therapy modality.  It is ideal for persons with pain or chronic pain, auto, sport or other injury, repetitive motion conditions or just plain ‘can’t figure it out’ situations!  The results may help you have more enjoyment in life!

Myofascial Release Massage

Colorado Springs Myofascial Release Massage Therapy provides professional therapy services in and around Colorado Springs, CO. Myofascial Release Massage Therapy is one of the special modalities offered.

Myofascial Release Massage Therapy is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain. Myofascial Release Massage Therapy is also a useful modality to use in conjuction with rehabilitaion therapies as in the case of injury or sprain/strain.

 

Neuromuscular Therapy

Colorado Springs Neuromuscular Therapy provides professional therapy services in and around Colorado Springs, CO. Neuromuscular Therapy is one of the special modalities offered.

Neuromuscular Therapy is another name for Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” in your body.  

Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle tissue rather than along the energy pathways of the body.  

These ‘knots’ are built up throughout a person’s life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress.  During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points.  This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.

 

 

Reflexology

Colorado Springs Reflexology provides professional massage therapy services in and around Colorado Springs, CO.  Reflexology is one of the special modalities offered.

Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet.  Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body.  According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into the feet.  

 

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Colorado Springs Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy provides professional massage therapy services in and around Colorado Springs, CO.  Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialty of massage therapy.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy or Lymph Drainage Massage is a form of very light massage that encourages lymph flow in the body.

*Our customized lymphatic drainage therapy is a specialized 3-part approach for those recovering from liposuction surgery, including 360, BBL, fat transfers and more. 

The results lead to accelerated recovery through encouragement of repair to your traumatized tissue, reduction of stagnant and built up fluids, reductions in size of your compression garments and the noticeable reshaping of your physique to your desired new look!

First, we work to restore your muscular system to it's optimal function. The muscles of the body are responsible  for manually stimulating and properly guiding your stagnant lymph fluids through your lymphatic system and ulitmately out of your body. 

Second, we stimulate the body's production of the natural chemical ATP, which is the food for the mitochondria or 'brain' of our cells. This helps enhance your cellular recovery.

Third and lastly, we check and restore to balance the 'pumps' of your lymph system which are your lymph nodes.  Once your body has been properly prepared with these initial steps, we then gently, and manually move your lymphatic fluids to their destiny, the 'lymphatic drainage terminus' behind your collar bones, where your body can more easily carry them to the venous system of your body and out through your elimination channels.

Be sure to click the 'Contact Us' link on the homepage for more information on these steps or to request this treatment.

The lymph system is a slow-moving system of vessels and lymph nodes that are intended to be manually moved by our muscles.  The lymph system is supplementary to the body's system of blood circulation. The lymph system both delivers nutrients to the cells and carries away excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses and toxins.

A lymphatic drainage therapist trained in lymph drainage massage stimulates the lymph system with extremely light pumping movements. By stimulating the lymphatic system, the therapist helps drain puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body's immune system, helps the body heal from surgery, such as liposuction, and aids in the body's natural waste removal or detoxification.

The lymphatic system is located directly beneath the skin, so the pumping movements are very light. Manual lymph drainage should have a very soothing, relaxing effect. It can be used in helping to recover from liposuction surgery or as a whole body treatment.

Postpartum Pregnancy Massage Therapy is performed within three days after a normal vaginal birth.  If you have had a C-section, the wait is 10 days.  This modality helps the mother deeply relax and 'catch up' in her system from pregnancy, the birth process and fatique from interrupted sleep.  It is a profoundly soothing massage using lavish amounts of specialized oil that deeply penetrate the tissues to create a settling effect upon the mother's delicate nervous system, making it easier to recover from the birth process.  

It is recommended that the mother receive this rejuvenation therapy daily for up to 6 weeks postpartum.  This style of massage is based in the Ayurvedic tradition (Eastern India) which is one culture that addresses this special recovery time for new mothers and provides a system for her recovery within 6 weeks postpartum.  This therapy is perfomed in the mother's home while the baby is being attended by the caregiver.  That way, the mother is uninterrupted as she enjoys the deep rest and rejuenvation that is so critical at this special time of her recovery.

It is also recommended that the mother learn Infant Massage and perform this modality on her baby daily, as it helps baby adjust to the new environment and to sleeping longer through the night...as a result, it helps mother sleep longer at night, creating less fatique in her day.
