Sports massage: athletes and sports people frequently suffer muscle injuries and strains. Sports massage is the technique that combines petrissage and effleurage techniques to allow free blood circulation between the injured muscles and the heart for faster muscle recovery. At Chris Scott Wellness, we understand that sports massage can cause more damage if done the wrong way, and hence we always strive to ensure that it is done as per the doctor’s recommendation.
Couples massage: we have provision for couple’s massage where people who wish to undergo therapeutic massage for stress management can have their massage session side by side. As the body relaxes, they can also deal with the emotional or psychological issues causing a strain on their relationship.
Deep tissue massage: if you have deep muscle and tissue pain, we will apply the deep tissue massage therapy to deal with the pain. The technique entails the use of slow strokes and friction across the muscles. It addresses painful muscles, chronic postural problems, and repetitive strain. The pressure applied is more intense than that of other medical techniques.
Temporal mandibular joint treatment: if you undergo a dental procedure that leaves you with sore jaws, visit us for temporary mandibular joint treatment. The technique applies point release, muscle stripping, and kneading to relieve pain without necessarily having to use pharmacological interventions.
Prenatal massage: pregnant mothers experience a lot of changes in their bodies, which can cause a lot of discomforts and sometimes, pain. Prenatal massage is customized to help the mother relax, and get relief for backache and swollen legs without using medications.
Swedish massage: we combine five basic strokes mainly effleurage, petridage, friction, vibration, and tapotement. In other words, there are long strokes, kneading, wringing, rocking, and percussion movements. The Swedish massage is ideal for full body relaxation for someone recovering from injuries.
Myofascial release massage: it is an alternative massage therapy that improves skeletal muscle conditions by enhancing mobility and relieving pain. The treatment improves lymphatic and blood circulation, while enabling the muscles to stretch in reflex. It applies gentle pressure, and the technique is ideal for patients who have lost their mobility.
Stress-less massage: for patients recovering from or undergoing treatment for anxiety and depression, insomnia, stress, and chronic headaches, stress-less massage is the technique for them. It helps shake off stress by assisting the body in refocusing its energy for useful purposes. For more effectiveness, the method combines aromatherapy which is the use of essential oils which are either absorbed through the skin or inhaled to help the muscles relax.
Medical massage combined with regular exercises and healthy diets help speed up the recovery process. Visit us at Chris Scott Wellness, and we will help aid your recovery through medical massage techniques.
