Can massage help me with chronic pain?
Massage therapists, with their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, are some of the best trained people to deal with myofascial and musculoskeletal pain syndromes. They spend many hours physically palpating and manipulating the muscles and soft tissue of the body. Whether it is lower back pain, arthritis, repetitive stress from computer use, or fibromyalgia, massage may be able to relieve the associated pain. In some cases, massage is the most effective tool to relieve symptoms.
What do I wear to therapy?
For men, we ask that you wear loose fitting shorts without a shirt.
For women we ask that you wear something that you would feel comfortable moving in, yet exposes the skin. Examples may be: shorts and a bra or sports bra, a two piece swim suit, or your bra and underwear.
We respect any special considerations that may arise and encourage you to speak to your therapists if you have any more specific questions or concerns about what to wear to therapy.
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral therapy is an alternative or complementary healing modality that uses gentle touch to manipulate the bones of the skull and the lower spine and pelvis. The technique was developed by an osteopathic physician and professor of biomechanics, John E. Upledger. Craniosacral therapy is intended to increase and normalize the flow of cerebrospinal fluid through the bones of the head, the spine and the pelvis, thereby restoring health to sufferers of a range of health conditions. Like traditional Chinese medicine, the healing method aims to remove blockages in healthy flow, which result in the manifestation of disease. However, instead of working energetically, craniosacral therapy works with the tissues and fluids surrounding the central nervous system.
According to craniosacral therapists, the treatment may relieve pain, joint problems, chronic fatigue, depression, hyperactivity and various diseases affecting the nervous, immune or endocrine systems. However, given the dramatic difference between a craniosacral framework and the scientific medical model, these results are not necessarily borne out by scientific trials. According to the American Cancer Society, the therapy has not been proven to treat cancer or any other disease, but may relieve stress and tension.
What is Lymphatic Drainage?
The lymph system is a network of vessels and lymph nodes supplementary to the body’s circulatory system that delivers nutrients to the cells and carries away excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses and toxins.
A therapist trained in lymph drainage stimulates the lymph system with extremely light, pumping movements across the skin and where there are high concentrations of lymph nodes. By stimulating the lymphatic system, the therapist helps drain puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body’s immune system, helps the body heal from surgery, and aids in the body’s natural waste removal or detoxification.
What is regional interdependence?
This refers to the concept that seemingly unrelated impairments in a remote anatomical region may contribute to or be associated with the client’s primary complaint. For example, a headache may be caused by or contributing to neck, hip or pelvic pain just as back muscle tightness or spasms can cause leg or neck pain.
