Therapeutic Rehabilitative massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress to promote health and wellness.Therapeutic Rehabilitative massage therapy improves functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.
It involves modalities and techniques used to facilitate neurological function through “Muscle Energy Techniques (MET’s)” that include Reciprocal Inhibition & Contract-Relax methodology.
The goal of the Therapeutic Rehabilitative massage is to induce a change in the structure and function of the neuro-musculo-skeletal soft tissue to promote healing. Some of the important clinical effects are to increase new tissue cells to promote repair and healing of injuries, promotes fluid exchange of blood, lymph and synovial fluids to increase nutrition and oxygenation of the tissue, normalizes the function of muscles by reducing hyper tonicity in the muscles and strengthening weak muscles, establishes normal neurologic function in the soft tissue, mobilizes restricted joints and promotes healthy cartilage, and so much more.
This is to be considered your “maintance level” of care and recommend routine follow-up either weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly to receive the fullest beneficial results for your care!
