Types of Massage Offered in McKinney

DEEP TISSUE
Deep Tissue Massage is a great method to reduce a patient’s overall stress level, and has been shown to help reduce musculoskeletal pain. Deep Tissue Massage aids in reducing scar tissue within the musculoskeletal system, and in return increases range of motion.

The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine published a study in 2008 showing a reduction in blood pressure and heart rate after receiving a deep tissue medical massage.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE
Myofascial Release helps to break up and reduce trigger points, which reduces overall muscle tension and increases range of motion. Myofascial Release also increases circulation, thereby reduces soreness and speeds up recovery from exercise and training. Muscle adhesion and scar tissue are reduced, which increases elasticity of muscle and improves range of motion. Overall, Myofascial Release helps to decrease the overall effects of stress on the body.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Lymphatic Drainage is a lighter technique with specific motion and intentional direction of motion, used to promote lymphatic flow and reduce tissue inflammation. It promotes lymphatic movement, or drainage, and encourages detoxification of the body, which relieves congestion of the body and helps sinus problems and sinus related headaches. Lymphatic Drainage encourages relaxation due to being such a gentle technique.

PREGNANCY
Pregnancy Massage is a combination of many techniques based on the patient’s needs. Prenatal Massage can be used to reduce pain or discomfort, manage swelling of the lower extremities, promote relaxation, and reduce stress during pregnancy.

SPORTS
Sports Massage tends to be a combination of Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage, and Trigger Point Therapy. Sports Massage is used to speed up the recovery from training, and is also valuable in the treatment of chronic and acute injuries.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger Point Therapy is a specific treatment using the Myofascial Release technique, in which ischemic pressure is used directly on the trigger point to help break it up.

ELDERLY
Elderly Massage is a lighter technique due to the fragility of aging skin, and can be performed either laying or in a massage chair. Elderly Massage is used to provide relief from aches and pains in general, as well as those associated with less activity.

YOUTH
Youth Massage is great for kids playing competitive sports, as many have less than ideal diets and hydration habits, yet they push themselves harder everyday. Youth Massage is also used to for repetitive injuries and chronic muscle tightness/soreness, and multiple techniques are used based on the patient’s needs like Sports Massage. Youth Massage helps with recovery related to training or practice, general soreness, improves lymphatic drainage to reduce swelling, and can lessen the risk for injury.

HANDS & FEET
Hands & Feet Massage treats the two areas we abuse and neglect the most. Many patients suffer from tightness of the hands and feet, so our massage therapists use Myofascial Release to strip out the adhesions. Hands & Feet Massage is very beneficial in treating and reducing pain associated with plantar fasciitis, and general soreness, aches, and pains of the feet.

CHAIR
Chair Massage is used for patients with mobility impairments prohibiting them from laying on a massage table. Most massage techniques can be performed with the patient in a massage chair.
