Muscular Therapy 

Muscular Therapy is a bodywork system incorporates Swedish massage, deep tissue bodywork, and myofascial and friction therapies.Muscular therapy treats a variety of pain, injury, body perception and muscle tension problems. Techniques are used specifically to reduce scar tissue that accumulates because of injury to soft tissue structures in the body.

Orthopedic Massage

Orthopedic Massage is a therapeutic treatment approach to chronic pain and injury utilizing soft tissue manipulation.  This involves working on the actual site of injury with cross fiber friction techniques. After the friction, time is spent massaging the area around the injury to increase circulation and promote healing. If the injury is due to overuse or stress relaxing the entire person will be a part of the session.
