Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being.
The therapists at Wellcare must have many years of experience in therapuetic, medical and sports massage. Wellcare Massage can be used as an integrative part of your chiropractic treatment plan or as a stand-alone treatment.
Types of Massage:
Therapeutic Massage - Specific, therapeutic massage techniques are utilized to ease and relieve chronic muscular tension and discomfort. Pressure is adjusted based on client preference.
Sports Massage - Focusing on muscle, tendons and fascia involved in particular sports-related acitivies, these massage techniques are applied to improve flexibility, relieve injured areas, and reduce chronic discomfort from overuse.
Maternity Massage - Massage techniques are designed to reduce discomfort typically associated with growing pregnancies utilizing a specialized pregnancy cushion, which allows the member to relax in a comfortable positioning through the entire massage. These techniques are geared to reduce edemma, ease back aches and reduce exhaustion.
Lymphatic Massage - also known as manual lymphatic drainage, this form of gentle massage relieves swelling that happens when medical treatment or illness blocks your lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of your body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels.
Relaxation Massage - this massage uses lighter pressure than that of therapeutic or deep tissue massage. It's focus is to tone down muscles, improve lymphatic drainage and relax the body. Relaxation massage is a good choice for those who bruise easily or require a lighter touch.
