Integrative Clinical and Massage Therapy Services

We offer different types of soft-tissue therapies, to meet different types of goals. 

Fascial Link Therapytm

Fascial Link TherapyTM is a method of releasing tight or restricted muscles, connective tissues, and ligaments along Fascial LinkTM lines.  It is a form of pain-relieving neuromuscular therapy that includes balancing posture thru working closely with fascia, tendons, and related energy systems.   Fascial Link Therapy uses more than one point at a time in order to release painful or tight tissues.  This dual-release method reduces client discomfort and pain during the treatment and achieves a faster release of pain patterns than treating each area separately.  Fascial link charts show where the dual release technique is applied.

Exactly what is involved? 

Fascial Link Therapy is a hands-on therapy used by massage, physical and occupational therapists, chiropractors, and other health professionals to address muscles and tendons along nerve pathways that talk to each other.   During the treatment, muscles are warmed up to increase circulation and prepare tissues for more specific work.  As the Dual Release Technique and other Fascial Link Therapy techniques are applied, neuromuscular response patterns such as pain, numbness, tingling, or referred sensations are closely monitored and addressed.  These neuromuscular responses guide a Fascial Link Therapy session. 

A Fascial Link Therapy practitioner will look for compensation patterns throughout the body, and address the body's natural tendency to tighten additional muscles or fascia to balance posture.  These compensation patterns are laid out in Fascial Link lines. (Learn more with our Fascial Link Charts.) As the nervous system makes adjustments, the Fascial Link therapist adjusts as well.  In this way, therapist treats cause and compensation patterns quickly and effectively, matching the neuromuscular responses of each client to restore balance.


Massage Therapy for Stress Reduction & Self-Care

Swedish massage (the most commonly taught type of massage in the U.S.) and Acupressure (based in techniques from China) may be used to create a relaxing, rejuvenating experience.  The focuses here are to flush and drain the body - increasing circulation to the skin, muscles, and organs, and to relieve minor discomforts.  Sometimes, hot packs or lightly scented oils may be used.   Suggestions for healthy habits and stretching packets for the individual are often included.

Massage Therapy for Injury Treatment and Prevention

Neuromuscular, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point therapies are oriented toward pain relief, postural balancing, and reducing tension.  They may be used in simple pain relief cases, or in the long-term pain relief of conditions like:  

  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Tendonitis
  • TMJ
  • Whiplash
  • Stress & Migraine Headaches
  • Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
  • Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
  • and other muscle related problems.

How long the problem has been there, and what type of prior care it's had may affect recovery time.  Please ask about the timeline involved in eradicating or limiting your muscle problem.  Some conditions heal very quickly.  Others take more time.  Some may be covered by insurance.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

This is a gentle and relaxing lymphatic drainage technique used to reduce swelling.  It may be used for chronic lymphedema, or for periods following surgery or injury to improve circulation of lymph and speed healing significantly.

 Discover the Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage!  Lymphatic drainage can be used for many valuable purposes, including:

  • Recovery from injuries or surgeries, as it speeds healing through improved removal of wastes, increased nutritional flow to cells, and better joint lubrication.

  • Improved sports recovery and performance, by improving flow of joint fluid, speeding removal of water and lactic acids, increasing nutrition to cells and joints

  • Sinus and cold/flu relief through improved flow of the fluid that helps fight allergies, viral and bacterial infection, and other common sinus problems.

  • Recovery from breast cancer surgery, other cancers or chemotherapy.  (Physician clearance required.)

  • Relief from menstrual discomforts - enjoy less cramping and better overall energy with lymphatic drainage therapy just before or during a period.

  • Detoxification.  Some clients report that they have less discomfort during menstrual cycles when lymph drainage therapy is performed just before or during this natural detoxification process that women experience about once a month.

Massage Therapy for Pregnancy

Coping with stress and fatigue, easing aches and pains, and learning self-care techniques is healthful and enjoyable during a normal pregnancy.  Massage therapy for the childbearing year is a wonderful way to relax, increase energy, and relieve discomfort. 

Sports Massage Therapy

Sports massage can increase an athlete's rate of recovery (approximately 30%, some figures show), improve performance, improve mental focus, and decrease risk of injury.  It may address conditions such as low back pain, golfer's or tennis elbow, sprains, and strains.  Orientation is toward maintaining health and performing at your best.
