Integrative & Remedial Massage
Massage is available to treat a wide range of physical, functional and, in some instances, psychological symptoms by manually manipulating soft tissue in the client’s body.
Target tissues can include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints or other connective tissue, in addition to lymphatic vessels, and/or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
Massage can help reduce swelling and promote lymphatic drainage. It can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows and forearm.
Integrative Massage is the application of specific treatment protocols targeting a specific problem the client presents with. It is the practical application of several hands on techniques to treat the specific area of a client’s dysfunction during a massage session.
