IASTM - Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Massage with Hot Stones

Hot stones are used as tools to stimulate deeper muscle tissues, as well as break down built up connective tissue.

 

The heat of the stone causes muscles to relax, allowing your therapist to sink deeper into affected tissues.

 

The density of the stone also allows accurate and effective targeting of deeper structures made of connective tissue (ex. joint capsules) or connective tissue that may have built up around an injury and that needs to be broken down to facilitate healthy joint and muscle movement.

Offered exclusively by Dean RMT.

Thai Floor Massage

Thai massage is performed with the you, the client, wearing flexible clothing, lying on a thick mat on the floor. Pillows can be used to bolster for comfort.

 

Your therapist will assist you through a series of passive stretches and yoga poses. Using their hands, feet, and legs as their tools, your therapist will manually roll your muscles over the bones in order to lengthen your muscles, decrease your pain, and revitalize your energy. 

 

Because this ancient practice uses little to no oil and you remain clothed, it can be an ideal treatment for those seeking manual therapy in the middle of their workday. It's also perfect for those who need a deep stretching session, which can sometimes be difficult to achieve on a massage table.

Kinesiology Taping on a client's knee

Kinesiology Taping

RockTape is brand of kinesiology tape which is manufactured so that it stretches in one direction and not the other. This creates a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism that lifts the skin away from the soft tissue underneath, allowing more blood to move into an injured area to accelerate healing and recovery. When applied over a stretched muscle, RockTape lifts the skin, increasing the amount of oxygen available to the muscles, which reduces fatigue. RockTape can also be appleid to promote lymphatic drainage. 

 

Clients report reduced pain when RockTape is applied after a treatment, as it continues to promote a sense of stability. RockTape can also be utilized during pregnancy to support the low back and abdominal regions.

Offered exclusively by Julie RMT.
