Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a highly effective technique for treating musculoskeletal issues, including strains and sports injuries. It can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and pain, particularly in the neck, back, joints, and muscles. With more people working from home due to Covid-19, deep tissue massage has become increasingly popular for promoting overall wellness and rehabilitation. At One Branch Therapeutic Wellness, our Registered Massage Therapists are here to advise you on the best treatment plan for your needs. Reach out to us for accurate information and to prioritize your wellbeing.

Stroke

A stroke is a medical emergency caused by disrupted blood flow to the brain, leading to brain cell death. Symptoms include headache, numbness, loss of coordination, and trouble speaking or balancing. Registered Massage Therapists can help reduce localized pain and disability by using massage techniques and exercises. They can also provide stretches to prevent cramping.

Neuromuscular Technique

Neuromuscular Technique targets “trigger points” to alleviate pain and spasm cycles. This treatment aims to restore balance between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems by addressing biomechanical dysfunction, postural distortion, poor blood flow, trigger points, and nerve compression.

Swedish Massage Therapy

Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue Massage are two popular therapeutic techniques. Swedish massage focuses on relaxation and increased blood circulation through long strokes and kneading, while Deep Tissue Massage targets chronic pain and inflammation by manipulating deep tissues. Although pressure is increased in Deep Tissue Massage, both techniques require a skilled therapist to provide effective care tailored to individual needs.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects the immune and nervous systems, causing muscle weakness, balance issues, and vision problems. While the exact cause is unknown, genetics and environment may play a role. Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) can provide relief through deep tissue massage, improving circulation and range of motion, and offering strengthening exercises.

Lower Back Pain

Experiencing low back pain? You’re not alone. Up to 80% of people will have it at some point. Non-specific low back pain is common and often caused by trauma, strain, or poor posture. Registered Massage Therapists can help reduce pain, decrease muscle spasms, improve function, and provide exercise programs. A recent study found massage to be more effective than active controls for pain relief.
