Massage is defined as the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the body. At Well Balanced, we offer Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy (MFTPT) as well as Complete Decongestive Therapy. Both of these specialized forms of massage used as a means to reduce muscle tension and fatigue in order to alleviate symptoms.
Myofascial trigger points are an extremely common cause of pain. Trigger points are painful when pressed on and can cause a shortening of the muscle fibers. Our massage therapists work to release the trigger point with compression while taking the muscle through its full range of motion. MFTPT helps to eliminate trouble spots and restore optimal function.
Our massage therapist our integrated into your treatment plan, directed by your primary care practitioner.. They work with patients to empower patients, so that they can continue to target areas of pain outside their sessions by using specific self compression exercises and stretching. We also look at perpetuating factors such as diet, posture and sleep to correct those things that undermine our ability to be pain and inflammation free.
