Injury Massage

Injury Massage Services

To some people injury massage may seem counter intuitive. This is because a natural reaction when something hurts is to tell people not to touch it. It is true that there are some injuries that are better left untouched, but the fact of the matter is that injury massage plays a vital role in speeding recovery for many injuries.

Injury massage takes a lot of variables into account. The massage therapist needs to take into account how the injury occurred and what part of the body was injured. This can give insight into which muscles have been injured or strained, and the massage therapist can begin the massage to help the patient start feeling better. Injury massage is beneficial primarily when the injury occurs to a muscle or a joint.

 

Types of Injuries That Injury Massage Can Help

Whether you are dealing with a broken bone, a sprain or muscle spasms, injury massage can help you recover faster. We all know that a massage can be relaxing, but did you know that there are certain aspects of a massage that can also help your body recover? Here are the ways that massage can help:

Breaking Down Adhesions

Adhesions (more commonly known as knots) are areas in your muscle that have become chronically contracted. We have the awesome ability to control the contraction of our muscles or at least that is usually the case. In some situations, your muscles can become involuntarily contracted, and if left untreated, it can remain in the contracted state. When a muscle is injured, the body triggers the other muscle fibers around the injury to contract. The purpose of this is to help the injury avoid further damage. Unfortunately, this tightness does not always go away on its own. This is where a sports injury massage can help the healing process.

Increasing Blood Flow to the Muscles

Your blood carries vital nutrients throughout your body. As muscles get tight, the blood flow is restricted. This also means that that the nutrients carried to the tight or injured muscles are decreased. This is the opposite of what you want to happen with an injury. As a massage therapist rubs your muscles, it triggers those muscles to loosen and draw blood to the area. This increases the vital nutrients that are being transported to the muscle which helps with the healing process.

Located in a room in a repurposed home - I was given good directions for finding it. The massage itself was very good and you can tell they have experience (my massage was with Sonny). She listened to what I wanted and followed through. I felt great.

Such a good massage! My husband schedule a half hour massage for me to give me a mental and physical break from my little baby. My only complaint was it wasn’t longer! It was the perfect combination of pressure and soothe that left me feeling utterly relaxed with all my tension and knots worked out. I would highly recommend!

I have been having pain associated with a pinched nerve. After one session with Katelyn it has improved dramatically. It was a clean, calming and relaxing environment. Scheduling was easy as well. I will definitely be booking an appointment again soon!

Went to this massage parlor for the first time yesterday and had a really nice experience! The masseuse did a great job of providing a relaxing and therapeutic massage! Pricing isn't bad either. I would go again.

I'm always hesitant to get massages. The last professional place I went to was a nightmare. (The girl who massaged me two times before I stopped going would talk to me the entire time about her life and problems as if I were a therapist and I'd end up more stressed.) Soni was, thankfully, nothing like that last massage therapist. She listened to what I said I needed and even provided stretches I can do at home to help with some of the tightness. My back is already feeling better! I'm so happy I found this place and already have another massage booked.

Really enjoyed my massage from Katelyn! She does a great job at adjusting the approach - meaning doing more relaxing or deep tissue based off of my preference. I highly recommend Calming Touch!

Extremely professional and wonderfully pleasant to work with. I was struggling with pain, having had numerous surgeries in the past, they worked through my physical issues with patience and diligence. Very knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend you try them out, if only for a release from the daily stress. Also of note, I called them last minute and they were able to work me in without making feel uncomfortable for asking for a favor, even as a new client. Just can’t speak highly enough of the quality of care I received.

Soni was amazing. I went to her after a rough pregnancy and delivery and was so knowledgeable and skilled at helping my recovery. I would highly recommend her for any kind of injury or orthopedic massage. It was the first time in months I didn't have any pain.
