- combine it with providing patient education and exercises

- customize a Rehabilitation plan
A plan if treatment will be recommended including exercises or stretches and additional massage sessions, if needed.
Massage Treatment Techniques
Myofascial Release helps the body return to its original state as muscles begin to repair and cause less pain. Myofascial Release is a form of bodywork using long stretching strokes that seeks to rebalance the body by releasing tension in the fascia/connective tissue.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue Massage targets deep layers of muscle and tendon, helping to release chronic muscle pain. Deep Tissue massage is a technique that releases chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on contracted areas, either following or going across the grains of muscles, tendons and fascia.
Swedish Massage increases blood circulation, encouraging faster muscle repair. Swedish massage is a system of long strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movement of the joints.
