Massage Therapy

At Revive Injury and Wellness, we practice many different types of massage. Below you will find descriptions of the different techniques we offer.

Medical Massage- This type of massage is specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed by a physician. Physician referral is required for this type of massage. We use a variety of modalities and techniques dependent on the condition being treated. Specific goals and results are measured to determine progress.

Supportive Care Massage- This type of massage is directed by the patient and the massage therapist. Supportive care massages are designed to decrease muscle tension, improve circulation, rejuvenate, refresh, and relax our patients.

Cupping- Cupping is a negative pressure technique. Instead of pushing into the tissues the skin and superficial muscle fascia is drawn into the cup to provide release. 2 types of cupping used are stationary and mobile or gliding. Traditionally cupping is done with an open flame and a glass cup. The flame burns out the oxygen in the cup creating a vacuum and the cup is place quickly onto the skin. The plastic pump suction system helps control the amount of suction on application and during the treatment. Treatment is always done with oil or lotion to help create a good seal and for comfort.

In early treatments cupping will most likely leave discoloration of the skin. As the tissue is drawn into the cup, toxins and stagnant blood are drawn into the subcutaneous layer where lymph will eventually take it away. Marking can last anywhere from 3-10 days but most marks are gone in about a week. Multiple treatments leave less and less discoloration and typically after 3 treatments about 2 weeks apart there is no more “bruising”. A persons skin color also factors into the amount of discoloration that can appear. Very light skinned people will usually have more discoloration than darker skin. Discoloration is not a sign of an effective treatment!

Prenatal Massage- This type of massage is designed for soon to be mothers who are having aches and pains due to pregnancy. Muscle are worked in a way that is safe and comfortable for both mother and baby. We use a special pregnancy pillow that enables women to lay face down no matter how far along she is. Common conditions we treat during pregnancy are low back pain, edema, foot and leg cramps, abdominal discomfort, stress and tension. All our massage therapists are trained in prenatal massage. We do not recommend massage therapy for mothers in their first trimester.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage- A very gentle technique used to decrease the buildup of edema, drain lymph (excess liquid), and increase blood flow. This massage method is beneficial for patients with all types of cancer and any condition that causes swelling.

Trigger Point Therapy- A specialized therapy used to treat hyper irritable knots known as myofascial trigger points. These tight points often cause referral pain in nearby areas but are the root of the issue. This is a very focused and effective deep tissue technique that targets the origin of these reactions in the body and work to release trigger points.

Temporomandibular Jaw Massage – this type of intra oral and external work focuses on the muscles that open and close the jaw. Gloved hands are used on the insides of the mouth to release tension. This can be an effective treatment for teeth grinding (bruxism), headaches, clenching, and jaw pain.
