massage are hands-on techniques used by our Achilles MedicalCenter involving the manipulation of soft tissue effecting a change in the surrounding tissue and structures. It is a soft tissue treatment for acute and chronic injuries.
"Myo" is the prefix used to denote muscle and "fascia" is a strong fibrous connective tissue that supports and protects most structures within the human body. This muscle and fascial tissue can become restricted due to injury, inactivity or disease, infections as well as other causes. Restrictions in these tissues often lead to diminished blood flow, restricted mobility, muscle tension, and pain.Improving the restrictions in the fascia and its corresponding muscles is the focus of myofascial treatments conducted by our Achilles Medical Center.
Massage Treatment Can Aid In :
Decreasing myofascial restrictions
Releasing muscular tension or spasm
Improving circulation bringing in fresh oxygen and nutrients
Improving joint mobility
Enhancing lymphatic drainage and removing metabolic waste
