Medical & Therapeutic Massage
Medical or therapeutic massage is a deeper type of massage that works with the different layers of muscles, connective tissues, and muscle adhesion to relieve a variety of conditions including chronic pain, reduced range of motion, or if it’s just harder to get out of bed in the morning. This type of massage is also used by many elite athletes as an essential part of their training and recovery routine. In fact, the sports massage performed by MyoTechnology helps athletes train more effectively, improve performance, prevent injury, and recover more quickly.
By applying mechanical pressure to the soft tissues, muscles are more flexible and blood flow is improved which reduces heart rate, blood pressure, and cortisol levels. Most patients report a feeling of pure relaxation, reduced anxiety, and improved mood and find a competitive edge in these psychological benefits as well.
MyoTechnology employs a scientifically based method of medical and orthopedic massage therapy that utilizes a clear understanding of the biomechanical principles of physiology that affect connective and soft tissue healing and treatment. A research and outcome-based massage therapy approach, both established and cutting-edge techniques and methods, are then utilized to treat pain, injury, and disorders. Each patient’s physiology is compared against the physiological effects of a treatment modality in order to choose the most effective therapy needed to normalize the movement of the musculoskeletal system and restore structural balance.The variety of techniques used to help re-establish balance within the body include:
- The Camara Myofascial Method
- Vibration and Percussion Therapy
- Tool-Assisted Myofascial Release
- Sports, Deep Tissue and Relaxing Therapeutic Massage
- European Lymphatic Technique
- Prenatal & Postnatal Massage
- Facilitated Stretching
- Active Release Technique

- Reflexology and Athletic Performance Enhancement
A variety of other physiotherapy modalities are also employed in concert with these techniques to deliver complete healing at the cellular levels including Hyperbaric Mild Oxygen Therapy; Class II and IV Laser Therapy; Metronome Therapy, Kinesio Taping, Whole Body Vibration Therapy; Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Microamperage Neural Stimulation; Cryo and Moist Heat Therapy; Percussion Therapy, Manual Traction and Ultrasound.
