Remedial Massage helps maintain and/or improve your health regarding following conditions :
Limited range of motion ( A joint that you cannot fully extend or bend)
Surgical and injury rehabilitation
Back and neck pain
Breathing problem (asthma, COPD..)
Swollen limbs due to cancer treatment, injury, lymphatic system issue ( Lipedema / lymphedema )
For acute and severe problems I reserve the right to refuse to treat you and send you seek support to other health specialists.
If we both agree to work together for several sessions, I will do my best so that your issue may soon belong to the past.
Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system (i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels, etc.).
Common MSDs include: tendonitis : inflammation of a ligament. It can affect any joint but most commonly your wrist, fingers, elbow, shoulder and neck.
Limited range of motion
Factors limiting range of motion can be the following Swelling
Torn tissue (causes block in joint)
Manual Lymph Drainage, special belly massage to activate your natural digestion process, relaxation of your adductors are part of the treatment.
3 to 5 regular sessions are necessary to see lasting change. It may be necessary to change your diet and include physical exercise in your daily life.
Techniques and tools used
(some of them)
The cup I use are silicon based.
I have 4 little ones for your face.
I apply oil on your skin and then glide with them along your spine.
It's an efficient way to release fascia adhesion, improve blood circulation, relax your nervous system.
I also leave them on a spot for up to 20 min but usually more like 5 min.
Especially on your lower back or shoulder blade area. It's a great and efficient way to improve massage therapy.
It can leave marks on your back.
Those mark are not dangerous and will disappear in 1 to 5 days.
It hurts but it hurts "good".
Muscles can develop small areas that are painful to touch and when pressed can reproduce symptoms of the pain you currently experience.
Like headache in your eyes and stirn area can come from trigger points in your top shoulders (trapezius muscle)
Or hip and lower back pain can come from trigger point in your Illiopsoas muscle, a deep hip flexor accessed through your belly.
Tennis Elbow can be treated with trigger point therapy.
When receiving a trigger point treatment : Breath right into the pain. It helps your body to relax and the tension goes away quicker.
