The envelopes of the muscles (fascias) can retract as a result of an accident, injury, trauma, repetitive movements or poor posture. At Osteo Médica, Therapeutic Massage focuses on realigning the layers of muscle and deep connective tissue to relieve tension, pain and contractions.
A SUCCESSION OF DYNAMIC AND DEEP TECHNIQUES
Our massage therapists use a series of massage techniques (effleurage, kneading, stretching) to dissolve tension and strengthen muscles and joints. Fascias are interconnected from head to toe, and their retraction in one part of the body can affect other parts. At Ostéo Médica, our massage therapists work not only on the painful part, but also on the connected parts.
Therapeutic massage is more targetted and requires that the body segments related to the symptoms and the muscle chains involved be massaged.
