Orthopedic Massage

Orthopedic Massage is a specialized form of manual treatment that combines techniques from many therapeutic traditions. These techniques include the facial release of connective tissue, transverse friction and muscle energy techniques. The goal of orthopedic massage is to dissolve adhesion’s and normalize the position of the soft tissue and release its torsion, lengthen the connective tissue, hydrate the joints, and release the entrapment of peripheral nerves. Orthopedic massage is an extremely efficient and effective method of therapy.
