Massage


Manual techniques applied by therapist:

  • Effleurage
  • Deep tissue
  • Sport massage
  • Soft Tissue Release

Forms of massage (+ myofascial release) that can be performed by the patient:

  • Foam roller
  • Intracell Rolling Stick/Tiger Tail
  • Pinkie Ball

Soft Tissue Release (STR)

Manual therapy technique ; uses a combination of pressure and a stretch through multiple planes of movement to stretch/lengthen muscle and connective tissue .


This combination is very effective for:

  • Stretching muscle and connective tissue
  • Decreasing scar tissue
  • Decreasing joint stiffness
  • Decreasing pain
  • Increasing venous and lymphatic drainage

Electrotherapy


Ultrasound (U/S)

  • Sound waves used to penetrate soft tissue in order to break down restrictions (ie. scar tissue) and relax tissue with thermal effects.

Interferrential Currents (IFC)

  • Gate Control Theory: overrides pain sensation with pressure (sensory stimulation).

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

  • Similar concept to IFC however the sensation is noticeably stronger in comparison.

Example of ultrasound in water used to remove bruising.

Myofascial Release

Manual therapy technique; stretches connective tissue or fascia at both superficial and deep levels using translations, stroking, and rolling techniques.

Effective to restore mobility, decrease pain, improve movement and performance, and improve mechanics, circulation and function.


Patients are taught how to properly use devices to maintain progress achieved from athletic therapy treatment sessions.

Proprioception Programs

When injury occurs, our body protects/splints itself from harm. In doing so, our spatial awareness fails to provide us with the appropriate reflexes/reactions in our daily routines.

Retraining your body to react and adjust to various stimuli reduces the length in recovery with focus on balance and core strength.


Balance exercises can be used for a variety of injuries and conditions to improve overall function.

Injury prevention & Education

Educate clients about their injury

Understand proper biomechanics (how your body moves) to prevent re-injury.

Posture re-education

Sports psychology: overcoming psychological barriers caused by injury.

Sports nutrition when increasing physical activity.

Activity specific rehab programs customized to needs of patient.

Home programs accelerate recovery time.

Neuro-Proprioceptive Taping

Used as an aid to provide support to patient in-between treatment sessions; allowing the patient to focus on performing daily activities and home rehab program with minimal restrictions.

Applications can be used to activate, relax, or reduce swelling to soft tissue lasting 3-5 days of relief for patient. Neuro-proprioceptive tape is made of cotton with minimal sensitivity to adhesive, durable, and water resistant.

Prophylactic Taping, Support & Splinting

Taping an injured area can help to reduce movement in painful ranges but allow an individual to continue with their activities (within reason) with less discomfort.

Cupping Massage

By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping therapy lifts connective tissue, releases, rigid tissue and loosens adhesions. Cupping pulls stagnation, waste, and toxins to the skin level where it can be easily flushed out by the lymphatic and circulatory system.

Cupping techniques bring blood flow and nutrition to stagnant areas. The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing deep relaxation throughout the entire body.

Gua Sha

Tools of variable shapes and sizes that are used to release adhesions and scar tissue in muscle and fascia (the saran wrap-like covering holding your muscles together under your skin) improving range of motion and overall functional capacity.


Western therapies use similar scraping techniques originating from Gua Sha such as:

  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)
  • ASTYM
  • Graston Techniques
