A Therapeutic Massage may be more intense and less comfortable, though pressure is always adjusted to meet your needs. It is especially important with Therapeutic Massage to communicate with your massage therapist if the pressure is painful or too much.

Therapeutic Massage is massage therapy that is used for therapeutic purposes: whether that is relaxation, pain relief, or injury rehab.

Therapeutic Massage combines a variety of massage techniques, including but not limited to Swedish (relaxation) Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Acupressure, and Trigger Point Therapy. Each therapeutic massage session is customized to meet your individual needs. Since your body has it’s own unique injuries and holding patterns, why would we offer a “cookie cut” massage? At the beginning of each session, your massage therapist will discuss your goals for that day.

Pediatric Care

Line separator

Children and teenagers have stresses and tension much like adults do. But, since children’s bodies are smaller than adult bodies, special considerations and adjustments need to be made.

PaulaKid.jpg

Considerations

Three things are always taken into consideration when massaging people age 0-18 years old.

01

First, the child will always be asked whether they would like to receive a massage. Their answer will be respected. This is important for teaching children about healthy touch and to respect their personal boundaries.

02

Second, the child should be aware of what is happening to them. Massage therapists will talk about the massage in age appropriate ways. Often times, children under the age of 12 do not know what the term “massage” means. We often use terms like “warm touch” to explain massage to kids.

03

Finally, the massage will be gentle. Children have more skin receptors per square inch than adults do and can easily become over stimulated. A Therapeutic Massage, or Myofascial Release session are the most appropriate for children and teenagers.

Scheduling

We will be happy to discuss pediatric care options and help find the best approach on a case by case basis. Because each child’s needs are unique, we will determine the most appropriate session length and frequency for your child’s unique needs.

A parent or guardian must be present during the massage for anyone under the age of 18.

Parents who would like to learn more information about pediatric massage therapy can contact our office for a consultation call with a massage therapist.

Myofascial Release

20220526_150055.jpg

The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach (JBMFR) is an effective hands-on technique that uses gentle sustained pressure to release myofascial restrictions in the Myofascial connective tissue. Myo(muscle) fascia(connective tissue). Myofascial Release treats the body as a whole (mind and body) rather than just the area of the body that is producing symptoms or pain. Paula VanBaalen, is the therapist at Ohana Therapeutic Massage that offers JBMFR.

  • Improved posture

Graston Technique®

Line separator
20220526_134246.jpg

In the healing process our body attempts to repair those areas by creating "scar tissue," much like the scar that forms on the skin where you have scraped or banged your knee.

In time, we can have a build up of this fibrous scar tissue, particularly in the muscles, tendons and ligaments that get a lot of use. This can lead to pain and dysfunction because this replacement tissue lacks the strength and flexibility of healthy tissue (in some areas it may even mat down and entrap a nerve).

The Graston Technique® (GT) allows us to better detect and treat these areas because it uses a stainless steel instrument that glides along a patient's muscle, tendons or ligaments, with the right amount of pressure to detect just where the scar tissue or restrictions are located.

When these knots or bands of scar tissue are encountered, both the clinician and the patient sense a restriction, almost like a speed bump or a granular feeling. The instrument can then be used to identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Stretching exercises are used to promote re-alignment of the fibers into the normal pattern of healthy tissue.

Patients usually receive two treatments per week for four to five weeks. Most patients have a positive response within two to three treatments. Most patients are not disabled and continue to perform their regular functions at home/work.

 

GT decreases overall time of treatment, fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery, reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication and resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent.

Myofascial Cupping

Line separator
20220927_121453.jpg

How cupping works

When the cup is applied, it creates a suction that decompresses the myofascial tissues. This increases blood supply to the area treated. It also increases fluid movement through the area. which assists in recovery of the tissues. The cup also stretches the tissues resulting in increased range of motion.

Benefits of Myofascial Cupping

  • Helps to reduce fascial adhesions

  • Relaxes the nervous system also known as your fight or flight response

  • Relieving scar tissue

  • Increase in circulation

  • Relieves pain caused by arthritis

  • Massage Warm up

  • Beneficial for pre and post surgery
