Repair Style Massage Services

Regardless of the type of massage you receive, whether repair, maintenance, or relaxation, you will experience the benefits of all three to some extent. Simply being touched and having the soft tissue manipulated in any way can relax your system and facilitate repair. The body has amazing restorative capabilities, and the focus of the massage will depend on your primary goals.


Repair Massage: Transforming Soft Tissue Dysfunction

Repair style massage, also referred to as clinical or medical massage, is a targeted approach meticulously crafted to address and rectify soft tissue dysfunction. Its primary objective is to retrain muscle memory and restore tissues to a healthier state.

The Repair Phase:

Tailored Appointments for Effective Retraining

1 / Frequent Sessions:

Initially, appointments are scheduled closer together to aid in the retraining process.

2 / Progress Monitoring:

As symptoms lessen in intensity and frequency, the frequency of appointments is reduced.

3 / Transition to Maintenance:

Gradual spacing of appointments until reaching the maintenance phase.
