Massage therapy is the treatment of soft tissue (i.e. muscle and connective tissue) used to reduce pain, and release barriers that limit joint motion and optimal function. Myofascial release and deep tissue massage engage these barriers, and can be appropriate for individuals with the following conditions:
The massage therapy techniques and pressure used during your treatment will be appropriate for your tolerance and condition, and support your wellness and therapeutic goals.
Prior to your session, your massage therapist will review your health history as well as any notes available on care you are or have received at Innova (if applicable). Providing a complete and accurate health history will enhance your massage therapy experience.
At the beginning of your session, your massage therapist will ask you about what you are experiencing, and identify ways in which regular massage therapy may be of benefit to you. With your heath history and therapeutic goals in mind, they will provide you with options for treatment including different techniques and depths (pressure) for treatment.
Patients are typically undressed and covered by sheets and a blanket for treatment; however, you have the option to be partially dressed, or fully dressed if you choose. You will be professionally draped during treatment, and your massage therapist will always ask your consent prior to treating sensitive areas such as the front of the neck, chest wall, inner thigh and buttocks. Our priorities are to ensure your comfort and safely during treatment, while giving you the best care possible.
