Definition of Therapies

T-Massage & Bodywork of Roswell incorporates a wide variety of different  treatment modalities to benefit your healing process: 


Ortho- Bionomy
Ortho- Bionomy is a very effective System of Positional Release Technique, that restores natural alignment in the body. Ortho-Bionomy is recognized worldwide for its simplicity, gentleness and long lasting benefits in relieving pain, increasing range of motion, flexibility and injury recovery.  It has it's roots in Osteopathy and Martial Arts, and is designed to work with the body to activate the innate self-correcting physical- and energetic reflexes. Ortho-Bionomy is performed while the client is fully clothed, but can also be incorporated into Massage Therapy sessions. 

Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular therapy is an advanced form of manual therapy and requires knowledge of the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular- and skeletal system. It is designed to relieve painful areas (knots) within the muscle belly through static applied pressure. Often knots in the tissue are myofascial trigger points (highly irritated points) which can refer pain or other stimuli to other areas of the body. 


Deep Tissue
Deep Tissue massage involves more pressure and is often applied with elbows/forearms to reach deeper muscle tissue below superficial muscle groups. Especially athletes and clients with chronic pain might require this form of therapy to loosen up tense muscles, adhesions and create more fluidity within the soft tissue.  

Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is the most common type of massage in the West, and is the preferred style for relaxation and stress relief. Applied strokes can include long gliding, kneading, tapping, cross fiber or vibration. Swedish is helpful to increase circulation and maintain healthy muscle tissue. While it is more superficial than other massage styles, it is still very beneficial in decreasing pain and overall tightness, and is especially recommended to clients who are more pain sensitive or simply just need to relax.

Sports Massage
Specifically designed for the athlete, Sports massage is recommended before and after sport events. Sports massage before the event specifically focuses on preparing the tissue by supporting muscle fiber growth via cross fiber strokes. Regular Sports massage enhances athletic performance, endurance and can prevent injury. Post event Sports massage focuses on lengthening the muscles with elongating strokes and stretches. Massage also aids in circulation, which speeds up the healing process by bringing nutrients and oxygen to the affected areas.


 TMJ Treatment

TMJ treatment brings great relief in conditions of teeth grinding & clenching, trouble opening jaw or painful when chewing foods, headaches or ear pain. Treatment involves all muscles of mastication, including intraoral massage, as well as head-, neck- and shoulder treatment. Often times more invasive therapies/ surgeries can be avoided by regular TMJ massage care.   


Reflexology
Reflexology is based on a system of reflex areas in the feet and hands that corresponds to specific areas in the body. Treatment involves applied pressure with thumbs or knuckles to related areas in the hand/feet. This therapy allows for treatment of certain areas of the body, which would be otherwise contraindicated to perform (for example in the case of large burns). 

Myofascial Release
Every emotion and trauma is stored within our myofascial tissue, which can reflect our everyday life through our actions and movement. Myofascial release facilitates the unwinding of armored past experiences through superficial and light movement of the fascia, bringing about greater joint mobility, overall well being and improved self awareness. It’s very common during treatment for emotional experiences to surface, sometimes even days after the session. Myofascial release treatment is often indicated in clients who are very pain sensitive, before more deeper layers of tissue can be treated. Myofascial release can be applied fully clothed or incorporated for specific areas during a massage session.


Reiki

Reiki is a form of Universal Energy and can only be applied by an attuned practitioner.
The healing system of Reiki has been adopted into many hospitals all around the world. Here it is used in conjunction with conventional medicine to speed up the healing process: Reiki is applied for pain management (post- and pre surgery), cancer treatment and depression. Various double blind studies on Reiki have shown its effectiveness in acute as well as in chronic conditions.
It is believed that Reiki originated thousands of years ago in Tibetan Buddhists, but it was rediscovered in the 1800’s by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan, who opened up various Reiki healing centers and trained & attuned many individuals.
Although Reiki can be described as a “hands-on energy healing technique”, it can also be applied through distant healing sessions, without the healer being actually present.
Reiki energy works not only on the physical body, but also on the mental, emotional and spiritual level and can help in any illness. It is believed that Disease is first caused by an imbalance on the spiritual/ emotional or mental level, before it manifests in the physical body as sickness.  Reiki encourages self-healing by strengthening the life force energy (Immune system, Chi, Prana etc.), while releasing energy blockages and creating harmony on all levels.
Reiki has absolutely no negative side effects and can be used in conjunction with conventional or other alternative treatments. But Reiki is no substitute for urgent medical care!
