What is a Massage?

There are many types of massage and each have a purpose, depending on what your needs are.

At Conquer Health Alliance, our massage therapists work with people to reset their bodies, rebuild dysfunctional movements with exercise prescription, and rethink beliefs around pain and movement.

We know pain is not simple and is often multidimensional. By changing how we move and think about pain we can start to make positive lasting changes.

Types of Massage we offer

Our massage therapist may use one type or a few types of massage to relieve your pain and discomfort.  Below are some popular types of massage we offer.

Relaxation

A basic massage designed to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and tension. This massage makes the perfect gift for someone who you think has earned some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Remedial

Targeted treatment with the aim to help reduce pain and increase your physical function by using clinically proven techniques. Each remedial session will start with a quick consultation and a thorough assessment to locate the cause of dysfunction or pain. Several techniques maybe used with this treatment such as Trigger point therapy, stretching and Myofascial release. While this treatment can be relaxing, the overall goal is to restore function and reduce pain in specific areas.

Myotherapy

This is an active modality that involves the client taking their health and wellbeing into their own hands. Just like a remedial treatment, each session will start with a comprehensive assessment to gauge the client’s ability. Myotherapy facilitates and encourages clients to take their first steps toward self-efficacy in pain management using proven strength and mobility exercises. Myotherapy compliments remedial massage perfectly as it empowers and strengthens clients physically, so they can maintain their lifestyle.

Dry Needling

This is a fast and efficient treatment that involves the insertion of a filament needle into the location of a trigger point. A trigger point is a hyper irritable area in a muscle that is painful upon compression and when compressed can produce referral pain or a sensation that is felt elsewhere. Trigger points are commonly found in overworked or fatigued muscle and can reduce muscular flexibility, strength and endurance.
