Massage Therapy Techniques


Therapeutic Massage

A combination of multiple techniques to achieve relief of muscular tension, which is very effective. It can best be described as relaxing and not as aggressive as a deep tissue experience. Although massages can be very relaxing, it can also assist in changing postural alignment, recovering from surgery, and managing chronic pain. Our ability to assess the person as a whole allows us to identify the appropriate style of massage for the individual. We have a staff of highly trained therapist who have the skills to safely work with a variety of physical ailment and diseases.

Myofascial Release

When you’ve experienced tension in your body, but have had minimal results with previous massage or deep tissue work, it is usually because your muscles are tight and the fascia is bound up. This work can be gentle, but is incredibly effective.  “Unwinding” the tight fascia in the body can release the tension you’ve been feeling. Fascia is a fibrous connective tissue your ligaments and tendons are made of.  It is also what holds everything in place inside your body and is present throughout your entire body.  This particular style of myofascial release was and continues to be developed by John Barnes.

Pregnancy Massage

Your whole body is changing to accommodate the beautiful life growing inside you. This means your hips are moving, your lower back is carrying more weight, and your feet are tired and starting to swell at the end of the day. You deserve to enjoy this time in your life, and we will make sure you feel as wonderful as you should with all the extra stress and challenges that comes with pregnancy.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Trigger points are points in a tight muscle that can be painful and create a larger sensation in the area surrounding ( or even a distance away ) from the origin point of where a therapist or yourself presses into a muscle. Trigger point therapy can help if you are having a spot in your back, for example, that feels tight and also has a feeling of pain, tingling, hot, or pinching kinds of sensations to name a few. Many people find relief from this because of the way it helps the muscles relax and targets specific points of pain to help manage the symptoms people are experiencing, using varying depths of pressure and durations of time to create relief.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep Tissue is exclusive to the experienced massage client. It is the deep manipulation of skeletal muscle and its associated connective tissues. When you have deep tension and severe knots causing headaches and numbness, a deep tissue massage can break up muscle fibers to release the build of toxins and lactic acid that’s causing so much discomfort. As recommended after all massages, drinking plenty of water and a detox bath is essential for post-massage recovery.

SPORTS MASSAGE

Are you having a hard time keeping up with or achieving your fitness goals? Sports massage is designed to increase range of motion, help your muscles recover from demanding physical activities like cycling, weight lifting, and any sport or intense workout regimen. We provide safe assisted stretching to go beyond your maximum flexibility, as well as break down the adhesions that are gluing your muscles together and restricting your movements. This leaves you free to run faster, stretch farther and lift more easily.

Swedish Massage

Swedish is the basic relaxation of muscular tension. This is perfect for those wanting to relax and get out from under lingering stiffness. With my smooth touch and flowing motion, you may even fall asleep on my table! You will leave de-stressed and ready to enjoy the rest of your day.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

If you have just had surgery, deal with chronic inflammation, swelling, or edema, lymphatic drainage massage could be very helpful for keeping the pain that comes along with those situations at ease. There are a few different types of lymphatic massage, but for the most part lymphatic massage can be quite gentle and relaxing. Usually performed with very light and gentle touches, it can be soothing, especially when the therapist begins to stimulate the lymphatic movement. Some of the more common uses for this technique is if you have just had cosmetic surgery of many types, surgery from an injury or ailment, a sprained or swollen ankle, and for the many other injuries or inflammatory issues.

"In 2018, I underwent shoulder surgery and hip replacement surgery. After surgery I had difficulty walking and painful tingling in my arm. One month after surgery I begin weekly massages with Isaac along with physical therapy exercises. Within 2 months I was walking with no pain and the tingling in my arm was completely gone. The weekly massages greatly contributed to the healing process and also helped with the pain, stiffness, and muscle tightness. I would not have been so successful with these major surgeries without the professional care and support I have received from Creating A Sustainable You."

"Had an absolutely great time with Kaleigh for my reiki session. She was very comforting, professional, and personable. She walked me through the process, told me little parts that she added that made it a little more personal, and even gave me an extra Oracle pole at the end of my session. Would definitely go again, would suggest to anyone who was interested in doing reiki!"

"I highly recommend Creating a Sustainable You. After a 60-minute massage, you will walk out with your muscles as soft as melted butter! Not only is it relaxing and healing, but the massage therapist will also give you valuable information on how to improve your health and wellness."

“I thoroughly enjoyed my massage session with Josh. I'm a big advocate for massage, but i'm 5 months pregnant and wasn't sure if I'd be able to get comfortable or if he'd be able to access deep tissue with me laying on my side. I was very happy with how it all worked out. He propped me up with pillows and was able to rub/work my back/neck muscles really well despite me laying on my side. It felt incredible and I left feeling great and woke up the next day feeling great. It seemed like the best way to work out pregnancy-related soreness in my hips and tension in my back due to increased weight of the baby/pregnancy. Since it was my first prenatal massage and my first time working with Josh, he communicated with me throughout the massage to ensure I was comfortable and getting the most out of our session. I will definitely return for additional sessions as long as my growing body allows."

"I always have a great experience. I have worked with both Emerald and Candi. I feel comfortable sharing my feelings and issues with them free of judgment. Also, Candi is the best massage therapist I've ever encountered. She seems to know exactly what issues to deal with."

- Joe M. - 

"Very professional. Everything that was done was clearly explained which made me comfortable that my therapist knew what he was doing. I look forward to another session. I am confident I have found a kep component in the road back to wellness"

"My massage with Isaac was awesome. My shoulder has been killing me and he spent a lot of time working on it and helping me gain back some mobility that I had lost. Creating A  Sustainable You is a gorgeous, clean and very well-run business. I will definitely be back!"

- Jamie N. - 

"I love this place. Everyone that works there is incredibly friendly and efficient, Isaac is the nicest and most effective massage therapist imaginable, and I am not going to need carpal tunnel surgery that the orthopedic surgeon told me I needed because of deep tissue massage, myofascial release massage. Highly highly recommend."
