TECHNIQUES & TOOLS

The human body is never uniform and often presents with different types of aches and pain. Our practitioners will use their expertise to apply the appropriate techniques and tools based on your body’s ailments. Below are some of the techniques and tools found in our virtual tool box. 

Learn more about each one by clicking on the technique or tool listed below.

Thermotherapy refers to the application of moist heat for the purpose of increasing the cutaneous, intra-articular, and core temperature of soft tissue with the intention of improving the symptoms of certain conditions. These include increasing local blood flow, metabolism, edema, and tissue extensibility or decreasing pain and spasms.

Cryotherapy refers to application of cold for the purpose of decreasing the cutaneous, intra-articular, and core temperature of soft tissue with the intention of improving the symptoms of certain conditions. These include decreasing edema, pain, muscle spasms, local blood flow, metabolism, and tissue extensibility. 

IASTM

IASTM is a skilled intervention that includes the use of specialized tools to manipulate the skin, myofascia, muscles, and tendons for the detection and treatment of soft tissue disorders. This is achieved by various compressive stroke techniques used to effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. (12)

deep-traverse-friction

Deep friction massage (DFM), is a connective tissue technique commonly applied transversely to a motor point of the targeted tendon or ligament to facilitate healing by increasing the supply of oxygen transported to the injury. (6) This technique is deep and is administered to improve scar tissue mobility, decrease tension, maintain soft tissue functionality, deter scar formation, and relieve pain. It is otherwise known as cross friction massage and was developed in 1930 by the renowned English orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Cyriax.(7)

manual trigger

Manual trigger point therapy is a soft tissue technique that helps release tense and painful nodules, often labeled “muscle knots”, located in your muscles and myofascia. Components of manual trigger point therapy may include sustained pressure, muscle stripping, and passive stretching. (8) (13)

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a manual technique used to mobilize and lengthen fascia in order to release fascial restrictions. Fascia located within all underlying structures of our body including muscles, organs, nerves, and bones. These structures are encased both globally and individually to provide protection and lubrication and thus facilitate proper movement. Fascia can become restricted through injuries, stress, trauma, or poor posture.

cupping

Cupping therapy, also known as Modern Cupping, is a western based approach that utilizes plastic or silicone cups and a vacuum pump on the skin to manipulate the superficial layers of soft tissue. This modality can be used to increase blood flow, improve lymphatic movement, release fascial restrictions, or reduce swelling depending on the use and treatment goal. (9) There are various techniques of application possible including dry cupping, glide cupping, and flash cupping each used to target a different structure and physiological response.  

*It is important to note that Fire cupping is not a technique performed at MediMassage, as it is out of the scope of practice of licensed massage therapists in Illinois.

Clinical Aromatherapy

Clinical aromatherapy is defined as the use of essential oils by a trained clinician for the purpose of general wellness or symptom management. It can be applied directly on the skin when properly diluted or via indirect inhalation. Aromatherapy can serve to stimulate the release of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin which regulate fundamental bodily functions and emotions.(11) Treatable symptoms may include nausea, stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain, and mood disorders.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Your lymphatic system is an important part of your immune system. It keeps fluids in your body balanced and protects you against infections.

stretch therapy

Stretch therapy involves moving the body in a series of motions and positions that serves to elongate target musculature in order to attain maximum efficiency and functionality. It is applied by trained practitioner to reduce tension, improve muscle length, and increase range of motion. Recent studies have indicated that stretching can enhance athletic performance and reduce the probability of injury when applied appropriately.

passive static stretching

Passive-static stretching is a slow-paced, assisted physical activity that involves passively placing the body part with gradual force in a position that elongates the muscle for a prolonged period of time (usually 10-30 seconds). The external force may be a practitioner, an accessory, or the force of gravity.(10)

pnf stretching

Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching, also known as pre-contraction stretching, involves the contraction of the muscle being stretched or its antagonist prior to assisted elongation. (5) (10) Types of PNF stretching may include contract relax (CR), hold relax (HR), and contract-relax agonist contract (CRAC). (10)
