Our Craft

Massage is NOT Self-Indugence, It’s Self Care!

We at Optimal Massage pride ourselves in being curators of expert professionals trained in the therapeutic bodywork disciplines and modalities that can serve all of the unique set of challenges our clients present.

The following disciplines and modalities are represented across our team’s expertise:

Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy

  • Incorporates kinesiology, orthopedic assessment and soft tissue manual therapy to effectively treat soft tissue and improve joint mobility.

Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy

  • A cross-fiber friction technique incorporating lymphatic drainage and myofascial release that improves joint movement and removes toxins from muscles and surrounding soft tissue.

Myofascial Release

  • Applying gentle, sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Trigger Point /Neuromuscular Therapy

  • Alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasms relaxes the muscle in order to release stored lactic acid. This encourages blood and oxygen circulation to the muscle to avoid the production of more lactic acid.

Lymphatic Drainage

  • Encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart.

Swedish

  • Using firm, but gentle strokes, this well-known, classic discipline is a great introductory treatment, or for someone who prefers a lighter-touch treatment. Using five styles of massage strokes, the therapist will apply sliding/gliding, kneading, rhythmic tapping, cross-fiber massage, and vibration to reduce pain, joint stiffness and improve function.

Cupping

  • An ancient form of medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. It is used to help with pain, reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and promote relaxation.
