MASSAGE & FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY
Functional and therapeutic movement instruction is addressed during the 10-week group program. For patients requiring additional movement-interventions, they are referred to our medical massage therapist/fascial stretch therapist, and/or yoga instructor. During medical massage and fascial stretching sessions, the patient’s level of physical functioning is evaluated (e.g., range of motion, hip rotation, etc.), followed by instruction and application of stretches the patient can practice in front of the medical massage therapist, and at home.
Unlike spa massage, Medical Massage is intended to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed by a medical provider. MVPC’s medical massage therapist uses a variety of modalities and techniques and focuses on the areas of the body related to the diagnosis. Fascial Stretch Therapy™ is a complete and complementary system of table-based assisted stretching, focusing on the fascia and joint capsule as the key elements in achieving optimal flexibility, strength, and pain relief. FST™ is a quick and effective method to eliminate pain, restore function, move, and feel better in activities of life and fitness.
All medical massage and Fascial Stretch Therapy is provided by MVPC's Licensed Massage Therapist.
