Therapeutic Massage Therapy is an integral part of the treatment we offer at White Oak Center.
Studies show that massage can help alleviate conditions such as anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, insomnia related to stress, soft tissue strains or injuries, sports injuries and temporomandibular joint pain.
At our office we provide conventional massage, as well as the following specialized modalities:
Therapeutic Lyme Disease Massage
Our Massage Therapist is highly trained in this aggressive massage geared specifically to Lyme patients. The technique stimulates organ systems, engages your immune system, relieves muscle spasms and adhesions, improves neuralgia and stimulates circulation of your blood and lymphatic fluid in order to improve your body’s ability to detoxify.
Deep Tissue Medical Massage
Deep Tissue necessitates advanced training and a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. As a massage modality it helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation, while reducing inflammation related pain caused by arthritis and tendonitis.
As its’ name suggests, Myofascial Release helps in the release of cervical pain, back pain and with conditions like fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological function, restricted motion, chronic pain and headaches.
Cupping is a very affective deep tissue therapy. It is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the surface of the skin. Cupping technique uses suction created by negative pressure in the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood flow and lymphatic circulation systemically and locally. Cups are moved up and down over the area of treatment. Cupping is used to relieve stiff muscles, back pain, headache, stress and red itchy skin conditions. It is also very affective for treatment of respiratory conditions such as asthma, cough and cold. Cupping massage is also often used for treatment of cellulite and weight loss.
Designed to enhance both athletic performance and recovery time, Sports Massage enables an athlete to resume training sooner than rest alone would allow. When an injury is involved, this particular modality can speed up and improve the healing process.
