Back Massage


Massage Therapy is considered one of the earliest therapeutic tools used to alleviate pain. Written records date back to 2700 BCE in both China and Egypt. There are various forms of massage therapy practiced in the United States and worldwide, which address a multitude of conditions- everything from stress-reduction to chronic low back pain. Research indicates that massage therapy enhances the immune system, facilitates tissue recovery and growth, increases alertness and circulation, and reduces stress and pain.

Types of Massage Therapy at Waypoint Integrative Health

Every massage therapy session at WIH incorporates the following principles as it relates to the client’s unique needs:

Swedish- Most common form of massage therapy utilizing long, gliding, kneading, friction, and tapping movements.

Deep Tissue Therapy- Deep, focused work on muscle layers and fascia.

Positional Release Therapy- Focuses on a tender or constricted area of the body and the body’s ideal position of comfort necessary to release dysfunction of said area.

Neuromuscular Therapy- Addresses Trigger Points, which are areas of hyper-irritable tissue(s) that overload the central nervous system and cause referred pain.

Orthopedic Massage- Focuses on orthopedic conditions from the perspective of treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention via work on soft tissues. Often used in the context of injuries.

Myofascial Release- Sustained, gradual pressure is applied to connective tissue to ease constraint and improve mobility.

Sports Massage- Focuses on muscle-joint interaction, range of motion, and mobility. Often used in the context of injury prevention and pre-/post- training events

Stretching Therapy- Assessment of and treatment for limitations in range of motion due to joint restriction and/or muscle tension. Utilizes a variety of techniques to help prevent injury and improve performance 

Craniosacral Therapy- Incorporates a light, therapeutic touch and gentle traction to help release tension in the body's connective tissue (fascia). Works to calm and regulate the nervous system. This form of bodywork is gentle, supportive, and creates deep change
