Fascial Stretch Therapy™ is a unique, 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, performance and pain relief.
Massage therapy is the manipulation of superficial and deep layers of muscles, fascia, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue using various techniques. These techniques may include gentle or firm pressure, kneading, friction, tapotement, and others in order to promote relaxation/well-being, recovery and healing of injuries, pain relief, and enhanced function to the targeted tissues.
There are several types of massage offered at Baltimore Sports Recovery:
- Swedish Massage
- Deep Tissue Massage
- Sports Massage
- Therapeutic Massage
Massage Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) is the use of tools which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration. Here at Baltimore Sports Recovery, we use RockBlades as our instrument of choice.
