The Right Massage Therapy for Aches and Pains

THERAPEUTIC INNOVATIONS we are more than just a massage offers a wide variety of massage therapy services designed to promote relaxation and healing. Our clients, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and throughout the Tri-State Area, are given the right treatment for their specific type of pain.

Gua Sha Therapy

Gua Sha/Graston Method

This ancient healing technique tackles chronic and acute pain caused by the stagnation of blood in the affected area. A smooth-edged instrument is used to apply short or long strokes on the skin, typically in the area of pain or on the back parallel to the spine. The goal is to create painless bruising or raised redness (petechiae), which helps promote blood flow and thus pain relief.

Mu-Xing Bamboo Therapy

This deep tissue massage therapy utilizes a variety of strokes addressing ischemic tissue to promote overall relaxation, well-being, and reduce muscle tension. By using warm bamboo and rosewood, we can work deeper with less effort, providing a full body massage.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is ideal for both treatment and preventative measures. It focuses on everything from healthy muscles and connective tissues to improving your range of movement. Other benefits of sports massage include improved tone, symmetry, muscle balance, and posture. This therapy uses a variety of techniques, including:

• Broadening Strokes
• Compression
• Direct Pressure
• Effleurage
• Friction (Including Cross Fiber)
• Petrissage
• Range of Motion
• Shaping
• Stretching
• Vibration

Therapeutic and Deep Tissue Massage

Many studies have shown that massages can help relieve depression and anxiety by lowering cortisol levels by up to 50%, and improve neurotransmitter levels. Additionally, it can relieve the symptoms and occurrences of migraines while improving sleep. Numerous studies have shown it also relieves persistent lower back pain, reducing the need to use painkillers by up to 36% (better than acupuncture or spinal modification.)

Prenatal and Perinatal Massages

The extra muscle tension caused by pregnancy may be relieved by encouraging proper blood flow. With more oxygen and lymphatic fluid, your tissues can perform better while ridding itself of toxins and metabolic wastes. Some conditions common for pregnant women that we treat include:
