Orthopedic Massage in Los Angeles
What is Orthopedic Massage Therapy?
Orthopedic Massage Therapy is a multidisciplinary approach to relieving muscular and soft tissue pain, dysfunction, and injuries. It is also utilized to help clients regain and improve their health and fitness. A multidisciplinary approach is far more powerful than one technique or form of treatment.
Pioneered and developed by internationally renowned massage therapist, James Waslaski, Orthopedic Massage Therapy uses three major processes:
• Functional musculoskeletal assessment
• Customized deep tissue and fascia massage
• Systematic strength and stretch training and exercises
Properly performed and directed by a licensed therapist, Orthopedic Massage Therapy restores the body’s structural balance, significantly reduces acute soft tissue pain, and improves flexibility.
