A therapeutic massage can be directed to muscles, tendons and veinous/lymphatic flow to reduce aches and pains. Our therapist has a range of specific techniques that can target tight, tired or strained muscles.
Pre- and Post-Natal Massage
Massage can help before and after delivery. As your posture changes during pregnancy you may notice:
- Stress on your lower back or hips
- Middle back tightness
- Rib discomfort
This can make moving, sitting, sleeping, and even breathing uncomfortable at times! Our massage treatments help ease these strains, as well as improve fluid flow to reduce swelling in the hands and feet. Special pregnancy cushions are used to provide maximum safety and comfort for expectant mothers.
Acute and chronic injuries suffered from training and sports can be identified and treated. Whether they be strains, sprains, or overuse affecting the tendons, massage can help your recovery. Athletes can also choose to relax or stimulate muscles depending on the athlete’s needs pre-event, or help speed up recovery post-event.
Long, slow, gentle massage strokes can calm the mind and relax the body. Soft tissue manipulation at OCHK helps release tension and stress in a comfortable, relaxed environment. You can select a full-body relaxation massage OR have our therapist focus on specific body parts.
