Manual therapy is a specialized method of massage that utilizes specific, hands-on techniques. It improves tissue adaptability, increases range of motion of the joint, and increases vascularity/healing. To mobilize or manipulate soft tissue and joints it induces relaxation, changes muscle function, modulates pain, and reduces soft tissue swelling, inflammation or movement restriction.
Who it can benefit:
Athletes with prior injuries, those looking to improve flexibility or range of motion, those experiencing issues with pain, inflammation, and swelling.
