Massage Therapy at SE Portland Physical Therapy

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest healing arts and is a comprehensive, therapeutic approach to improve and maximize one’s current level of function. Massage Therapy is used to release chronic patterns of muscular tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on the hypocontracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons, and fascia. In an effort to alleviate the target area(s) of disfunction, the massage therapist may use several different techniques to correct the affected area(s). These techniques include Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish Massage, Sports Massage, and Thai Massage.
