Pain Relief Centre’s massage therapists employ a four-pronged massage attack that aims to weed out stress and muscle tension from relaxation-seeking customers. To start, a skilled muscle guru confers with clients and old Hulk comic books to determine the primary source of muscle tension, then decides on an appropriate treatment. Each deep-tissue massage hones in on muscles beneath muscles with more substantial pressure and deeper kneading, and the myofascial-release massage loosens the bonds among fascia, muscles, and tissues to help improve range of motion in appendages. Because pressure points sometimes activate tension elsewhere in the body, a trigger-point massage aims to deactivate those pesky pain channels. Additionally, a medical massage can promote blood circulation to aid healing after a rousing game of Dungeons and Dragons “goes there.”
