Tim Griffin Massage offers an array of services to fit your needs.
The purpose of this massage modality is to help relax the mind and body with strokes that promote blood and lymph flow toward the heart. This increases oxygen and supports the immune system. Swedish massage also aids in relaxing sore muscles by promoting the decrease in built up muscle toxins, promotes flexibility and improving muscle tone.
Deep tissue massage is an extension of the Swedish modality with the purpose to target specific problem areas. This modality can help with chronic muscle tension and/or to correct postural distortions. A deep tissue massage promotes general health by relieving the stress and energy drain of chronically tight muscles.
Neuromuscular therapy (NMT), also known as trigger point therapy, is a specialized technique used in the treatment of chronic and acute pain caused by soft tissue dysfunction. Trigger points are tight spots in muscles that cause nerves to be hyper-excitable. This increased excitability is often associated with referred pain that can be localized around the trigger point or somewhere else in the body. NMT focuses on searching out these tight spots and treating them to facilitate soft tissue healing.
Sports massage, also known as athletic massage, is designed to enhance athletic performance. Constant, intense training can push the body past its limits causing slowed recuperation time, muscle tightness, or even injury. The application of sports massage promotes increased function by speeding recovery time, improving freedom of movement and reducing injury risk.
