Welcome to Integrated Vitality
Structural Massage & Bodywork with real results
The vast majority of people seeking massage services are doing so for pain and stress related reasons. Treating yourself on your birthday or unwinding after a busy day at work is one thing; but the primary concern for many people is that their problems are alleviated completely or drastically improved when the service is complete. Integrated Vitality is about identifying the root cause of an issue and systematically correcting the areas of dysfunction in order to return the body to its properly functioning state.
One Service- Many Components
Fascia is the connective tissue that wraps around all the muscles, joints, and organs in the body, holding them in place and providing structure. It also communicates neural signals, transmits force and provides stability across muscle groups. Integrated Vitality uses myofascial release to treat associated connective tissue and muscles to unlock and equalize structural imbalances.
When most people think deep tissue massage, they think hard pressure massage. This is not exactly accurate, but it is often what they get. Deep tissue is simply working the muscles below the superficial muscles. It is often necessary when pain and dysfunction are present but it doesn't always have to be as painful as many people expect or have experienced.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are often called "knots" in the muscles. Trigger point therapy is a modality for relieving them. Trigger points are often painful or sensitive when worked on but the payoff is worth the momentary discomfort. Most aches and pains are direct results of one or more trigger points.
Fascial Distortion Model
FDM is a treatment model that specifically and systematically addresses any of six distinct types of distortion that may be present in the fascial tissue. This way of viewing an injury is consistently useful when determining a more customized and effective course of action.
