Greg Roskopf's Muscle Activation Techniques

  • Bridges the gap between Fitness and Rehabilitation.  MAT looks at muscle tightness as a form of protection in the body. Weak or inhibited muscles can create the need for other muscles to tighten up in order to help stabilize the joints. MAT gets to the root of pain or injury by addressing muscle weakness rather than muscle tightness. This helps to restore normal body alignment, thereby, decreasing pain and reducing the risk of injury.
  • MAT enables you a new lease on your active lifestyle. With MAT, you can return to the golf course, tennis court, ski slopes or athletic field with renewed strength and without pain. With MAT, athletes of all ages will perform at a higher level without injury, allowing them to "stay in the game".  For more information go to www.muscleactivation.com 

 

Rehabilitative Massage

  • Rehabilitative massage is designed to support healing of injuries and restoring full range of motion. Active Release, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular Therapy are examples of rehabilitative massage techniques that locate the source of spasms and tension. The therapist focuses on these muscles to restore them to their natural state.

 

Sports Massage

  • Sports massage works on the connective tissue and deep muscle structures. The massage is applied using hard and deep strokes, combined with finger pressure. Sports massage is specifically designed to increase flexibility and prevent injuries. It is specifically designed for the types of injuries obtained during athletic activity.

 

Lymphatic Massage 

  • The Lymphatic system’s job is to detoxify bodily fluids before they are circulated into the blood stream. The Lymphatic system moves the fluids through the body and then to the liver. Toxemia and swelling is a result of the Lymphatic system not working properly. Lymphatic massage reduces muscle swelling, which increases blood flow, which in turn supports proper Lymphatic system functioning.


Myofascial Release

  • Myofascial release involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions. The massage relaxes the contracted muscles and increases venous and lymphatic drainage. Myofascial release treats somatic dysfunction and relieves the accompanying pain and limited range of motion.

 

Relaxation Massage

  • The goal of a relaxation massage to is relax you. This type of massage is gentle and less intense that some of the other styles. The therapist gently works the upper layers of the muscle tissue to increase relaxation. Relaxation massage is a total experience as it is preformed in a dim setting, with candles and sometimes with scented oils.

 

Swedish massage

  • Swedish massage increases blood circulation to more than 4 times its normal rate. The massage releases the stagnant toxins stored in the muscle fibers. The result is fresh oxygenated blood flow into the muscles, that boosts energy levels.
