We at Innervated are about creating a new approach when it comes to manual therapy. So much so, that we challenge you to rethink MT (Manual or massage therapy). We are dedicated to providing outstanding bodywork by using a comprehensive approach of not only releasing tissue, but activating tissue as well.
A common misconception of manual work is that therapist ONLY massage/stretch to lengthen muscles and relieve pain. When really it's a combination of down regulation (release) and up regulation (activate) of the nervous system and tissue. You see, the body is a bunch of ropes and pully systems that are in a constant state of tug-of-war. It's called tensegrity.
Tensegrity- the characteristic property of a stable three-dimensional structure consisting of members under tension that are contiguous and members under compression that are not
Musculatures can become over active and need to be released, while others become inactive and need to be turned on. With this approach, we are better able to assess where your pain may be coming from and apply the proper treatment or strategy, even if that means sending you to the another health care provider. If we can't solve your issue through means of bodywork or corrective intervention, or it falls outside of our scope of practice, we may send you to our colleagues in different fields to work with you and get you back to 100%. We just want you to feel better no matter what!
