Essentially, sports massage applies western medical and scientific knowledge to prevent, recognize, assess, manage and rehabilitate injuries related to sport, exercise or recreational activity. Sports medicine is targeted not only to the professional athlete but the person with an athletic or active lifestyle to enhance health, fitness and performance. Sports Massage is to address the athlete’s healing potential thereby strengthening the patient, and as a result, decreases injury rehabilitation time. Getting the athlete back to their desired activity, enhancing performance and preventing re-injury through treatment and education is the goal.
Swedish massage uses a technique called effleurage. The technique involves rubbing with gliding strokes towards the direction of blood returning towards the heart. Swedish massage therapy has more benefits than relaxation. It is beneficial for increasing the oxygen level of blood, improving blood circulation, reducing muscle toxins and increasing flexibility of the muscles while easing the tension.
Deep tissue massage is a therapy that focuses on the alignment of deeper layers of connective tissues and muscles. It is helpful to relieve chronic tensions such as low back tightness, stiff neck, sore shoulders etc. Similar strokes are applied in the classic massage therapy, however deep tissues massage involves slower movement with pressure concentrated on areas of pain and tension. It physically breaks down the adhesions to restore muscle movement and relieve pain.
Cupping utilizes a vacuum inside of a glass cup to create suction on the skin. This helps to stimulate the flow of blood and moves qi in the body’s channels. Cupping can be used to treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, asthma, and congestion; arthritis; gastrointestinal disorders; and certain types of pain. Cupping may leave marks on the skin similar to a bruise; however, the marks are usually painless and disappear in a few days.
Graston Technique is very similar to the TCM technique of gua sha. The Graston technique does not leave marks on the patients skin therefore the same physiological process of gua sha is not achieved. The efficacy of the Graston Technique is based on various instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilizations that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Prenatal massage aims at reducing swelling of the muscles, stress, aches, and pains in joints. It is one of the most recommended massage for pregnant women. Women with lower back pain, restricted from medication can always go for prenatal massage. Not only is it beneficial to reduce pain and tension of the muscles, but also helps a pregnant woman with emotional stability during the hormonal change.
Medical massage is performed with the intention of improving medical conditions diagnosed by a doctor. Using various modalities, a medical therapy session aims at restoring the structural balance of the body, reintegration of musculoskeletal dysfunctions, sports injuries and chronic pain. Primary modalities include myofascial release, functional assessment, mobilization of scar tissues, PNF stretching and particular home-care protocols.
Aromatherapy refers to a technique involving the use of aroma through inhalation, including application of essential oils the fragrance of which lifts the spirit, balances mood, create a soothing atmosphere and dismiss negative emotions. Chinese herbal medicines readily use a combination of essential oils to treat depression and trauma.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a whole medical system developed in China thousands of years ago. It is based on the concept that disease and injury are the result of a disruption or imbalance of qi (an essential substance that nourishes and constructs the body). This imbalance may create pain if the body’s qi is not moving properly through a specific area. The imbalance may create a variety of symptoms. Acupuncture consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems. Does acupuncture hurt? Simply answer is NO. Most first time patients are surprised and pleased to find acupuncture treatment is relaxing and pleasant experience. Are the needles sterile? Acupuncturists only use single-use, factory sterilized, and disposable needles. How many acupuncture treatments will you need? We are all busy and “extra” money is hard to come by. We all hope for rapid results to help alleviate us from our discomforts. The average initial course of treatment consists of eight to ten sessions.
It is important to remember- you didn’t get this way overnight and you are not going to heal overnight either. Here at Shoreline Massage Therapy, San Diego we are results-orientated and my goal is to get you to the point that you can stop treatment or transition to maintenance care as quickly as possible. On the other hand those patients who have patiently committed to consistent treatments as preventative maintenance maintain an overall healthier and pain free lifestyle.

Diseases, symptoms. or conditions for which acupuncture has been proved through controlled clinical trails to be an effective treatment:
Chinese herbal medicine is a vital component to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Chinese herbs are most commonly used in combination in a formula. In contrast to pharmaceutical medications that contain a concentrated element, Chinese herbal formulas can be modified for the individual to reduce the risk of side effects while still having therapeutic effects. These formulas work within the same Traditional Chinese Medicine theory as acupuncture. Additionally, many single herbs have been studied and shown to individually have specific effects on specific conditions. Chinese herbs may be used internally and externally. They can be taken in tea or pill form. For external use, commonly herbs are applied to the skin in a powdered form mixed with a medium to allow them to stay put. Additionally herbs may be soaked in a medium to create a liniment that may be rubbed into the skin. Herbal products can treat a variety of conditions, including colds, digestive disorders, insomnia, headaches, arthritis, skin disorders, asthma, and many other problems usually treated with prescription medications.
