What Is Functional Movement Therapy?

Functional Movement Therapy (FMT) is an effective way of facilitating healing and bringing balance to the vascular and nervous system. The healthy function and movement of your joints and vascular systems is the key to eliminating pain when performing activities.

FMT is a protocol to get to the root cause of myofascial and structural imbalance. This therapy targets the parasympathetic response of the nervous system to reset or release fascial compression that is inhibiting proper blood flow and nerve communication.

The nervous system controls every function in the body—this is the root cause that needs to function optimally for cell repair, cell growth, and daily autonomic functions that keep you healthy and vibrant. We help not only in repairing and recovering your body after it has sustained an injury, we can also help you in maintaining overall optimal health.

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain

Sports Massage Therapy

The Benefits of Sports Massage Therapy

Joint Mobility 

Your joints have restrictive movement when the fascia surrounding muscles tighten. The impact from your sport puts pressure and tension on your joints, causing joint friction which can lead to joint pain and injury. Regular sports massage can loosen these muscles, allowing your joints to move freely.

Increased Flexibility

When your muscle tightens, your blood flow and circulation are restricted in inhibiting your muscles from healing as quickly as possible. The lactic acid and other debris build up in your muscles, causing irritation and tenderness. Sports massage helps flush the muscle and increase circulation for a quick recovery.

Muscle Power

Your muscles have a “natural resting length.” When your muscles are chronically tense, muscle strength lessens. Your range of motion decreases, limiting your power for your sport. Regular sports massage can help return your muscles to their natural resting length, increasing your power as you train.
