massage therapy for Chronic pain


Therapies we offer include: 

Synergistic Structure Integration (Posture Correction)

Synergistic structure integration is a type of physical therapy that works to restore balance, flexibility, and strength to the body. It combines elements of posture correction and myofascial release, which both aim to reduce pain, improve mobility, and restore natural movement patterns. Posture correction works by correcting the alignment of your body’s structure while myofascial release works by releasing tension in the connective tissues. Together they can help improve your overall well-being.

Myofascial Release 

Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy used to treat chronic pain in the tissues that surround and support muscles throughout the body. It is done by applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This helps to reduce inflammation and improve mobility, leading to improved performance and overall well-being.

Myoskeletal Release 

Myoskeletal release is a type of bodywork therapy that focuses on using manual therapeutic techniques to correct alignment problems in the body. This type of treatment works to restore balance and flexibility to the musculoskeletal system. It is often used to treat chronic pain and tension, as well as other muscular ailments. Myoskeletal release can be beneficial for athletes, post-injury rehabilitation, and overall health and wellness.

Medical Massage 

Medical massage is a form of therapeutic treatment that uses techniques from massage therapy to treat specific medical conditions. It can be used to help alleviate pain, increase mobility, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and reduce stress. Medical massage is often used in conjunction with other treatments for a more comprehensive approach to healing.

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) Massage Therapy 

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of massage therapy that works to help move extra fluid out of your body’s tissues. It’s often used to reduce swelling and discomfort caused by lymphedema, an accumulation of lymph fluid under the skin. MLD can also be used to help reduce pain, inflammation, and tension in other areas of the body.

Microcurrent Acupuncture

Microcurrent acupuncture is a form of acupuncture that uses very low levels of electrical current to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. It is especially effective for treating chronic pain, and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. The current works by stimulating the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which plays an important role in cell metabolism and helps speed up healing. Microcurrent acupuncture has been shown to reduce inflammation and promote relaxation, improve circulation, and even increase energy levels.

Swedish Massage 

Swedish massage is a type of massage therapy technique that focuses on relaxation. It uses long, gentle strokes to improve circulation and reduce tension in the body. One of the main benefits of Swedish massage is improved circulation. Swedish massage also promotes relaxation by relieving muscle tension. It can help to decrease stress hormones in the body, such as cortisol and adrenaline, which can have a calming effect on the body and mind. Additionally, Swedish massage techniques are often used to reduce pain in areas affected by chronic conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia. Finally, Swedish massage can potentially be beneficial for reducing stress and anxiety levels. As it relaxes muscles and reduces tension, it can help people feel more relaxed overall. 

Deep Tissue Massage 

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as “adhesions”).

Cupping is an ancient method to improve circulation and chronic pain. It is a form of massage therapy


Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice that has been used to help promote healing and relaxation. Our certified Massage Therapist Samer Loulou, places special cups on your skin to create suction, which helps to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. Some of the potential benefits of cupping include:

• Reducing pain in the neck and back

• Improving circulation throughout the body

• Supporting relaxation and relieving stress

• Increasing range of motion in joints

• Reducing symptoms of asthma, arthritis, migraines, and other conditions

Massage therapy with hot stones

Hot Basalt Stone Massage 

Hot basalt stone massage is a type of massage therapy that uses heated basalt stones to provide relief from muscular pain and tension. The benefits of hot basalt stone massage include improved circulation, relaxation, relief from muscle tension and spasms, decreased inflammation, and improved joint movement.

aroma therapy - massage therapy

Aromatherapy massage

Aromatherapy massage is a type of massage therapy that uses essential oils and therapeutic fragrances to provide relief from physical and mental stress.  Aromatherapy massage offers a variety of benefits such as relaxation, improved mood, improved sleep quality, reduced stress levels, increased energy levels, and improved concentration.

In Closing 

No matter which  treatment you decide on, therapeutic massage therapy helps to stimulate the flow of oxygen-rich blood to various parts of the body, which can improve overall health. This increased blood flow helps to reduce inflammation and pain in muscles and other tissues. Additionally, studies have shown that massage therapy may be beneficial in treating depression by improving mood and helping people sleep better at night. We hope you choose Vitalogy Wellness for all your therapeutic massage therapy needs and want to help you optimize your health and wellbeing for years to come.
