Best Massage for Pain Relief
What is DocSSage®?
DocSSage® is a doctor developed massage technique that focuses on releasing the muscle “knots,” or trigger points that cause tightness, stiffness and pain. It is very specific and CORRECTIVE. By releasing these underlying causes of pain, DocSSage® offers longer lasting relief than a typical massage. This revolutionary treatment was developed by a doctor of chiropractic with over 21 years of experience. He incorporated many different techniques with the purpose of achieving THE MOST EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF THERAPY!
DocSSage® Combines the Following Techniques:
Trigger Points are localized spasms or knots in the muscle fibers that may cause pain to be referred to other, more distant parts of the body. We will show you the exact areas that are the most common to have trigger points present and we’ll demonstrate the easiest and most efficient ways to alleviate them.
Fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body. Myofascial release is a gentle, manipulative treatment that releases the tension in the fascia due to trauma, repetitive movement or poor posture. We will show you easy techniques to release the myofascial tension and stop the pain.
After the trigger points and the fascia are released, we will show you easy deep tissue massage moves to ensure the muscle fibers regain and maintain their healthy shape and do not return to their tense and tight states. The proven sequence in which all of these techniques are used is crucial for longer lasting relief.
Passive stretches are done to you by your partner. We will show you how to use this stretching technique to improve your mobility and decrease the chances of scar tissue developing in the injured muscles. They are also beneficial for preventing arthritis developing in the joints controlled by those muscles.
To ensure long lasting relief and no relapses, we put together basic stretches that you will do by yourself, on a daily basis. They are simple, but very efficient in preventing the return of the symptoms and improving your overall flexibility and posture. They are only 5 to 15 minutes long, but they have to be performed daily.
Proper posture is extremely important for a pain free body and overall health. We will show you the correct posture positions for sitting, standing, walking and lifting. We will also show you some easy exercises to help improve your core muscles and make it easier for you to maintain the proper posture.
*The combination of these techniques and the order in which they have to be performed is what makes DocSSage® unique and VERY EFFICIENT!
Most frequent questions and answers
The main goal of DocSSage® therapy is correction of muscular imbalances and trigger points for the purpose of pain relief. It is not only about feeling good at the moment, but feeling good and healthy for the long term. It focuses on the specific knots or spasms that cause the pain and the limitation of movement in the corresponding joints.
Many patients have stated that they have received a lot of different massages in the past, but they have never experienced such a specific and corrective therapy as DocSSage®.
Most of the sessions take between 20 and 40 minutes depending on the type and extent of the injury. Considering that the main goal of the therapy is pain relief and muscle injury correction, any more than that could actually be detrimental.
The recommended therapy protocol will depend on the type of injury and how long has it been since it started. A simple strain can take as little as 2 to 4 sessions. A more complex, chronic, injury can take 6 to 12 sessions. However, you should always start seeing some relief after the first 2 or 3 sessions.
DocSSage® therapists are either licensed massage therapists or doctors of chiropractic. These professionals are very well versed in working on the muscular system already. They are certified in the specific protocol of DocSSage® once they go through a program of certification.
Some insurance companies cover DocSSage® if the treatment is performed by a licensed doctor of chiropractic. You can send us a copy of your insurance card and date of birth and we can check that information for you prior to your appointment.
The first session, which includes a brief consultation, costs 120.00.
Consequent visits can cost between 60.00 and 90.00 depending on the number of sessions necessary for proper correction.
It is possible, but it depends on many factors. It is best to call us and discuss your individual circumstances.
