PRO Scrapping Massage in Santa Barbara

PRO Scrapping Massage in Santa Barbara

Scraping therapy is a form of manual therapy on soft tissues where a small tool is used to gently scrape over soft tissue (fascia, ligaments, tendons, and muscles). This aids in breaking down scar tissue that results from trauma or overuse. Scraping therapy also helps promote a better healing environment by improving circulation in the acute area. Some advantages of scraping therapy include pain relief, a decrease in overall treatment/recovery time, and a reduced need for anti-inflammatory medication. You may benefit from scraping therapy if you’ve been experiencing neck pain, back pain, sprained ankle, torn tendons/ligaments, or chronic pain.

Muscle Adhesions

Muscle Adhesions

My style of Deep Tissue Massage releases the body’s natural painkillers whereby it stimulates the release of endorphins, the morphine-like substances that the body manufactures into the brain and nervous system. Once that happens (you are now in a parasympathetic state “rest and digest”) I then go to work on your injured area to break up the damaged fibrous adhesion which is spread randomly throughout a muscle thus increasing blood flow, oxygen, strength, flexibility, and tissue re-building.
