The theory behind orthopedic massage therapy

In a healthy body, the skeleton essentially floats within the soft tissues (muscle, connective tissue, fascia, etc). Movement from a balanced posture is free, fluid, and painless.

When we are out of balance, our tissues may become overstretched or rigid. Movement then becomes restricted and requires structural compensation to perform our daily functions. In short, these imbalances force us to use our bodies in unnatural ways. Over time, these compensations and imbalances can manifest as chronic pain or repetitive strain injuries.

The goal of Orthopedic Massage Therapy is to promote a healthier state by balancing the soft tissues of the body.
