Recover faster and stress less with injury specific mobile massage

Heal soft tissue injury faster with injury specific in home massage. Perfect for anybody in a cast, on crutches, bedridden, or unable to drive.

What is Injury Specific Mobile Massage?

Injury specific massage is focused on aiding in the recovery to a specific injury. Mobile Massage is when the massage therapist comes to you!

Instead of spending the whole session a full-body massage, injury-specific will spend most of the massage on reducing swelling and improving mobility in the specific body parts related to injury. This includes using elements of Swedish massage, as well as some myofascial release and lymph drainage techniques.

  • Myofascial release: Assisted stretches that aid in the unwinding of tight connective tissue.
  • Lymph drainage: Used to reduce swelling. Light pressure is used to encourage the body's immune liquid, lymph, to move.
  • Effleurage: Long, gliding strokes that promote relaxation and healing.
  • Friction: If there is scar tissue present, firm pressure is used across the muscle fibers to help break it down over time. This is also a component of deep tissue massage.

What is Injury Specific In-Home Massage good for?

It's easy to assume injury-specific massage is only good for soft tissue injuries. But massage can help heal many other conditions and injuries.

  • Sprains and strains
  • Arthritis pain relief
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • EDS (ehlers-danlos syndrome)
  • Chronic pain
  • Musculoskeletal diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis, spinabifia, and scoliosis.
  • Much more

Injury Specific Mobile Massage From Start To Finsih

Call

Get in touch so we can talk about what massage you would like to schedule, and when you would like it to be.

Intake

For the best experience, it's important for your massage therapist to know the following health information about you:

  • Injuries (previous and current)
  • Surgeries (previous and current)
  • Current medication
  • Any relevant diagnosis

Supplies

In light of the novel coronavirus, we are now requesting that you provide your own clean sheets. This also helps us keep the massage affordable for everyone. Thank you for your understanding.

We supply everything else.

Clothing

The invitation is to undress to your level of comfort. If that means fully clothed, I can work with that. You may also be nude if you like. Cozy sheets will be used for appropriate draping the duration of the massage.

Focus

You can choose 60 minute or 90 minute massage. If you want an extra 15 minutes at the end for your head or feet, just let us know. But we'll have to charge extra for that time.

If you do not want anywhere touched for any reason, just let your therapist know.

Follow Up

After the massage your therapist will go wash their hands and you may get off the table and get dressed (pajamas recommended!). The therapist then disinfects and packs up their equipment while telling you any helpful post-massage information you may need.

Injury Specific in Home Massage FAQ

It depends on the injury. For some, massage has direct mechanical benefits. This includes most soft tissue injuries such as:

  • Muscle sprains
  • Tendon strains
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Myofascial syndrome
  • Obstructive scar tissue
  • Degrative tissue diseases 

For others, massage has indirect psychological benefits. It's common knowledge that stress exasperates many conditions. Injury specific massage is indirectly beneficial for:

  • Cancer
  • Mood disorders (depression, anxiety, etc)
  • IBS
  • High blood pressure
  • Eating disorders

 

During active muscle sprain, the direct site should not be massaged deeply at all. The main focus should be around the site of injury and addressing any adjustments the body has made, such as a limp.

Once the tear has healed, the site can be directly massaged.

Massage is ideal for recovering from muscle strains. In the acute phase, it lessens inflammation and therefor decreases damage done by excessive inflammation of effected tissue.

In the recovery phase, it help scar tissue lay correctly, and decreases the chance of re-injury.

It depends on the injury, but generally RICE always helps. RICE is standard care proven to speed recovery by reducing inflammation. RICE can help you treat your soft tissue injury. It stands for:

Rest: avoid heavy use of the effected area

Ice: Apply ice for 20 minutes. This can be cycled with applying heat for 20 minutes.

Compression: Wrap the site of injury to add stability and physically restrain the tissue from swelling too much.

Elevation: Keep the effected area elevated (ideally, above your heart).

 

 

 

 

 

There is very little massage is not good for. But for the following conditions, massage can make symptoms worse:

  • Infections (either internal or external, bacterial or viral)
  • Parasites
  • Acute burns
  • Acute cuts

It's important for your massage therapist to know what medications you are on. Especially:

  • Blood thinners
  • Pain medication

Some conditions need special consideration from the massage therapist, but can still benefit from massage therapy. These include:

  • Brittle bone diseases such as osteoporosis
  • Connective tissue diseases such as EDS
  • Past injuries or surgeries
  • Cancer

This is by no means an exhaustive list. Please completely fill out our confidential intake notes prior to starting massage therapy.

Reviews

"Big reason I can still run as much as I do."

I have been seeing Bellevue Mobile Massage for years and I am
very happy with their bodywork. They are always on time. They use the best oils and her table is always clean and warm.  I have been running triathlon races for years now and I know having Lori on my side has been a big reason I can still run as much as I do.  I highly recommend this body work company!

"I do not think the pain would have resolved or improved without the massages."

I would highly recommend this place. I am currently 36-38 weeks pregnant and started experiencing severe back pain making it difficult for me to walk around my house. I was even having episodes of crying due to the pain. Each step was like someone stabbing me in the back. I tried physical therapy and it honestly only made it worse.

I was recommended to come here from a friend who had something similar during pregnancy as they do pregnancy massages. I ended up using all 3 of my massages within a 2 week period because after each massage I could honestly feel the difference.  I was not cured but can now walk around my house and even out of the house a little without horrific pain.

I do not think the pain would have resolved or improved without the massages. These were 3 of the best massages I have ever had. I do not typically do massages unless on vacation or a special occasion but this made me consider signing up for more because I really felt the benefit. Thank you!

"Blown AwaY"

I was blown away by the amount of experience they have with sports injuries.  Getting a full understanding of what happened the therapist began testing tensions and palpating. While working on the hamstrings and the area that was causing pain, The therapist realized that the pain was a referral from the actual issues lower and closer to the knee.

After working the "kinks" out of the hamstrings the therapist dug deeper and found that there was an unnatural pulling coming from the adductors on the same leg.  Upon further examination we learned that my adductors were unnaturally tight.  The therapist did what she could with her hands and then offered an additional modality that she thought might help loosen things up more quickly.
