Bear Creek Massage offers clients therapeutic massage in a professional environment. We tailor each massage therapy session to your specific needs to facilitate deep, long-lasting results. Whether you want to peel away layers of stress, restore mobility to injured muscle tissue, ease stiffened joints, or relieve hot spots of pain, we assess and apply variety of treatment techniques with the whole person and their goals in mind.
Age, injury, wear and tear, poor posture, injury, stress and other factors can cause our facia – the fibrous tissue encasing our muscles – to manifest tension, restrictions and imbalance within our bodies. Myofascial Release techniques are a very effective hands-on approach that works to 'release' and rebalance our muscle and connective soft tissue system. In order to address any connective tissue problem areas you may be experiencing, an initial full body assessment is completed prior to your first treatment.
As part of our whole-health approach, we educate our clients about self-administered pain-management techniques, including stretching and strengthening exercises, and hot and cold therapy. Bear Creek Massage therapy is dedicated to our clients' health and well being.
