YOUR RELEASE.

Massage
Therapy

As an athlete, there’s been clear improvement in how my legs feel during and after the game since I started massage treatments at SCU.

Relax.
Release.
Renew.

Our hands understand. Treat your body, relieve your stress, and improve your overall well-being with massage therapy. Massage therapy is a natural healing art of skilled manipulation of muscles and soft tissue — with therapists using their hands, fingers, arms, and elbows — to relieve ailments and promote health.

  • Swedish Massage

    Swedish Massage

    Swedish massage is focused on relaxing and energizing the body by utilizing a variety of strokes, kneading, vibrations, and tapping, and pressure techniques to help aid blood flow, remove toxins from the tissue, stretch ligaments and tendons, and relieve physical and emotional tension.

  • Deep Tissue Massage

    Deep Tissue Massage

    Deep tissue massage focuses on manipulation of the deepest layers of muscle tissue in painful and stiff areas. It involves sustained pressure to help break up scar tissue and reduce tension.

  • Sports Massage

    Sports Massage

    Sports massage is used to prevent and heal injuries to muscles and tendons in athletes by focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and aggressive movements performed in physical activity.

  • Myofascial Release Technique (MRT)

    Myofascial Release Technique (MRT)

    Myofascial release focuses on the tissue that surrounds and supports muscles throughout the body. MRT is used for treatment of skeletal muscle mobility and pain by massaging, stretching areas that feel rigid, and aids in releasing pressure and tightness.

Your
First Visit.

Massage sessions range from 20 minutes to 110 minutes. At the start of your first session, you will be asked a few preliminary questions to determine your overall health and condition. Taking into consideration your health history, lifestyle, as well as areas of physical pain, and stress, your massage therapist can tailor your session accordingly. Your session may be a full-body massage or a deep focused massage to precisely address your needs.

You will be given privacy to remove your clothing to your comfort level. Please remove all jewelry and other articles that might interfere with your massage. You will then lie on a massage table covered by a sheet.

Your pressure preference (light, medium, or deep pressure) and comfort will be checked throughout your session. We may dim the lights and play music to help you relax. Oils or lotions may be used to help movement and techniques. If you are allergic to oils or lotions, please advise us beforehand.

Your therapist will employ a range of techniques from gentle stroking and kneading to deep circular movements, vibrations, and tapping.

Once your session is completed, your massage therapist will discuss with you a customized plan that will help address your health needs and wellness goals. SCU is an integrated health system that focuses on a whole-person approach. This means massage therapy could be an aspect of a comprehensive care plan.
