Diana Llynne Massage Therapy offers a variety of therapeutic and healing massages
Swedish massage techniques are used to manipulate the soft tissue in the body. These techniques are used to promote relaxation, decrease stress levels and increase blood flow. Increased blood flow can help repair damaged tissue faster by bringing new white blood cells to the damaged area.
Deep tissue massage is used to treat chronic aches and pains. Techniques used to focus on the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. The movements are slower, deeper and concentrate on the areas with pain or restrictions. The purpose of deep tissue massage is to help increase range of motion in limited joints and relieve long term chronic pain.
Manual lymphatic drainage encourages lymph flow and reduces edema (swelling). When there is swelling resulting from a trauma these techniques are used to reduce the formation of scar tissue. The removal of fibrin from the initial lymphatics, reduces swelling, pain and restrictions in the injured area.
IFC uses medium frequency currents to produce a low frequency effect. This is a comfortable modality that can target specific tissue. IFC can be used to minimize or reverse atrophy, reduce swelling, relieve pain, and improve circulation which has formed as a result of trauma.
Therapeutic Ultrasound is the use of sound waves to penetrate the body
eliciting therapeutic benefit in specific target tissues. This modality is
pain free and can be used to decrease pain, hasten tissue healing time
and break down scar tissue.
