Dr. Stanlick incorporates deep-tissue massage to reach the deepest layers of muscle and their connective tissue with slow and forceful strokes. This technique is particularly helpful with healing muscle damage from sprains, strains, other personal injuries that require pain management followed by a rehabilitation program tailored specifically for the ailment.
Swedish massage is the technique Dr. Stanlick selects for patients who need an overall relaxing yet energizing experience. Gentle, elongated strokes are coupled with deep circular movements, kneading, tapping and vibration to help alleviate tension and promote circulation.
With his background as a personal trainer, Dr. Stanlick is also experienced with sport massage, a technique similar to the Swedish massage but geared specifically toward patients who lead an active lifestyle that includes sports and physical activities. The gentle, tension-relieving sports massage can be used as part of pain management program to help treat existing injuries as it also helps prevent future injuries from occurring.
Trigger point massage is the most focused of his massage therapy techniques, designed to target specific trigger points. Trigger points are sensitive and often knotted areas of muscle fibers that can develop in muscles from overuse or injuries.
