Each session at Tonic Trails is individually tailored to your needs. Therapists will draw from the following modalities to create a treatment focused on decreasing discomfort and restoring balance to the body.
Deep Tissue Massage
This technique involves ﬁrm pressure and slower strokes to the deep layers of muscle and fascia. It is beneﬁcial for relieving chronic pain and limited range of motion in areas such as the neck, back, and legs.
A specialized form of manual therapy that works with the central nervous system to alleviate pain and dysfunction by releasing trigger points, adhesions, ischemia, nerve compression/entrapment, as well as improving postural distortions and poor biomechanics. Techniques used include Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Energy Technique, Active Isolated Stretching, Positional Release, and Myofascial Release.
used to treat skeletal muscle restrictions and pain by releasing tightness in myofascial connective tissue. Deep, sustained pressure is applied to the tissue without lotion.
Used before, during, and after an athletic event in order to help an individual sustain peak performance as well as aid in recovery. Sports Massage uses classic Swedish strokes, stretching, and cross ﬁber friction to improve ﬂexibility, reduce swelling, relieve muscle tension/soreness, and prevent injury.
This technique is used to stimulate the flow of lymph, the fluid that transports white blood cells, oxygen, and nutrients throughout the body. Basically, the lymph system takes the garbage out and brings the groceries in. While some selling is a good thing, problems arise when the area gets backed up and the area becomes stagnant, nothing is moving in or out. Lymph Drainage is incorporated into a session to manage lymphedema (inflammation) from injury as well as detoxification. We have seen a few rattlesnake bites here and LD was a powerful tool to relieve the leg of incredible inflammation and bruising. Add essential oils to your LD session and your body will thank you.
A stainless steel tool is used to break up scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation to restore range of motion, muscle tonicity, and relieve pain.
Therapeutic massage during pregnancy provides support and pain relief to the muscles and joints of a woman’s changing body. Low back and hip pain are a common complaint during pregnancy as the growing fetus pulls the pelvis into more of an anterior tilt. Other beneﬁts include reduced swelling, increased circulation, relaxation, and better sleep.
The application of essential oils on muscles and joints during a treatment is an incredible way to enhance the benefits of massage. Therapists will use several pure, therapeutic grade oils from Restore Hope Oils to decrease pain, swelling, spasms, bruising, and stress as well as increase circulation, improve mood, and mental clarity. It is quite the treat for the mind and body. $10
Benefits of Arnica Oil
We Proudly Use Arnica Oil and Restore Hope Oils During Our Massage Services
Arnica has been used to soothe inflammation, bruising, and muscle pain since the 1500s. The helenalin in the flower is a powerful anti-inflammatory that provides the medicinal properties of the oil. Most commonly the oil is used for bruising, arthritis, sprains, and muscle soreness. The Arnica Oil used and sold at Tonic Trails is responsibly wildcrafted in the mountains of Colorado. The flowers are placed in mason jars with jojoba oil and sit in my windowsill for 2 months allowing the sunshine to extract all that healing goodness. You will find that this Arnica Oil is more powerful that those found in the store.
Tonic Trails has also partnered with Restore Hope Oils to bring you some of the best quality therapeutic essential oils around. Gavin Poulton, the founder of Restore Hope Oils, is so passionate about essential oils and his knowledge is mind blowing. I have worked with many different essential oil companies over the years, and these are hands down the purest and most effective. Plus, Gavin is just a wonderful human and has an incredible story about his own health journey including a healing a rare liver disease with one of his own essential oil formulations.
