The Root of Wellness total relaxation massages are a great way to promote healing and reduce pain and soreness from a recent surgery. A Root of It massage may be the answer you are looking for! These include; deep tissue, myofascial release, and cross fiber friction massage. These massages are a great way to release adhesions that occur after surgery. In order to massage the incision area; it is good to wait until the scar has fully formed. This usually takes about 6-8 weeks for this to occur. Our massage therapist can apply light pressure around the incision site to gradual reduce some adhesions.

There is always increased stiffness, swelling, and even reduced flexibility following surgery. Around the incision site are underlying adhesions to muscle tissue and fascia which make up the scar tissue. It is vital that that incision site and joints be massaged after healing. In is vital for post-surgery patients to seek massage therapy immediately after healing of the incision in order for them not to suffer needlessly in pain and stiffness for months and even years. If left untreated there can be a severe decrease in the range of motion due to muscle contractures, muscle adhesions, scar tissues, and guarding muscles around the incision area. A post-surgery recovery massage can be just what you need to a fast recovery after your surgery. It has been scientifically proven through countless study that massage therapy speeding up the healing time after a surgery.
