HM® Orthopedic Massage

San Diego Pilates, HM® Orthopedic Massage, and Gyrotonic®

The Hendrickson Method® Orthopedic Massage is an advanced system of massage and manual therapy which is designed to loosen muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. This unique massage technique is developed by Tom Hendrickson. Using a rythmic, deep, cross-fiber muscle approach, this massage elongates the muscle, promotes a healthy and even-balanced level of hydration in the surrounding area.

This method is highly effective and efficient for treating acute and chronic pain, increasing range of motion, and easing tension. Additionally, this massage technique promotes healing by working the muscle and tissues in a relaxed state.

This technique is ideal for the weekend warrior who suffers from the overload of fitness, athletics and fun, as well as the consistent exerciser who feels pain from the repetitive stress of sport, such as golf, tennis, horseback riding, running, etc. People with spinal and pelvic concerns such as scoliosis, herniated disc, sacro-iliac misalignment or people suffering from unexplained chronic pain will find relief and increased movement with this massage.
