Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation and irritation of the plantar fascia – the ligament that runs from your heel bone to your toes. It can become painful due to long periods of standing, improper footwear, obesity, overuse, or exercise. Your doctor or massage therapist may recommend a Plantar Fasciitis Massage if you have plantar fasciitis. The deep strokes involved in this treatment help to relieve tension, reduce adhesions, and eliminate pain in the foot.

If you have tender, sore feet or are dealing with plantar fasciitis, a Therapeutic Foot Massage is the right service for you.
Your treatment will begin with a short assessment. Your massage therapist will go over your health history and any issues you want to address. You may or may not be asked to partially undress and lie under the linens on the table.
The modalities your therapist may choose to incorporate are; medium to deep tissue techniques, muscle stripping, cross fibre friction, myofascial release, soft tissue release, scar tissue release, and hydrotherapy.
You may feel some discomfort or tenderness during a therapeutic foot massage. It is important to maintain a dialogue on your comfort levels so your therapist can make adjustments with the pressure and techniques being utilized. Please understand that not all issues require deep tissue work or prolonged deep pressure. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat it as needed.
After the massage, you may feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist may also provide you with some aftercare advice, such as remedial exercises, stretching or self-massage techniques to help facilitate your rehabilitation and progress. A return date for your treatment plan will also be suggested to keep you on track.

Plantar Fasciitis Massage uses a deep tissue technique. Modern deep tissue massage has only been around for about 200 years. In 1949, deep tissue massage guidelines were developed by a Canadian doctor, Therese Phimmer.
Soon, practitioners began to use this technique for a wide range of soft tissue and pain disorders and conditions.
Plantar Fasciitis is a common condition that causes pain in the heel and foot. It is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. Massage can help by reducing the inflammation and tension in the fascia, which can alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with Plantar Fasciitis.
Deep tissue massage is typically the best type of massage for Plantar Fasciitis. The massage therapist will use firm pressure to work on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the foot, which can help to break up scar tissue and release tension in the fascia.
The number of massage sessions you will need depends on the severity of your condition. In general, it may take several sessions to see significant improvement. It is important to work with a qualified massage therapist who can develop a personalized treatment plan for your individual needs.
Massage for Plantar Fasciitis can be uncomfortable at times, especially if you have a lot of tension and inflammation in the affected area. However, the massage therapist will work with you to adjust the pressure as needed to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the session. It is important to communicate with your massage therapist and let them know if you are experiencing any discomfort.
