Massage Treatment for Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome

Low-back pain, knee pain, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, sciatic nerve pain and other lower body pathologies can be caused by even the slightest dysfunctions in your daily movement patterns.  Luckily, our therapists are prepared to relieve all of your lower-body soft-tissue dysfunctions with deep and specific massage therapy techniques.

Many of our clients have presented with chronic pain due to sciatica, sciatic nerve pain, piriformis syndrome, knee pain, hip pain, gluteal pain and low back pain.  After receiving specialized bodywork, clients continue to report quality of life improvements and substantial reduction of pain.

If you are experiencing sciatica due to a bulging disc, it's important to note that while a massage treatment will certainly be helpful, it is unlikely that it will be able to cure your sciatica due to the nature of the problem.  The McKenzie Method is recommended for this type of sciatica and we recommend looking up a Physical Therapist that is McKenzie Method certified in addition to your massage treatments.

We have found through experience that most clients presenting with sciatic nerve pain are actually experiencing Piriformis Syndrome or a similar dysfunction.  Massage therapy can be extremely effective in relieving this type of sciatic pain in as little as one treatment.  These symptoms will often continue to come back over time, so it's a good idea to come back for regular maintenance as needed.

Massage Therapy for Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome

Although you may be in a lot of pain right now, it's important to understand that the massage therapy to overcome your pain does not need to be painful.  In fact, massage therapy should always feel great when done right!  Our therapists utilize deep tissue massage techniques, applied heat, active release techniques, myofascial release and Thai massage techniques adapted for the table. 

First, your muscles are warmed up using firm pressure and Swedish massage techniques.  Next, heat is applied using hot towels while also performing myofascial release techniques to create more space to work around the joints and problem areas.  Your therapist may also employ Neuromuscular Therapy to facilitate the release of tight muscles.  Once there is ample space to allow deep tissue work in the areas of dysfunction, your therapist will move your legs and hips in and out of stretches while applying firm and steady pressure to indicated areas. 

Now, you've had some time to become deeply relaxed.  This is your therapist's cue to gradually sink deeper and deeper through superficial muscles all the way down to where the pain is originating.  When these spots are found, your therapist will apply steady pressure until the tension is released.  Mindfulness, patience, communication and inner calm enable your therapist to listen carefully to the communication from your body so that they may use the right techniques to facilitate your liberation from pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

1: Should I arrive early?

Yes, 10 minutes early.  This will give you some time to fill out our quick intake and use the restroom if needed.  Please try to arrive no more than 10 minutes early.

2:  How much should I undress?

You may undress to your level of comfort.  Expert draping techniques will be utilized to keep you feeling comfortable and secure at all times.

In order to receive the most effective treatment possible, it is best to undress completely to allow full access to your hips, glutes and legs for deep tissue therapy and myofascial release.  With that being said, it also works perfectly fine to wear minimal underwear that doesn't cover up your glutes or that could be easily moved out of the way.

If you are not comfortable undressing, there is still a great deal of techniques we can use to address your sciatica.  Your therapist will happily meet you at your comfort level and exercise excellent communication to ensure your continued comfort without disturbing your ability to deeply relax.

3: Will my glutes (buttocks) be uncovered?

The glutes are considered a sensitive and personal area so extra communication and care is used to ensure your continuous comfort while also achieving the specified goals of your treatment.  If you are comfortable having your glutes uncovered, your therapist will use effective draping to uncover your glute/s while maintaining coverage of your genitals and anus at all times in accordance with state laws and massage regulations.

4: Exactly what parts of my glutes (buttocks) will my therapist be working on?

Within the boundaries of your individual comfort level and the comfort level of your therapist, any and all muscles of the glutes (excluding the anus) may be massaged and stretched in order to create space between the muscles of the glutes and the sciatic nerve in the area/s that the nerve is being impinged upon.

Please note, if you ever feel uncomfortable during your massage it is important to immediately inform your therapist of your discomfort so that they can immediately stop what they are doing and adjust their technique to fit within the boundaries of your comfort level.

5: How often should I get massaged?

Once a week or more is best for chronic and debilitating issues that are preventing you from functioning.  As you improve, you can reduce your frequency to suit your needs.  Once a month or bi-weekly is great for maintenance.

6: Do you offer any discounts?

Ask about our Frequent Treatments Plan to significantly reduce your cost when coming in 2 or more times per month!  If you come in between 7 am and 9 am, you will receive our 10% off Early bird discount.
