You will reap the benefits of myofascial release or massage therapy if it becomes a regular part of your life. My goal is for us to work together to take better care of your health, long-term.
Communication is key. I need to know what you're feeling, experiencing and what you're looking to gain in order to best help you. In turn, I will explain the treatment and what you can expect to gain from it.
Bodywork can help you heal. Whether it's to alleviate stress, injury, pain, or simply to relax, the benefits of bodywork can be life changing. I will work with you to achieve your goals.
Myofascial Release focuses on releasing the fascia which is the interconnected web of connective tissue that surrounds everything inside of us. Gentle, sustained pressure, usually 3-5 minutes, is held at areas of restriction until a softening occurs. Long holds and stretching may also be involved.
Therapeutic Massage is used to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. It may be targeted to specific areas of pain or restriction or used all over for full body relaxation. A combination of Swedish and Deep Tissue strokes will be applied as well as trigger point release and a few elements of MFR when appropriate.
Ask about Aromatherapy at your next session. I stock several gorgeous organic aromatherapy oils to enhance your massage plus available to purchase. For just $5 you can add whatever scent speaks to you at the moment and drift away into relaxation.
Cupping Therapy uses strong silicone suction cups to lift the fascia to release adhesions. Instead of compressing the tissues the negative pressure pulls up and frees the underlying restrictions. Cupping can be added to any session for free.
