Deep Pressure Massage

Therapeutic Massage

The purpose of the practice of Therapeutic massage is to enhance the general health and well-being of the recipient. This massage style can be a full-body session or can focus on specific areas like the back, neck, hips or legs. This work is designed to release your deeper muscle layers and provide relief from acute or chronic pain patterns while assessing the cause of your discomfort. As a result, muscle tension and toxins are released allowing blood and oxygen to circulate properly. Our therapists will help you understand your body to assist in realigning your posture, while creating a maintenance program to unwind your patterns of restriction.

Advanced Myofacial Release

Myofascial release is the three-dimensional application of sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to eliminate fascial restrictions and facilitate the emergence of emotional patterns and belief systems that are no longer relevant or are impeding progress. First, an assessment is made by visually analyzing the human frame, followed by the palpation of the tissue texture of various fascial layers. Upon locating an area of fascial tension, gentle pressure is applied in the direction of the restriction. Myofascial release is an effective therapeutic approach in the relief of cervical pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological dysfunction, restriction of motion, chronic pain, and headaches. What make this  advanced is the extensive training and certifications through an Advanced Myofacial continue education program. Who are professionals affiliated with organizations including the Rolf Institute® and other leading schools and centers worldwide.

Neuromuscular Therapies

This comprehensive program of soft-tissue manipulation balances the body’s central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system. Based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system initiates and maintains pain, the goal is to help relieve the pain and dysfunction by understanding and alleviating the underlying cause. Neuromuscular therapy can help individuals who experience distortion and biomechanical dysfunction, which is often a symptom of a deeper problem. It is also used to locate and release spasms and hypercontraction in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, rebuild the strength of injured tissues, assist venous and lymphatic flow, and restore postural alignment, proper biomechanics, and flexibility to the tissues.

Trigger Point Therapy

or Compressive Release was developed in the 1940’s by Dr. Janet Travel, Trigger Point Therapy is a massage tecnhnique that involves applying deep, focused pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction. A trigger point is more than a tender spot in a muscle. Often incorrectly referred to as a knot, a trigger point is an area of tightly contracted muscle tissue. The tightness causes a marked decrease in circulation resulting in a painful, hyperirritable spot. Unlike a knot, Trigger Points cause a painful response at the “knot” with referred pain to other areas of the body.

Deep Tissue

massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia (also called connective tissue). Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish Massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense and more focused.

Deep tissue massage is used to release long term or chronic muscle pain and restriction. Over time, restrictions gradually evolve into limitations in the elasticity of the muscle. No longer able to function as it was intended; the muscle becomes inflamed, develops reduced circulation, movement limitations, pain and adhesions (bands of dense, tight tissue often referred to as knots). Left unchecked, chronic pain patterns develop.  Read more…

Thai Yoga Massage

Traditional Thai massage is deeply therapeutic in that it contacts deep layers of fascia tissue. Clients are fully clothed on a floor mat while the practitioner uses ropes to stretch, compress and walk on the body. (This modality is contracted out.)
