Deep Tissue & Myofascial Release
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. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as "adhesion's'").
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Neuromuscular reprogramming or NMR, is based on the principles of educational kinesiology. The idea behind neuromuscular reprogramming involves the recognition that tissue and muscle are not the only body parts affected by injury or trauma. The theory states that neurological patterns in the brain are also affected, which may promote continued pain signaling to nerves. However, with this modality the brain’s motor control center can learn and adopt new patterns.
This invigorating full-body massage utilizes light passive and active stretching and various massage techniques to help improve range of motion, improve blood circulation and flexibility. This massage is especially helpful after strenuous physical activity.
Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses primarily on the feet. Certain areas on the feet are linked to other areas and organs of the body. Through applying pressure to reflex areas on the feet promotes health in corresponding organs through energetic pathways. Reflexology has many benefits and is used to treat many conditions such as Peripheral Neuropathy.
