Massage Techniques include:
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY: (a specific Myofascial Release technique)
Direct pressure is applied to the specific muscle spasm in order to deactivate a muscle cell spindle. One advantage of Trigger Point Therapy is that it identifies and works very specific points of the body… specifically, those places where the pain occurs, more often providing greater long-term pain relief.
Gentle, less-invasive sustained pressure that elongates the fascia adhesions, releasing pain and assisting the body to return to proper alignment. Fascia is a single unit that provides surface and deep tissue continuity throughout the body connecting head to toe.
MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUE (M.E.T.):
Hands-on and interactive form of stretching which involves direct access to muscle energy designed to improve range of motion.
NEUROMUSCULAR RELEASE :
Utilizes the important connection between nerves and muscle; it combines one or more of the techniques of Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, and Muscle Energy Techniques.
Aggressive deep-tissue care focused on muscle to joint stretching; essential for extreme pre/post physical activity.
Smoothly-honed bamboo tools kept at 160° to release tension and treat trigger point discomfort.
Light or heavy pressure Deep-level muscle technique which focuses on cross fiber tissue manipulation.
