Deep Tissue Massage
A type of massage that releases chronic muscle tension with strong pressure and slow, deep strokes across the muscle fibers, helping to break up adhesions between muscle fibers and hence increasing efficiency of the muscle and enhancing tissue repair.
Similar to deep tissue massage, but with a targeted focus on specific muscle groups.
Gentle passive-pressure work with the spine and the skull to ease the restrictions of nerve passages, optimize the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord, and gently help restore proper alignment of bones (especially of the skull and sacrum).
Myofascial Release (Fascial Manipulation)
Direct myofascial release creates changes in the myofascial structures by stretching, elongation of fascia, or mobilizing adhesive tissues. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are reached. The indirect method involves a gentle stretch, with only a few grams of pressure, which allows the fascia to ‘unwind’ itself. The dysfunctional tissues are guided along the path of least resistance until free movement is achieved.
Trigger Point Therapy
Identifying trigger points, resolving them with pressure and, if all trigger points have been deactivated, elongating the structures affected along their natural range of motion and length.
