    · Deep and Soft tissue massage

    · Muscle and connective tissue (fascia) stretching and releasing

    · Home exercise prescription

    MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

     

    Myofascial release is a gentle no- invasive hands-on technique that works on the body’s connective tissue – fascia- to release physical restrictions and pain disorders caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues.

     

    Coming from a holistic tradition, it takes a mind-body approach, recognizing that emotional experiences and trauma can play an important part in our experience of pain.

     

    The benefits of Myofascial Release are:

    • Reduce pain.
    • Release knots/trigger points.
    • Improve movement and flexibility.
    • Improve muscle function.
    • Enhance circulation by breaking up the tight areas where blood flow may become restricted.
    • Reduce exercise-related soreness.

    Myofascial release is especially for people who experienced chronic pain from:

     

    · Accident and injury

    · Surgery and scar tissue

    · The repetitive nature of their work or leisure activities (e.g. computers or gardening)

    · Their posture

    · Stress

     

     

     

    VISCERAL MANIPULATION

     

    Gentle manual therapy that aids to release the restriction of the connective tissue (fascia) in the abdominal and pelvic cavities. The gentle forces encourage the normal movements of the organs (viscera) and allow them to glide smoothly within the body. Visceral Manipulation can potentially improve the function of the individual organs, organ systems, and the structural integrity of the entire body.

     

    Visceral Manipulation can help with the following conditions:

     

    - Constipation

    - Acid Reflux

    - IBS

    - Colitis

    - Ovary/ Menstrual symptoms

    - Endometriosis

    - Indigestion

    - Cramps

    - Abdominal pain

     

     

     

    DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

     

    A massage technique that's mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries with a firm and sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.

    Deep tissue massage will work out the knots from stressed, overworked muscles and connective tissue to alleviate immediate pain, as well as chronic joint and muscle pain. It also promotes faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.

     

    Deep tissue massage can help with different conditions such as:

     

    - Chronic pain

    - Limited mobility

    -Recovery from injuries

    - Repetitive strain injury

    - Muscle tension or spasm

    - After workout

     

     

     

    LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE

     

    Lymph drainage massage has a potential health benefit. This massage focuses on the lymphatic system and helps the body maintain proper blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions.

    Rhythmic movements with very light pressure stimulate the lymphatic system ( which is very superficial, close to the skin) and make the lymph fluid move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes, which filter all the debris and waste products present in the lymphatic system. It helps, in fact, to increase the flow of toxins through the body and back to the organs that eliminate them, such as the spleen and the liver.

     

    This massage is also used for people with lymphedema which involves swelling, generally, in one of the legs or arms, caused by lymph fluid, that is collected in the soft tissues, due to genetic disorders, injury, infection, cancer treatment, or surgery.

     

    Lymphatic drainage massage can be used in people suffering from:

     

    - Lymphedema

    - Swelling or edema

    - Skin disorders

    - Stress

    - Digestive problems

    - Arthritis
