By combining the two we create a dialogue between the sensory (how we feel) neurons and motor (how we move) neurons which is crucial for healthy tissue. The massage targets the superficial fascia surrounding your muscles and releases these surface adhesions, tightness and stiffness. The Myofascial Release Therapy is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure to the fascia intended to eliminate pain and restore motion. Together they reduce joint stiffness by expanding the joint capsules and reduces tightness in muscles, which benefits include making you stronger, making you taller, reducing pain and creating a younger appearance by improving your posture.
Today, the world of fascia research has turned our perceptions of body form and function, structure and physiology upside down. Fascia has become the new darling of science such that novel discoveries are surfacing at a rapid pace.
We describe fascia as a 3D web like tissue that connects, and runs through all of our skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and organs. This extensive connective tissue holds our internal body in place. It is both strong and flexible but repeated incorrect movements cause it to adhere incorrectly. These adhesions cause pain and affect our physical and emotional well-being.
Your first session is a 45 minute complimentary consultation which includes a 15 minute initial assessment followed by 30 minutes of combined massage and Myofascial Stretch Therapy.
