Therapeutic training methods used:
Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) is a specialized treatment of muscles, ligaments, soft tissues and the nervous system. Its primary functions include, locating ischemia (tight tissue with reduced blood flow), releasing myofascial trigger points (hypersensitive points within muscles), decreasing neural entrapment (pressure on nerves by muscles and other soft tissues), assisting nerve compression (pressure on nerves by osseous and other bonelike tissues, such as cartilage or discs), evaluating postural assessment (assessment of the body as a whole), and observing dysfunctional gait patterns (manner of movement when walking). NMT is highly effective for clients who present with chronic or acute pain and is successful in reducing or eliminating longstanding painful conditions. This method is ideal when working with auto related injuries, increasing range in motion, and hypersensitive areas due to repetitive movements or pre/post surgical procedures.
Myofascial Release (MFR) Fascia is the connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body. This gentle sustained pressure into the connective tissue restrictions are used to eliminate pain and restore motion. Fascia is continuous throughout the body wrapping itself around every muscle, bone and organ. It is the glue that holds us together.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) This gentle hands-on method is designed to evaluate and enhance the physiological functioning of the membranes, tissues, fluids, and bones surrounding or associated with the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, releases restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is a technique for bringing psychotherapeutic elements into CranioSacral therapy as the mind and body work through the effects of past trauma.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a type of massage that encourages the natural drainage of lymph to carry the waste products away from the tissues and back toward the heart.
Please ensure you are well hydrated 24 hours prior to, during and after your session.
