This pain management technique is based on the physiological principles of ischemia (lack of blood in the tissues), trigger points, nerve compression/entrapment, postural distortion and biomechanics in the treatment of soft tissue manifestations of the human body.
Therapeutic massage provides a reduction to stress by relieving tight and sore muscles associated with chronic tension. Massage increases circulation, slows the heart rate, improves circulation and provides more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, dramatically decreasing the physiological effects of stress.
Deep muscle massage is a technique administered specifically to the muscles and fascia. This 50-minute massage begins with light strokes to warm the tissues and as these tissues relax, it enables the therapist to apply deeper pressure to the muscles to enhance muscle relaxation and reducing inflammation.
Myofascial Release is a three-dimensional, therapeutic application of sustained pressure and movement into the fascia in order to eliminate restrictions. A postural evaluation is done followed by the palpation of the various layers of fascia. Gentle pressure is then applied in the direction of the restriction. Myofascial release is an effective way to provide relief to pain caused by acute or chronic conditions.
An ancient Chinese therapy, reflexology is a technique that involves manipulation of specific reflex points on the foot that correspond to other parts of the body. “Zones” on the foot are stimulated to relieve congestion in the body and provide an energy flow that promotes self-healing and provides balance in the body. It is used to relieve stress and stimulate blood and lymph flow.
A therapeutic approach, Lymphatic Techniques provide the body with a resource to enhance lymph flow in the body. Through mild stimulation of the soft tissues, the flow of lymph increases, providing a reduction to post-surgical swelling, improving the appearance of skin and providing a heightened the sense of well-being.
