myo-fascial release

Myo-fascial Release

A safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential time element has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascial) to elongate.

Deep Tissue Massage

Is really a misnomer in the field of massage therapy. It may include elements of Sports massage, Myo-Fascial Release, Shiatsu, Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy and more. In general terms deep tissue is a generalized classification of many different types of work that all have one thing in common, depth of pressure. Almost all deep tissue forms of massage therapy have a specific treatment goal in mind.

Post event massage relieves pain, prevents stiffness, and returns muscles to normal posture.
