This technique is a non-invasive yet effective way to promote healing and relieve pain. This technique is a tender mix of stretches and massage strokes that release the tension and free constrictions from your muscles. This massage is beneficial to all types, but especially for those who suffer from emotional stress, physical injuries, and poor posture. Myofascial is a balancing technique for the entire body.

NeuroMuscular/Trigger Point Therapy

These techniques manipulate muscles, tendons, and connective tissues to bring balance to the central nervous system. When there is restriction in the muscles, the nerves are often unable to signal properly, which leads to pain, weakness, and muscle compensation. Alternating levels of concentrated pressure are applied to the areas of specific muscle pain to help release the muscles and allow for proper transmission of the nerves. In addition, Trigger point therapy aids in breaking up adhesions (small painful lumps) in restricted muscles and resolving the referred pain that they often trigger elsewhere in the body.
