Modalities

 

 

 Myofascial Release®

Developed by John Barnes, PT while seeking relief from his own chronic pain, Myofascial Release is a whole body, three-dimensional technique applied with sustained gentle pressure, traction or compression into fascial restrictions to reduce pain and restore mobility. 

 

Fascia 

 Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web without interruption. This tissue covers the muscles, bones, organs and vessels down to the cellular level. In its normal state, it is relaxed and wavy, able to stretch and move without restriction. Whether through trauma, inflammation, repetitive strain or poor posture, fascia can shorten and solidify, producing pain and seemingly unrelated symptoms in adjacent areas. 

 

Medical Massage

  Working with and under prescription from your physician on specific areas, each visit includes session notes, physician communication and, in most cases, insurance billing. Methods used are usually neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release and others as prescribed.

 

Neuromuscular Therapy 

A highly specific technique of releasing soft tissue by working trigger points and the attachments of specific muscles. 

 

 Deep Tissue 

 Using firmer pressure, joint movements, friction and vibration. Usually less gliding movements as found in relaxation work

 

Sports Massage

 Used pre-event to increase flexibility and boost circulation, and post-event to relieve spasms and prevent soreness.

 

 Tempomandibular Treatment

I work both outside and inside the mouth with Myofascial Release and neuromuscular techniques to help relieve pain

 

Positional Release 

A method of moving spasming muscles away from the direction of injury, reducing pain. 


Maternity Massage 

Very helpful in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters to help alleviate sciatica, back and neck pain as well as leg cramps. A special cushion is used to allow the mother to lie face down.
