MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

I practice the John Barnes Myofascial Release that concentrates on treating the three dimensional fascia that envelopes all the organs ,blood vessels, nerves, bones ,muscles and tendons in the body. When the fascia is strained from trauma, injury, infection, inflammation, disease or structural imbalances from osseous restrictions, leg length discrepancies, and pelvic rotation one is likely to experience pain and limited range of motion.  The Myofascial Release approach treats the cause of the pain. Clients experience an increase in range of motion, and a decrease or elimination of pain

 

 

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are small spots of tightly contracted muscles that are sensitive and may incur pain on other parts of the body. Trigger point therapy involves locating the trigger points causing pain then using direct pressure to deactivate them. Some trigger points may take multiple treatments to completely release. Trigger points play a role in a number of common painful conditions such as: low back pain, crick neck, shoulder pain, sciatica, rotator cuff pain, knee pain, and other conditions.

Heated Stones*

Heated Stones are used to help relax muscles, improve circulation and calm the nervous system. The heat allows the therapist to use less pressure to get the muscle to relax, this benefits clients that prefer light pressure.
Heated Stones are effective for the following conditions:

  • Lower and upper Back pain,

  • Pain in the shoulders and neck areas

  • Poor circulation

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Stress, tension, and, anxiety
