This massage therapy is goal orientated, with a treatment plan designed for the individual. The therapist will use a variety of techniques to help loosen the muscles and connective tissue. Techniques such as neuromuscular therapy, deep tissue, active and myofascial release, trigger and pressure point therapy, sports massage and stretching. Loosening the tissue will create more space within the muscular system. This will allow the muscles to slide past one another more effectively and effortlessly. The end result is feeling more comfortable within your body.
This massage is therapeutic. Meaning, that we focus on the client's complaints. Targeting the identified areas of pain, and working on the antagonistic muscles that causes the issue. This is massage with movement! Using passive range of motion will shorten and lengthen the muscle fibers. Massage is applied going against or with the direction. When a tight muscle is found, pressure is added. The muscles are moved to passively shorten and lengthen the muscle. Sometimes the movement is active! Activating a tight muscle and applying massage against its direction helps release muscular adhesions.
