The Science of Wellness
Do not let the luxurious, pampering imagery fool you. This is hard science. It changes the body physically- toning muscles, improving circulation, boosting immunity, reducing stress and augmenting physical function. Professional athletes, from golfers, to soccer players, to gymnasts rely on regular massage and myotherapy treatments to enhance their performance. You should too. In fact, myotherapy has a positive impact on every system of the body!
The Art of Serenity
Myotherapy can feel fantastic. It increases your body self awareness and sensitivity, while reducing your stress, tension and anxiety levels. Your nervous system will quiet from the centering and balancing effect. Your mind will clear, relax, and sharpen its focus. Your posture will improve. After just one session.
With Thai Myotherapy or "Yoga massage" The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. If you've been looking for a change from your traditional Swedish massage, or you are particularly stiff or sore, Thai massage may be just what you're looking for. Unlike many modalities that utilize oils or lotions, Thai massage uses none. It can be performed on a padded mat on the floor or on a treatment table like I do.r oin a specialized table.
The goal of myofascial release is to stretch and loosen the thin layer of connective tissue (fascia) surrounding our muscles and joints so that it and other contiguous structures can move more freely, promoting circulation, mobility and communication. The patient's motion is restored and pain is substantially reduced or even eliminated.
Traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage
With traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, patients claim to feel relaxed and renewed after each session. I tailor your session to work on your specific goals and needs. I love showing my patients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health and well-being.
Trigger Point Myotherapy
Trigger point myotherapy is a noninvasive treatment consisting of trigger point compression, passive stretching, and a system of corrective exercises. Pressure is applied and held for several seconds with the fingers, knuckles, and sometimes the elbow, relaxing the muscles as they release stored lactic acid. This encourages blood and oxygen circulation to the muscle.
New! Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many reasons, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue therapy.
Cupping got some mainstream attention by athletes like Michael Phelps and Conor McGregor. It leaves marks on your skin for quite a while but cupping is considered safe and beneficial by those who receive it, as long as you go to a trained health professional.
