Release chronic patterns of muscular tension using slow strokes, direct pressure, or friction on a focused problem area. Techniques used consist of deep tissue, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and passive stretching.
Gua Sha and IAFM (Instrument Assisted Fascial Mobilization) are techniques which utilize tools to release fascial restrictions. These tools are beneficial for pulled muscles, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, repetitive stress from overuse, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, and more. Used in conjunction with deep tissue massage.
Through suction and negative pressure, cupping massage releases rigid soft tissue, lifts connective tissue and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. Cupping enables the body to release old restrictions and compensatory patterns and return to healthy functioning. Used in conjunction with deep tissue massage.
Far-infrared heat is beneficial because of its ability to penetrate human tissue. It heats the body directly instead of heating the air, reducing swelling and inflammation, aiding in muscle recovery and helping the joints and tendons become more elastic. Session consists of 60-90 minutes of massage with 30 minutes of infrared therapy.
