Types of Massage and Other Treatments

  • Myofascial Release (MFR)
    • MFR is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This alternative medicine therapy aims to relax constricted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles.  (*Fascia is a thin tough elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures and around muscle groups.)
  • Repetitive Use Injury Therapy (RUIT)
    • RUIT is caused by repetitive tasks that strain the muscles and nerves also known as  cumulative trauma disorder from over use. These techniques  help to release the impaired muscles and nerves 
  • Cranial-Sacral Therapy
    • Cranial-Sacral Therapy Is a form of bodywork that regulates the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using therapeutic touch to manipulate the joints of the cranium and sacrum to restore  balance.
  • Deep Tissue Massage
    • Deep Tissue Massage is the manual treatment of deep anatomical structures.  The work is slow, deep, and very specific - working either parallel with or perpendicular to the targeted muscles, tendons, or ligaments.  Among the many benefits of Deep Tissue Massage are reduced pain, improved mobility, increased range of motion (ROM); restored ease of movement, reduced muscle hypertonicity, tension, and spasm; reduced scar tissue and other fascial adhesions (which can impair both circulatory and nerve function in addition to creating mechanical restrictions), promote circulation (of both blood and lymph), reduced ischemia (by releasing hypertoned muscles and reducing fascial adhesions).
  • Swedish Massage
    • Swedish Massage is the most common massage technique using relaxing long strokes, circulating strokes and kneading muscle groups.
  • Hot Stone Treatment
