We all know that massage can promote relaxation and well-being. Though, as always with the human body, there is real physiology in play. Our Licensed Massage Therapists are highly experienced with expertise in deep tissue and trigger-point therapy. We incorporate myofascial release and passive stretches, as well as Reiki, pre-natal and hot stone massage.
Trigger-point therapy — which is NOT pressure point massage — involves deactivating trigger-points that may be causing local pain or directed pain and sensations, like headaches, in other parts of the body. Manual pressure and other techniques are applied to these points to relieve myofascial pain.
Myofascial release (MFR) is a soft tissue therapy to treat pain and skeletal muscle immobility. It improve blood and lymphatic circulation, stimulates the muscle stretch reflex and relaxes contracted muscle.
