Myofascial Release

Myofascial tissue, also called fascia, is the soft connective tissue that surrounds and supports your muscles and joints. It holds all your muscles, organs and bones in place, but it is as sensitive as it is strong. 

Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.  

Acupressure Neck Massage

This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and piezoelectric phenomenon: a low grade (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

This technique can be applied anywhere to the body including around the organs (visceral manipulation).

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
