Myo Fascial Release
A hands-on technique performed with no oil involving sustained pressure into the myo fascial connective tissue. This therapy follows the Tom Meyers method an has pattern an structure in mind. Our fascial system, when interrupted, will act as a “straight jacket” to the system putting pressure on tissue, viscera and bone. When this happens to the body we take on limited range of motion, the body can experience decreased muscle strength, nerve pain and decreased circulation. It can even cause internal issues on the system. After receiving this therapy, clients’ report they “feel light and open.”
Negative Pressure Therapy/ Cupping
The use of glass cups or silicon cups applied to the body with either fire or strong suction the practitioner will apply these per client comfort. Cupping therapy can remove unwanted toxin that has built up in the bodies system, stimulate fresh blood flow and lymph flow. Decrease cellulite and smooth the skin. Athletes have been known to use cupping therapy as a secret weapon to their health and performance. You can expect the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple especially if there is an injury or energetic blockage under the area that has been cupped. Discoloration can last up to a few days to a couple of weeks, this however is not a bruise, it is simply old stuck blood being pulled through tissue. Please consult with practitioner about contraindications for this therapy.
Working on muscles an fascia inside the mouth to release Temporalmandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) this therapy is helpful with jaw popping, grinding, clicking, pain, stuck/lock jaw, headaches, migraines, and or disorder with mastification with the associated muscles.
IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization)
Tools used which enable practitioners/clinicians to efficiently locate an treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration. As in any manual therapy treatment, supplementation with exercises and additional modalities e.g. joint mobilization designed to correct bio-mechanics deficiencies by addressing musculoskeletal strength and muscle imbalances throughout the entire kinetic chain should be used in conjunction with IASTM. This controlled micro-trauma to affected soft tissue structure causes the stimulation of a local inflammatory response. Micro-trauma initiates re-absorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures.
