Myofascial Release- Addresses movement restrictions and pain at the fascial level. Often paired with skin rolling and functional stretching, this therapy can facilitate increased range of motion, improved scar mobility, decreased localized pain levels in old or new injuries and increased tissue health during the healing process.

Fascial Counterstrain- Treats connective tissue dysfunction that can compress neural, vascular and ligamentous structures.  It is a gentle technique that allows the body to recover from protective responses and restores function quickly.  By decompressing the nerve endings in the fascia (connective tissue), pain, tissue tension and inflammation will decrease. 

Trigger Point Therapy- Addresses areas of hyper- irritable tissues that send so many signals to the spinal cord that it becomes overwhelmed. Trigger points have a sensation of burning, cold or grabbing. By finding the instigating area of pain, correct pressure or positional release techniques are used to release the tension.

Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage- A deep tissue technique applied with the soles of the feet. The therapist uses parallel overhead bars for support. Gravity allows for deeper engagement of tissues. Applied to the front and the back of the body including fee, neck, and shoulders.

Cupping- A technique that uses small cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin. The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. Cupping is much like the inverse of massage - rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. For most patients, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation

Reflexology- An alternative therapeutic treatment with a history going back thousands of years. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet which correspond to all the glands, organs, and parts of the body. With techniques unique to reflexology pressure is applied to these reflexes which can relieve stress, improve circulation, and help promote overall wellness.

Hot Stone Massage- Basalt stones are heated in a hot water bath between 130-140 degrees and then applied flowingly along the body and placed strategically to provide deep penetrating heat to help relieve chronic pain, improve circulation to tissues, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
