CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It helps relieve a full spectrum of pain, illness and dysfunction including: headaches/migraines, chronic back/neck pain, reduce stress/tension, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, TMJ syndrome, scoliosis, motor-coordination impairments, PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder.
Deep tissue massage therapy focuses on releasing deep layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic tension and somatic contractions which cause stiff necks, lower back pain, and sore shoulders. It is effective for the treatment of chronic pain, limited mobility, recovery from injuries such as whiplash, falls, sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries like carpel tunnel syndrome, poor posture, osteoarthritis pain, fibromyalgia, muscle tension or muscle spasm.
The myofascial release approach is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and resulting pain and restriction of motion. Practitioners gently and firmly use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted fascia. Direct myofascial release seeks for changes in the myofascial structures by stretching, elongation of fascia, or mobilizing adhesive tissues. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia releasing adhesion in the deep tissues.
Relaxation/Swedish massage is deeply relaxing and is the most common and best-known type of massage in the West. Swedish massage combines various hands-on techniques including gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to break up muscle knots, called an adhesion. Massage therapy helps you relax, re-align and rejuvenate. Research has proven that massage therapy increases immune function, decreases stress levels and reduces recovery time in many medical conditions.
