Deep Tissue & Myofascial Release
Go deep, into the muscle layers of the body
Deep tissue is a mix of deep and superficial techniques with firm pressure. The lighter strokes effect to relax, warm and prepare the tissues before the deeper techniques are applied.
It uses relevant techniques (such as friction), lubricants and movements where adjust according to the client’s needs and response. As a deep massage it is used to treat chronic musculoskeletal imbalances, strains, sprains or any injury to the soft tissue.
In relation to the musculoskeletal system, friction provides relief to muscular tightness, stiffness, spasms and restrictions in the muscle tissue. Deep strokes can stretch the tissues that increase flexibility in the muscles due to muscular relaxation, and it also helps to free adhesions, break down scar tissue and decrease inflammation. As a result, it can help to restore range of motion to stiff joints, and in addition improved blood circulation brings more oxygen and nutrients into the muscles and joints.
Deep massage It is also used for conditions created by lifestyle for example (Overuse Syndrome) Repetitive strain injury and Back pain. It is designed to increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured area.
This leads to the healing process, which begins at the cellular level aiding soft tissues in repairing, restoring functional integrity and adapting back to health.
Myofascial release (MFR) is a very effective hands-on interactive technique that provides stretching, compression and sustained pressure into restricted areas of fascia (connective tissue) in the body to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. In myofascial pain syndrome, pressure on sensitive points (can be inflamed points) in your muscles (trigger points) causes pain in seemingly unrelated parts of your body. This is called referred pain. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively.
fancy way to describe muscle pain. It refers to pain and inflammation in the body's soft tissues. MPS is a chronic condition that affects the fascia (connective tissue that covers the muscles).
Trigger point therapy also uses this treatment by applying pressure on muscle tissues for pain management and related dysfunction in the body.
Linking strokes included in my longest treatments, effects to maintain the feeling of continuity and physical contact between completion of one stroke and commencement of another.
