Myotherapy Methods: Muscle and Mobility

Trigger Point

Trigger Point therapy is a healing technique based on the principle of free and uninterrupted energy flow in the body.  It helps activate the natural healing processes in the body, restoring  physical and emotional well-being. As a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Registered Nurse, I use these techniques to help patients reduce their stress and anxiety, and discomfort related to various musculoskeletal issues.

Table Thai Massage

With Table Thai or "Yoga massage" The therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches that are soothing, invigorating and relaxing. It's especially effective with stiff and sore back muscles due to exercise or arthritis. Unlike many massage modalities that utilize massage oils, Thai massage is usually does not, and so can be performed while you are fully clothed on a specialized table.

Sports Massage

Rapidly gaining popularity among a variety of active people including crossfitters, yoga enthusiasts, hikers, bikers, and non-sportsmen and women, sports massage helps in aiding recovery, improving mobility, and treating and preventing injury. It's a combination of different techniques used both pre and post event therapy to convey physical benefits as well as relaxation and stress reduction, improved concentration and coordination.

Reflexology

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet (or the hands). Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as stress, depression and anxiety, and enhance relaxation and sleep.

Myofascial Release

The goal of myofascial release is to loosen the thin layer of connective tissue (fascia) surrounding our muscles and joints so that it and other contiguous structures can move more freely.  It rebalances oxygenation, hydration, and range of motion and promotes healthy posture and movement.

Traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage

With traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, patients tell me they feel relaxed and renewed after each session. I tailor your session to work on your specific goals and needs. I love showing my patients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health.

Sports Cupping Therapy

Used by Olympic athletes, bodybuilders, crossfitters, sports icons and people in the know, sports cupping has become a popular and powerful myotherapy technique.  This 30 minute session includes light massage and cupping therapy.  Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine based on Ayur Vedic tradition.  Using specialized cup shaped instruments, local suction is created on the skin; mobilizing blood flow in order to promote healing  and circulation. (Note: This technique can leave marks on the skin which fade away in a few days to a week. Consult with your therapist to find out if cupping therapy is appropriate for you.)

Bamboo Fusion

A specialty massage where the therapist uses warmed oiled bamboo sticks-about the size of a small rolling pin as an extension of their own hands, to knead and stretch the skin and fascia, and warm, mobilize and relax muscle tissue.  The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help soften tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.  A very soothing treatment especially in cold winter months.  Complimentary with any myotherapy session upon request.
