Massage and Myofascial Release

How do you unwind and relax?

Massage can be a useful tool to help the body unwind in today’s fast pace environment.

Poor postural habits and overuse patterns can contribute to increased tension and disruption of the harmonious flow of your body’s musculoskeletal system. Many techniques can be customizable to your body and muscle tissues needs. These techniques include but are not limited to efleurrage, petrissage, and skin rolling.

Myofascial release is another technique that uses forceful passive movement of the musculofascial elements through their restrictive directions beginning with its most superficial layers and progressing into depth while taking into account its relationship with the surrounding joints of concern. This technique can be very useful with a multitude of injuries in which the connective tissue becomes disrupted by pain, joint dysfunction, and other outside forces. Depending on your medical history you may also benefit from Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

All of these massage techniques can play a complementing role in your physical therapy plan of care
