Active Release Techniques
Active Release Techniques is a patented soft tissue manipulation that treats tight and injured muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerve entrapments. A session usually lasts 20 minutes and consists of an evaluation of movement, texture and tightness of the muscles. I then apply tension to a specific area while my client moves the muscle to release any adhesions and creates a better range of motion. Some of the problems it can help with is carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, back and neck pain, numbness and tingling down arms or legs, shin splints, plantar fascitis and more.
Sports Massage is specific to each individual person. Depending on your sport, different demands are made on the muscles. I incorporate various modalities to help get a full range of motion, prevent injuries or aid in injury rehab so you can achieve maximum performance.
Deep Tissue Massage
DeepTissueMassageuses various techniques that allow my clients to relax as I help the body with circulation, breaking up and releasing toxins, helping to break up scar tissue and adhesions, releasing stress and just having an overall well sense of being. With a minimum of an hour and a half for a full body massage, I work with the body's specific needs working on any tight spots or adhesions that may cause or have caused discomfort, loss of range of motion or discomfort.
Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage is passive stretching combined with pressure along your body’s natural energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle tension, and enhance your overall well-being. It will leave you feeling looser, taller, more energized and ready to play. Most Thai massage is done on the floor, however, this session will be done on a table. Be sure to wear some workout clothing which will allow for a full range of motion during the stretches.
Myofascial Therapy works with the body’s fascial system which intertwines throughout the body from head to toe. Myofascial is a gentle approach that melts the fascia to keep it pliable and the muscles gliding over each other. I place my hands flat with a soft tension and just hold while the fascia warms up and starts melting allowing release. Some areas require movement from the client which actually helps to neurologically release the injury so the muscle will retrain itself to relax.
Swiss Ball Workout
