Massage Therapy

Myofascial Release, John F. Barnes Approach

This type of manual therapy uses sustained pressure with stretch that is applied to the fascia or connective tissues to release  restrictions, correct faulty posture, eliminate pain and restore proper motion. This is not a massage, but an advanced form of manual therapy. Myofascial Release is a leading-edge hands on therapy for treating chronic pain and injuries that has not been resolved using traditional methods.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands on therapy to help bring the nervous system to proper functioning. This technique gently releases constricted fascia (connective tissue) that surrounds the spinal cord and brain from your sacrum (bottom of spine) to the head of your cranium. This helps with headaches, TMJ syndrome, dizziness, vertigo and many other issues.

Dual Therapist Myofascial

This approach helps increase the rate at which change occurs. This also allows to address more fascial restrictions and to do so more thoroughly and expedite results in less sessions.
You also may have 30 minutes for single therapist then, 30 minutes of dual therapy. Total time 60 minutes

Active Isolated Stretching

This type of stretching exercise is interactive and practitioner assisted. Each muscle and joint stretch is isolated. Unlike antiquated forms of stretching techniques, active isolated stretching is performed with a maximum of a 2 second hold but, repeated 5-10 times of 2 sets each. This keeps your body from going into defense mode.
