Deep Tissue Massage
Technique applied to the deeper layers of muscle tissue. The idea is to release chronic tension in the body, using slow strokes and deep pressure on tight areas, either using thumbs, knuckles, the forearm or the elbow. Deep tissue Massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. It usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massager. The soreness means that your muscle have got blood flowing within its fibers and the dead cells once stuck in them are being flushed out of the tissue.
Trigger Point Therapy
A myofascial Trigger Point is a hyper-irritable area within a taut band of muscle and/or its fascia. The area is painful on compression and can evoke characteristic referred pain. These trigger points, when they become active or latent, show up in the same places in muscles in every person. To help treat trigger points and their referred pain, it is necessary to apply pressure to the trigger point to break the cycles of spasm and pain, allowing the muscle to relax and heal. Usually the client may notice referred pain in other areas of the body that could be several inches from the area that is being pressed.
Fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds all the muscles in our body. If the fascia becomes restricted from overuse, inactivity, infection or trauma, the muscle will end up with less blood flow, being tight and painful. Myofascial release is used to stretch the fascia and bring the muscles to their normal functionality and mobility, by applying gentle pressure on the restricted spot. It is a vey soothing and effective technique, and has helped many people with acute and chronic conditions.
