ZEN SHIATSU MASSAGE
Zen Shiatsu aims to balance the flow of Chi (universal energy) within the body. It is based on the traditional Chinese acupuncture meridians and was created by Shizuto Masanuga. It consists of various forms of two handed compressions, thumb techniques along the acupuncture meridians, as well as light stretches. Emphasis is placed on moving the flow of Chi from the center of the body out through the limbs.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR)
-DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
MFR is a form of deep tissue massage utilizing a variety of techniques to address areas of chronic pain, tension or injury. Work is directed at the fascial layers (connective tissue surrounding muscles and bones) of the body. Adhesions (those tight spots you feel in your neck, back and shoulders) are treated utilizing trigger point therapy as well as muscle energy techniques. Ideal for disrupting chronic tension and pain patterns within the body, re-setting muscle proprioception, increasing muscle length and improving range of motion. If you suffer from chronic pain, repetitive motion injuries (carpal tunnel and tennis elbow or sciatica, piriformis syndrome, plantar fasciitis & thoracic outlet syndrome).
ORTHOPEDIC TESTING & MASSAGE
A form of medical massage designed to assess and address muscular and skeletal problems as a result of overuse, injury, poor posture, and general compensation patterns. Sessions consist of postural assessment, muscle testing, and various massage techniques designed to address specific concerns (i.e. scoliosis, TMJ, frozen shoulder). Treatment is often coordinated with other medical professionals including chiropractors, orthopedists and acupuncturists. This is not a relaxation massage and may or may not be a full body massage depending on the type of treatment needed.
