Investing in massage is an investment in your health.
This customized hands-on session, focuses on softening areas of tightness or discomfort in the body. Together we establish where you are at in your healing journey, and what your goals are for the session. Using Myofascial Release Techniques (MFR), the John F. Barnes approach, and other massage modalities, the therapist works with you to soften areas of restricted movement and/or pain. MFR helps to release restricted fascia, creating space in the tissue, activating the ground substance- the fluid part of the fascial system; so, that, the body can realign on a cellular level, hydrate the starving cells and tissue and relieve the crushing tensile pressure. (Fascia- serves as a protective, binding layer that individually wraps organs, muscles, blood vessels, arteries and nerves, holding everything in place. Fascia exists as one continuous interconnected tissue from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet 1. "The primary communication system in the body is fascia. It's like fiber optics." -John F. Barnes. As with any communication system, how well the transmission lines work is a key component to the system's health 2.)
Please note* Results are unique to each person. The therapist will not "fix you". You are not broken. She will support you, listen to you, assist you within her scope of practice as a massage therapist through therapeutic touch techniques and resources, and walk with you through your personal healing process. Authentic healing comes from within.
