Bodywork

Through my integrated myofascial release practice I can holistically treat the body from fascial integration and assessment, use various bodywork techniques (as listed below) and plan rehabilitation for your body.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR)-

Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly skin on skin without oils, creams or tools. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.

The MFR therapist not only takes into consideration what they see in the patient’s postural assessment but works directly with what they feel and sense from palpating and treating the body. Rehabilitation exercises can then be given to maintain the treatment.

This treatment releases restrictions within the facial network (connective tissue), enabling stuck, hardened and dehydrated areas to become pliable, soft, mobile and hydrated.

Myofascial Release can increase energy, breathing capacity, restore muscle function and postural alignment, relieve physical and emotional strain, it can help balance the body and promote self-healing and relaxation by improving the circulation and nervous system transmission.

This manual therapy focuses on soft tissue dysfunction, pain, tension and holding patterns. It involves gentle sustained pressure to allow the fascia to elongate and restore to a healthy position.

* One of the key characteristics of myofascial release technique is applying sustained pressure with no sliding. Please make sure you do not apply too much moisturiser or creams onto your body prior to treatment.

Please note-with this technique the applications are 3-5 minutes long so appointments work best over 1 hour.

MFR sessions can be booked for: 60min, 90min, 2 hours, 3 hours

SWEDISH/HOLISTIC MASSAGE:

The focus is general using long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibrations and tapping.

DEEP TISSUE:

The focus is more targeted, working on specific areas of concern or pain. A form of massage that focuses on releasing the deeper myofascial restrictions of the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body. Techniques are used to work below the superficial connective tissue with the intent of breaking up old structural patterns and allowing the free flow of nutrients and oxygen to the blood.

TRIGGER POINT & NEURO-MUSCULAR TECHNIQUE (NMT)

The muscle tissue can feel denser than normal and pain or discomfort on that area may occur-often they may refer pain to another area. Referred pain is a defining symptom of a myofascial trigger-point.

Palpation is used to find trigger points. Once an area has been found, pressure is applied for a certain amount of time, within the clients pain tolerance (please note-with this technique you may need more than 1 hour).
