Myofascial Release is a form of bodywork that is manipulative in nature and seeks to re-balance the body. It involves releasing and unwinding the fascia also known as the connective tissue that surrounds each muscle and interconnects all the other internal parts of the body. This tissue layer, which connects every muscle, tendon, ligament, bone, and organ in our bodies, can store memories of physical trauma. Releasing these restrictions allows us to discharge recurring emotional as well as physical pain. Sessions can include craniosacral work, stretching techniques, and deep touch.

Deep Tissue Massage applies deep pressure onto specific trouble points by pushing into your knotted muscle, and the massage can leave you feeling sore. It's not just more pressure all over your body, however, it's very specific, methodical treatment. Deep tissue is a very specific massage treatment in which the therapist uses knuckles and elbows to sink into the deeper muscle and tissue layers, releasing tension and restrictions. It is definitely not for everyone. However, there are millions of people out there that would never have their treatment any other way. This modality can be helpful to the following people: athletes who are considerably harder on their bodies than the average person, people who are undergoing physical therapy to aid in the breakdown process of scar tissue or anyone who has very dense tissue and thus responds better to the work. It is very important to ALWAYS speak up and let your therapist know if you need the pressure to be corrected. Most everyone needs more pressure in some areas and less in others. This occurs because muscle tissue that contains Trigger Points is more sensitive to pressure and can be tender to the touch. This is not the kind of massage to ask for if you expect to feel relaxed during the therapy, and afterward, you might feel sore for a couple of days. Best for Treating stiff, painful trouble spots like the shoulder and neck

Neuromuscular Therapy is a subset of trigger point massage. A highly trained therapist applies pressure to the areas where you have muscle spasms, that are painful to the touch. Neuromuscular therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically oriented form of massage addresses trigger points, tender muscle points, circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries. Neuromuscular therapy will feel painful at first, but it should relax the muscle and help it get more oxygen and blood flow. Best for Treating injuries and issues like poor circulation or posture problems, lower back pain.
