With myofascial release, gentle, sustained pressure is applied to loosen and lengthen the constricting fascia. During this time, the massage therapist may work on breaking down adhesions between the tissues. It may take several minutes for each specific area to be worked on for the tissues to be softened which can reduce pain and restore range of motion.
Pregnancy and post – natal
Pregnancy should be a joy – a process of transformation and preparation! To keep yourself and baby in optimum health, a regular specialized pregnancy massage will make sure you have a pain-free healthy pregnancy and a great birth! The massage is moderated week to week according to the developments of your body as it moves through the 40 weeks gestation.
IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization):
IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. It is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or degeneration. There are also enough evidence that suggest the clinical benefits of IASTM in improvement in range of motion, fibroblast proliferation, increased vascular response and reduction in scar tissues.
It creates a vacuum to help loosen connective tissue and promote healing by increasing blood and lymph flow to the areas. The suction and negative pressure can also loosen muscle, decrease tension and sedate the nervous system.
