I offer a specialized approach of Myofascial Release
This approach overlaps Cranial Sacral Therapy techniques with Myofascial Release.
Myofascial release (MFR) is a manual therapy that uses light, sustained pressure and gentle holds in order to relieve tension in the connective-tissue (fascia).
Cranial sacral therapy (CRT) is a method that feels for movement of the fluids in the spine and cranium, which helps release tension in the central nervous system.
I don't advertise other services because I want to expose people to MFR—it's a lot different than other therapies. After clients have made progress through consecutive MFR treatments, I'm happy to integrate other modalities, if requested.
Treatments help with relaxation, embodiment, trauma, and discomfort.
Myofascial Release for relaxation and embodiment
Treatments calm the nervous system, and create a feeling of spaciousness in the joints and tissues, which improves self-awareness.
Myofascial Release compliments other somatic exercises such as, breathwork, yoga, and meditation.
Myofascial Release for trauma
Trauma and stress leave physiological imprints (muscle memory).
MFR helps purge what the body is storing; the related feelings, or tension.
Myofascial release complements psychotherapy, EMDR and biofeedback therapy.
Myofascial Release for pain and discomfort
Myofascial release compliments physical therapy, chiropractic and massage.
Treatable symptoms include, but aren't limited to: whiplash, lower back pain, fibromyalgia . . .
What to expect during treatment
I use sustained compression, decompression, and long holds, unlike massage which uses steady movements.
My techniques are gentle—not aggressive deep tissue techniques.
MFR has a cumulative effect and progress is made through successive treatments.
Myofascial Release is preformed on bare skin. Drape with a sheet, or wear: underwear, bra, swimsuit, shorts, tank top.
