Specialty Massage Therapies

Craniosacral Treatment (CST) - is a gentle way of working with your body, using a light therapeutic touch to encourage the release of symptoms caused by physical, psychological and emotional stress. This is a therapy which enhances the body's own healing abilities. A light touch is used to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.

 

Myofascial Release Therapy -  is a safe and very effective hands on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue. This helps in relieving restrictions in the connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Trigger Point Therapy -  a trigger point is a sensitive area in the muscle or connective tissue that becomes painful when compressed. The therapy consists of concentrated pressure on the area of muscle spasm. Pressure is applied with the fingers or elbow in 10 - 30 second intervals to effectively alleviate the muscle spasm.
