Through unwinding holding patterns that may stem from repetitive actions, an old or new injury, or postural issues we can relieve pain and tension. Through the various techniques of deep tissue, myofacial release, trigger point/NMT, and thai movement together we help decrease pain while increasing range of motion and strength.
Deep Tissue Bodywork
Through a sensitive awareness of soft tissue touch, I work with you to soften superficial layers and gain access to layers beneath. There is no forcing through layers of soft tissue that are not ready to let go and that’s where my deep tissue therapy is different then what you may have experienced in the past.
Deep Tissue does not mean deep or painful pressure. Our body is built up in layers of soft tissue; muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia, lymph, veins, arteries, and organs. Therefore, the work I give is slow, direct, and broken down to gain access into these layers and works with and around them.
Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy
Have you ever found an area of super sensitivity, tenderness, or felt tissue that fatigued quicker then you remember?
Those are caused by trigger points that may or may not have painful satellite spots associated with them. Through direct pressure, awareness of the tissues density, and participation of your tissue contraction we can release trigger point pain and tissue tension while allowing fresh blood flow to help heal the areas from the inside.
Neuromuscular therapy helps improve postural distortion, nerve compression, biomechanical distortion, ischemia, and pain while supporting the integration of a variety of modalities.
Being that fascia connects everything, well, that means if it’s sticky and stuck it can start to pull on all the attachments it has, to everything. My work incorporates attention to the snags fascia can have on our muscles, ligaments and bones.
From our skin to our muscles, ligaments to bones, nerves and organs, When our fascia becomes tight, sticky, or stuck, it can react similarly to a snag in our t-shirt fabric. It starts to pull the fabric from every direction and contorts the way it lays.
The work is gentle but very effective and brings self awareness to you and your body.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
How do you use a foam roller? Is it comfortable or painful? Do you find it hard to connect to your breath? Do you become fatigued in other areas while trying to roll your pain and tension out?
Wouldn’t you rather shimmy and sink into the tender spots while being able to breath through the pain?
Throughout the years of working in restaurants, giving structural bodywork, keeping up with 3 dogs, snowboarding in the winter, and staying active in the summer I have come up with endless options to help release bound up soft tissue tilizing these tools and many more.
Keep your eyes peeled for my Foam Roller Workshops where you’ll go home with amazing knowledge and tools for releasing your own bound up tissue or come in for a session and leave with knowledge to control you’re own pain and tension.
