Therapeutic massage, a slow calm and effective approach

We all have our own ideas about what makes a great therapeutic massage. Many people expect the painful pummelling and pressing on knots and tight muscles, whilst others prefer a relaxing gentle rhythmic massage. Whatever we expect to feel during the massage we all want to feel positive results from the treatment.

A massage technique called myofascial release absolutley provides results, and it combines both expectations of massage treatment. The massage technique is slow and calming whilst also being deep and intense, you can actually feel your tissues releasing the tightness and tension. For me this is a perfect combination.

Myofascial release techniques focus on relaxing deep tissue within the body providing lasting and effective relief.  Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure which works to free restrictions and can relieve pain and restore motion.  Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to help release them.  Myofascial release is a very effective treatment that can significantly improve many soft tissue and orthopedic conditions.

During a massage treatment a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques can be used, and they can be combined with other massage techniques to provide a treatment tailored for each individual.  A massage does not have to be vigorous to work wonders on your aches and pains.  Working with your body to ease away tightness and restrictions can feel great and really benefit your wellbeing.
