ESALEN DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
is a type of massage therapy that incorporates many other massage styles and techniques, and is characterized by its long, integrating strokes. Used to focus on deeper muscles, tendons, and connective tissues. The therapist pays close attention to the client, noting any subtle cues which are indicative of pain in order to focus on the problem areas and adjust the pressure to the client's level of comfort.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain in an area by targeting the origin, or specific point, which the pain is referring from. Pain is subdued through cycles of isolated pressure and release on these specific points on the body. The massage therapist works with the client to identify the exact location and intensity of the pain and discomfort.
INSTRUMENT ASSISTED SOFT TISSUE MANIPULATION
Uses ergonomically designed instruments to detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas of chronic pain, inflammation, or degeneration.
Is an alternative form of soft tissue therapy used to treat skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This is achieved through relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation and stretching out the muscles. Myofascial techniques can be either passive, where the patient remains completely relaxed, or, active, where the patient provides resistance as necessary with direction from the massage therapist.
