The practitioner works off a physician's prescription to address specific injuries, pathologies and rehabilitation. A variety of techniques may be used during the treatment, but focus is on the specific areas of the body related to the medical diagnosis; it is an adjunct to medical treatment.
Trigger Point Therapy
Concentrated finger pressure to trigger points (painful irritated areas of muscle) to break the cycles of spasm and pain. The effects are lasting and profoundly transformative. Proper breathing through the pain will often facilitate the release and return the muscle fiber back to its' normal state.
The use of sustained pressure into fascial (connective tissue) restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. The fascia is the most superficial layer of tissue and when it adheres to the deeper layer of muscle beneath it, pain syndromes can often result. Little to no use of oil is common during this technique.
