I also help bodywork professionals to connect and develop technique that is authentically theirs.
Deep Tissue/Myofascial Release
The pimary deep tissue technique used is Myofasical Release therapy, which involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion that occur after after injuries, chronic contraction of the muscles due to stress or repetitive contractions. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a gentle pressure applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate. It is often during this technique that trigger points are located. Connective tissue includes tendons, ligaments, cartilage, fascia, periosteum, joint capsules and the surface linings of the organs and vessels in the body.
Shiatsu is profound because it is based on Oriental theory, which incorporates every aspect of the individual. Shiatsu centers on restoring balance in the meridians and organs in order to promote self-healing. With the client reclining, the practitioner applies pressure with the finger, thumb, palm, elbow, or knee to specific zones on the skin located along the energy meridians. The treatment brings about a sense of relaxation while stimulating blood and lymphatic flow. The benefits of this treatment may include increased mobility, pain relief and a strengthening of the body’s resistance to disease and disorder. The relaxed state of the giver actually makes it more effective and more comfortable for the receiver.
Swedish Massage is an incredible technique or group of techniques because it is so versatile. Universally employed to affect mainly the superficial lymphatics, I do a very deep fast and slow Swedish technique from which I have gotten incredible feedback. The strokes are soothingly connective to all parts of your body. You will feel as though you have been put back together again. I am currently employing hand movements from Jeet Kune Do, my current movement and energy interest for the shoulder region and can not believe the results. Amazing!
Passive and Active Stretching/Rotational Release
I have developed my own version of rotational release that will be demonstrated in a forthcoming video. Passive and Active Stretching is profoundly understated, but I use it with my clients to relieve joint pain, unlock muscle stiffness, and reduce inflammation.
Referred Pain (the only positive pain)
You are encouraged during or after your massage to communicate when you experience relief, as well as sensations, such as tingling or temperature change, at the area of concern or in another area. For example, it is common to feel tingling in the opposite leg that is being massaged, and in the lower arm while massaging the shoulder. Referred pain is the process of restoring connection, and that is very positive, because correcting habitual patterns and restoring natural paths of circulation that once were blocked is key to pain relief.
