TREATMENTS

Deep Tissue/Sports Massage

When stretching and foam rolling is not enough, it is possible to release muscle knots and soft tissue adhesions through the use of deep tissue sports massage.  This consists of firm and concentrated pressure on the involved fibers; it is essential for a balanced training regiment as it promotes flexibility, reduces physical fatigue, improves endurance, and prevents from injuries.

Instrument Assisted Tissue Mobilization

An Eastern Medicine technique used to break down muscular tension, scar tissue, fascia restrictions, and adhesions.  Utilizing specially designed stainless steel instruments, the instrument glides over the treatment area to detect and effectively treat soft tissue fibrosis, scars, chronic restriction, and tightness.

Myofascial Cupping
This ancient Chinese and Persian technique has recently risen to celebrity status. Fascial Cupping helps to decrease pain, break up scar tissue, improve circulation, bring anti-inflammatory properties to the area, and most importantly, stretch the fascial chains. Using fascial cupping will lengthen connective tissue which then improves your range of motion.
Dry Needling
The goal of dry needling is to release muscle knots, trigger points, and relieve pain. This is one the most effective and quickest ways to increase muscle length and reduce tension. Research indicates that this method helps reduce muscle tension and normalizes dysfunction of the motor endplates: the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to the muscle.
