Myofascial Release bodywork is a gentle, hands-on form of stretching that evaluates and treats the fascial connective tissue system, which can become restricted due to overuse, inactivity, trauma, or infection, often resulting in pain and muscle tension. The function of fascia is varied, but it generally acts as a shock absorber. It creates tissue spaces and plays an important role in support, protection, separation, cellular respiration, elimination, metabolism, fluid and, lymphatic flow. It is a major area of inflammatory processes and will often change prior to chronic tissue congestion. Dysfunction in these tissues can have far-reaching effects.
The therapist applies gentle pressure into the direction of the restriction by following the motion of the tissue, barrier after barrier, with sustained pressure that supports the release. This process relieves restrictions throughout the body, promoting strength, flexibility, full range of motion, aligned posture, and fluid movement.

Craniosacral Therapy is one of the gentler yet powerful therapies. William Sutherland, an osteopathic practitioner in the early 1900's, discovered that gentle manipulations and adjustments at the sutures of the cranium, sacrum, and tailbone released tension from the membranes of the entire system, allowing the body to self-correct. This modality uses gentle, fluid movements of the bones and tissues of the head, thorax, and hips to enhance the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Imbalances are corrected in the central nervous system between the cranium and the sacrum, resetting the body's natural healing potential. Craniosacral work can be done with the client clothed or unclothed.
The benefits of treatment include improvement of nervous system function, reduction of stress, deep muscular relaxation, support of the immune system, and overall enhancement of health. A greater sense of calm, clarity, and connectedness are often experienced after a craniosacral session. Call our spa for availability and details to book your service.
Neuromuscular Therapy aims to correct imbalances between the nervous system and musculoskeletal systems through highly irritated trigger points. By applying specific and direct point pressure to the body's fascia (connective tissue) NMT helps release acute or chronically contracted muscles and tendons and return them to a relaxed state.
NMT techniques include the application of static pressure to the trigger points of the body. This pressure helps manipulate the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fascia) in order to restore balance to the central nervous system. Call our spa for availability and details to book your service.
