Myofascial Release

With typical massage therapy, practitioners will usually use high amounts of pressure and faster, shorter strokes along the muscle to expel the toxins within the muscles. Myofascial massages uses the same path of motion but usually involves less pressure and shorter paths of motion performed much slower as well. Typically, massage therapists will commence therapy immediately, while Myofascial therapists will measure the starting points of flexibility and range of motion to determine what areas need the most help.

CranioSacral Therapy

Created in 1970, CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle technique that releases compression in the head, spinal column and sacrum. Targets stress and pain issues related to soft tissue and fluid around the bones. It is an effective technique for Westminster residents who suffer from daily migraines, fibromyalgia, patients with central nervous disorders and those who have immune disorders as well. It has also been known to treat issues such as chronic fatigue, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and brain and spinal cord injuries.

Lymphatic Drainage

Massage therapy in certain areas can carry loads of benefits regardless of the amount of pressure that is applied. That is especially true with the lymphatic system. A lymphatic massage applies light pressure to the lymph nodes to encourage the flow and movement of lymphatic fluid and ultimately reduce the swelling. Lymph nodes specifically respond best to gentle rotating movements and play a key part in resisting sickness and healing. If you suspect your lymph nodes are swollen or are in need of stimulation.
