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.

In addition to slower, fewer pressure movements and pre-determination of fascia, you can expect several other features within your myofascial massage appointment. The oils and creams used in an average massage therapy appointment won’t make an appearance during a myofascial massage because of the direct contact that’s necessary to feel where the fascia is most inflamed. Myofascial massages can last between 30 to 90 minutes. To get more details on your next appointment, call Self Endearment of Westminster today.
