Myofascial Massage is a satisfying and relaxing therapeutic massage which aims to balance and realign the fascial network in the body. It focuses on relieving tension in localised areas and reconnecting them to the whole body. During massage, advanced bodywork methods such as neuromuscular technique (NMT) and muscle energy technique (MET) are used to free-up adhered connective tissue, reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
You can expect a range of hands-on techniques from slow, deep and light stretching strokes, to constant pressure are used by the therapist to lengthen and realign the body’s connective tissue. During the treatment you may be asked to focus on your breathing or to move a part of your body.
The benefits of Myofascial Massage include a boost to the immune system, improved circulation, a reduction in pain and tension, an improvement in joint mobility and stability, improved breathing, improved sleep and a sense of well-being.
