No pain no gain is my view here, by applying deep pressure to the muscle and fascial tissue a therapist can assist the body in releasing tension and strain. By tricking the proprioceptors in the tissue in this way it allows them to relax and lengthen. Which also creates a nervous system response that causes the body to bring blood, oxygen, and other nutrients to the areas of the body being worked on. In addition, a build-up of toxins in the tissues is flushed from the body creating a healthier happier musculoskeletal system.
Deep tissue massage therapy helps with muscular aches and pains, tension headaches, low back pain, knee pain, shoulders (rotator cuff injuries), carpal tunnel, syndrome sports acquired injuries, TMJ, and much more.
Cranial sacral is fabulous for exhaustion, is a subtle therapy that balances disturbances in the cranial-sacral rhythm within the body. It increases mental clarity, focus, and energy levels. Cranial Sacral Therapy is especially helpful in infants and the elderly. However, people of all ages can benefit from this type of treatment and can be incorporated into other techniques.
