Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy is a technique in which water treated stones are applied to the body during massage and/or bodywork session. The warmth of the stones are used to promote circulation and new blood supply to the soft tissue.
Precision Neuromuscular Therapy (PNMT)
Precision Neuromuscular Therapy is an advanced method of soft tissue* therapy for the relief of muscular discomfort, pain and limited range of motion. This highly evolved treatment approach utilizes primarily hands on techniques. PNMT is practiced through methodical and precise palpation.
PNMT helps to reintroduce and reintegrate forgotten or lost body movements by applying alternating levels of concentrated pressure to the areas of muscle spasm or restriction. The pressure is applied perpendicularly in a very precise direction with finger tips and held as long as 10-30 seconds, depending on the response or release of the soft tissue. This technique should not be painful, in fact to be most effective this technique needs to be applied with a pressure that is comfortably accepted by your body. To ensure your comfort level during a PNMT session, communication between you and your therapist is essential.
Myofascial Release Technique
While massage can be affective in relieving tension, correctly releasing and realigning the fascia can help to achieve true lasting results and ultimately maximize the effectiveness of your massage therapy session.
