Fascial Therapy

Fascial therapy is breaking down the fascial adhesions and scar tissue. Fascial therapy manipulates the fascia surrounding the muscle tissue, to create a postural balance in the body. It helps to decrease muscle tension, increase circulation and nerve conduction. Superficial fascial techniques and deep frictioning techniques are used. A little painful but we will always work within your level of comfort.  Fascial therapy techniques are included in therapeutic massage since most of us have fascial adhesions and scar tissue in our body.
