In addition, it can benefits individuals whom wish to manage chronic pain related to connective tissue restrictions. A variety of modalities may be used to address your specific concerns, such as Myofascial therapy along with Trigger point therapy. All massage has been proven to be most effective in reducing the risk of future injury for those who wish to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Note: Fascia is the connective tissue that encases our muscles, bones, nerves, and organs. Unfortunately, it can become restricted resulting in the impingement of nerve endings and the reduction of blood supply; slowing down the bodies natural healing process. Restrictions can be caused by residual muscle tension, a recent surgery, or chronic overloading of the muscle tissue.
At Azure Therapeutic Massage take the stance that fascia tension can be brought on by mental factors such as internal conflict or stress. With that said, you can expect a calm and relaxing environment aimed to activate the parasympathetic nervous system.
