Soft Tissue Mobilization (instrument)
This remarkable procedure allows me to detect and treat areas of "scar tissue" or adhesions in muscles, tendons and ligaments that can reduce our range of motion and cause pain.
In the healing process, our body attempts to repair those areas by creating "scar tissue," much like the scar that forms on the skin when you have scraped or banged your knee.
In time, we can have a build up of this fibrous scar tissue, particularly in the muscles, tendons and ligaments that get a lot of use. This can lead to pain and dysfunction because this replacement tissue lacks the strength and flexibility of healthy tissue (in some areas it may even mat down and entrap a nerve). My soft tissue technigues will help remove these issues.
Understanding your fascia and how Cupping can help you heal.
What does it do?
Re-educates neuromuscular system, Reduce pain, Enhance performance,
Prevent injury, Reduce bruising, Promote improved circulation and healing,
Relax overused/tired muscles, Support muscles, Manage edema, Assist
with lymphatic drainage.
Cupping Therapy originates in the science of holistic healing, based on the belief that the body’s fascia is responsible for restriction of movements and it allows toxin and adhesions to build up in the body as well as being in control of other elements, such as circulation of the blood and body temperature. As a result of this, when fascia is to restrictive it can impaire the muscles and movement and cause other parts of the body to be effected, thus putting their function at risk. The principle of Gua sha & Cupping Therapy is to treat the Fascia and that will unrestrict the muscles to help the body heal itself naturally.
