Connections: TRISH Massage
“Happiness lies, first of all, in health.” – George William Curtis
With everything going on in the world today, it’s important we take time to care for ourselves. What better way than to get a massage?
TRISH Massage offers massage therapy and myofascial release. Massage is fairly commonplace these days and therefore needs no further explanation other than the types of massage being offered and the health benefits of such. Myofascial release, on the other hand, requires a deeper understanding.
Types and Benefits of Massage:
People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons – to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellness.
TRISH massage offers Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, hydrotherapy, neuromuscular therapy and positional release massage.
Here’s a brief description of each:
- Swedish – light to medium pressure with long flowing strokes
- Deep tissue – firm pressure with focus on specific muscles
- Trigger point – direct firm pressure to alleviate knots and hypersensitive areas
- Hydrotherapy – hot and cold application
- Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) – repetitive light strokes to calm nerve endings allowing for deeper work
- Positional release – repositioning specific muscles to alleviate spasms
The goal at TRISH Massage is to provide each individual with a warm and welcome opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and restore the physical body and emotional soul through therapeutic massage and myofascial release.
So, what is myofascial release?
Myofascial release is a series of gentle static holds to relieve restricted fascia.
What is fascia and why is it restricted?
Fascia is like a sweater as its yarn interweaves and interprets the signals throughout your muscles, bones, nerves, arteries, veins, spinal cord and internal organs. It should be relaxed and wavy, stretching without restriction. However, when we experience any physical trauma, including stress or inflammation, our fascia gets tights and creates tension in our bodies. When left untreated, it restricts our mobility, flexibility, and stability. It can even cause pain.
The combination of massage and myofascial release goes hand-in-hand and benefit to you is you can do both with one therapist!
