Myofascial Release Massage
'Myo-' refers to muscle and 'fascia' is a type of web-like fibrous connective tissue found beneath the skin which serves as a kind of infrastructure for many of the smaller aspects of our bodies, such as blood vessels and nerves. 'Myofascial Release' is the application of slow, sustained pressure and movement on fascia in the body. It helps to loosen restrictions, adhesions, and impingements thereby bringing relief to headaches, neck pain, low-back pain, fibromyalgia, and improving range of motion.

Positioning, pillows, and cushions are used to enhance support, decrease pressure and increase relaxation for both body and mind.
Reflexology uses manual techniques to the feet, scalp or hands; manipulation corresponds to specific areas of the feet and stimulates neural pathways while supporting optional functioning of the body as a whole.
