Release and Restore is our focused treatment work. Myofascial Release Techniques, myofascial cupping, Trigger Point Therapy, range-of-motion techniques, deep tissue massage, and heat and ice therapy will be applied, as needed, to address your specific concerns. These techniques can help your body heal properly from injuries, address chronic tension patterns, and restore range of motion.

These sessions emphasize communication, proper breathing, and home-care recommendations to achieve your goals. An ideal option for athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, musicians, artists, or anyone who relies on their body to perform or just get them through a busy day.

We also see many clients who suffer from migraines, tension headaches, TMJ issues, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, and other repetitive-use injuries. We find the synergy of these techniques often provides immediate relief, while the home-care recommendations and an ongoing treatment plan can help you avoid recurring pain.

90 minutes is recommended for multiple areas of focus or if you would like to combine this treatment work with a full-body massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage that targets the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, or connective tissue. A deep tissue massage is typically more intense than a relaxation massage and aims to release chronic muscle tension or adhesions (commonly referred to as “knots”).
Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as a relaxation massage, however, the pressure will generally be more intense and purposeful. The type of pressure used depends on the preferences of both client and therapist and also on the area of the body being addressed.

Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release works with the fascia (connective tissue) associated with muscle tissue (myo). It uses slow, sustained, gentle pressure to cause soft tissue to elongate and return to its original state, relieving pressure and freeing up restrictions. This is done through the use of fingers, hands, elbows, and forearms. Pressure may be applied through either light touch or deeper pressure, depending upon what myofascial restrictions are found.
Trigger Point Therapy
This type of therapy is also known as neuromuscular therapy and is characterized by alternating levels of pressure on areas of chronic muscle spasm. In order to relieve muscle spasms, focused pressure is applied in increments of ten to thirty seconds. Trigger point patterns can also be followed throughout the body based on pain that is referred to other areas from the point being treated.
Cupping Therapy

Also referred to as decompression therapy because it uses the opposite action of massage (or compression therapy), cupping utilizes suction or a pulling-apart action to release adhesions and tightness. Many people find the sensation of cupping extremely relaxing and relieving and it can be very effective for areas of chronic tension or denser muscle tissue. Cupping can also improve tissue health by increasing circulation to the area applied. We use both stationary and gliding techniques in our cupping therapy.

Breathing Techniques
The importance of healthy breathing will be emphasized throughout the session, focusing on breathing in for five seconds, preferably through the nose, and out for five seconds through the mouth. Massage techniques will be applied to match the rhythm of your breath, encouraging your body to settle into a deep state of parasympathetic relaxation and allowing your muscle and connective tissue to release.
Heat and Ice Therapy
After discussing during intake, your therapist may apply heat and ice therapy to areas of chronic tension or a recent injury. We use hot, moist towels and ice packs for alternate hot and cold application. This can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and encourage tissue healing and relaxation.
