Not many feelings can beat those you feel just after a massage. A good quality massage leaves you feeling warm and relaxed, while at the same time rejuvenated and full of life. You may even experience...
I specialize in a type of massage called myofascial release... but what the heck is it? Does it hurt? How is it different from Swedish massage?
Myofascial release isn't too different from the massages you might be used to from spas or massage clinics. It still uses oil and flowing strokes, and it still feels good. The big differences are the slower speed and different angle of approach. If Swedish feels like hands gliding through your muscles, myofascial release is like having your body slowly ironed out (or, as a Canadian colleague recently suggested, "like a zamboni"). Imagine a firm hand traveling slowly down your back, decompressing the spine and soothing the muscles as it goes.
Myofascial release can also involve stillness. If you have low back pain, I might compress the muscles over your hips, angling my pressure down toward your feet. I'll hang out there until the muscles start to soften and feel like they're "melting." That's the "release" in myofascial release. In other words, it's a way of working WITH the body and its painful areas, without trying to force a change. There's no painful digging or pinpoint pressure.
Let me know if you have any questions! While my massage will feel a little different, you might find that this style is just what your body needs to erase long-standing tension and pain. If you'd like to see my current openings and schedule right online, goto handsthathealnj.com Thanks!
