Holistic Pain Relief Through Manual Therapies


Myofascial release is a therapeutic technique that consistently provides safe, gentle, and effective treatment for fascial restrictions resulting from imbalances due to trauma, inflammatory responses, surgical procedures, releases muscle tension and poor posture. Fascia is uninterrupted connective tissue from head to toe. It is a highly complex biological dense fabric that holds us together. It is all encompassing, covering muscle fibers, bones, nerves, blood vessels and cells. When fascia is tight or strained, it can feel like tremendous pressure pulling or squeezing around any given body system, immediately causing pain, discomfort and dysfunction. Applying a sustained, gentle pressure will resolve painful restrictions. MFR treats the entire mind and body system and through treatment you will feel your entire body release tension and be more comfortable. To attain the best results we may use instrument assist techniques where appropriate such as static or dynamic cupping, IASTM, foam roller, percussion, passive or active assisted muscle stretching, or therapeutic yoga balls.


Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a highly specialized bodywork technique designed to increase the movement of lymph and interstitial fluid. During treatment, a gentle massage technique is used to encourage the movement of lymphatic fluid in specific areas of the body. When skillfully applied, this therapeutic form of soft-tissue mobilization dramatically enhances lymph drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network.

By doing this, your therapist is able to reduce swelling and discomfort, improve circulation, immune function and help prevent disease. MLD effectively reduces traumatic and post-surgical edema, and can provide symptomatic relief of migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, stress, fatigue, and more. MLD also induces detoxification, improves appearance of elasticity and hydration of skin, has an analgesic effect to aid pain reduction and promotes general relaxation.

Although MLD is very beneficial and safe for most people, some conditions may require us to take precautions or consult with your physician before performing the treatment.

We are deeply passionate and dedicated to providing you premiere manual therapy services that maximize pain relief and optimize your health and wellness.
