Who Needs Massage Therapy?
EveryBODY needs Massage Therapy. People of all ages will benefit from massage. Believe it or not, even your pets love it. Massaging the body releases inflammation and toxins. It also moves Lymphatic Fluid. Some techniques are relaxing. All of the techniques release hormones that switches the body from the Sympathetic Nervous System into the Parasympathetic Nervous System. Jason’s favorite technique is Myofascial Release.
Connective Tissue, Fascia & Myofascial Release
Connective Tissue is found throughout the entire body. Connective Tissue is also called Fascia. For example, fascia is the white membrane you find on chicken. Another example of fascia is the sleeve of a shirt, if you pull on the sleeve it will move at other places of the shirt because the shirt is all connected, just like facia. A knot in the facia at the neck could cause a limp or pain in the foot because it’s all connected. Fascia goes in all position and and directions almost like a spiders web. A specific type of massage therapy called Myofascial Release is massaging, squeezing, and stretching the skin, fascia, and muscles to break down adhesions, scar tissue, or knots.
