Myofascial release usually requires deeper tissue work than traditional massage to release the restriction in the fascia.
If you’re like many people, you may not realize that massage therapy can provide benefits that extend well beyond stress relief and relaxation. At Bellesmere Massage Therapy in Scarborough, Ontario, not only do we provide traditional massages, but we also provide a number of advanced massage treatments to help you overcome certain health conditions. Some of these treatments are as follows:
- Visceral Therapy – The purpose of visceral therapy is to release and balance the thoracic, pelvic, and abdominal regions. This form of massage therapy can help with acid reflux, urinary tract infections, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s and colitis, bladder incontinence, gynecological and abdominal surgeries and a variety of other conditions.
- Structural Integration – This type of massage therapy is designed to release fascial or connective tissue restrictions and improve and restore proper posture and mobility. Structural Integration focuses on why the body is not moving properly and how that function can be restored.
- Cranial therapy – This therapy involves gentle manipulation of the bones and tissues of the central nervous system (bones and tissues of the skull and spinal column). Cranial therapy is especially helpful for whiplash, concussions and spinal injuries.
As it is with beginning any therapy, prior to your advanced massage treatments, your current condition and past medical history are carefully examined by your therapist. At Bellesmere Massage Therapy, all of our registered massage therapists are properly prepared and trained to assess and develop an individualized treatment plan for you.
