JFB Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and highly effective manual technique that involves gently applying sustained pressure to alleviate pain and restore normal motion by addressing restrictions in the Myofascial connective tissue. The key aspect of this technique is the importance of time, which relates to the flow of the tissue and a phenomenon called piezoelectricity. By gradually applying low-intensity pressure, we enable the collagenous fascia to elongate and adapt. 

Conditions such as trauma, inflammation, and surgical procedures can result in Myofascial restrictions that exert considerable tensile pressures of around 2,000 pounds per square inch on structures sensitive to pain. Interestingly, these restrictions often go unnoticed in standard diagnostic tests, including x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, and electromyography. 

By employing Myofascial Release, we approach each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions involve hands-on treatments where our skilled therapists utilize a variety of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We strive to empower patients by educating them on proper body mechanics, self-treatment strategies, enhancing strength, promoting flexibility, and cultivating awareness of posture and movement.

Body Cupping

Cupping is an ancient therapeutic practice that originates from both traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern medicine, with a history spanning thousands of years. During cupping, a suction effect is created, drawing fluid into the targeted area. This gentle force expands and ruptures small blood vessels called capillaries beneath the skin. Remarkably, the body perceives this cupping treatment as a type of injury, triggering an increased blood flow to the area to facilitate the natural healing process. It is worth noting that some individuals speculate that cupping may have pore-clearing properties and the ability to release toxins 

Hot Stone Massage

The practice of hot stone therapy has its roots in ancient Chinese traditions that date back over 2,000 years. During that time, heated stones were employed to enhance the functioning of internal organs. Hot stone therapy is a specialized massage technique that involves the application of smooth, flat basalt stones that have been heated. These stones are strategically placed along the spine, in the hands, on the legs, and between the toes. Basalt stones, often sourced from river beds, are preferred due to their high iron content, which enables them to retain heat. Additionally, cold marble stones may be used in the treatment to assist with detoxification and the body's healing process.

The process of a hot stone massage typically commences with a traditional Swedish massage to prepare the muscles. The therapist then positions the warm stones on specific acupressure points of the body. The heat from the stones helps to relax the muscles, facilitating the application of deeper pressure during the massage. With the use of massage oil and a variety of strokes and techniques, the therapist will massage the neck, back, arms, and legs, incorporating both stone-assisted and non-stone-assisted movements.

Hot stone massage offers several benefits, including the relaxation of tense muscles, relief from pain, alleviation of depression, improved circulation, and promotion of better sleep.
