Myofascial release focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues — the tough membranes that wrap, connect and support the muscles. Focused manual pressure and stretching used in myofascial release therapy loosens up restricted movement and so reduces pain.
Hot Stone Massage
This specialist massage uses smooth, flat, heated basalt stones that are positioned along your spine, in the palms of your hands, along your legs and between the toes. Basalt stones have a rich iron content that retains heat. Cold marble stones are often also used. The combination of hot and cold stones encourages your body to detox and heal by increasing your lymphatic flow and encouraging your body to remove waste products.
