If you haven’t gotten results, or you’ve even gotten worse from deep tissue massage treatments and neuromuscular therapy, try working with myofascial techniques. Tony is our expert for classic Myofascial Release after the famous Robert Ward coined the phrase in the late 1960’s. Balance Orlando therapists also on staff that are trained are Sondra and Flower and especially therapists Mimi and Sarah have studied with Lu (owner) and other experts on mobilization techniques that are more active.
Here is our therapist Tony talking a little about his techniques and about Myofascial Release:
For new clients at Balance Orlando, we have our “Consultation & Tryout” for only $45 where you choose an experienced therapist for the first time with an introductory price.
Here are a few symptoms to look out for:
If your fascia is inflamed, tight or uneven, you’ll know it. You’ll feel it. Ask yourself if you are experiencing these symptoms:
S – sensitivity: Tender areas are the most easily recognizable symptom.
T – tissue texture change: Tissue texture changes may include edema, fibrosis, atrophy, rigidity, or hypertonicity of musculature.
A – asymmetry: There may be asymmetry in the bones, muscles, or joints.
R – restriction: There may be a “restrictive barrier” related to the musculoskeletal structure in question. The “anatomic barrier” describes how far the arm can be pushed or pulled by an outside force before the arm becomes physically injured.
Myofascial massage techniques are aimed at resolving problems, not just managing them constantly. What delights us the most is receiving referrals from clients who said “I only had to get one treatment and I felt wonderful!”
Call us 407-704-8867 to schedule with one of our many therapists who utilize myofascial massage, and make sure to ask for Tony if you’re interested in the John F. Barnes system of Myofascial Release and myofascial holds and unwinding.
