nsb:: a combination of gentle, facial release, neurological "reprogramming" and breathwork that eliminates pain and tension, restores postural integrity and increases sensory perception, range of motion and efficiency of movement.
physical patterns of imbalance can result from poor body mechanics, overuse of muscles, injury or disease. these patterns form when neurological impulses of contraction repeatedly travel over pathways from the brain to other parts of the body through the spinal chord. over time, they become habitual and out of control and we experience stiffness, tension and pain.
benefits of nsb are increased range of motion, sensory perception and motor control and enhancing performance for athletes. nsb is also effective in treating both acute injuries and chronic conditions including strained muscles, upper/lower back and disc problems, frozen shoulder, joint injuries, fibromyalgia, migraines, tmj and chronic fatigue syndrome.
nsb enhances poise, balance and sense of well-being and it feels great!
trigger point:: uses pain-relief techniques to alleviate muscle spasms and cramping. the therapist locates and deactivates "trigger point," which are often tender areas where muscles have been damaged or acquired a re-occurring spasm or "kink" that worsens painfully when aggravated. the major goal is to reduce spasm inducing new blood flow into the affected area. the spasms are partly maintained by nervous system feedback ( pain-spasm-pain) cycle.
myofascial release:: this is a form of massage therapy that involves stretching and manipulating connective tissue, or fascia, of the body. this is done through mild sustained pressure from the therapist's hands to the fascia. this works to reduce tension and soften the tissue. fascia is unique, in that it covers and connects all of the body's muscles and bones and can store memories of physical trauma. because of this relationship with the body, trauma, inflammation, scarring and repetitive stress can cause tightening of the fascia.
deep tissue massage:: a massage technique that focuses on deeper layers of muscle tissue. it aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber's of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
therapeutic massage:: a combination of swedish and deep-tissue, myofascial, trigger point techniques massage designed to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit.
