A problem-focused treatment session that targets specific acute/chronic issues, such as repetitive stress injuries, headaches, low back pain, strains/sprains, neck pain, and more.
These are very interactive session in which the client actively participates by providing feedback as the therapist asks questions and explores the tissues in order to identify the muscles involved and then address problem areas in a way that is relaxing and efficient.
Modalities can include myofascial release, neuromuscular and connective tissue therapy, trigger point therapy, hydrotherapy, and more. Lubricant used is typically little to none. The pace of the strokes is generally quite slow and deliberate.
Treatment goals include releasing chronic muscle tension and adhesions, eliminating pain, reducing imbalances, increasing physical & athletic performance, and prevention of injuries.
