Therapy developed by John Upledger, D.O., this technique involves a light touch modality that uses a gentle soft-tissue technique to release restrictions in the membranes around the brain and spinal cord, enhancing central nervous system performance and allowing the body to self correct.
This bodywork focuses on five basic principles--biomechanics, ischemia, trigger points, postural distortion, and nerve entrapment and compression--that are important factors in the body's physical homeostasis. This therapy is used to treat soft-tissue pain throughout most of the body.
Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictioMedians to eliminate pain and restore range of motion. This approach aides in the relief of cervical pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological dysfunction, restriction of motion, chronic pain, and headaches.
