Soft Tissue Mobilization

We specialize in:

  • Myofascial Release (MFR)

  • Active Release Technique (ART)

  • Muscle Energy Technique (MET)

  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) including Graston.


Myofascial Decompression/Cupping

Cupping and MFD use negative pressure forces with suction cups to lift the tissues. This creates space within the tissue layers for improved gliding and mobility. Decompression helps release tight tissues, improve the pain associated with trigger points, improve blood flow and nutrient exchange and create a change to the neuromuscular system which allows for temporary pain relief.

Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping can decrease pain, decrease swelling and inflammation, and offer tissue support and proprioception in order to delay fatigue and normalize movement. Taping can be a great addition when combined with other techniques including neuromuscular re-education, restorative exercises and functional movements.
