These sessions use gentle holds on areas of tension in the body coupled with very slow stretching of the connective tissue (fascia) just below the skin.
This is achieved by gently sinking into the connective tissue layer and then stretching it in opposite directions over the area of tension.
It is a much more gentle form of bodywork than remedial massage- perfect for people with chronic pain, exhaustion and anxiety.
Fascia responds well to slow techniques as the lowest level of fascia moves to a gel form once it is heated with friction. Once the fascia begins to unwind, the emotion or injury trauma that tensed the body in the first place can also be released.
For this reason this technique works very well in reprogramming body patterns and beliefs. It is fantastic at removing chronically held patterns that are causing pain and tension in the body and helps to realigning your posture.
Great at emotional rebalancing and calming your mind.
In this session Rachael spends an hour gently releasing the muscles and fascia (connective tissue) around your neck, jaw and head. Often trigger point therapy is the most effective way to release muscles in this area.
Work inside the mouth (with gloves) is very effective at loosening a jaw that is continually held tightly or grinds teeth all night! Muscles around the head must also be freed to allow the jaw to function as freely as possible.
Perfect for anyone who suffers from migraines, headaches, the endless mind-chatter that stops you being able to concentrate effectively, jaw pain, TMJ and TMD disorders or a stiff neck.
Includes a postural assessment and treatment plan to treat chronic and painful conditions affecting your body and energy levels.
You will also be given exercises to do at home to extend the treatment and its effectiveness.
Rachael employs trigger point therapy in many of her sessions. Trigger points are very common and are often referred to as muscle knots.
Trigger Point Therapy involves applying pressure to these knots to relieve pain and dysfunction in muscles. Trigger points often cause local muscular pain and can refer pain to another area of the body when pressure is applied.
They are believed to be one of the causes of stiff joints and restricted movements in old age.
Trigger Point Therapy can reduce swelling and stiffness from muscular pain, increase movement, relieve tension, and improve circulation, flexibility and coordination.
