ANNOUNCEMENT - Myofascial Release Specialist

Myofascia Release Specialist
Elements Massage Needham is proud to recognize one of our therapists, Jazmine, as a Myofascial Release Specialist.
Since Jazmine initially joined us in January, her clients have been delighted to discover her special talent as a Myofacial Release Specialist. This approach is especially helpful for people who need pain relief or help with immobility as well as overall relaxation because Myofascial Release relaxes contracted muscles, improves blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.
Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps, supports, and protects most structures within the human body, including muscle. However, when fascia becomes too tight & restricted, it creates a generalized restricting and uncomfortable feeling throughout the body, sometimes in specific areas, creating an internal unbalance and focused pain.
Myofascial Release concentrates the intent and focus of the massage so that the fascia become looser and more pliable, resulting in a dramatic increase in comfort & relaxation.
Relaxation is Key
The most powerful aspect of Jazmine's approach is that she achieves the therapeutic goal by beginning with relaxation. Using medium to light pressure, the muscles and soft tissue relax so that it is no longer resisting the massage. Then, the massage work on the fascia is more effective, allowing for a greater stretch and pliability.
Moreover, those clients who prefer to escape, zone out, and completely relax are especially pleased with Jazmine's relaxation massage. It's a perfect way to de-stress.
