Deep tissue massage - massage therapy in Tempe AZ

Deep Tissue Massage

A form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Trigger Point Therapy

A type of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy - massage therapy in Tempe AZ

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle and subtle whole body method to the human experience. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) works in conjunction with our Core, the Core of Our Being.Physically - BCST influences the central nervous system; brain and spinal column, and also the fluid that bathes it. The fluid is named the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). From the skeletal system and our bones of the cranium to the ebbing and flowing of the endocrine system, this cranial modality is very effective, but gentle. Emotionally- Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can affect deep and primary patterns, but provides the client with resource and space to explore their emotional landscape. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy will provide a deep sense of resourcing within the client. This resourcing gives a safe container for emotional issues to resolve.

Spiritually- Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can open doors to our hearts and our soul, greatly changing our lives.

A Little Background

Craniosacral biodynamics is a progressive approach of energy medicine. The study of this type of Craniosacral therapy, as taught by Franklyn Sills, tends to focus on the formation of a relationship between the practitioner and the Inherent Ordering Principle, the Breath of Life of the client.

The work of Franklyn Sills is deeply influenced by his Buddhist beliefs and practices. He was also influenced by the works of Dr. W.G. Sutherland, who believed that the human system was much more than just bones, fluid, tissues and biochemicals. Dr. Sutherland experienced a “Creative Intelligence” which orders and organizes several layers of the human system. The display of this Intelligence is expressed as tidal movement. Three different types of tides can be sensed in the human system; they are the Long Tide, mid-tide and cranial rhythmic impulse. The works of Dr. Rollin Becker, D.O. and Dr. David Bohm influenced the development of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy by his introduction to the holographic concept and tidal rhythms of the body. The Breath of Life holographically reveals a blue print principle, or Original matrix, at the time of conception. It is around this matrix that we can maintain the integrity of our human form.

The strength of the Breath of Life is palpable as it unfolds throughout the layers of the body. This biodynamic ordering procedure expresses an inherent treatment plan to resolve the inertial resistance in the human body. The inertia is created from unresolved trauma of life experiences becoming condensed within the human system.

The practitioner is trained to sense the many different levels of stillness and thus palpate the expression of the system as the treatment unfolds according to its own Ordering Principle.

It is a gentle and very subtle whole body approach to the human experience. This hands on therapy is also non-manipulative and non-invasive.

Myofascial Release

A form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
