Neuromuscular / Trigger Point (Therapeutic)

Therapist: Erica Boulangee

Neuromuscular/Trigger Point (Therapeutic) is an intense form of bodywork that consists of focused, concentrated massage on one specific area of the body. The pressure may continue for a period of up to thirty seconds at a time, and is designed to alleviate tension that extends from a “trigger point” into an entire muscle. The theory behind Neuromuscular massage is that when a muscle spasms – due to one of any number of stimuli – it is not caused by a spasm in the entire muscle, but by a spasm in a very centralized area of the muscle, which may then reverberate to other areas of the muscle, causing pain.

Myofascial Release

Therapist: Erica Boulangee

Myofascial Release works on the restricted fascia AKA Connective Tissue of the body. This is often performed without lubrication using knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted fascia. Direct Myofascial Release seeks for changes in the myofascial structures by stretching, elongation of fascia, or mobilizing adhesive tissues. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are reached. Erica’s style of direct myofascial is a preliminary to deeper fascial work compared with Rolfing or Structural Integration.
