Myofascial Release techniques are safe and very effective, hands-on therapies. Applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue can eliminate pain and restore motion. Dr. Handy utilizes several types, including:
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTIM)
A multi-disciplinary technique which stimulates an inflammatory response in the area that leads to increased blood flow and cellular activity around the affected soft tissue, helping the healing process.
Deep Muscle Therapy
This particular type of massage therapy focuses on realigning muscles and connective tissues. It is particularly helpful for people that have chronic tightness or limited movement and pain. Deep muscle therapy works to improve circulation and restore movement.
Also known as Cupping, a vacuum is created on the soft tissue resulting in a powerful and stimulating massage-like sensation. The suction works to relax stiff muscles and tissue, and for overall promotion of well-being. Dr. Handy has developed his own technique that is powerful but with a gentle application without the usual bruising often associated with traditional cupping.
Rapid Release Technology
Rapid Release Technology (RRT) targets painful adhesions and scar tissue using resonance and is well known to quickly relax tight muscles, cramps and spasms. Dr. Handy utilizes this modality to increase mobility and range of motion, routinely getting immediate results.
