SCAR-ADHESION RELEASE THERAPY (SART) Scar’s and adhesions grow in the body as a normal response to injury. This injury may be caused by repetitive strain, fracture, blunt force impact, or surgery. Adhered tissues are released and then realigned from their starting point, which is the visible scar, to their endpoint — where the line of frozen fascia stops. No matter how new or old your scar. Using the Marjorie Brooks STRAIT™ Method (STR), combined with Lymph drainage (MLD) and Myofascial release (MFR) this therapy has been effective in minimizing scar-tissue development and the subsequent physiological restrictions. Sympathetic Nervous System – When the body experiences trauma, the sympathetic nervous system becomes upregulated, and stress is produced within the body, increasing vagal tone, which then leads to muscle hypertonicity. Strain & Pull Fascia – When our body creates scars as a result of physical trauma, such as an accident or surgery, our body’s fascia, which connects to all muscles and organs of the body, can become strained and pulled. One small strain can cause significant muscle imbalances throughout the body, producing pain and muscle weakness often far removed from scar or trauma site. Adhesions – In some instances, physical trauma, such as surgery, or illness, can cause adhesions, or internal scarring, inside the muscles and body. Adhesions reduce muscle performance (shutting down) and produce pain.
LYMPHO-FASCIA RELEASE (LFR) A combined, non-invasive technique the LFR approach combines the benefits of fluid techniques, using lymphatic-drainage therapy, with those of myofascial release. Uses gentle pressure and stretching to release the covering, or ‘fascia’, of the muscles. It helps relieve pain and motion restriction and is ideal for muscles that feel tight and won’t release. The lymph system is an open system throughout the whole body. It is only interrupted by nodes that control the flow of lymph fluid and acts a filter. Nodes also contain immune cells that destroy waste and bacteria. Impaired circulation leads to a build-up of toxins which in turn can lead to many re-occurring illnesses and feelings of sluggishness due to a stressed immune system. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle, rhythmic massage, which stimulates the lymph nodes to open and drain. LFR is excellent for treating chronic pain conditions because chronic pain is often an indication of lymph congestion and restriction of the fascia on some level. Because of its effectiveness in reducing scarring and inflammation, this approach also has positive implications for difficult conditions, including long-term fibrosis and fibromyalgia. *Where appropriate Kinesio Taping® may be needed to aid in continual Lymph drainage – sold separately
REFLEXOLOGY (FEET) Reflexology is based on the principle that the whole body is ‘mapped’ onto the foot. By applying gentle but firm pressure to specific areas of the feet you can stimulate or alleviate any pain to the different organs or systems of the body.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR) Manipulation and adjusting of fascia (light and deep) caught throughout the body from impact, serious injury, surgery. It helps relieve pain and motion restriction and is ideal for muscles that feel tight and won’t release
REFLEX LYMPH DRAINAGE (RLD) Relieves stress and tension, encourages relaxation and stimulation of the circulatory and nervous systems. It activates the body self-healing progress. Helps to stimulate lymph removal from common areas of swelling (Feet, Legs, Arms)
FOOT MASSAGE & REFLEXOLOGY (RFM) This is for those customers who love a full Foot Massage but the added bonus of a Reflexology treatment.
