Myo - Skeletal Treatment
This is a treatment concentrating on the superficial to deep tissues of the skeletal system.
It is done while lying on a massage couch,
generally no oil is used and can be done fully clothed.
Using techniques such as mobilisation, traction and gentle massage movements and techniques,
as well as passive or active stretching.
The body is released of its tension allowing the bones to move from there fixed limitations
giving mobility, flexibility and a lighter feeling throughout. .
Through the combination of techniques,
even though concentration is mainly on the superficial layers to deep,
in releasing the fascia it has a domino effect in releasing the tension lines, trigger points
and kinetic chain patterns happening in the body.
There by relieving the joints and muscles,
