My approach to a massage session starts with a brief conversation to understand the client's needs, preferences, and any medical conditions that may impact the massage. This is of utmost importance to ensure a safe, comfortable experience. During this part of the massage, I take note of areas of tension as well as any potential medical issues that may require special consideration. This helps me customize the massage experience and tailor the session to the individual needs of the particular client.
Once I have an understanding of the needs, preferences, and any medical conditions, I decide on which areas of the body will be worked on, and which techniques will be used to address the root causes of pain & dysfunction. I take a holistic approach by integrating & focusing on the myofascial system. When approaching fascia system during massage therapy, it's important to understand the role of fascia and how it relates to the overall well-being of the body. Fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, bones, organs, and other structures in the body. It plays a crucial role in maintaining structural integrity, providing stability, and allowing for efficient movement.
