What is a myofascial massage?

Myofascia is literally a muscle band that wraps around your muscles and internal organs.  When you are fairly sedentary, so for example at night when you sleep, fascia will grow.  Whilst this has some positive effects such as maintaining posture, if your the majority of your time is spend in for example a poor posture, then this will be difficult to correct unless your fasica is released.


A myofascial massage works to loosen the fascia and release your muscles, organs and bones from restrictive and often painful positions.


Myofascial massage is an oil free massage that uses a series of slow moves to gradually stretch and release your fascia from under the surface of your skin.

Is there a consultation process?

Yes.  If you have a computer, to save your treatment time, we’ll send you a consultation form to complete before you come along for your myofascial massage.  This will allow you to detail any conditions you have such as aches and pains, allergies etc.  This will remain confidential between you and your therapist.  You will need to sign the form to say that you are happy to go ahead with the treatment.

 

When you arrive we’ll chat through this to fully understand what you would like to get out of your myofascial massage treatment and establish any areas that will require additional treatment.  We will then decide on a treatment plan.

Where will I be treated?

Your myofascial massage will be in a comfortable, calm treatment room with soft lighting.

 

After your consultation, your therapist will show you to your treatment room where you will undress to your lower underwear whilst your therapist is out of the room.  You will then lie on the bed, cover yourself with 2 luxury towels & only then will your therapist re-enter the treatment room.

 

Who will treat me?

Charlton will be your massage therapist, here are what our clients say about him:


A very relaxing massage, it really eased the pain in my shoulders after just one hour - no mean feat considering it had been there for 6 months prior!

 

What will happen during the treatment?

During your myofascial massage therapy, your body will be covered at all times with soft towels, with the exception of the area you are having your myofascial massage on of course! Your modesty will be maintained at all times throughout your massage treatment.

 

What do I do during a massage therapy treatment?

Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, he or she will either move you or will ask you to move as necessary. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. Many people close their eyes and relax completely during a session; others prefer to talk. It's up to you. It is your massage, and whatever feels natural to you is the best way to relax. Do not hesitate to ask questions at any time.

 

During a massage your body releases toxins. This process can mean that your body temperature can change at any time, so please do say if you become cold.

 

How will I feel after a myofascial massage?

You may feel tired or relaxed after your myofascial massage, however, most people will then feel they have a new lease of  life with their muscles feeling far more free than they can remember.  You may experience some aches and pains for around 24 hours after your treatment as the body flushes the toxins that have been released out.  In order to speed this process along, drink lots of water after your massage.

 

Why would I not be able to have a myofascial  massage?

There are a few conditions which mean a myofascial massage would not be the best holistic therapy for you.  In this instance, we wouldn’t be able to treat you with a myofascial massage, but there are plenty of other therapies that would be more suitable and we can help and advise you in making the best choice.
