Types of Massage
The Myokinesthetic (My-o-kin-es-thet-ic) system is a highly effective therapy for relief for pain, lost range of motion, and other health-related issues, involving muscle, soft tissue, and nerves.
Myokinesthetic System Myo = muscle, Kinesthetic = movement. Myokinesthetic therapy is a soft tissue treatment option that focuses on muscle, soft tissue, and nerves.
This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
This is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
Trigger Point Massage
This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
What is Myokinesthetic Massage?
Owner and Massage Therapist
About ten years ago it became apparent to me that I needed to makeing a career change because my vision was failing. My research brought me to the conclusion that the best choice for my next career that fit with my interests was massage therapy.
I started my training in 2008 in Napa California at Lifestream Massage School. Moved to Colorado Springs and continued my education at the Colorado Institute for Massage Therapy finishing that portion of my training in 2010. While looking for continuing education classes I discovered The Myokinesthetic System and became a certified practitioner in that system.
