Bodywork & Massage Therapies
There are many definitions of Structural Bodywork and many massage techniques are used in this form of bodywork. In short, Structural Bodywork is lengthening chronically shortened soft tissue of the body to help the body oppose gravity properly. In most cases, this takes regular and consistent work to reeducate these shortened areas. When the skeleton opposes gravity properly, nerve compression can be alleviated and chronic pain can be reduced.
Myofascial Release (MFR)
Myofascial Release is a gentle, powerful effective treatment for soft tissue pain and dysfunction as fascia is the most abundant tissue in our body. It covers us from head to toe, it contains our organs, wraps every muscle fiber, even our bones are hard dense fascia. It’s ubiquitous, continuous and everywhere. MFR therapy uses gentle holds to break open the crosslinks that become glued together from poor posture, trauma inflammation, ect. By releasing these restrictions, we can take enormous amounts of pressure off sensitive structures such as nerves and blood vessels. MFR is effective in treating misaligned posture, body mechanics, pain, headaches, fatigue, menstrual pain and normalizing system functions. This system allows our bodies to self regulate through proprioception and the body’s intelligence. Issues missed in medical tests are often more likely found in the myofascial tissue. Most pms symptoms can be caused by a torsion in the pelvis, causing restrictions, leading to inflamed ovaries from lack of blood flow. Most headaches can be treated by understanding the relationship the pelvis has with the spine and head. Any imbalance in one area can show up in another. Everything is connected in this web of fascia.
Recognized world-wide by many medical professionals as a very effective type of massage therapy for pain, neuromuscular therapy is also called trigger point myotherapy. The work combines compression and friction of the soft tissue to flush lactic acid from the muscles while increasing healthy blood flow.
True neuromuscular massage can be intense but should never be uncomfortable. Good neuromuscular therapy works from superficial to deep, lengthening shortened or hypertonic tissue to restore balance in joints and muscle compartments. All the therapists at Jasmine Advanced Bodywork are nationally certified in Neuromuscular Massage Therapy.
Osteopath Dr. William Sutherland developed the modality we call Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST). In the 1930s, he realized that there is a small degree of motion allowed by the beveled cranial sutures, allowing them to move or “breathe”, pulsing with the body. The motion occurs in relation to the tissues and cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system, the membranes surrounding the central nervous system and the sacrum. Balancing the dural rhythm is also effective in relieving migraine symptoms.
Passive Limb Suspension
A technique invented by Chad Jasmine uses PLS resistance bands, cuffs and harnesses to comfortably suspend a limb (arm or leg) so the muscles and joints can be palpated in a whole new and incredibly effective way. The bungie-like action of the resistance bands allows the patient to achieve total passivity. This weightlessness or anti-gravity positioning allows for zero tonicity in the muscles that attach in the joints. With the limb suspended, joints like hips, shoulders, knees and ankles are completely accessible and able to receive therapeutic soft tissue mobilization in a new and very effective way.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a form of gentle massage that encourages the healthy movement of lymph fluids through the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the body’s tissues.
Some health conditions can cause lymphatic fluid to build up. MLD can be a very beneficial treatment for those who suffer with lymphedema, fibromyalgia as well as other conditions. Also, MLD is essential for post surgical conditions, especially for those who have undergone procedures such as liposuction, tummy tucks and BBL surgeries. Receiving MLD as soon as your physician gives the go ahead cannot only speed healing, but can also help to achieve the desired result of these surgical procedures.
We are all made up of life energy.
We are all Stardust.
We are all vibrations.
All of the therapists at Jasmine Advanced Bodywork are trained in energy work(reiki) and distance healing. A therapist trained in Reiki opens up their crown chakra letting the universal life energy into their crown and then is able to administer that energy to the client on the table while keeping their hands 6 to 8 inches off the body.
These sessions are sometimes the most intense and poignant sessions even though in many cases there is no physical contact, just energy is transmitted. Every session, no matter what the modality, includes some form of energy work with visualization and intention as the therapist transmits and delivers the universal life energy to the client. We come to work each day tuned in and we pride ourselves on this kind of focused work making every session unique and effective.
Since the temporomandibular joint is the only bilateral joint in the body, a healthy and balanced TMJ is essential for overall well-being. Clenching of the jaw due to stress, or grinding of the teeth while sleeping can overtime cause problems in the TMJ. When imbalances occur, symptoms like pain, clicking, popping and locking can result. It is very easy for someone’s TMJ to become misaligned, this can cause painful and sometimes debilitating symptoms from neck and jaw pain to severe migraine and loss of sleep. Temporomandibular joint dysfunction is painful and quite common, but can be helped greatly with TMJ therapy.
TMJ therapy is a technique that advanced therapists use to balance the temporomandibular joint and alleviate the symptoms caused by TMJ dysfunction. The technique includes palpating muscles inside the mouth(intraoral) as well as on the surface of the face and head. For the most part the intraoral sessions do not take long and the results are usually quick and dramatic. Repeat visits may be necessary depending on the severity of the imbalance and dysfunction.
Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to the feet, hands, and ears. It’s based on a theory that these body parts are connected to certain organs and body systems.
In traditional Chinese medicine Reflexology rests on the ancient Chinese belief in qi (pronounced “ch’i”), or “life energy.” According to this belief, qi flows through each person. When a person feels stressed, their body blocks qi. This can cause an imbalance in the body that leads to illness. Reflexology aims to keep qi flowing through the body, keeping it balanced and disease free.
In Chinese medicine, different body parts correspond with different pressure points on the body. Reflexologists use maps of these points in the feet, hands, and ears to determine where they should apply pressure. Reflexology sends energy flowing through a person’s body until it reaches the area in need of healing.
Frequency specific microcurrent is a therapy and a practice of introducing a low/mild electrical current into an area of damaged soft tissue. This helps increase adenosine triphosphate (cellular energy) in any targeted tissue. This also allows our body to self regulate and heal itself. Microcurrent has been shown to be very effective in treating inflammation, concussions, nerve pain, muscle pain and many more. The device used is considered a tens unit. This does not use macrocurrents to stimulate or override the nerve current, this unit flows with the body’s natural currents to allow a flow of energy to support proper functions.
Visceral Bodywork is a gentle manual therapy technique that assesses the relationship between the body’s organs (e.g. bladder, bowel, uterus, etc) and other structures, like muscles, fascia, ligaments and joints.
The organs in our body have a certain range of movement that is normal, just like our joints, they need to move within a normal range so we can function.
The movement of an organ can be restricted by surgical scars, adhesions, infection, illness, poor posture or traumatic injury. A restriction prevents the “gliding and sliding” action of the organ over other structures within the body, creating an area of fixation. Our body learns to accommodate by moving around this area of tension, and over time this repeated movement leads to chronic irritation and inflammation causing musculoskeletal, neural and visceral dysfunction.
Jean-Pierre Barral, a French Osteopath and Physical Therapist developed Visceral Manipulation. Through his extensive knowledge of anatomy and precise palpation skills, he has created a highly sophisticated and specific manual therapy technique that restores normal visceral (organ) movement and function and helps to integrate the function or movement of the body as a whole.
Visceral Bodywork has been effective in the treatment of:
- Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
- Chronic Pelvic Pain
- Fibroids & Cysts
- Interstitial Cystitis
- Bladder urgency/frequency
- Bladder incontinence
- Urinary and sexual dysfunction associated with an enlarged prostate
- Referred penile and testicular pain
- Constipation and Bloating
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- GERD, Acid Reflux
- Chronic Spinal Dysfunction
- Joint Pain
- Post Operative Scar Tissue
- Anxiety and Depression
“Relaxation” is the most basic but arguably the most important effect of massage. The main technique is called Swedish. The human nervous system has only two responses: a “sympathetic” and a “parasympathetic”.
It can only be in one of these responses at a time. When in a sympathetic response, the body is stressed, working or tasking. The stress while in a sympathetic response creates Cortisol which causes pain and inflammation.
When the body is in a parasympathetic response the body is able to do all the things that we want it to do like digest food, absorb nutrients, strengthen the immune system, create new cells and basically heal itself.
Relaxation massage makes us nicer, happier, healthier and better people.
Clinical / Medical Massage
A very specific approach to soft tissue mobilization that is recognized and prescribed in the medical world and corresponds with some health insurance companies. These techniques include compression, both static and pinch, with fiber and cross fiber friction. These techniques are documented in 15 minute increments for insurance billing and insurance reimbursement purposes.
Massage therapy is a wonderful tool for any woman on her pregnant journey because pregnancy may be both stressful and unpleasant. Every therapist at Jasmine Advanced Bodywork is trained in pregnancy massage and understands the contraindications involved during each trimester.
Reducing stress during pregnancy is one of the most important things a woman can do for herself. An expecting mother should always know she is receiving pregnancy massage from a trained professional.
Infant & Kids Massage
Massage therapy is a safe and effective way to treat pain, injury and structural imbalance no matter what age, so it only makes sense that more and more parents are discovering massage therapy as a valuable treatment for their children.
All the therapists at Jasmine Advance Bodywork have extensive experience in working with kids. Whether it’s pain or injury caused by youth sports or just the many growing pains that can arise in a young person’s life, massage therapy can be a great alternative to medications.
Every child receiving treatment at Jasmine events’ bodywork is always accompanied by one of the parents inside the treatment room. A full evaluation and comprehensive treatment plan will be explained to both parent and child because making everyone feel comfortable and informed is very important to us.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder comes in many shapes and sizes. That’s why treating a lasting parasympathetic response in the nervous system for those who suffer with PTSD is of the utmost importance.
The very definition of massage at its most basic level is that it reduces stress, slows the heart, flushes toxins and promotes a parasympathetic response in the nervous system. Massage therapy, because of its ability to calm the nervous system, is highly beneficial for those suffering with PTSD.
Depending on the level of trauma and stress, the massage treatment plan will be tailored to fit each individual’s needs as they begin their path towards healing.
An ancient Chinese massage therapy that makes use of various hand techniques in combination with acupuncture and other manipulation techniques to enhance the healing process. Many of the techniques used in this massage resemble that of a western massage like gliding, kneading, rubbing, vibration, tapping, friction, pulling, rolling, pressing, and shaking. In Tui Na massage, the muscles and tendons are massaged with the help of hands, and an acupuncture technique.
The use of therapeutic cups designed to suction to the skin. Our intention is to bring blood to the surface, filling and flushing our soft tissues with vital blood, increasing cellular energy to support soft tissue function. A therapist will also utilize a facial stretch with 2 cups for a shearing, counterstain technique to break open the crosslinks in the facia as well as elongating the sarcomeres in the muscle fibers.
Used for thousands of years in China, acupressure applies the same principles as acupuncture to promote relaxation and wellness and to treat disease. Sometimes called pressure acupuncture, Acupressure is often thought of as simply acupuncture without the needles. But what exactly is acupressure and how does it work?
Acupressure is just one of a number of Asian bodywork therapies (ABT) with roots in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Examples of other Asian bodywork therapies are medical qigong and Tuina. Shiatsu is a Japanese form of acupressure.
Traditional Chinese medical theory describes special acupoints, or acupressure points, that lie along meridians, or channels, in your body. These are the same energy meridians and acupoints as those targeted with acupuncture. It is believed that through these invisible channels flows vital energy — or a life force called qi (ch’i). It is also believed that these 12 major meridians connect specific organs or networks of organs, organizing a system of communication throughout your body. The meridians begin at your fingertips, connect to your brain, and then connect to an organ associated with a certain meridian.
According to this theory, when one of these meridians is blocked or out of balance, illness can occur. Acupressure and acupuncture are among the types of TCM that are thought to help restore balance.
Intestinal problems like constipation and IBS are quite common so creating “flow” in the digestive system can give relief and help alleviate these problems.
Digestive massage is very gentle and promotes the movement that may be lacking in a person’s visceral cavity. The benefits of visceral fascial unwinding are amazing and oftentimes immediate, it doesn’t just help with irregularity but also with the absorption of nutrients and improved sleep patterns.
It’s natural for animals to enjoy massages, just as humans do and it’s not surprising because animals, like humans, suffer from pain and injury. Jasmine Advanced Bodywork provides massage therapy for animals, mostly of the canine and equine variety.
