Myofascial Release (MFR) is a massage therapy technique that involves working with the connective tissue surrounding the muscles to eliminate restrictions and restore balance. Trauma, inflammatory responses, postural patterns and adhesions create Myofascial restrictions. MFR’s goal is to create a more free and integrated body structure. At Epiphany Acupuncture, we believe it's possible to store memories in our connective tissue and so by working to restore healthy tissue it aides in clarity of the mind and emotional intelligence.
Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork that is based in the theoretical teachings of Chinese Medicine. The massage is performed with the client fully clothed as the practitioner uses finger pressure along the traditional acupuncture channels. The goal is to restore balance within the energetic body and its associated organ networks.
