Soft tissue techniques targets muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other connective tissue such as fascia. A soft tissue massage includes a whole range of massage depths, pressures and durations. Deep Tissue reaches deep layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. Trigger points are hyper irritable spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle.
The muscles are passively positioned (usually shortened) to stop the strands of involuntary muscle contraction. I find tightness of the muscles to find tender points, usually near an articulation (joint), I position the body until the SRT tender point is gone or mostly diminished. I hold this position for 90 to 120 seconds. After, the tissue is now soft and the range of motion has increased.
A global assessment that detects compensation within the nervous system. These compensations appear as postural abnormalities and result in physical impairment. The goal is to evaluate and treat posture imbalances to restore allostasis. Posture is the outwardly expression of the nerve. Stimulating each muscle along one nerve pathway with deep, light or cross-friction pressure. treating the origin, insertion, belly, or all three, all will work because the goal is for the nerve endings within the muscles to send a signal to the brain that say's "there's a change happening here."
A gentle non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body, the touch is generally light and stilwith acute perception skills to perceive subtle physiological change. The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, especially the nervous system. BCST actually works with the core of our being, our inner core.
