Myofascial Release Massage St. Pete | Myofascial Release Massage, St. Petersurg, FL

First of all, what is the fascia?  Fascia is connective tissue, found surrounding muscles and throughout the body. Fascia, as defined by Wikipedia:

fascia (/ˈfæʃ(i)ə/; plural fasciae /ˈfæʃii/; adjective fascial; from Latin: “band”) is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.[1] Fasciae are similar to ligaments and tendons as they have collagen as their major component. They differ in their location and function: ligaments join one bone to another bone, tendons join muscle to bone, and fasciae surround muscles and other structures.

What is a Myofascial Release Massage?

Myofascial release massage is a massage which focuses on the fascia to work out restrictions that may be causing pain or restricting movement.  Unlike a standard therapeutic massage where the overall goal is relaxation, this type of massage tends to use slower, sustained pressure, and specific myofascial release techniques to help restore motion and flexibility.  The licensed massage therapist will palpate to find areas restriction (knots) in the fascia, then use long, slow, sustained pressure to glide along the fascia, stretching the connective tissue and releasing tension.

I typically combine myofascial release with other massage therapy techniques to provide an overall therapeutic massage that is customized to meet the needs of your body and to help you find relief and relax.  For instance, I may use traditional Swedish or deep tissue massage techniques and stretching to enhance your service.

Benefits of a Myofascial Release Massage

If you have painful knots of tension and restricted range of motion, you may find some benefit in a myofascial release massage.    A regular series of massages will be helpful in increasing blood flow, improving range of motion, reducing tension and pain, and enabling you to reduce your stress.  Improved posture and flexibility may also be additional benefits from regular massage therapy sessions.

Pain free

Jonathan Prue has been my massage therapist for the last 12 years. After a body massage from Jonathan, I am pain free for 3 days! I drove an hour each way to get a session with him each month.  He tailors his therapy to address my current needs and could identify the point of origin of my pain, work on it, and give me relief from my chronic pain.

Skilled, with such intuition

I have been a regular monthly client of Jonathan's for over 10 years, before his move from Oregon to Florida. Like myself, I am sure that many of his clients were sad to lose him to sunny Florida. I am not sure that I will find another massage therapist as skilled, with such intuition. Highest recommendation!

Relaxed, renewed, & ready to take on the day

I have had many massages over the years and not one LMT has left me feeling the way I felt during and after my massage with Jonathan- relaxed, refreshed, renewed, ready to take on the day, balanced, and just all around more in tune with my body.  I am amazed by his work, his energy, and the entire ambiance of the place.  It truly was a Spiritual Experience!
