Soft Tissue Release | Advanced and Efficient Muscle Treatment
British Sports Therapist, Stuart Taws, developed Soft Tissue Release (STR) to lengthen and heal damaged muscle and connective tissue by slowly applying gentle pressure during dynamic stretching. This method of healing was also designed to stretch and manage all aspects of soft tissue which includes ligaments, tendons, fascia, synovial membranes, blood vessels, and nerves. By manipulating the state of these fibers, we can provide the support that clients’ neuromusculoskeletal systems need. This approach to massage therapy can often facilitate faster healing, and enhance muscular strength and flexibility after an injury. Compassion Massage is here to make sure your soft tissue is fully-functioning.
What The Process of Soft Tissue Release Entails
During the soft tissue release process, our massage therapists will apply manual pressure to the muscles at a specific level. The muscle is then brought into a pain-free stretch in order to elongate and rearrange specific muscle fibers for more efficient function. Applying pressure to the stretching of the muscles helps correct muscular imbalances in injured or scarred tissues. This treatment of soft tissue not only results in immediate relaxation, but it also produces an effective release of the tension.
Soft Tissue Release Treats Scar Tissue and Trigger Points
Although soft tissue therapy is predominantly applied to conditions related to skeletal muscle immobility and pain, it has been found to treat a variety of other conditions such as trigger points, scar tissue, and myofascial restrictions. It has also been proven to relieve and heal soft tissue injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. This technique can be effective in addressing pain caused by the effects of whiplash injuries to the neck, repetitive injuries, or chronic pain problems.
After your soft tissue therapy session, you can expect your muscles to become much more relaxed, blood circulation and lymph flow will increase, and range of motion and endorphins will increase as well. There are many more benefits that accompany the process of treating your soft tissue; contact Compassion Massage to learn more about the advantages.
