Zingara - Muscle Therapy uses many different forms of Therapeutic Neuromuscular Massage and Normalization of Soft Tissue (NST) techniques to reset the muscle patterns throughout the entire body
Here are just a few of these techniques:
~ Kinesiology: Understanding of how one muscle will affect many others
~ Posture Deviation Analysis: Determining what postural stances are present in the body - if congenital (genetic) or functional (caused from repetitive motion injury or from physical injury).
~ Proprioception: Resetting the body’s awareness of where it is in space and time (why you don’t walk into furniture)
~ Knowledge of Anatomy: Locations of the origins and insertions of each muscle in the body (where the muscles attach to the bone)
~ Orthopedic Massage: Deeper understanding of the body’s postural deviations, specifically used in the reduction of Lordosis, Kyphosis and Scoliosis (different types of curves in the spine)
~ Deep Therapeutic Pressure: Intense full pressure for maximum release of each muscle group
~ Normalization of Soft Tissue (NST): Releasing tension and scar patterns in the body with Trigger Point Release (knots) and Cyriax Cross Fiber Friction (scar tissue)
~ Trigger Point Release: Physically removing the “knot” using a series of deep holds and flushing
~ Lymph Drainage: Waking up the body’s immune system by opening the lymph ducts
~ Inner Oral: Resetting the muscles inside of the mouth (TMJDisorder, Grinding or Clenching Teeth)
~ Shiatsu: Releasing the energy throughout entire body – the Japanese form of Acupuncture, using thumbs instead of needles
~ Integrative Massage: Incorporating breath, movement, physical sensation, sound and verbal interaction
~ Pre and Post Natal: Focus on the areas specific of soon to be mothers and new mothers
~ Reflexology: Coordinating body parts to regions on the hands and feet
~ Swedish Massage: Long sweeping strokes, mixed with different tempos and techniques to deeply flush and relax the entire body (long, smooth connecting strokes)
