We strive to approach every unique body with a combination of carefully honed techniques and skills that will help each individual reach his or her muscular balance goals. We are licensed massage therapists, but we brand our work as Muscular Therapy because we work directly with the muscular system to smooth out imbalances, coach the nervous system to release tension and teach our clients how to continue to care for their muscles at home for maximum benefits.
The specialized therapists at Immerse will listen to how you’re using your body and how your body feels, and then, they will apply a seamless combination of multiple techniques that will help you reach your goals for muscular balance.
Therefore, combinations of the following techniques may be applied during any session at Immerse. Please be open with your therapist on your preferences so they can best serve you.
CranioSacral therapy is a light touch therapy that releases deep tension in the body to relieve areas of dysfunction and stagnation for overall vitality. It helps fascia to release and the body to return to its homeostasis. CranioSacral work is extremely relaxing and essentially self-healing. It is excellent for those struggling with chronic pain, imbalances in the musculoskeletal system, and for those seeking overall health and vitality through bodywork.
Therapeutic stretching is used by a practitioner to warm, stretch and elongate muscles. Not only does stretching support one's joints and muscles, but it also improves his/her emotional health by reducing stress levels in the body. A few benefits of stretching include increased range of motion and flexibility, improved circulation, improved posture, stress relief and pain relief.
Assisted stretching is a gentle technique that takes the joints and muscles through a range of motion for optimal movement. It helps to relax deep muscle fibers by holding a stretch for typically 60-90 seconds.
Therapeutic stretching can be used as a compliment to your massage session. Stretch sessions can be beneficial for athletes and for those seeking relaxation.
