Tissue Integration

Trauma, pain, surgery, and inflammation can cause soft tissue, connective tissue, muscular tissue, neurovascular bundle and fascial tissue to get restricted in the body resulting in dysfunctional movement, impaired quality of life, and pain. Tissue Integration combined with Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe, gentle, and very effective hands-on therapy. They involve the application of various techniques restoring all the properties of the connective and support tissues eliminating pain and enhancing performance.

Techniques used during Tissue integration:

  • Joint Mobilization
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization: cupping, TheraGun, Graston, and more
  • Lymphatic Drainage
  • Positioning
  • Joint mobilizations
  • High velocity low amplitude mobilizations
  • Neural tension release
  • Scar mobilization
  • Friction massage
  • Active stretching
  • Use of neurophysiological properties to relax and elongate tissue
  • Mindfulness
  • Principles of movement
  • Modalities
  • Pressure point balls, Foam Roll, Muscle Rollers
  • Home programs ...... and more!

We are happy to offer their expertise both as a modality during your rehabilitation or wellness session; or as a full hour of tissue integration.
