Tonya uses a variety of massage techniques to help her clients heal. These include deep tissue and muscle energy techniques, post-surgical and pregnancy massage, as well as visceral manipulation and myofascial therapy.
Visceral manipulation focuses on the organs, membranes, fascia, and ligaments. This massage technique can address adhesions that have developed as a result from surgical scars, disease, poor posture, and injuries. Visceral manipulation works on tension patterns that create functional and structural problems.
Myofascial therapy works on the 3 dimensional web of connective tissue that forms the structure of the body, surrounding every muscle, ligament, and organ. The work is generally quite painless, involving a slow and sustained pressure and stretch. Releasing the fascial layer around the muscles allows for a much greater release and improved function from the muscles than working on the muscles alone.
