Myofascial Release

Because of trauma or overuse tissue can develop adhesions and harden, which decreases mobility. Therefore, the myofascial release techniques are used to promote a more fluid state for the fascia. Using specific pressure in specific directions, the fascia warms and "melts" to allow for deeper work to be done.

Ear Candling

Candling was used by the Egyptians and Native Americans to relieve sinus pressure and improve balance. A hollow candle is placed on the edge of the ear and the top end is lit.
