Training: Our Licensed Massage Therapists are board-certified practitioners of Synergetic® Myofascial Therapy™ trained by Magnus Eklund BCSI, LMT 144, Board Certified Structural Integrator, in a 200-hour graduate level 5 program. Magnus is a graduate Rolf KMI Institute and studied under Thomas Myers, the originator of the Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians. This modernized training emphasizes movement (active release) for better assessment, faster and more effective releases, client safety, and neural/proprioceptive integration of the work, and is very much rooted in the classic Rolf 10 series.
Our massage therapists apply advanced training in orthopedic bodywork to the 10 series work for maximizing therapeutic benefits of massage for specific conditions and injuries.
Synergetic Myofascial Therapy: SMT is results-oriented, focused on healing and strengthening. Our massage therapists work slowly, never forcing, listening to and communicating with the tissue, to experience the “melt” of the fascia. A key component to the success of this treatment is client interaction and work.
This type of massage therapy emits feelings of openness and lightness throughout the body with increased functional movement and a more grounded stance. Feeling all parts of the feet touching the floor is common. In our experience, this style of bodywork “holds” for more extended periods of time than other methods, and is the only work we have found that dramatically affects a positive change in posture.
10 Series: Synergetic Myofascial Therapy uses a series of ten sessions that include check and release through the whole body in a well thought out sequence. Since everything is connected, one issue may be caused by or affecting other areas of the body. Once most of these hidden adhesions are released, complete relief is possible.
In addition to addressing pain or injury, other effects of SMT are exercising more efficiently, breathing better, improved posture, fewer injuries, and increased flexibility, as well as possible emotional releases.
