John F. Barnes Myofascial Release is a gentle method of bodywork used to release the body’s restrictions created by trauma (physical and emotional), inflammatory responses, poor posture, and/or surgical procedures. Myofascial Release uses specific techniques to stretch and repair the connective issue between your muscles (fascia). It helps your body heal properly from injuries and can restore range of motion.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage focuses on lengthening the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas that need some extra TLC to relieve pain, increase mobility, and loosen scar tissue.

Lomi Lomi is a Hawaiian method that combines a variety of techniques to relax each part of your body using primarily forearm runs integrating movements that are circles and figure eights. The movements are designed to confuse the thinking mind and invite the client to surrender, letting go of anything that is no longer serving them and to receive more of their soul energy. The massage table is oiled, and traditional Hawaiian music is played during the session, leaving you feeling relaxed and serene.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice where the air is removed from a cup, and then place on a client's skin. Dynamic cupping, also known as cupping with movement, is used to treat certain types of fascial distortions causing muscle pain. Once the cups are in place, the underlying muscles are contracted and taken through a range of motion. This technique relieves pain and tension in the tissues.
