5 unexpected health benefits of Biodynamic Fascial Massage Treatment

If you're looking for an effective, holistic approach to body wellness, biodynamic massage therapy offers a variety of unexpected health benefits.

This unique, multi-faceted approach to bodywork dives deep into the body's intricate systems to help create harmony and balance.

Here are some unexpected benefits you can look forward to with treatment from the therapists at Sloan Biodynamic Massage:

Myofascial release promotes overall health

Fascia is an intricate network of connective tissue that pervades the entire body, surrounding muscles, bones, nerves and organs.

When fascia becomes restricted due to injury, inflammation or even bad posture, it can cause discomfort and hinder physiological functions.

Kristine Sloan, RMT, has advanced training in Myofascial techniques to help mobilize fascia to potentially help restore its fluidity and elasticity. This can lead to improved muscle mobility, can help restore organ function and possibly help with pain reduction which makes most of us healthier and happier.

TMJ relief

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD) can cause significant discomfort and hinder everyday activities such as eating and speaking.

Sloan uses her expertise to effectively treat TMJD by reducing inflammation, myofascial restrictions and soft tissue tension around the joint.

She also works to mobilize hypomobile joints, reduce trigger points or muscle spasms and to help restore range of motion. That means you may see a significant reduction in pain along with improved jaw function.

Alleviating chronic conditions with Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle technique that supports the central nervous system, promoting healing and enhancing health. It's known for relieving symptoms of migraines, chronic pain, anxiety, stress, multiple sclerosis, stroke along with TMJ pain. Under Sloan's expert hands, clients can expect a deeply relaxing experience that will lead to significant improvement in their symptoms and overall wellness.

Boosting thoracic and rib mobility

The thoracic region and the ribs are vital for respiratory function and spinal mobility. Through advanced techniques, Sloan can help to enhance thoracic mobility, potentially leading to better posture, improved respiratory function and decreased back and shoulder pain.

Manual lymphatic drainage enhances immunity

The lymphatic system is crucial for the body's immunity, playing a significant role in defending the body from diseases.

Sloan’s training in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) allows her to stimulate the circulation of lymph within the body. This can enhance the body's natural immunity, help in reducing inflammation and promote healing.

With the multitude of unexpected health benefits offered by biodynamic massage coupled with Sloan’s comprehensive training and focus on holistic healing, Sloan Biodynamic Massage offers an unparalleled experience.
