Got Pain! Aches, Stress or Tension? I Like A Good Challenge! Bring It On!
This style of "Deep Core Bodywork" is what most people are looking for in a deeper massage, but with so many variations of massage out there, it's difficult for anyone to know the best terminology (in research) to use in their search. "Myo-Fascial (Meridian Line) Release", is my type of work I use. I guaranty you'll be satisfied with my work. I'm very thankful to be so uniquely gifted, and to love to use my gift to help others in need. Got Pain? Structural & Movement Bodywork! by SxSRest Massage!

Medical Structural Bodywork, Myo-Fascial Meridian Line Release & Sports Deep Tissue Movement Therapy Unlocks the Years of Chronic Muscle Build Up. Experience the best in "Myo Fascial Release"!
Humans have seven layers of fascia starting from the skin down to the bone. I focus in the third layer, our Superficial Myo Fascia, which also weaves or webs though our deeper muscle tissue layers to grip onto the bone, e.g. like the thin white lines or webbing that you see in meat cuts at the market place. This weaving involves Myo Fascial Meridian Lines or our "Postural Set"...The layer which molds us into the shape that we are. These meridian lines (e.g. like deep puppet strings) connect from your head down to your feet and back (stabilized meridians) and from head to mid back and out arms (mobile meridians), which shorten or tighten up across joints, causing the different types of pain we humans feel as restricted joint movements, muscle soreness, tension & chronic muscle build up. Most pain is referred from another area in the body. My style of work is like an assisted stretching session, which helps to free you up from those binding tight meridians. The terminology some doctors use is fibromyalgia, in serious chronic cases, among many other terminologies.
I'll teach you in your bodywork session, what you can do to have preventative maintenance. If you have any Questions - Please feel free to call me and ask away! Steve at (512) 477-5772
About My Work:
Medical Structural Bodywork Therapy best describes the style of work I perform to unlock groups of muscles that ache, hold stress or spasm do to: Over exertion from strenuous exercise - Sports injuries - Auto or other accidents - Jobs with same repetitions or movements...Such as sitting at computers for hours every day or standing, lifting & etc...Or just from sleeping in wrong positions and waking up in pain...Doctors note that 80% of their patients mention that they woke up in pain, or from that sudden movement that pulls something out of whack in the morning, when your body's muscle tension was not quite ready for that movement yet!
I have 10 years of hands on experience in performing Medical Injury or Structural Bodywork, Myo-Fascial Meridian Line Release & Sports Deep Tissue Movement Treatment at Chiropractic & Spine Rehab Centers, Sports Events and on Patients who have been referred to me by Doctors and Chiropractors...Patients who are in pain from all types of accidents, injuries, neurological or body structural problems and those who've had surgery too! I have a very keen sense and a unique knowledge of each individual’s body anatomy and along with the history of the each individual’s pain issues...As I keep soap charts like doctors do...Helps me to know which techniques or treatments to use. My techniques will not take individuals over their own pain thresholds (Not a forced type of work), just an easy experience of a "No Pain - No Gain", where everyone insists that I "DO NOT STOP" when I am on it! - Insisting that they know this style of bodywork helps them, and will bring them longer lasting results!

About My Rates: Medical Structural Bodywork Therapy, Deep Tissue, or Sports Movement Bodywork rates are: $75 Per Hour & $105 Per 1-1/2 Hour. Please Note! $10 OFF! All first time visit Bodywork Therapy.
On-site or Corporate Chair Massage Rate is $1 per minute. I will come to your office and work on as many people who sign up for 15 minute increments’ sessions during my one day visit. And if there is room, I prefer bringing a massage table instead of a chair, as it is much easier to work on low backs and most other body issues, than using a chair.
Types of Work: Medical Structural & Movement Therapy - Unlocks the Years of Chronic Muscle Build Up, those hard, tight & painful muscles, and helps to release Spasms from Body Structural Problems, Same Repetition Movements, Accidents and Body Injuries. Trigger Point and Myotherapy are pain-relief techniques to alleviate muscle spasms and cramping. With this process I locate and deactivate `trigger points'. The goal is to reduce spasm, inducing new blood flow into the affected area. Spasms physically reduce blood flow and oxygen to the trigger point area (ischemia). Pressure is briefly applied to trigger points. It is common to hit the same trigger points several times during a session, instead of leaning into a sore spot "too deep" or for too lengthily a time, which would cause the trigger point to fight back and tense up more. Often ice or another cooling agent is used to reduce nervous system response, making the area easier and more comfortable to work. Then the muscles are gently stretched to complete the relaxation process. Myotherapy aims to erase pain and soothe tightened muscles.
Sports Massage - is used primarily for the serious athlete who trains continuously. It focuses on the muscles "relevant" to the particular athletic activity. It also can include pre-event, post-event and maintenance techniques that promote greater athletic endurance and performance, lessening chances of injury and reduce recovery time. I also manage or coordinate therapists for sports massage at sports events, we call ourselves "All Event Therapists", and you will usually see our group working sports events at most all events in and around Austin and more.
Deep Tissue Massage - is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct pressure applied across the grain of the muscles. This invigorating experience is a process of detection of tight or painful areas by determining the quality and texture of the deeper layers of musculature, and slowly working into the deep layers of muscle tissue. Specific hand, forearm, and elbow positions are then used to respond to various tissue qualities. Techniques employing breath and movement are also used for unlocking muscular congestion.
Swedish Massage - is a collection of techniques designed primarily to relax muscles by applying pressure against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage can relax muscles, increase circulation, remove metabolic waste products, and help the recipient obtain a feeling of connectedness, a better awareness of their body. One of the primary goals of Swedish massage is to speed venous return from the extremities. Swedish massage flushes the tissue of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes, while improving circulation without increasing heart load.
On-site or Corporate Chair Massage - is one name for a short (15-20 minute) massage of a client sitting in a special, portable massage chair. The client remains fully clothed while their shoulders, neck, upper back, head and arms are massaged.
