Relaxation Massage:

Swedish techniques with light to medium pressure will calm body and mind helping you decompression after a busy day or long week.

Therapeutic Massage:

A customized massage focused on your problem areas.  A combination of techniques will be used to help relief tension, pain, and imbalances.

Myofascial Release:

Specific techniques used to release the fascia that has become solidified due to trauma, an inflammatory response, or a structural imbalance that will give long term relief. (90min not available)

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.

Everything is fascia. At two weeks after conception you were nothing more than a ball of fascia. Fascia IS the structure of our bodies, everything is or once was fascia!

When one experiences physical trauma, emotional trauma, scarring, or inflammation, however, the fascia loses its pliability. It becomes tight, restricted, and a source of tension to the rest of the body.

When we experience a trauma, such as a fall, car accident, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture and repetitive stress injuries has cumulative effects on the body. The changes trauma causes in the fascial system influences comfort and function of our body.

Fascial restrictions can exert excessive pressure causing all kinds of symptoms producing pain, headaches or restriction of motion. Fascial restrictions affect our flexibility and stability, and are a determining factor in our ability to withstand stress and perform daily activities.  [mayofascialrelease.com]

Meet Katie Schliepp of Shiva Shakti Yoga & Massage

Hi, my name is Katie Schliepp!

I fell in love with massage by the young age of 15, and knew it would be my career path. Being an athlete at that time in my life, and receiving an occasional massage, I was able to experience, first-hand, the benefits that came with it. Exceeding far beyond the trademarks of stress-relief and relaxation, massage therapy can also relieve pain, improve overall athletic performance, and help general movement in everyday life. Massage therapy is a natural approach compared to the potentially dangerous alternative of medication that can mask an underlying problem.

Along with receiving my massage license from Lakeside School of Massage, I have completed many CEU workshops. Among those workshops, there were 4 areas that really caught my attention: Posturology (locating imbalances in the body to determine where the pain is coming from), Aromaology (the science of using essential oils), Deep-Tissue Therapy (focuses on releasing pain-causing trigger points in the body), and Myofascial Release (gently release your fascia for long term relief from pain).

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) since 2006, and have chosen to help people improve themselves even further. That’s why I have implemented yoga into my teachings. Yoga not only helps heal the mind, but along with massage therapy, it can improve your overall way of life.

Improving one’s self is a life-long journey. There is no quick-fix, just a steady balance. My goal is to continue to educate people on how to truly improve themselves inside and out through the power of massage and yoga.

Being happy and pain-free begins on the inside.

 

Here what some of Katie’s clients have to say!

“Sincere, truly believes in the benefits of yoga and shares her passion. The session at Tahoe Park was wonderful and the hour flew by. Looking forward to more sessions with her. Outdoor ones especially.” — Lori Berg Platt

 

“Katie did my first(and definitely not my last) MFR treatment on Saturday. I have had spinal issues since I was a child, scoliosis, Bertolotti syndrome, Sciatica.. you name it. I’ve always dealt with constant back pain to the point where I’ve needed to give up hobbies and some normal activities that any 20 year old should easily be able to do. When I told Katie that I had these issues, she told me that she had been doing a workshop activity that could potentially help with the pain. Being open to whatever I could possibly get my hands on, I agreed to her MFR treatment. I’m not saying it cured me, but since Saturday the pain that is usually about a 8 throughout my body decreased to a 4. I’m SO excited to continue with this treatment, and highly recommend it to ANYBODY. Thank you so much Katie! I’ll see you soon”. — Madi Hawkinson
