Alyssa is trained in Myofascial Release. Various techniques are used to treat the fascial system. Fascia is a complex system that surrounds all structures of the body. Adhesions within the fascial structure can cause discomfort in different areas of the body. Alyssa incorporates myofascial release in all of her treatment.
Alyssa uses Cupping as a tool for Myofascial Release. Plastic or silicone cups with suction are used to break up superficial fascial adhesions and promote local circulation. She often will use cupping as a secondary tool to her manual techniques. You may be left with some temporary discoloration to the skin.
