Sports Bodywork is becoming widely recognized as important for both the professional and the non professional athlete. At Zen Muscular Therapy, our Myofascial Sport Bodywork treatment focuses on the facial tissue or connective tissue which covers every muscle in the body and every fiber within each muscle. This is an intense treatment that is highly effective for relief of chronic pain, structural balance, pre and post event work, as well as injury prevention. In order to achieve the maximum benefits of this treatment, it is suggested that the client follow a ten (10) session process where the therapist will focus on different goals in each session. Your therapist will work with you to determine the best course of treatment based on your individual needs.
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural lymph flow in the body.

Our signature Zen MLD treatment combines manual lymph drainage massage with dry brushing and detoxifying essential oils.

By creating suction and negative pressure, Massage Cupping™ therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids by opening lymphatic pathways. This treatment not only helps with healing, it feels GREAT! It wakes the body up and makes it feel invigorated, at the same time producing a profound level of healing through nervous system sedation. It stimulates the skin by increasing circulation while separating fused tissue layers and draining lymph to promote a smooth appearance and healthy glow. It works deeper by loosening adhesions, facilitating the muscles to operate more independently and stimulating healthy elimination of accumulated debris in the tissues, organs and systems.

This is an ancient eastern form of healing that is often referred to as "lazy man's yoga" because of its similarities to the practice of yoga. It is practiced on the floor wearing loose fitting clothing to allow for optimal mobility. The practitioner uses both hands and feet to guide the client's body into different stretches, always remaining within the client’s comfort level. The practitioner then applies pressure along different points on the muscles to help decrease tension and increase flexibility. Thai massage is beneficial for a variety of clients ranging from athletes who are looking to increase their flexibility and decrease the tension in their muscles, to clients who suffer from chronic stiffness and limited mobility. Please wear loose comfortable clothing.

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands and feet that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body. Although Reflexology does not diagnose or treat specific ailments by definition, it has proven highly successful over time to relieve symptoms or ease pain or discomfort that have manifested themselves physically in the body - either as a result of stress, trauma or disease.
Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) is a form of gentle touch energy healing. It works by releasing cellular memories, which are suppressed traumas, emotions, fears, and limiting beliefs that are stored in the tissues of your body. Cellular memories block energy flow, thus affecting your physical and emotional health as well as your energy level. IET is able to release deeper or more difficult blocks that Reiki alone cannot. During an IET session, each area of the body where cellular memories are stored will be lightly touched to release the block and replace it with healing energy. Here are just a few examples of the wonderful benefits of this treatment:
• Distrust is replaced with Trust
• Heartache & Betrayal are replaced with Love
• Anger & Resentment are replaced with Forgiveness
• Stress & Powerlessness are replaced with Ease
• Fear is replaced with Safety.
