Myofascial Release Massage

Myofascial release is the three-dimensional application of sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to eliminate fascial restrictions and facilitate the emergence of emotional patterns and belief systems that are no longer relevant or are impeding progress. First, an assessment is made by visually analyzing the human frame, followed by the palpation of the tissue texture of various fascial layers. Upon locating an area of fascial tension, gentle pressure is applied in the direction of the restriction. Myofascial release is an effective therapeutic approach in the relief of cervical pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological dysfunction, restriction of motion, chronic pain, and headaches.

Amanda Scecsei

I have been a massage therapist since 2005. In my massage, I use a mixture of various modalities including Swedish, Myofascial Release, Lomi Lomi and Foot Reflexology. 

Massage is a wonderful way to balance out the stress in our lives, which allows our nervous system to relax, our minds to let go, and our bodies to settle into the breath. Each person’s body has the innate intelligence to heal itself. A massage is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself.

Cecily Heath

To Cecily, massage is an artful expression that blends her passion for holistic living and her curiosity of the human body. She has been a Certified Massage Therapist since 2010, after graduating from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy. Her love for massage developed much earlier, however. Growing up with massage professionals in her family, she understood the benefits of massage early on and was drawn to the profession. 

Cecily has over 1000 hours of training and still counting. She has been trained in Zen Shiatsu, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Prenatal, and Trigger Point Therapy. Cecily’s technique creatively blends these modalities into one fluid and effective treatment. With a focus on promoting anatomical balance and engaging the parasympathetic nervous system, to encourage a sense of wholeness and well-being in her clients. 

Cecily encourages open communication to ensure that her client’s expectations are met, and often exceeded. At your appointment you can expect her to see you as a unique individual and to personalize the session to meet your specific needs and preferences. You can also expect her to actively listen to your insights about your body. With each session, her intention is to bring awareness to tension patterns and stagnant areas so that change can occur. It is her firm belief that when we are aware of what is happening within our bodies, we bring a greater sense of awareness into the world around us. 

Cecily looks forward to working with you to create greater balance and well-being in your body and your life
