Soft Tissue Release

Soft Tissue Release has the same physiological benefits as traditional massage, however, it is less time consuming and uses only minimal discomfort. The benefits of STR not only include the latter, but also increase venous and lymphatic drainage, increase fluid absorption, mobilization of adhesions, and aids in the breaking of scar tissue, thus helping to improve tissue flexibility, increase range of motion and decrease healing time. (Sanderson, 2002) The STR process and treatment actively involves the client, therefore giving each client a sense of accomplishment and overall well-being when treatment is complete.
