Benefits of Myofascial Release
Do you know what is in common between poor circulation, chronic muscle pain, muscle cramps, numbness, tingling, headaches, and reduced range of motion? All of these conditions and many others can be caused by a tight restricted fascia.
Fascia is a continuous layer of strong flexible tissue connecting all our muscles and most other organs. Under the skin fascia envelops our body like a stocking, varying in thickness from few millimeters to several centimetres. It shapes soft tissues, helps to retain heat, acts as a shock absorber, fights infection and has many other functions. Fascia also transmits tension between adjacent muscles and even between muscles in different parts of your body.
Sometimes because of our sedentary lifestyle, lack of stretching and the deficit of water in our tissues, fascia can shorten, becoming tight, and pull our muscles and joints out of balance, pinching nerves and restricting circulation. This could lead to a variety of painful and irritating health conditions.
Fortunately we at Breathe Spa are here to help you. We incorporate myofascial (muscular-fascial) release into our treatments and make you feel better.
Among other benefits, myofascial release will help to:
- relieve chronic muscle pain
- decrease incidents of muscle cramps
- relieve some forms of headaches
- relieve numbness and tingling
- improve circulation
- increase the range of motion
- reduce the feeling of tightness and congestion.

Benefits of Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Lymph is a clear whitish liquid, which flows through our bodies, supporting the immune system, maintaining protein circulation and removing metabolic waste. Like blood through the blood vessels, lymph flows through the lymph vessels, passing through lymph nodes, which act like filters. The lymphatic system acts as the sanitation department of our body. Unlike blood, which flows in a circuit and has a heart pump to keep it moving, lymph flows in one direction and needs external forces to push it forward. These outside forces are contractions of adjacent muscles, pulsations of large arteries, and breathing. Although nature provided these mechanisms for the flow of lymph, they are often insufficient, especially when we have a swelling somewhere in our body caused by injury, surgery, or infection. And here is where your massage therapist comes in. Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a calming and gentle rhythmic massage, which makes your lymphatic system work more efficiently. Among other benefits, lymphatic drainage will help to: 1. clear congestive conditions, such as sinusitis or bronchitis2. decrease stress and prevent insomnia3. relieve some forms of headaches4. decrease the swelling from injury or surgery5. speed up the recovery time post-surgery6. relieve fluid retention during pregnancy7. reduce puffiness and improve the appearance of your skin.

Lomi Lomi Massage
Huna Kane (pronounced ‘hoonah kahnay’), the “Inner Knowing of the Higher Self”, is grounded in ancient Hawaiian Huna wisdom. It is a preventative, restorative profoundly powerful body massage that assists in physical and emotional healing. Getting a massage and a counselling session at the same time.
This ancient healing process allows an individual to clear emotional baggage while receiving the benefits of massage. Because all life is energy, any disruptions to energy flow can result in pain or discomfort, be it physical or emotional. Negative thoughts and emotional trauma, when repressed, cause body pain, burnout and disease. This can then be addressed and healed to increase flexibility, enjoyment and energy. Huna Kane allows for the release of physical and emotional pain while receiving personal wisdom from the experience.
The Huna Kane practitioner, while massaging the body, speaks to the client’s unconscious mind and invites the client to release limiting beliefs. The massage feels like a gentle rocking while spirals of energy move into the client’s body, breaking up painful patterns in the muscles, detoxifying the body and activating the body’s immune system while the person breathes deeply. As the body clears, new concepts are offered to the client as a more appropriate way for the body to feel. These suggestions help establish rapport between the mind and heart. The client can now resolve specific issues passively, in the privacy of their own mind as they receive the session.This ultimately, creates more balance, peace and harmony in body, mind and spirit.
Sandra Michael has developed a Body Map©, which shows just where specific emotions are held in the body. Using the map as a guide, the practitioner creates a dialogue that is designed to address emotional issues, and suggests that the body might like to feel a different way. For example, control issues are generally held in the shoulder area. During the massage of the shoulder area, the practitioner would invite the client to release the issue of control being held in the body and replace it with an ability to go with the flow. This is how the limiting beliefs are addressed and the client is able to make changes in life. New feelings based on love for self and others enable the client to begin to relax and detoxify the body. All the while, the client is breathing using the Ha breath, in through the nose and out through the mouth with a Ha or a sigh. On a physical level, this oxygenates the body. On an emotional level, the client is encouraged to imagine the out-breath sending back to God, Creator, the Source of All That Is, all those things that are no longer needed and no longer serving a useful purpose in the life. Having released that, the void created by the release can now be filled with the healing, loving light that comes from that same Higher Power.
A Huna Kane practitioner is highly skilled in the art of the profession. Huna Kane itself is more a way of living and being than a technique. Practitioners study not only the techniques of massage, but also develop the intuition in order to give the client that which is needed. The intention is to be ‘present with love’ for the client. Practitioners adhere to the Principles of Hawaiian Huna Kane, which can be simply stated as, “Think and act with love always.”
