Massage Santa Barbara

Massage Santa Barbara

Why visit a massage factory in SB where you might not get a great massage and have a bad experience. Why get stuck with a monthly membership you don’t want or never use! Why deal with rude spa managers who just want to sign you up for a membership so that they can make a bonus.

Visit PRO massage in a nice quiet, quaint neighborhood, tucked away on the west side of Santa Barbara.  My studio is full of art and I hope you like cats because I have three.

Myofascial Release in Santa Barbara, Goleta

Myofascial Release in Santa Barbara, Goleta

Myofascial describes a symptom or treatment that relates to the connective tissue of the muscles — the fasciae — and the muscles themselves. Practitioners treat myofascial pain using myofascial release, physical manipulation aimed at relaxing the muscles and fasciae. Many events can cause myofascial pain, including physical strain, surgery, and inflammatory conditions that tighten the muscles. Often, people feel the pain from these knot-like constrictions at a different point in the body than the specific problem area. The release of these origins or “trigger points” can alleviate pain.
