Therapy on the Rocks is nestled in the Red Rock Cliffs of an Ancient Avalanche. The flowing waters of Oak Creek Canyon create a tranquil oasis of powerful healing energy. Enjoy the magnificent Sedona/Oak Creek setting from the creek side whirlpool, redwood sunning/treatment decks and cozy treatment rooms overlooking a fifty foot waterfall cascading down into beautiful Oak Creek.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
People are referred from all over the world to us when traditional therapy, medication or surgery has failed to produce the desired results. Therapy on the Rocks is dedicated to the comprehensive delivery of the highest quality utilizing a multifaceted, multidisciplinary approach for lasting results.
