Rapid Release - Soft Tissue Therapy.. aka "Helga"
What does soft tissue therapy do?
Soft tissue therapy helps to gently break up scar tissue that can form in the body. This scar tissue forms from daily stressors on the body, surgery, and other traumas. This scar tissue can form adhesions that can cause even deeper problems. These adhesions can affect nerves, limit the range of motion, and cause numbness and pain. Soft tissue therapy can break down these adhesions and reverse these negative affects.
