Speaker | Aaron Johnson with Saskatoon Therapeutic Massage Centre

Aaron has been married for seven years now and grew up in the Asquith area. Aaron played ball and rugby where he developed back problems and can attest to the benefits of therapeutic massage. By divine intervention and a dislike for manual labor Aaron became a Registered Massage Therapist. Aaron has been trained in therapeutic massage by John Barnes who has practiced these techniques since 1950.

Myofascial Release is a safe and gentle technique that applies sustained pressure to eliminate pain, headaches and restore motion. People who have experienced similar techniques have expressed that it hurt or that there was too much pressure applied, which is not always effective.

Fascia is tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body. The tissue is a single densely woven covering similar to that of a sweater. It is relaxed and has the ability to stretch. When people experience trauma the fascia loses its flexibility and becomes tight which then provides a source of tension on the body. The fascial system has tensile properties capable of withstanding 2000lbs per square inch.

When a person undergoes physical and emotional distress dehydration of the fascia occurs, water is pushed out of the tissue and becomes less flexible and knotted. When applying myofascial work the therapist works on increasing the electrical potential which attracts water molecules thus rehydrating. This is not something that can be cured in one visit however over time many people attest to the benefits of lesser pain or no pain at all. This is something that everyone can learn to do at home and it is encouraged to use it as a means of preventive measures to keep your body healthy. Aaron and everyone at Saskatoon Therapeutic Massage can help with a variety of issues such as neck and back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, disc problems females problems and even chronic fatigue syndrome. Aaron encourages everyone to give it a try. Sessions last for 1 hour the first visit will start with a brief assessment followed by hands on work.
