DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE – Jennifer Bjornstad, LMT


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. People see massage therapy for a variety of reasons to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellness.

In my deep tissue massage session I combine several modalities of massage to give you a specialized session.  I usually combine Deep Tissue, Swedish Massage, Trigger Point, Cranial-Sacral, and Energy Work massage techniques to give you a massage that is unique to you.

FasciaBlasting Session – Jennifer Bjornstad, LMT




FasciaBlasting will be added soon!

It is a popular method that involves using a specialized tool called the FasciaBlaster to target and manipulate the fascia in the body. Fascia refers to the connective tissue that surrounds and supports muscles, bones, and organs. The FasciaBlaster is designed to apply controlled pressure to the fascia, helping to break up adhesions, release tension, and potentially improve the appearance and function of the tissue. This technique has gained attention for its potential benefits in reducing the appearance of cellulite, increasing circulation, and promoting overall well-being. It is important to note that results and experiences may vary, and it is recommended to consult with a qualified professional before embarking on any self-treatment regimen.  (Please see below for more information)

Questions & Answers


1.  Who should NOT have this technique done?

There are certain groups of people who should exercise caution or avoid this technique. It is generally recommended that individuals with certain health conditions, such as uncontrolled high blood pressure, blood clotting disorders, active cancer, open wounds or infections, or those who are pregnant or have recently undergone surgery, should not undergo FasciaBlasting without consulting their healthcare provider. Additionally, individuals with a history of deep vein thrombosis or varicose veins should approach this technique with caution. It is always best to consult with a qualified healthcare professional who can evaluate your specific circumstances and advise whether FasciaBlasting is suitable for you.

2.  What should I wear for the FasciaBlasting session?

FasciaBlasting needs to be done on direct skin contact with the area being treated to ensure proper use and effectiveness of the FasciaBlaster. Therefore, wearing clothing that allows for exposure of the targeted body part(s) is ideal. For example, you might choose to wear booty shorts, a sports bra, tube top, tank top, or bakini to access areas like legs, abdomen, or arms.

3.  Should a person expect brusing after fascia blasting?

Yes, it is possible to experience bruising after FasciaBlasting. The level of bruising can vary depending on factors such as the intensity of the technique, the sensitivity of the individual’s skin, and the condition of their fascia. FasciaBlasting involves applying pressure to the fascia using specialized tools, which can sometimes cause microtraumas to the blood vessels beneath the skin, resulting in bruising. However, it’s important to note that not everyone will experience bruising, and the severity and duration of bruising can vary from person to person. Some individuals may only experience mild discoloration or none at all. If bruising does occur, it typically fades over time as the body’s natural healing process takes place. It’s recommended to start with lighter pressure and gradually increase intensity to minimize the likelihood of bruising. If you have concerns about bruising or any other aspect of FasciaBlasting, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or an experienced practitioner for personalized guidance.

4.  How many sessions should a person do and frequency of session to see results?


The number of sessions and frequency of FasciaBlasting can vary depending on individual goals, preferences, and response to the technique. It is suggested to come approximately once a week for 6 to 8 weeks to start seeing results.  However, if you are doing FasciaBlasting at home in between sessions you can space out the FasciaBlasting sessions.

In terms of seeing results, it is important to note that everyone’s body is unique, and the time it takes to observe changes can vary. Some individuals may notice improvements in the appearance of their skin, reduction in the appearance of cellulite, or increased flexibility and mobility after a few weeks of consistent FasciaBlasting. However, it may take longer for others to see noticeable changes.

It’s worth mentioning that results can be influenced by factors such as overall health, lifestyle, diet, and genetic predispositions. Additionally, combining FasciaBlasting with other healthy habits, such as regular exercise and a balanced diet, may help maximize results. If you are uncertain about the optimal number of sessions and frequency for your specific goals, it is recommended to consult with a knowledgeable professional who can provide personalized guidance and recommendations based on your individual needs.

5.  How does a heat lamp with red light help the body? (A heat lamp with red light will be used during your session)

A heat lamp with red light, also known as red light therapy or photobiomodulation, is believed to provide several benefits to the body. Red light therapy utilizes specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light to penetrate the skin and interact with cells. Here are some ways in which a heat lamp with red light can potentially help the body:

  • Skin health: Red light therapy is thought to stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of skin by reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and promoting a more youthful complexion. It may also help with the healing of wounds, scars, and acne.
  • Pain management: Red light therapy has been suggested to have analgesic properties, potentially reducing pain and inflammation in the body. It is often used to manage muscle and joint pain, such as arthritis, back pain, or sports injuries.
  • Improved circulation: Red light therapy may help improve blood circulation by promoting the formation of new capillaries. This can support the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues, aiding in the healing process and overall well-being.
  • Mood and sleep: Some studies suggest that red light therapy may have positive effects on mood and sleep patterns. It can potentially help regulate circadian rhythms and improve melatonin production, which is crucial for a healthy sleep-wake cycle.
  • Cellular function: Red light therapy is believed to stimulate mitochondria within cells, enhancing their energy production and promoting cellular function. This may lead to various systemic benefits throughout the body.
