What is Neu Release?
Neu Release is an integrated approach of Massage and Stretching for deeper alignment of body and nervous system.
- Modern approach Applying the principles of pain science and sports massage, we release trigger points and myofascial tension.
- Ancient tools Combining techniques from ancient massage modalities, like Thai massage, Ashiatsu and Fijian massage, we can provide deeper pressure.
- Goal Oriented Let go of soreness and pain, neurological tension, and release into the presence of your body
connecting modern understanding with ancient healing arts
Release physical limitations and unlock healthy new patterns of movement and feeling through our deep understanding of the body, nervous system, and the transformative power of aligning dynamic channels of body, energy, and presence.
Understanding the Mechanics
Our Signature Method
Neu Release combines the science of sports medicine, advanced deep tissue, and the flow of a yoga stretching sequence. This systematic approach is far more effective than massage alone.
Trigger Point and Myofascial Release
We use massage to find trigger points and adhesions, commonly referred to as “knots”. Slow and deep massage compressions warm and release these tender painful points. Similar to a chiropractor or physical therapist, we release trigger points head-on through targeted pressure and active release techniques.
Unlike conventional massage, we don’t slide over the issue. With a full bodied approach, a Neu Release therapist is always capable of giving as much pressure as desired. Releasing these knots with deep pressure can be intense — but afterwards, they feel light, open, and refreshed with new circulation.
Progressively, passive stretching (where we stretch you, while you relax) helps to release the surrounding tightness. Using techniques from Thai yoga massage, we help you open and relax into stretches, designed for your body and needs. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be flexible. Integrated stretching and joint traction open up deeper tissue, otherwise completely inaccessible through massage alone.
Neu Release, through combined sports massage and stretching, powerfully warms and reforms muscles — boosting circulation and recovery. Guided by the wisdom of pain science, ancient healing arts, and integrated yoga therapy, Neu Release is the modern approach for myofascial and nervous tension.
Our dynamic flow style connects you with every layer of your own being. After a Neu Release, our receivers float away feeling taller, with greater length through the spine, more open, integrated with body, and deeply released into the present.
Connecting the Myofascial and Nervous Systems
Fascia and Neu Release
The fascial system is a web of connective tissue that covers and penetrates every muscle, bone, blood vessel, and organ in the body. This network of tissue provides support and protection for the body’s structures and helps to distribute load evenly throughout the body.
Our lifestyles often involve repeating the same movements day after day, which can lead to fascial tension patterns, where the connective tissue, becomes tight around muscles, tendons, and joints. Overtime fascial tensions restricts mobility and causing aches and pains. Our first goal in Neu Release is to release Fascial adhesions, releasing the connected imbalance in muscles and joints. Lengthening tissue, we release the fascial tension patterns to open the space within.
Neu Approach: Massage + Stretching
Massage techniques melt adhered fascia. Deep tissue massage and Sports massage can help by targeting deep holding in muscles and sticky tension between layers of tissues. Myofascial release, deep compressions, and methodical release of connected tension patterns to create dynamic change in tissue structure.
Assisted stretching, also called stretch therapy, is a type of stretching that is performed with the help of another person. Stretch therapy is often used by sports massage therapists, chiropractors, and physical therapists to help patients recover from injuries and relieve pain. Stretch techniques are essential in any modern approach to fascial and nervous tension, boosting full health and well-being.
In Neu Release, we use assisted stretching to promote deeper release of both the body and mind. When tissues grow short from muscular tension or postural disintegrity, there is a loss of balance and alignment. Our stretch cycles help to release muscles and tendons, while also spreading open inter-webbed, sticky layers of connective tissue. Expanding your range of motion, we reduce tension and boost circulation.
Neurological opening with Neu Release
Opening the fascial patterns, there is a natural ease in release into the present. Balanced in our being, the body is weightless and free of tension. Fascial release opens the door, relaxing both the myofascial and the nervous systems. Led into release, the nervous systems enters the parasympathetic response, where healing naturally occurs.
Targeting every myo-fascial and nervous layer through our methodical flow, Neu Release works from the surface to the core. There is space for change on physical and mental levels. Neu Release is a full experience of integration, letting go into body, mind, and connection. Within the balanced space of tension and release, the full being discovers alignment.

OUR PLACE IN
THE EVOLUTION OF MASSAGE
Thai Massage and Barefoot healing
Over 2,500 years ago, Thai Massage and various barefoot massage styles — Ashiatsu & Fijian — were created to take care of warriors, the modern athlete, and as part of the spiritual and physical practices of yoga. Using the Giver’s full body, including hands, elbows, knees, and feet, these massage modalities offer deeper pressure for effective relief.
Thai Yogis developed the system of Thai massage. Their goal was connecting Giver and Receiver in aligned and empowered stretches and compressions.
Following the sen lines of the body, Thai Yogis massaged and pulled out muscular tension, to free the receiver from pain and bring their focus back to the practice of mindfulness.
Modern pain science discovered the structure of pain, living within the network of the myofascial system. Myofascial release, Structural Integration, Trigger Point release, Active Release, and Assisted / Resisted Stretching are all targeted to combat pain at the source. Chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage integrate these tools to scientifically work through fascial layers.
As Pain Science develops, we better understand the true cause of pain – behind the myofascial network – is the nervous system. Modern approaches value balancing locomotion, integrating postural changes. and nervous system regulation. This new understanding treats the root of tension and discomfort.
Neu Release Movement
Neu Release lies in the Radiant Connection of history and modern approaches. This is a new System of Alignment, bridging the gap between pain science and healing arts.
Empowered with the deep tissue tools of ancient healing arts and the systematic approach to pain science, we gradually melt through layers of tension and holding, finding the space to make change.
We unlock physical limitations and release healthy patterns of movement and feeling through our deep understanding of the body, the nervous system, and the transformative power of aligning dynamic channels of body, energy, and presence.
