INTEGRATION

TECHNIQUE (LFIT)

  • The Lotus Touch Release techniques and processes have been developed over 27 years, specifically for professional and Olympic athletes and the injured public

  • žAn innovative technique created and developed by GRACE KIM RMT

  • žUnique combination of techniques and processes from Western and Asian massage practices and is specific to the ENTIRE body

  • žIncreases range of motion, strength and rate of rehabilitation at a very efficient and fast rate

  • žConcentrates on releasing fascia that surround muscle which is a major cause of injury and pain in athletes and injured public

  • žUtilizes a series of pre and post tests and methodologies to discover issues in the body and resolves them quickly and effectively

  • It releases each layer of the body including the skin, fascia, muscles, tissues, joints and ligaments by using a variety of techniques, processes and methods from both Western and Asian massage styles

  • The basic root of the technique is to think of the body as a lotus flower, There are many layers to the flower as well as the body.  The body work is done layer by layer encompassing all the superficial, mid and deep levels

  • The analogy of the flower is that when the lotus flower is developing, it begins in murky, muddy waters.  Once bloomed, the flower is perfect and very beautiful 

  • Grace works within your pain threshold, and communication with your RMT is essential in order to have a comfortable and effective session. 

WHAT CAN LFIT DO FOR YOU?

 

  • žReduce the amount of stress, myofascial restrictions, muscle tonicity and pain in the whole body

  • žIncrease range of motion in all joints, strength in major muscles of the body through muscle alignment and muscle memory

  • žSpeed up recovery from injuries and regaining the strength and ability efficiently and effectively

  • žImprove performance, flexibility, agility and stamina

  • žIncrease immune response, blood and lymph flow, slow heart rate and respiration and relaxation

  • žDecrease the amount of injuries because of relaxed Fascia and proper muscle alignment and consistent and continuing treatments

Not only has this technique been used on athletes but on injured general public. žThere is a common denominator with most individuals treated with this technique and that is that they are able to feel the results immediately and long-term pain relief. žOur technique focuses on myofascial work, trigger points, range of motion and muscle alignment.  Based on our theory and our results, these are the main areas of focus for relieving whole body pain and injuries in general. žFor improving performance, this technique works best for athletes when full assessment and alignment is given before, during and after their events (pre and post testing on our athletes) This is in 15 min increments. žTreatment is usually 60 minutes done once a week for about 4-8 weeks depending on the level of injury.

 

žThis release helps to relieve pain and improve postural alignment. Combined with strengthening exercises of the opposing muscle groups, myofascial release is an excellent technique to gain mobility, flexibility and pain relief. žAthletes commonly suffer from functional pain or restrictions in flexibility due to scar tissue or adhesion build-up in the muscle and fascia from excess lactic acid. This is usually caused from strains to the muscles.  One function of Myofascial Release is to help stretch the fascia to allow more motion of the muscle therefore increasing the Range of Motion of the body.

 

žTreatment of this type of pain has no real plan like the treatment of an acute injury has. This pain begins in the fascia and the muscle. This causes restrictions in Range of Motion and causes pain. If this is untreated, Myofascial Trigger Points can then develop.
