What Clients can expect:

Lymph Drainage Therapy

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and organs that lie beneath the skin, and it’s a critical component of a healthy immune system. In fact, your lymphatic system acts almost like a garbage disposal, helping your body filter out waste and bacteria.

The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues and maintain a healthy immune system. This process can be hindered or stopped due to fatigue, stress, lack of activity, emotional shock, infections, swelling, age, or chemicals. Lymph Drainage Therapy activates lymph fluid circulation using precise rhythmic motions and stimulating the lymph nodes with a gentle pumping motion. This therapy is especially beneficial post surgery or injury to reduce swelling and accelerate healing. It has also proven to be very helpful for headaches, sinus conditions and edema (swelling). It is a powerful detoxifier and is excellent for boosting the immune system. Lymph Drainage Therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive therapy safe for most everyone.

Structural Integration Therapy

Structural Integration Therapy (a.k.a. Rolfikng) and Myofascial Therapy, address the Myofascial system; focusing on the relationships between the structure and function of the muscular (myo) and connective tissue (fascial) systems.

The Myofascial system is an endless web of connective tissue that surrounds the entire body, supporting and stabilizing muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, nerves and organs. It is like a body stocking that holds everything together. This web-like network gives the human structure its shape and form, and either allows or restricts efficient movement.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular massage therapy is a form of soft tissue massage that aims to alleviate chronic muscle and nervous system disorders and problems. It is mainly used to fix trigger points, circulation, nerve compression, postural problems and repetitive movement injuries. The aim of a neuromuscular massage is to go straight to the source of your pain and alleviate it.

Neuromuscular Therapy involves manual therapy techniques that balance the central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system.

 

Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Cupping therapy uses suction to release soft tissue and increase blood flow. Gliding the cups along the body can release fascia and muscle tension and adhesions. This will also help decrease inflammation and release toxins. Cupping is used in combination with other therapies.

Active Isolated Stretching

The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching is also known to work with the body’s natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.

Active Isolated Stretching works with the body’s natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase elasticity of muscle, joint, and connective tissue. In performing this technique, the client isolates muscles that are to be stretched by contracting the opposing muscles. Contracting a muscle on one side of a joint causes the muscle on the opposite side to relax which helps the muscle to stretch more efficiently.
