Comprehensive Manual Therapy is a sophisticated, holistic, hands-on method of treatment in which the main objective is to find and correct the primary cause of dysfunction to allow the inherent healing mechanisms of the client to manifest. The client is approached as a functional unity, the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. The state of the client at the time of treatment is taken into account in order to facilitate the best rapport between the client and practioner so that a therapeutic dialogue can be created. The practitioner engages the client through this "dialogue with the tissues" in order to direct the client's inherent biodynamic force to restore relationships among anatomical and physiological systems and enable the person to optimally access their inherent ability to self-heal and self-regulate. This work, based on osteopathy, addresses the many systems of the human being, such as the Cranio-sacral system, the nervous system, the visceral and organ systems, and the muscular, fascial and articular realities of the body, then it integrates those systems into the greater whole to increase function. more >>
Hendrickson Method of Orthopedic Massage and Manual Therapy is an advanced system of orthopedic therapy that brings together a dynamic combination of massage, mobilization, and neuromuscular re-education synthesized with Eastern energy practices. Clients receive a soothing session that provides pain relief and functional rehabilitation. Precise and extremely effective, the Hendrickson Method is a suitable therapy for most orthopedic conditions including low back pain, whiplash, and rotator cuff injuries. This exceptional system of functional rehabilitation uses techniques that stimulate the synthesis of new cells, re-hydrates cartilage, and realigns soft tissue. At its core is a one-of-a-kind stroke called wave mobilization®, so named because its gentle rocking motion mimics ocean waves. more>>
Integrative Massage draws from a multitude of therapeutic modalities based on the specific needs of the individual. Swedish massage is used to relax and restore circulation to muscles and nerves. Deep tissue manipulation breaks up adhesions in muscle and fascia, which allows the skeletal system to realign itself. Myofasical techniques release the entire system of connective tissue or fascia and Energetic work is used to restore balance between the emotional body, Chakra system, and endocrine centers. An Integrative Massage allows the client to stay deeply relaxed and journey inward to experience a whole body release.
Post-Natal Massage - This massage is designed to focus on restoration of balance in the body by working with muscles after pregnancy as they readjust to previous positions. Massage helps decrease soreness and promote healing as well as lessen the physical and structural stress of carrying and caring for a newborn child. In addition, a massage post-pregnancy will calm the nervous system and provide much needed rest and relaxation.
Therapeutic Massage is an advanced form massage therapy that simultaneously treats the soft-tissues of the body, the joints and the nervous system. A therapist who performs therapeutic massage focuses on addressing imbalances within the client's musculoskeletal system and may integrate a wide range of hands on techniques such as deep tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, passive stretching and neuromuscular reeducation. An therapeutic massage therapist will release tight tissues, help to stretch shortened muscles and tendons and decompress joints. The goal is to normalize the soft tissues of the body, both to address specific complaints and to keep clients generally healthy and fit. Treatment can result in better healing, a reduction in injuries and the enhancement of flexibility and athletic performance. Because therapeutic massage is designed to treat medical conditions, its practice requires extensive training by a skilled therapist.
