Therapeutic Massage provides an alternative health option for treating chronic pain syndromes, occupational and repetitive stress, muscular pain and spasm. It is effective in the treatment of muscular stiffness, sciatica, headaches, arthritis, associated discomforts of pregnancy, whiplash, tendonitis, sports injuries and more. Swedish Massage is rhythmical compression and releasing of soft tissues, using a variety of hands-on techniques to evoke a desired therapeutic effect. It can be both therapeutic and relaxing.
Therapeutic Ultrasound is an effective treatment for numerous conditions such as tendonitis, by helping to remove chronic and acute debris bi-products from the site of injury, stimulate healing, soften scars and adhered connective tissue to help restore range of motion.
Manual Therapy is based on Osteopathic principles, which uses assessment and gentle hands-on treatment to promote healthy functioning in the body by correcting mechanical imbalances and tensions in the muscles, bones, ligaments, organs, nervous system and fascia.
Manual Lymph Drainage massage focuses on improving the circulation of the lymphatic system (waste removal from the body). Stimulation of lymph flow is accomplished by lightly massaging the primary areas of swelling and congestion that encourage lymph fluid drainage and ensure the body’s cells receive adequate levels of oxygen.
Lymphatic drainage techniques reduce swelling and pain in the affected area and reduce the build-up of excess fibrin which leads to scar tissue formation.
Lymph drainage is an effective, painless treatment, which gives new basis to tissue health and healing.
