Life May Take It Out of You but We Can Put it Back
As health care providers we feel that it is important to promote health, prevent illness and encourage clients to participate in their own health care while helping them attain the highest level of wellness possible using the various techniques we offer. Techniques available are:
Acupuncture is a method used to alleviate pain and promote healing through the balancing of the body's internal energy flow, Qi. A therapeutic massage treatment aims to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical functioning, as well as relieve or prevent physical dysfunction and pain.
Acupuncture is used to facilitate healing through the reduction or elimination of pain. It involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin at specific points in the body. Needles are left in from a few minutes to 1/2 hour.
Acupuncture needles are barely felt upon insertion due to their fineness. When the needle reaches the required depth you may feel a slight dull ache or tingling sensation as it touches the Qi, the internal energy channel. This sensation only lasts for a second. During the rest of the treatment you should not feel any of the needles unless advised otherwise.
The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cords. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum, or tailbone area.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle method of detection and correction that encourages your own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate these negative effects of stress on your central nervous system.
The use of very slow and low grade movements of bones to increase movement of a joint and reduce pain. Joint play technique is a form of passive movement in which an intermittent stretch is applied to the portion of the joint capsule to be mobilized. The slack is taken out of the joint capsule , and the appropriate specific movement is performed. The technique is applied slowly and rhythmically to allow the connective tissue time to respond. This also allows new information to reach the joint proprioceptors, which in turn decreases the tone of muscles crossing the affected joint.
We encounter life situations every day that threaten to upset our balance. This imbalance can evolve into aches and pains which if left untreated may result in physiological dysfunction. Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) can help with that. The St. John method of NMT, is a comprehensive program of soft tissue manipulation techniques that balance the central nervous system with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system. It is based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system maintains homeostatic balance. Accordingly, these same laws dictate how the central nervous system initiates pain responses.
In NMT we use the theory of Arndt's Law. Arndt's Law represents that at homeostasis(balance,) nerves transmit impulses very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion, or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmissions, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. It is necessary to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain homeostasis and thus over all health.
Postural distortion is an imbalance of the muscular system resulting from movement of the body off the coronal(front to back-bent over), midsagittal(right to left-bent sideways) and horizontal(top to bottom- twisted) planes. Gravitational force is constantly pulling the body toward Earth. If there is an imbalance in the structural system, gravity causes the body to compensate in an effort to retain balance. Some muscles contract and shorten while others lengthen in an effort to hold the body upright as a result of the "righting reflexes". These reflexes respond to messages from the inner ear, eyes, muscles or skin to bring the body into equilibrium, which helps keep us from getting dizzy.
When the body is aligned on all 3 planes, the tone of both somatic(body covering) and visceral(internal organ) tissues improve. As tone is normalized, the nervous system is balanced.
Treats the fascia of the body as a whole. Fascia is the connective tissue which binds all the structures of the body in place, allowing for optimal functioning of the body. It is the least understood and the most untreated soft tissue of the body. Fascia is like a table cloth; if it is pulled or stuck the corner on the other side of the table is affected too. If the fascia cannot freely glide over the muscular system ,congestion and distortion can result.
Remedial exercises are used during treatment or for self -care. They are designed to address imbalance with counterbalance movements, which will then over a period of time return the muscles to their balanced state. This could include range of motion exercises, stretches and/or strengthening.
Stretching is used to lengthen soft tissue. There are many types of stretching of which I recommend two. The first is static passive/relaxed stretching, where you slowly go into a stretching position to the 1st point of feeling the tension and then hold it in pain free position while deep breathing until you feel a release, 1-5 minutes. The other type is post isometric stretching, where you start as above then once you feel the 1st point of tension you resistance/contract the muscle against a minimal force for 5- 10 seconds and after fully relaxing, you move into the next area of tension and repeat 3-5 times, pain free.
Structural distortions can work their way up the postural chain and the abnormal pull of various muscles in the neck, shoulder and spine can affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Abnormal occlusion can inversely cause tension in the neck and shoulders, as well as cause distortions in the cranium that can lead to scoliotic patterns. The hinged joint of the TMJ is controlled by muscles. Dysfunction of these muscles can cause pain, clicking, headaches and limited jaw opening. Clenching and grinding of the jaw can cause stress in the TMJ.
Trigger points occur when nerves fire impulses at a rapid speed into an area of the body other than that which has been traumatized. Because of trigger points, the cause of serious pain may often be far removed from the actual site of pain. This in turn, inhibits proper blood flow, which causes ischemia and often leads to more pain and discomfort. Trigger Point Therapy eases the tender points in muscles with a form of accupressure. In my t treatment I apply pressure for 8- 12 seconds, pausing then reapplying pressure to promote a therapeutic response of interrupting the physiopathological reflex circuits which will not be seen as an intrusion.
Learn the inter-relationship between form (anatomy) and function (physiology), and how the forces of tilt, rotation, flexion, extension and projection exert their force on organs, altering their position in the body and how they perform life-sustaining functions. I have learned how to locate and massage organs in order to decrease the neurological activity of the viscera and restore the body to homeostasis. It will become obvious how visceral somatic reflexes contribute to herniated discs, headaches, back pain, and distorted breathing patterns.
We are committed to continuous improvement in the implementation of massage therapy standards and acupuncture practices.
The clinic provides an atmosphere of compassion and confidentiality and is free of discrimination. Respectful and responsible touch is administered to promote healing and well-being.
Different patients have different pressure tolerances. If you feel too much discomfort during a specific treatment be sure to inform your therapist. No treatment should reflect a "grin and bear it" attitude.
