Manual Therapy

With over 20 years  experience in body therapy, rehabilitation and functional movement exercises we pull from many different modalities and styles to create a treatment that  best meet the clients needs. One of the main therapies used is Tuina which is one of the tools used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.


Tuina is primarily used to treat specific problems rather than just for relaxation.  Conditions treated include: sports injuries, work-physical and mental stress, frozen shoulder, sprains, neck and back pain, and much more.  Tuina is also successful in treating many types of internal problems including digestive, immune , respiratory, reproductive and circulatory disorders.
These treatment incorporate not only massage, but rehabilitation, exercise, herbs, acupuncture, cupping, heat therapy and dietary therapy. In the West, Tui Na is considered a style of Medical treatment which combines Osteopathy, Physiotherapy and Chiropractic styles of treatments.

 

Functional Movement

Combines postural assessment, exercises, stretches and a specialized style of acupuncture that utilizes a unique style of acupuncture needle and a variety of musculoskeletal diagnostic tools to identify and break up scar tissue adhesions and stop pain patterns. This is an effective treatment for both acute and chronic pain.
