These soft-tissue treatments involve hands-on techniques. They can be utilized individually or in conjunction with other therapies.
ART is used for the treatment of repetitive strain injuries as well as to improve athletic performance. The goal of ART is to restore optimal tissue texture, tension, and movement. This is done by releasing soft tissue restrictions, entrapped nerves, and/or restricted circulatory or lymphatic structures, which in turn restores the strength, flexibility, and function of the soft tissue.
An FST session is performed on a massage table that has been equipped with comfortable straps to stabilize the parts of the body not being stretched. The client is dressed in athletic clothing and is moved through a series of stretching techniques. These movements help to identify and release myofascial restrictions as well as any joint and muscle tightness.
NKT is a sophisticated form of soft tissue therapy that applies muscle testing and motor control reprogramming. This is done by testing for weak or non functioning muscles and then using corrective exercises and myofascial release (such as foam rolling) to restore balance. For example, weak anterior neck muscles may be due to the brain not recognizing them after an injury. NKT helps the brain reprogram to once again recognize the anterior neck muscles thus restoring them to normal strength and function. To complete the reprogramming, specific rehab exercises are performed to solidify the new functional pattern.
Therapeutic massage helps release chronic patterns of tension in the body through regulated manual pressure across the fibers of muscles, tendons and fascia. For problem areas, a more targeted approach is taken by working on myofascial trigger points and adhesions. Manual pressure is applied at a therapeutic level.
PRO3 is a non-invasive, cordless vibration therapy tool used to quickly release pain, tension, and stiffness. The combination of short stroke and high frequency directs therapeutic doses of vibrational energy right on target and stays in contact with the skin, for comfortable, and effective therapy, all over the body.
Cupping is an alternative therapy that involves suctioning the skin with glass, plastic, or silicone cups. It may help improve blood flow, boost immune function, remove toxins, and reduce pain.
These treatments refer to a combination of movement approaches used to promote physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
PRI focuses on restoring balance to our asymmetrical bodies that have become poorly patterned and out of position over time. The program addresses biomechanical breakdowns and corrects muscle and joint compensations in order to provide clients with long-term pain relief. Passive and active movements are assessed while walking, standing, sitting and lying down. These measurements and assessments are then compared with normal ranges to determine a suitable corrective exercise repositioning/retraining routine. These progressive exercises will gently guide your body back into a more manageable and appropriate alignment. Exercises are regularly performed at home and progress is reassessed at each session to adapt as your body progresses.
The SFMA is our clinical assessment for those who experience pain. It is a movement based diagnostic system which systematically finds the cause of pain – not just the source – by logically breaking down dysfunctional movement patterns in a structured, repeatable assessment.
The use of RockTape soothes pain and increases athletic performance so you can get back to doing what you love.
Therapeutic Massage treats most musculo-skeletal and associated problems by improving circulatory, lymphatic, and neurological functioning.
Advanced Myofascial Release Technique facilitates the long-term release of chronically tight muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization facilitates the ability to locate restrictions and allows the treatment of the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure.
