Ancient Methods Combined with Revolutionary Modalities Abolish Pain

Soft Tissue Mobilization and Myofascial Release are specialized mobilization procedures of the muscles, connective tissue, ligaments and tendons. This approach helps to release tight, scarred tissue, relax muscles, improve movement and facilitate circulation. Mobilization is often combined with movement to augment the freeing and stimulating effect. The therapist will locate areas of restriction through skilled layer-by-layer assessment, searching for restrictions that impair motion and cause pain. Patients rave about how great they feel after just one session.
Joint Mobilization involves the therapist carefully moving the joints in a way that you cannot move yourself. Skilled and gradd forces are applied in a precisely effective direction only after the joint is positioned appropriately to maximize pain relief, increase motion and relax tight muscles. Range of motion can be restored rapidly.
Feldenkrais Functional Integration uses skillful, supportive touch as the practitioner slowly and gently guides the body into improved ways of moving. The practioner can detect habitual holding, tension or restriction and simultaneously facilitate a release of the restriction and help you find freedom in your joints and muscles. Improved coordination, flexibility and balance, as well as relief from chronic pain, stress and anxiety are experienced.
Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle method of enhancing health by releasing restrictions in that it improvides the functioning of the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used to bolster resistance to disease and correct back pain ailment and dysfunction.
Massage and Shiatsu are the ultimate in relaxation and an antidote for stress. It is a healing art and a science. Massage promotes healing, boosts the immune system, increases energy and improves your outlook on life. Massage has helped rejuvenate people for centuries.

Studies have shown that a combination of hands-on physical therapy and exercise is effective for relieving back pain.

Therapeutic Prescriptive Exercise involves the process of the therapist selecting specific exercises based on your problem and individual needs. Patients recover more quickly and more thoroughly when a therapist takes the time to develop and individual program as opposed to a routine protocol. The focus is on you and your improvement.
Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement verbally leads students through various sophisticated, sage and simple movement sequences intended to develop a greater awareness of how you move. As a result one learns to abandon habitual destructive movement patterns and learn to move with freedom and comfort, thus eliminating much pain and stress.
Yoga and Pilates with the Balance Body Apparatus are popular exercises disciplines to help you gain strength, balance, control and coordination. We have exercise levels for everybody. It is energizing and invigorating!!!

These modalities are so powerful they require a prescription from a physician and can only be administered by licensed clinicians. Rich Mar VI-HV Electric Stimulation is used to aid in the re-education of muscles after injury, disuse or prolonged muscle spasm. Application to weak muscles can help regain control of those muscles. Electric stimulation modulates the sensation of low back pain by overriding the painful signals that are sent to the brain.
Iontophoresis is a painless means of delivering medicine through the skin via a low intensity current. The medicine migrates under the skin producing an anti-inflammatory effect in the general area of pain. This modality is especially effective in relieving acure episodes of pain. Pain relief can occur withing twenty minutes after the treatment session.
Rich Mar VI Hot Ultrasound is a form of deep heating in which high frequency sound waves are applied to the skin and penetrate the soft tissues. Ultrasound is especially useful in relieving acure episodes of pain, breaking up scar tissue and enhancing healing.
