This ancient form of bodywork is used to assist the body in healing. Therapists manipulate and mold soft tissue structures to prevent and treat injury, increase joint range of motion, unwind stubborn knots, decrease pain and increase your state of well-being.
Medical Acupuncture focuses on treating soft tissue dysfunction, stress and pain. Fine needles are inserted along anatomical points to treat trigger points, joint and ligament pain and to decrease sympathetic nervous system response. Acupuncture has been proven to reduce inflammation, decrease muscle tension, aid in stress reduction and release endorphins which promote deep relaxation.
Gentle holding of the cranium, face, and sacrum is performed by the therapist to examine the movement of CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) as it travels along the spine and cranium. Helpful for trauma of any kind, whiplash, headaches, migraines, anxiety and stress.
Silicone cups are used therapeutically to increase blood flow, promote detoxification and treat tissue dysfunction in the body. Through their use of suction, cupping draws deep from the superficial layers of muscles and fascia loosening chronic tension. This technique can be easily incorporated into any treatment.
