THERAPY: The craniosacral system is the closed system from
the brain/cranium to include the spine to the base of the spine/sacrum.
The cerebral spinal fluid flows within this closed system. With
injury and compressive forces to the body this closed system is
disrupted causing pressure and pain at various points through
the system. This can lead to chronic headaches, back pain, and
TMJ problems to name a few. Through a series of gentle techniques
from the cranium to the sacrum with pressure no greater than a
nickel/5 grams, normal alignment and fluid flow of the spine can
be restored thus eliminating the pain and pressure.
ENERGY TECHNIQUES: This is a gentle technique that helps to
improve joint mobilization and joint alignment by having the therapist
place the patient in a precise position then performing a gentle
muscle contraction to inhibit the tight muscles and improving
joint range of motion.
TISSUE MOBILIZATION: soft tissue mobilization is a combination
of a variety of techniques that help to loosen the muscles, tendons
and joint capsules to allow improved mobility in the body.
RELEASE: the fascial tissue is the connective tissue in the
body that surrounds our muscles, blood vessels, tendons, organs,
etc. Myofascial release is a gentle hands-on technique to decrease
tightness and restriction to this connective tissue due to injury,
surgery, or scar tissue. It improves the blood flow and promotes
healing to the injured area.
REHAB: Specific exercises such as the Epley maneuver or Semont
technique to change the position of crystals in the inner ear
REHAB: Exercises that challenge your nervous system to improve
your balance reactions in a safe environment. The exercises initially
are simple and then become more challenging to help reduce the
risk of falls and improve stability with walking.
MOBILIZATION: This is graded oscillations to improve the mobility
and range of motion of a joint. Gentle oscillations are used for
pain management. Greater force oscillations are used for joints
that are more fixated such as a frozen shoulder.
YOGA THERAPY: Restorative yoga uses props such as pillow,
towels, blankets and chairs to assist a person in a yoga position.
This is for people who cannot get into the full position of a
yoga pose due injury, joint dysfunction, or muscular dysfunction.
The therapist can utilize some of these positions to assist you
in your healing process or help you maintain your current yoga
TECHNIQUES: This is a painfree method to release "knots"
or trigger points in the muscles. We determine the muscle that
has the trigger point, place it into its shortened position where
it will then be painfree, hold it for 60-90 seconds, then release
the position and the trigger point will be gone.
TECHNIQUE: The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy
known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. This technique
reduces pain by breaking down the scar tissue and fascia restrictions
that are usually associated with some form of trauma to the soft
tissue (e.g., strained muscle or a pulled ligament, tendon, or
fascia). It aides in reducing restrictions by stretching connective
tissue in an attempt to rearrange the structure of the soft tissue
being treated (e.g., muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments) thus
promoting a better healing environment for the injured soft tissue.
