Myofascial Release

Therapist(s):    Cam;     Naomi;   Nicole;   Jennifer;   Arwen;   Willow

Visceral Manipulation

Therapist(s):    Cam;   Nicole;  Jennifer;   Arwen;

Visceral Manipulation is a manual therapy, in which the internal organs are assessed for restrictions and compensations that might be creating pain or dysfunction in the body. It helps the body restore to a state of healthy function, through a gentle, hands-on approach. The tissue will be carefully mobilized, and as the problem is addressed the symptoms will begin to decrease.

Visceral manipulation is helpful when the organs have lost mobility due to physical trauma, surgery, lifestyle, pollution, infection, diet, pregnancy, posture, emotional trauma and more.

Pain and stress are reduced, resistance to disease is strengthened, and overall health and well-being are enhanced.
CST helps relieve a full spectrum of dysfunction including migraines and headaches; TMJ syndrome; PTSD; chronic fatigue; fibromyalgia; chronic neck and back pain; stress and tension related disorders; ADD/ADHD; and many other conditions.

Trigger Point Therapy

Therapist(s):   Naomi;   Jennifer;    Willow

Trigger points are mini-contractions found in specific muscle fibers within a larger muscle. Applying pressure to a trigger point will usually create a referral pattern of pain felt elsewhere, often recreating the client’s ongoing complaint. For example, tension headaches may be present as referrals from trigger points in the neck and jaw. Trigger points are treated by sustained and specific pressure to the point, which “deactivates” it, allowing the muscle to relax. Treating a trigger point can alleviate the referred pain felt elsewhere.

Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT)

Therapist(s):  Jennifer

In essence, Lymph Drainage Therapy is a hands-on technique designed to help recirculate body fluids, stimulate functioning of the immune system, and balance the autonomic nervous system.
It is a pleasurable process, inducing deep styles of relaxation which can aid insomnia, depression, stress, loss of vitality, and memory.
Other results can include reduction in edemas and the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia; relief of chronic pain, inflammation, and conditions such as acne, eczema and allergies; detoxification of the body; and the regeneration of tissues / anti-aging effects.

Soft Tissue Release (STR)

Therapist: Cam

STR is a combination of Myofascial Release, Therapeutic Massage and Active Assisted Stretching. The technique involves applying precise pressure during a specific stretch performed in multiple planes of movement.
The goal is to appeal to the Autonomic Nervous System in a way that leads to the spontaneous release of the injured muscle, thus regaining the original resting length of that muscle.

Reflexology

Therapist(s):      Jennifer;    Arwen;

Reflexology is based on the theory that every tissue, organ, and gland in the body is represented in the feet. By applying pressure to these sites and treating the feet, pain and discomfort in the entire body can be eased.

Osteopathy

Therapist(s):  Dmitry

Osteopathy is a method of alternative medicine. Although this is not a method of clinical medicine, osteopathy is based on a clear and precise principal of classical body anatomy and physiology. The main idea of the osteopathic approach is healing by returning the whole organism to the original state of natural health by the multiple manual techniques, using as for osteopathic diagnostic and treatment. The founder of Osteopathy (1874) was Andrew Taylor Still. He has been a medical doctor, but after long practice, he has found another approach to treatment.

Starting from the anatomical basis of the human body structure, osteopathy also affects physiology, and even the biophysical and psychological aspects of biological objects, resulting in the natural patterns of health rehabilitation. Usually, methods of osteopathy have the feature to be soft and extended in time.

The effect of osteopathy may not occur immediately but usually leads to sustained changes in the body. In other words, osteopathy can be called a contact with the body, by touch, resulting in the harmonization of the affected structures, by returning to the physiological mechanisms of life.
