MSK FLOSSING

The use of floss bands combines both compression and functional movement. They are great for ridding the body of swelling, which requires lymphatic stimulation, and the best way to deliver that is compression with movement. MSK floss bands are great for common joint and musculoskeletal injuries, both acute and chronic, to increase range of motion, reduce swelling, and maximize strength. They can also be used as an effective tool prior to activity to help increase blood flow to a problem area and ultimately increase range of motion by eliminating fascial restrictions while decreasing pain and soreness.

Gua Sha & Cupping

Gua Sha & Cupping are manual techniques used to move the body’s Qi, also known as energy, and blood. Both of these modalities can be used to relieve pain and inflammation. They are also used to break up adhesions that have formed between the skin, muscle, and fascia that can lead to, or be the cause of pain/dysfunction in the body. Gua Sha is performed with a Chinese soup spoon using short and long strokes along the skin in a scooping motion to help draw stagnant blood, also referred to as Sha, to the surface of the skin. It is performed prior to cupping because it can provide a road map as to where the cups should be placed. Cupping is like a deep massage but in reverse. The cups create an upwards suction on the skin, muscle, and fascia to stimulate the flow of the stagnant Qi and blood to the surface. This can be done by either placing the cups on and leaving them in one place or by moving the cups in a gliding motion along the skin.

Therapeutic Massage Therapy

Therapeutic Massage is a customized massage to get you back to performing your best. Whether you have been dealing with chronic pain or an acute injury, our massage therapists have the knowledge and experience to help you get back in the game or just back to living a healthy, pain free life. Each new patient will begin with a full body assessment and postural analysis to put together a course of treatment and find the root cause of their pain/dysfunction. It typically includes but is not limited to the following techniques: Effleurage, Petrissage, Kneading, Tapotement, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Passive and Active Stretching, Spinal Manipulation, Gua Sha, Cupping, and Graston Technique.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a hands-on therapy that is used to treat and improve the function of the central nervous system, along with other bodily system such as musculoskeletal, digestive, respiratory, endocrine, cardiovascular, and more. This gentle technique requires only 5 grams of pressure, about the weight of nickel, to be applied to the patient’s body to evaluate and treat the craniosacral system. This system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord. Even though the focus of the treatment is on the bones of the skull and spine, the entire body has a craniosacral rhythm and will be evaluated and treated during a session. This treatment has been shown to be very effective for a number of health issues, acute and chronic pain syndromes, and helping to reduce the symptoms and recovery time post head injury.

Graston Technique Therapy

Graston Technique is a specific form of instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation (IASTM), using Graston’s unique tools and specific treatment techniques. This technique is very effective in treating both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries, as well as post-surgical. Graston Technique is most commonly used to treat scar tissue and myofascial restrictions caused by injury and or surgery. Performing this therapy during rehabilitation it can facilitate healing, help increase range of motion, and ultimately eliminate pain by restoring the musculoskeletal systems functioning back to normal.

Rehabilitation

Our approach to rehabilitation is both proven and effective. We are unique in that the focus is not just solely on the injury site or where the patient reports they’re experiencing pain, but we look at the entire body to find the root cause of that pain and or dysfunction that caused the injury. Every patient on their initial visit will go through an evaluation of their injury and or pain site, full body assessment, have their results explained in detail, and discuss the course of treatment and exercise plan that will be implemented to help facilitate their healing. Rehabilitation typically includes but is not limited to the following techniques: Therapeutic Massage, Passive and Active Stretching, Spinal Manipulation, Gua Sha, Cupping, Graston Technique, Electrical Stimulaition, Cryotherapy, Thermotherapy, and Corrective Exercises.

Yoga

The origins of Yoga date all the way back to ancient India, with the word yoga meaning yoke or union. The practice of Yoga aims to bring together one’s mind and body through a series of physical, mental and spiritual disciplines. During a Yoga session, a practitioner will incorporate different poses, breathing exercises, and guided meditation. These sessions are designed to help promote a reduction in stress and encourage relaxation, while also helping to revitalize you. There are many different types of yoga from restorative and meditative styles to more power and strength-based Yoga sessions. Once the practitioners that will be instructing the classes are chosen, the different styles will then be made known on our class schedule.
