DSC 1241For more than 25 years, Kinesio Taping has been breaking new ground in the fields of sports performance, pain management and physical therapy.
The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.

DSC 1218Dry needling is a procedure in which thin filament sterile acupuncture needles are inserted in a specific target soft tissue directly at a myofascial trigger point in order to improve or restore function and/or control pain. Dry needling is usually performed in conjunction with physical therapy techniques when appropriate to gain an optimal response.
Most people don’t feel the insertion of the needle. The local twitch response may cause a brief painful reaction described as an electric shock or cramping sensation. It is important to remember that the therapeutic effect only occurs by eliciting the twitch response, and therefore, it is the desirable reaction

Physical therapy is a patient-centered approach focusing on the manual treatment of the soft tissue - muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia. Therapists use highly skilled, hands-on techniques to diagnose, prevent or treat underlying conditions and problems. It is based on health science principles and works alongside other health care practices.
Physical therapy is founded on a tradition which recognises and values the healing properties of touch. It is proven as being very safe, non-invasive and is of course, drug free. Each treatment is individually tailored to your needs. The therapist, after carefully noting your history and completing a thorough physical examination will devise a treatment plan which may include suggesting appropriate changes to lifestyle, work practice or exercise

 

 

Remedial MassageRemedial massage is a deep tissue massage to assist your body’s return to normal health after injury or with muscular-skeletal disorders. It is used to treat chronic muscular-skeletal imbalances, strains, sprains, bruising or any injury where the skin is intact. Deep tissue massage removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury, speeds up recovery and encourages more complete healing. Remedial massage is also used for conditions created by lifestyle for example Repetitive strain injury and Back pain. It is designed to increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas.

Is an innovative and relatively new method of bodywork and muscle therapy which utilizes manual muscle testing to assess dysfunctions of the coordination system of the brain resulting from traumatic injury, over use, under use, repetitive stress, postural stress, etc. It cues the brain for new learning resulting in immediate correction of neuromuscular imbalances. NKT® works with the body’s organizational intelligence, addressing pain at its source: the motor control center of the brain. Practitioners can quickly and accurately correct the dysfunctional postural and movement patterns that are the source of most mystifying chronic pain and degeneration of the muscles and joints.
NeuroKinetic Therapy® works by communicating with the motor control center of the brain. Most musculoskeletal pain is caused by imbalances of neurological origins wherein some muscles are overactive, while others are inaccessible by the brain. Using manual muscle testing, the neuromuscular patterns governing these movements are accessed in the brain’s motor-control center and can be “edited” for greater efficiency. This process allows NKT® to yield faster and longer-lasting results than many other techniques.
NKT® uses strategy, not force to achieve results. It can provide solutions for conditions that have not responded to previous treatments. This advanced therapy blends well with and is the perfect adjunct to other treatments such as chiropractic, physical therapy and acupuncture.
Some of the benefits of NKT® include:
• Uses muscle testing to locate the source of the problem
• Achieves faster, longer-lasting results than many methods
• Eliminates enduring patterns of dysfunction from old injuries
• Reduce the effects of repetitive stress injuries
• Enhances athletic performance
• Quickly improves muscle coordination
• Increases range of motion, energy, strength and stamina throughout the body
• Work is done with clothes on for maximum comfort
• Coupled with corrective exercises for maximum benefit
