Myofascial Work: Fascia is the connective tissue that perfuses your entire body. It wraps around each of your muscle cells and creates a system where the forces needed to suspend the body in the gravitational field are neatly dispersed from head to foot and limb to limb. Myofascial Release works on the fascial system by lengthening tight bands of fascia, realigning aberrant fascial arrangements caused by injury and inflammation, and increasing local circulation to the target tissue allowing for a healthy realignment of the body. I love this technique for any chronic condition and postural problems.
Neuromuscular Release: If you've ever had ART you'll know what this feels like. Neuromuscular release focuses on using a combination of movement and pressure to normalize the target muscles ability to move by influencing both the local tissue and the nervous system.This is a great technique for acute and chronic problems.
Craniosacral therapy: A gentle, pain free Osteopathic technique that affects the nervous and fascial system and joints. I’ve found it to be very effective for treating lower back, pelvic and jaw dysfunction.
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture: a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which acupuncture needles are inserted into specific anatomic locations.They are then stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system (and by extension the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems). This manipulation has effects at the local tissue, the spinal cord and the brain. Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is mechanism-based, not disease-based. Therapeutic goals and treatment targets are selected based on the identified neurological dysfunctions contributing to the clinical presentation of the symptoms.
I love this technique. It’s elegant, non invasive, comfortable and obscenely effective. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Remedial Exercise: This is your homework. You will be assigned some. I won’t test you, but good care starts on the table and continues in your life. These exercises include stretching, functional strength exercises, form correction in asana or lifts, core conditioning and techniques specifically designed to help your body maintain an optimal posture in the gravitational field.
