Body Balance & Movement
Body Balancing and Movement are very important for the body and your overall spinal health. Movement is the only thing that hydrates your spinal disc since it does not have its own blood supply. If a segment or vertebrae becomes misaligned it will cause the fluid between the soft tissue to become stagnate and/or congested. That can lead to stiffness, then tightness/spasms and then pain and discomfort. We have various techniques for releasing Myofascial issues and scar tissue. Each treatment is based on you and your specific needs.
Myofascial Trigger Point Release Technique
Focuses on releasing tight bands of muscles that can form after injury or overuse. Effective for pain relief and increasing range of motion.
A technique that is slow and uses deeper strokes to target the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Effective for pain relieve and muscle tensions.
Active Release Technique
Breaks up adhesions which are dense collections of scar tissue that form when the muscles and connective tissues are injured. When the scar tissue binds between your muscles, it limits the range of motion and flexibility. Effective for pain and stiffness in the muscles and joints.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Faciliation
Focuses on the fascial connective tissue of the body working to stretch, lengthen and soften tissue. Effective for restoring postural balance, ease of movement and experience a calmer sense of well-being. Effective for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.
An ancient modality using suction to increase blood flow to enhance circulation and provide pain management. Effective for chronic or acute back aches and muscles pains, restrictions in fascia/scar tissue, poor circulation, stress, anxiety, stiff muscles and achy joints.
A unique treatment that uses suction to lift tissue as the cup is moved by the practitioner to decompress underlying tissue. The cup comes in various sizes depending on the treatment area needed. It focuses on releasing tight bands, scar tissue and tight muscles from injury or overuse. Effective for pain relief, scar tissue and muscle tensions
Traditionally used by Mexican midwives during cultural women’s ceremony, repositioning mothers during and after childbirth, aid in supporting the pelvis and carrying the baby after birth. This technique uses a gentle sifting rhythmic rocking motion to loosen up the stagnation along the spine, encouraging cerebral spinal fluid to flow easier, also assist in loosed up the lymphatic system and the skeletal system along with resetting the bones.
Prenatal Body Balancing
Prenatal care is key to a happy pelvis = happy baby. If the mom felt any pains in the hips and low back prior to pregnancy, likelihood of hip and back pain will increase with pregnancy. If the pelvis is not in the proper alignment, the baby is force to find a comfortable position at the expense of mom. If the baby is placed in this position for a prolonged time.
