CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE / PHYSICAL MEDICINE
“Structure affects Function”
This starts with an orthopedic and neurological assessment using postural analysis of the musculoskeletal system. It assesses how structure affects function and how it impacts other aspects of health.
Manual adjustments of the spine and extremities serve to realign musculoskeletal structures, improve function and stimulate the nervous and vascular system. Stretching and muscle balancing techniques are incorporated to help the alignment last longer.
CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY
This gentle manipulation of the head, spine and sacrum serves to align the autonomic nervous system. It works by releasing the tension of the membranes, which interconnect the nervous and skeletal system. The overall effect is to enhance the flow of cerebral spinal fluid, blood and nerve energy.
PHYSICAL THERAPY (PT)
PT entails various modalities that are applied to restore musculoskeletal function, decrease pain and inflammation and increase strength. These include:
Deep tissue bodywork uses various techniques to relieve muscle spasm and stress, increase circulation of blood and lymph, increase muscle and skin tone, detoxify tissues and promote wellbeing. Essential oils are used to enhance therapeutic effectiveness.
THAI YOGA MASSAGE
A combination of acupressure,gentle stretching and pulling techniques derived from Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines. The purpose of the massage is to restore and improve the flow of “prana”, or vital life energy. Improves flexibility and the structural alignment.
MAYAN ABDOMINAL MASSAGE
This is an ancient massage technique practiced by the Curanderas and Healers of the Mayan culture in Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico. The purpose is to massage and reposition the uterus, ovaries, and other abdominal organs through an external and non-invasive treatment. The goal is to restore circulation of blood and nutrients into the regions and to allow the proper elimination of toxins. The Mayan Massage is essential for all issues related to the female reproductive tract and fertility.
