Treatment Procedures

Physical therapy evaluation locates the source of the dysfunction. We apply both traditional and alternative techniques that differ from the standard physical therapy approach: a mixture of myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and mobilization. Additional techniques such as stretching and gentle stabilization exercises are also prescribed as needed. We also offer programs on balance, posture, pre/post operation education, and gait training. You will be educated of the nature of your condition, and on ways to help heal yourself.

Treatment is focused on the whole system: head, neck, spine/spinal cord, pelvis, and extremities. Most of the session involves gentle holding of areas where body is restricted. Clients may or may not be aware of the subtle sensations that are produced during the work, but the experience tends to be a generalized relaxation of the body and a feeling of well-being. Results reported include relief of pain and recovery in mobility and function. Additionally, clients can learn how to access their own inner body contact, that can reveal unconscious processes that may be contributing to their issues. 

This treatment approach is popular with most of our clients who suffer from chronic pain, and that is because the treatment is so deeply relaxing while restoring energy. We consider the cause of their pain, which is due to old injuries, motor vehicle accidents, traumas, concussions, and sprains/strains.
