Massage Therapy:

Massage Therapy is a healing art that uses methods of human touch to rehabilitate injuries, restore posture, relieve pain, fatigue, stress and to improve movement patterns or athletic performance. It also facilitates relaxation as well as provides other health benefits. There are hundreds of types of massage beside the popular Swedish-style techniques.
CranioStructural Therapy® Cranio Somatic Therapy® by Dr. Dallas Hancock, Ph.D.,, DC.
These techniques employ cranial manipulation that uses ‘direct’ movement of the cranial bones bringing symmetry or balance to the face and head and most remarkably to the body’s spine, joints and overall posture. In addition, these techniques have proven to be helpful for scoliosis, spinal stenosis, postural distortion, pain and many types of injuries.
Cranio Structural Therapy and Cranio Somatic Therapy are distinctly not the same as craniosacral therapy which is an indirect technique developed by Dr. John Upledger. Craniosacral technique focuses more on spinal fluid, circulation, spinal dural membrane function as well as immune function.

Computer Assisted Micro Current (since 1984)
Deep Tissue:

Deep Tissue Massage is a deep general full body massage that is relaxing. The deeper pressure used relieves more chronic pain and stiffness than Swedish massage.

Neuromuscular Therapy:

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is the scientific application of properly applied pressure for reducing trigger points and the consequent referral pain and postural imbalance that can happen to the body’s frame. Originally developed by Paul St. John, the training that he provides will also address postural distortion and biomechanical movement pattern correction.

Lymphatic Massage
Swedish Massage
Reflexology is the application of pressure to certain reflex points on your feet, hand, and head. This improves circulation, relieves stress, increases energy and relieves pain.
Acupuncture is an ancient medicine that fits our growing interest in natural healing. Hair-thin needles are used to gently stimulate the body’s own recuperative powers. This helps avoid unnecessary medications and surgery in many patients. Treatments often involve other modalities as well, such as Cupping, moxibustion, herbs, acupressure and B12 injections. Provided by our licensed acupuncturist Dr. Josh Zimmer.
Currently, acupuncture is used to treat conditions like:

  • muscle spasms and  chronic pain anywhere in the body
  • headaches, including migraines
  • neck pain
  • Sleep disturbances
  • knee pain
  • allergies
  • digestive problems
  • Mood swings and depression

Bio Assessment:
Precision muscle testing is used to assess a comprehensive array of health factors such as meridian/organ function, microbiome, gut-brain, hormonal balance and immune function. Inhibiting factors such as toxicity levels, candidiasis, electro-smog interference, emotional issues are also assessed. Consultation is educational in nature and designed to empower the client to make informed choices about their wellness concerns.

Tensegrity Matrix Bodywork:
Relieves pain fast * Speeds recovery * Improves function * Dismantles pain patterns.
The concept of the tensegrity matrix is the missing link in rehabilitation, pain relief and recovery from any type of physical trauma or chronic pain. Tensegrity Matrix Bodywork is a new paradigm, whole systems science that allows the amazingly complex and sophisticated human body to identify and unravel trauma according to its own inherent mechanisms of prioritization. When the body’s innate intelligence directs the therapeutic process, trauma resolution becomes natural and easy, bringing forth exceptional outcomes.
Helpful for all types of bodily pain and dysfunction, post-surgical pain, auto accident, scar pain, TMJ, mystery pain of unknown cause, PTSD, neuropathy, and stroke. Relief is also possible for conditions that conventional medicine considers difficult or untreatable (without heavy painkillers), such as trigeminal neuralgia, shingles after-pain syndrome, amputee phantom pain, reflex sympathetic dystrophy/complex regional pain syndrome. Satisfaction guaranteed. Feel better or pay nothing. Expect results.
Scar Therapy:
Trauma and surgery cut through muscles, nerves, connective tissue and acupuncture meridians. Both organ function and the structural integrity of the musculoskeletal system can be significantly compromised. Bio-compatible therapeutic micro-current is used to correct de-polarized scar tissue, release constricted connective tissue, relieve pain and restore meridian flow to the affected organ(s). The physical appearance of scars can also be reduced and scar sensitivity minimized.
Health impact example: Over 80% of women who have had breast surgery develop digestive disturbances. This is often due to the disruption of the stomach meridian which travels vertically through the breast. Learn more about the hidden effects of scars on your health.
Kinesiology is the study of movement. Specialized Kinesiology is the study and practice of the movement of energy and informational content within the human organism for the purpose of resolving trauma and restoring balance. There are many branches of Specialized Kinesiology, each with its own area of focus. Collectively, all Specialized Kinesiology disciplines utilize the binary (two units of measure) electrical nerve impulses inherent in the muscle response to communicating with the body in its own bio-electrical language. The vast scope of this exceptional communication tool provides an unparalleled opportunity for healing in body, mind, and spirit.
