ART® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Cupping is a form of decompression therapy using rubber cups, which use suction to lift and separate the superficial fascia, muscle and skin to increase circulation and lymph flow to the area. This therapy can be performed statically or with movement to help glide between fascial layers. This results in greater range of motion, decreased tension and pain.
Muscular imbalances can cause significant biomechanical dysfunction in our joints. When prescribed appropriately, exercise can correct these asymmetries and bring our joints back into harmony.
A healthy joint is one that moves freely within a normal range of motion. At times, the joints in the spine and extremities become fixated. The chiropractic adjustment imposes a specific force into the joint to help it function at optimal capacity.
This is the use of a small, solid filament needle which is inserted into a contracted, painful muscle. A twitch response in the needle serves as both a diagnostic and treatment tool. This will break the pain cycle, decrease muscle contraction, reduce chemical inflammation and improve flexibility.The needle produces a controlled lesion in the muscle which the body perceives as a threat. The body responds with an inflammatory response both locally and systemically.
RockTape is the Gold Standard in Kinesiology taping. The tape is used to help decrease pain by interrupting the pain impulse to the brain with movement. The tension on the tape helps lift the superficial tissue, allowing for more fluid transfer into and away from the affected area. Finally, it is used as a tactical cue to improve postural and movement patterns.
