MUSCLE ACTIVATION TECHNIQUE

Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) is one of the most unique and powerful techniques utilized by the practitioners in our offices. The ultimate goal of the technique is to identify muscles that have disengaged due to trauma and then re-activating them to improve muscle tone, bio-mechanical patterns and ultimately function.

The technique blends eastern and western medical practices to create an immediate and long lasting improvement in muscle function. Once performed on a muscle, it should remain active and strong for months or even years to come.

 
 

ACTIVATOR TECHNIQUE

The most thoroughly researched chiropractic technique in the world, the activator method is one of the most gentle and effective techniques out there. The Activator technique utilizes a specialized percussive tool to send impulses into the spine that requires much less force than traditional chiropractic adjustments. If you or your loved ones are nervous about getting "cracked", this is a great alternative that is safe for all populations from newborns to geriatric patients.

DRY NEEDLING

Deep Tissue like you wouldn't believe. The use of needles to affect connective tissue, muscle and even bone (the outer surface at least) has been researched and shown to be highly effective since the 1940s. While it can be intimidating at first, most patients experience much less pain than expected in the procedure and often leave with immediate improvements. 

 

MYOFASCIAL THERAPY

Fancy term for deep massage. Our therapists are highly trained in a number of massage techniques to give you exactly what you need. Muscle spasms, knots, and limited range of motion are often treated with these massages, but a number of other amazing benefits come from therapeutic massage- such as decreased cortisol levels, lowered blood pressure and higher reported levels of relaxation/happiness.

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, as well as many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more.1

 

KINESIOLOGY TAPING

Kinesiotaping is a technique made popular by professional and olympic athletes to enhance performance, reduce recovery time and decrease inflammation/swelling. KT taping has been found to be especially powerful at helping the lymphatic system to pull swelling out of injured tissue.
