Neuromuscular Therapy

NMT utilizes massage therapy, stretching and home care to eliminate the causes of most neuromuscular pain patterns. It focuses on six physiological factors that can create or intesify pain patterns: ischemia, trigger points, nerve entrapment / decompression, postural distotions, nutrition and emotional well being. It is especially helpful for chronic tense and contracted areas such as stiff neck, lower back tightness and sore shoulders and legs. It works by physically breaking down adhesions (bands of painful rigid tissue), to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Cranio Sacral Therapy

Used to detect and correct imbalances in the craniosacral system which may be the cause of sensory, motor or neurological dysfunction. The cransiosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of hte skull, face and mouth - which make up to cranium - down to the sacrum, or tailbone area. Used to treat headaches, neck and back pain, TMJD, chronic fatigue, motor coordination difficulties, eye problems and central nervous system disorders.

Somato Emotional Release

Some physical symptoms won’t fully release and heal until the underlying emotional component has ben dealt with too.. This may be the case in chronic illness as well as in less obvious, sub-clinical pattern such as poor immunity, lack of energy, lack of confidence or anxiety for example. SER provides a framework and toolkit for working with the body’s tissues at the same time as the emotions to work towards a ‘release’ of any retained trauma. SER is gentle and creative as we listen to learn from both body and mind. SER facilitates personal growth, helps us move from illness, unresolved issues and lack of potential, towards health and fulfilment.
