Manual Therapy

Manual Therapy is one of the most versatile treatment options when it comes to physical and mental health.

Manual Therapy Options

The frequency of treatments depends on a number of different factors such as the severity of the condition, age, overall general health, and so on. The number of treatments needed will be determined during the first few sessions.

Therapeutic/Relaxation Massage

Massage Therapy is the assessment and manipulation of muscles, joints and connective tissue with the goal of obtaining a therapeutic benefit.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is an energy-based, hands-on-healing technique, much like acupuncture or Reiki, that is gentle yet exact and deeply therapeutic.

Cupping Massage

Cupping massage is an ancient form of therapy where cups are placed on the skin to create a vacuum through suction creating a therapeutic benefit.

Gua Sha

Gua sha is the practice of using a tool to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve musculoskeletal pain. By repetitively scraping the skin, the treatment increases blood flow to the area, encourages lymphatic drainage, and stimulates an immune response that brings helpful cells to the area to promote the healing process.
