Our Services Include: BODYWORK THERAPY
An eclectic modality developed by Jeannine Kiger that specifically addresses soft tissue dysfunction, allowing the body's tissue to reintegrate, reorganize and restore function. Soft tissue modalities employed include specific lymphatic drainage, neuromuscular therapy, cranio-sacral manipulation with intraoral and unwinding techniques, carpal tunnel massage, massage for childbearing year (pre and post natal), vector point cranial therapy, visceral manipulation and fascial adhesion release.
FASCIAL ADHESION RELEASE
By using pressure and energy, and when appropriate a low level laser, collagen adhesions (fibrosis) can be liquefied and flushed from the body. This reestablishes joint spacing and the function of soft tissues such as muscles, nerves, blood vessels and internal organs (viscera).
Helps to release trigger points and re-orders arrangement of muscle, tendon and ligament fibers
Removes toxins from the tissues and out of the body. Lymphatic drainage enhance immune function and helps reduce edema (swelling).
Addresses the fascial system thru the dural tube that covers the brain and spinal cord. The results of cranio-sacral therapy extend to every stationary cell in the body to enhance mind and body coordination.
Reduces tissue dysfunction due to impact or birth injury. Unwinding is effective in that it helps to neutralize cell memory of trauma.
Releases adhesions on the abdominal, pelvic, and thoracic organs. Helps restore function to intestines, stomach, reproductive organs, bladder, liver, gall bladder, spleen and pancreas.
CARPAL AND TARSAL TUNNEL RELEASE
Helps to dissolve adhesions in the joints to allow free movement of muscle and tendons. Nerve conductivity, grip strength and circulation are also enhanced.
MASSAGE FOR THE CHILDBEARING YEARS
Mitigates the pain and discomfort of pregnancy. Applied techniques can reduce the time spent in labor and help ease the pain of labor and delivery as well as postpartum discomfort. Husbands are welcome.
Nutritional therapy involves rebalancing the body's biochemistry through the use of organic, natural substances, including food intake modification, to eliminate systemic stressors. Supplementation may also be employed to provide the system with necessary ingredients to build new tissue. Contact Reflex Analysis (muscle testing) is utilized to discern the most beneficial substances for individuals.
ION CLEANSE AND BIOCLEANSE
As your feet are soaking in water, a unit called an array emits ions into your system, neutralizing acid wastes and pulling them out of the body. These waste products attack joints, tissues, muscles, organs and glands and can cause minor to major dysfunction. Many people have reported much relief from pain, inflammation, swelling, skin afflictions and joint troubles.
Erchonia Lasers are known as low-level or "cold " lasers. These produce a thermal effect on tissue, unlike high-power lasers that use heat to destroy tissue. The low-level laser can be useful for accelerating healing of wounds, and reducing inflammation and pain.* * This information provided by Erchonia. For more information visit www.erchonia.com
Facial therapy reduces swelling and the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
This helps the cranial plates to re-position for proper articulation of the bones. It is effective for correcting TMJ dysfunction, among other conditions.
HYPEROXYGENATED BODYWORK (Waynesburg Office Only)
We begin by filling our 90 gallon stainless steel aseptic tub with water. The one gallon of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is added. This creates a +6% free oxygen (O2) concentration in which the client soaks, while specific soft tissue manipulation is performed. This technique enhances the effectiveness of bodywork as much as ten times above that of therapy performed on the treatment table. It is highly recommended for individuals who have no time to waste.
