Oriental medical technique for removing blood stagnation from the surface tissues of the body. The “sha” of Gua Sha refers to the red, blue or purplish marks that come to the surface during a Gua Sha treatment. This is the stagnant blood that had been trapped in the tissues, but now has been released, allowing blood and qi to circulate more freely in those areas. The marks usually disappear within 2-3 days after the treatment
MediCupping™ therapy utilizes a machine with glass or plastic cups to create suction on the body surface. One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue, which is invaluable in pre- and post-surgery treatments.
Thai Assisted Stretching
A 2,500-year-old Ayurvedic-based body science using assisted stretching and massage modalities to work on a client along with specific, assisted yoga poses. The underlying philosophy behind Thai yoga massage focuses on so-called energy points called “sen lines.” It is by working on these energy points that Thai yoga massage benefits the body
Foam Rolling & Recovery Training
Self-myofascial release is a fancy term for self-massage to release muscle tightness or trigger points. This method can be performed with a foam roller, lacrosse ball, Theracane, or your own hands. By applying pressure to specific points on your body you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function. Normal function means your muscles are elastic, healthy, and ready to perform at a moment’s notice
Postural Integration & Assessment
Alignment of body segments should be observed while the person is standing still and during such movements as walking, to detect faulty patterns of muscle activity and joint mobility. The better the quality of movement and the better the alignment of gravitational forces through joint’s axes, the better is the sequence of motion. When postural alignment improves, imbalances are minimized
