Therapeutic massage treats a variety of orthopedic injuries, pain and dysfunction. Myo-fascial release, joint mobilisation, trigger-point therapy and deep tissue are used to facilitate tissue healing and restore proper movement.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on approach used to balance cranial rhythms and release tensions deep in the body, thus relieving pain and dysfunction. This therapy focuses on decreasing sympathetic nerve firing (biological fight or flight response) by paying particular attention to the cranial and neck regions.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Dysfunction Therapy
This therapy uses myofascial release to treat pain, which is the most common symptom of TMJ dysfunction, particularly in the chewing muscles and/or jaw joint. Other TMJ symptoms that benefit from treatment include radiating pain in the face, jaw, or neck. By relaxing contracted muscles in the jaw, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex of the muscles, patients find relief from the chronic pain of TMJ dysfunction without the need for medication.
