MODALITIES

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a form of therapy that uses sustained pressure to release tension and pain in the body's soft tissue structures, including muscles, tendons, and fascia. It is often used to relieve pain and stiffness, improve range of motion, and restore flexibility and strength.

NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is a therapeutic technique that combines manual muscle testing with movement re-education. It is designed to identify and correct muscle imbalances and movement compensations that can lead to pain and injury. NKT can improve muscle function, coordination, and posture, as well as reduce pain and the risk of injury.

 

Together, MFR and NKT can help you achieve optimal muscle function, movement, and performance. Whether you're an athlete looking to improve your performance or a person looking to relieve pain and improve your overall health, MFR and NKT can help you reach your goals.

Other therapies that may be included in your integrated treatment:

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) can be beneficial for a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, sports injuries, muscle imbalances, and movement dysfunctions. IASTM is a manual therapy technique that involves using specialized instruments (RockBlades) to apply pressure to soft tissue structures in the body, such as muscles, tendons, and fascia. The purpose of IASTM is to help improve the function and health of soft tissues, reduce pain and discomfort, and enhance the healing process. The instruments used in IASTM are typically made of a hard material, such as stainless steel or plastic. They have a unique shape and texture that allows the practitioner to apply pressure to specific areas in a controlled and precise manner. IASTM is typically performed in conjunction with other manual therapy techniques, such as stretching and massage.

Myofascial Silicone Cupping is a type of manual therapy that involves the use of silicone cups (RockPods) to apply suction to the skin and underlying soft tissues. The suction created by the cups is believed to help improve blood flow, break down adhesions and scar tissue, and relieve pain and discomfort. By applying suction to specific areas of the fascia, practitioners aim to release restrictions and improve the health and function of the soft tissue structures. When using RockPods typically after application of the cups the practitioner will have client perform movements and stretching to help the neuromuscular connection. This therapy is considered safe and non-invasive, and the silicone cups are typically easy to move around the body, making it possible to target specific areas that need attention.

 

Compression Band Therapy is a type of physical therapy that involves using a strip of elastic material (RockFloss), such as a compression band or rubber tubing, to improve mobility and alleviate pain in the muscles, tendons, and fascia. The rock floss is applied to the affected area and is used to compress and stretch the soft tissues while the client moves the wrapped tissue to create more myofascial shearing. The purpose of rock floss therapy is to help soften adhesions and scar tissue, improve circulation, and enhance the proprioceptive function of the affected area. Rock floss therapy is often used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

 

  • Musculoskeletal pain: The therapy can be used to alleviate pain and discomfort in the muscles and joints, helping to improve mobility and reduce the risk of further injury.

  • Sports injuries: Rock floss therapy is often used to treat sports injuries, such as sprains and strains, by providing support and stability to the affected area and reducing pain and swelling.

  • Mobility and flexibility: The therapy can be used to improve mobility and flexibility in the affected area, helping to reduce stiffness and enhance performance.

Visceral Manipulation is a type of manual therapy developed by French osteopath Jean-Pierre Barral. It is a form of manual therapy that focuses on the treatment of the internal organs, including the liver, spleen, intestines, and other abdominal viscera. The technique is based on the concept that the internal organs, like the muscles and bones, have a functional relationship with the rest of the body and can be affected by physical, emotional, and chemical stressors. Barral's Visceral Manipulation aims to address these imbalances and restrictions within the viscera to improve their function and enhance the overall health of the patient.The techniques are designed to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms, reduce pain and discomfort, and improve overall function and well-being. Barral's Visceral Manipulation is often used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

 

  • Abdominal pain

  • Digestive disorders

  • Chronic constipation

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Herniated discs

  • Sciatica
