CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on therapy that enhances the body’s self-correcting properties. The process will encourage the production of new cerebrospinal fluid, which lubricates the membranes of the spine and skull. CranioSacral Therapy may alleviate a range of conditions such as: migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, scoliosis, TMJ problems, tinnitus, stress and tension, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, infantile disorders, ADD/ADHD, chronic neck and back pain, etc. www.craniosacraltherapy.org
Massage therapy loosens tight, strained, sore or spastic muscle fibers to ease pain, enhance function, improve blood circulation, decrease swelling, support rehabilitation, reduce stress and promote relaxation. Massage is effective with treating insomnia, tendonitis, cancer, constipation, chronic and acute pain, fibromyalgia, respiratory conditions, arthritis and many other ailments. The main types of massage performed are: relaxation, deep tissue, sports therapy, pregnancy and trigger point therapy.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage (not currently available)
By manually stimulating the lymphatic system, you can increase the carrying capacity of the lymph system, allowing it to process more fluid than normal. This helps to facilitate filtering out of waste products, dead cells, excess proteins and toxins from the tissues. A lymphatic massage can help to increase the production of lymphocytes, thereby increasing the body's ability to fight infections. As well as activate the parasympathetic response, producing a body-wide relaxation effect.
This is often classified as "psychological acupuncture", without the needles. This form of therapy is based on the idea that illnesses have an emotional cause or core issue. EFT potentially offers rapid relief from many conditions: pain, anxiety, guilt, phobias, grief, addictions, and many more. www.emofree.com
Magnetic fields have had a long history of therapeutic use. A PMT coil will produce invisible magnetic field lines, which permeate the body at a molecular level. The magnetic field stimulates the cells and creates a healing process by increasing circulation, which brings oxygen to the area and removes toxins. As a result, cartilage, bones and muscles will be repaired, alleviating many acute and chronic/degenerative conditions. The machine also supplies Infrared Therapy that can stimulate cell growth and repair, reduce inflammation, stimulate nerve function, reduce fibrous tissue and improve many skin conditions. www.magne-tec.com
Since the frequency of chronic disease is rising, increasing oxygen metabolism and reducing oxidative stress damage (at the cellular level) is increasingly important. The NanoVi ProTM device produces a bio-identical signal ( a signal equivalent to the one that our body generates naturally) to assist the body's repair and protection mechanisms and to boost cellular activity. Cellular activity is essential for: speeding up recovery, optimizing energy production, strengthening the immune system, promoting healthy aging and fighting many chronic diseases. This therapy creates the bio-identical signal and transmits it through moist air to the user. www.eng3corp.com
Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivity is a term that usually refers to delayed immune reactions to foods. IgG food reactions can be tested from a dried blood strip sample. IgG food sensitivities may contribute to the development of migraine headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating and indigestion, fatigue, weight gain and/or difficulty losing weight, and skin disorders like eczema. Food reactions take hours or days to develop, which makes it difficult to determine which food is responsible for the reaction without doing testing. Test kits are available through the clinic upon request.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that helps to treat problems and boost happiness by modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies. CBT may help with depression, anxiety, and a wide range of other problems.
