Manual Osteopathy

The body has the amazing ability to  heal itself naturally. Trauma, repetitive stress or emotional stress, for example, causes the  body to dysfunction. As part of the healing process, the body will always migrate to function with most ease. However, this is how misalignment, shortened tissue and decreased range of motion evolve, often resulting in pain and discomfort that can be presented in a variety of different symptoms. In most cases the root of the problem is no where near where the symptoms occur. Manual osteopathy is based on the concept that the structure of the body affects how it will function and that it functions as a unified whole. The client is dressed in loose fitting clothes to allow for movement and comfort.  Using a gentle, hands on approach, Manual osteopathy assists in the natural healing of the body to get to the root of the problem by applying a whole body approach to healing. It works to restore proper mechanics and improve function in structure, musculoskeletal, visceral, nervous and circulatory systems and nurture emotional releases by utilizing different modalities, bringing the body back to its natural balance.

Lensen Technique

A gentle technique less forceful than a high velocity adjustment. It uses isometric muscle contraction to create movement between two joints. This reduces muscle and nerve restrictions around the effected joints to create proper alignment, encourage proper movement, increase range of motion within the joint and decrease pain.

Myofascial Release

Fascia is made up of fibrous connective tissue called collagen. It attaches, stabilizes, surrounds and separates muscles, internal organs, nerves and blood vessels. It also prevents friction between moving tissues and has a rich nerve supply of its own. Trauma, repetitive stress, inflammation and surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that produce tensile stress on tissue, resulting in pain and restricted movement. Myofascial release is a technique that applies slow, elongating movements to bring fluid back into the fibers to create glide and reduce friction between muscle layers, increase range of motion, and decrease tension within the body.

Visceral Manipulation

This modality is used to break down fascia restrictions within or surrounding an organ to restore full movement and function of that organ. The malleable organs include liver, stomach, large and small intestine, gallbladder, uterus, prostate, kidneys, spleen, pancreas and bladder. The techniques are small, gentle movements that have profound effects on the entire body.

Craniosacral

Craniosacral is a practice based on understanding rhythmic, subtle movements of the cranial bones and fluctuations of the cerebrospinal fluid within the spinal cord and brain, which effects the Central Nervous System. It is a gentle, non-invasive technique where the therapist gently works with the body, including the spine, sacrum and skull. The therapist is able to detect disturbances in the cranial sacral rhythm which helps identify areas of dysfunction in cranial, sutural, and other soft tissue restrictions in the body, as well as calm and/or reset the nervous system.
