MYOSKELETAL ALIGNMENT TECHNIQUES (MAT)
is a type of massage therapy/bodywork which blends the principles of osteopathy and structural integration to relieve chronic pain, and to reduce the potential for the emergence of pain which could become chronic over time.
Strain patterns become pain patterns if left ignored. This technique is often integrated into regular massage and bodywork sessions, and it can also be used alone to treat systemic problems. Practitioners of myoskeletal alignment technique can be found in many regions of the world. The focus of this technique is on back and neck pain in particular, since this type of pain is extremely common in the industrialized world.
The basic idea behind myoskeletal alignment technique is that back and neck pain are caused by fundamental problems with the musculoskeletal system. Tight, stressed muscles contribute to pain by limiting freedom of movement, while weak muscles provide inadequate support for the body. This in turn leads to posture problems, stiffness, and other symptoms which create an endless cycle of pain. By addressing the fundamental issues in the muscles and fascia, practitioners hope to eliminate the associated symptoms.
Structural integration and osteopathy both rely heavily on the manipulation of the muscles, fascia, and skeletal system with the goal of promoting general musculoskeletal health. The idea behind structural integration is that if someone's body can be aligned properly, his or her health problems can be dramatically reduced, because the body will work as a whole. Osteopathic practitioners share this idea, arguing that many chronic health conditions are related to musculoskeletal problems.
TOTAL BODY BALANCING (TBB) is based on classical osteopathic theory using long levers to relax the muscles, fascia, joints and ligaments to improve circulation, nerve, and energy flow, thus normalizing sympathetic and parasympathetic neurological activity with a goal of creating a new homeodynamic state. This long lever approach influences all systems of the body including both the visceral and craniosacral systems and serves as a support and integration for specific treatment of these systems.

TOTAL BODY ENERGETICS (TBE)
bridges the gap between bodywork and energy medicine. Our body stores patterns of physical tension (from poor ergonomics, trauma, surgery, sports injury, car accidents, falls etc.) as well as unresolved emotions, thoughts, beliefs, consciousness, fears, and phobias in the tissues.TBE works with the energy dynamics of the anatomy and physiology of the body and aids in releasing both acute and chronic patterns. The body is a dynamic unit of function meaning that mind, body and spirit are interconnected and interdependent, and are in a constantly changing and evolving state. Total Body Energetics is unique in that it addresses and treats all aspects of this unit at the same time! The technique itself is simple, effective, non-invasive and integrative. Utilizing energy dynamics, the TBE approach can be performed on or off the body and integrates mind, body and spirit in a focused manner at the core level of dysfunction. Total Body Energetics can be used as an incredibly effective stand-alone technique or can be integrated with other healthcare modalities.
Energy Medicine is the Way of The Future
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a precise method used for assessing, treating and preventing soft tissue injuries and chronic pain, incorporating very specific techniques into a wellness massage encouraging the release of physical pain, trauma and stiffness. Old injuries or chronic physical conditions and stress are coaxed into letting go of holding patterns affecting the whole body and muscle/nerve interactions. NMT is excellent in cases of soft tissue dysfunction that can cause Headache, Migraine, Scoliosis, TMJ, Whiplash, Herniated Disk, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Hip Pain, Knee Pain, Foot Pain, Osteoarthritis, Plantar Facitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Sciatica, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Shin Splints, Tendonitis, Spasms, Cramps, Strains, Postural Distortions, Fibromyalgia, Patellar tracking, Rotator cuff injuries, Tennis elbow & Golfers elbow, iliotibial band syndrome, low back problems and many other pain issues.
The theory behind neuromuscular massage is that when a muscle spasms – due to one of any number of stimuli – it is not caused by a spasm in the entire muscle, but by a spasm in a very centralized area of the muscle, which may then reverberate to other areas of the muscle, causing pain.This small area is called a trigger point because it is the area that “triggers” pain in another area of the muscle, sometimes called referring or transferring. When a muscle (or trigger point) spasms in the body, blood flow to that area is severely decreased, sometimes ceasing altogether. When the blood flow is diminished, oxygen necessary for the muscle to work properly is also decreased, causing a buildup of toxins. This causes a sensation similar to the one felt after a long workout – muscle soreness. The problem is that this can turn into a vicious cycle of soreness and pain because the buildup of toxins combined with the body’s desire to compensate for the pain will inevitably lead to less blood flow, less oxygen, and the continued production of more toxins. This is why muscle soreness and pain can continue for years unabated. A good massage can help reverse the cycle and get you back on the path to health.
Central Nervous System Relaxation
YOUR BRAIN CAN BE THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL ON THE PLANET
Myofascial Therapy (MFT) is very effective in providing a slow gliding sustained pressure eliminating pain from the body and restoring motion. FASCIA (or connective tissue) is a specialised system of the body that is very densely woven, made of elastin and collagen, covering and inter-penetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The body's fascial system has an appearance similar to a spider's web or woollen sweater and is actually one structure that exists from head to toe without interruption connecting the entire body. In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and has the ability to stretch and move without restriction pain free. When we experience physical trauma, scarring or inflammation, however the fascia loses its pliability and becomes tight, restricted and a source of tension to the rest of the body. Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture over time and repetitive stress injuries have cumulative effects. The changes they cause in the fascial system influence comfort and the functioning of our body exerting excessive pressure which produces pain or restriction of motion. This affects our flexibility and stability and is a determining factor in our ability to withstand stress and strain. It is the fascia that contains the nerve cells and pain receptors in our body and the muscles contain the motor sensors of movement for the bones. Therefore releasing the adhesions that build up in our fascial bodies will eliminate the pain patterns that we feel. As life goes by and habits develop, these areas of chronic stress in the connective tissue thicken and rigidify, bunch up, stick together and lose their range of motion, which imposes limitations on the movement of the body as a whole. Once again, nothing like a good massage to get you back on the road to health!
We are sol/gel, semi-liquid, fluid crystal, and when we are not actively firming ourselves up into functional structures we are sagging and slipping!
Our flesh is like silly putty when it is ignored.Like putty, we are either shaping ourselves or we are drooping; like clay, we either keep ourselves moist and malleable or we are drying and hardening. We must learn to take our flesh in our own teeth, put our lives in our own hands, and actively participate with the subtle and awesome forces which weave the web of our existence.

BodyWork Is The BEST
Thai Massage has roots in the ancient healing traditions of Ayurveda and Thai Buddhism. Performed on a floor mat in comfortable clothes, this wonderful modality blends acupressure, gentle stretching, twisting, energy work, meditation, breathwork and massage all in one. Through deep muscle stretching, joint release and emphasis on breath, Thai massage opens your body and soul to greater depths. Using hands, arms, feet, knees and elbows, the practioner guides the recipient through a flowing series of yoga-like postures, while applying rythmic pressure along energy pathways. This flow creates a harmonious and therapeutic dance and enables the practitioner to access deep areas of tension while the recipient totally relaxes. This well respected and proven healing art is quickly gaining popularity in the west because of its meditative approach and its applications of yoga's well established benefits.
Traditional Thai Massage Nuad Bo Rahn
Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy is a barefoot compression massage based on ancient Ayurvedic and Buddhist principals where specific energy lines & acupressure points are released. Ashi means foot and atsu means pressure. Feet are like an extra big pair of hands and can apply deeper more even pressure increasing a larger area of blood circulation. The body receives gentle steady pressure or light gliding strokes providing a pain free & very relaxing massage. For those who prefer deep massage as well as those with thick or well-developed muscles who have trouble feeling the impact of massage done with the hands, this is the ultimate in deep relaxation. It is particularly effective on the muscles of the lower back, glutes, the length of the spine, hamstrings and shoulders, so it is often chosen by athletes and others affected in these areas.
IT FEELS LIKE A BIG PAIR OF HANDS
YOGA THERAPY Yoga is the union of body and mind through the breath. The journey of fusion to your own true self beyond what your mind/ego perceives. Breath is life. We need to slow down and enjoy THIS moment, remember to smell the flowers, remember to BREATHE…
Meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and asana (poses for opening and gently stretching the joints and muscles) are the introduction to YOURSELF. Do you run from difficulty or face the challenge with kind gentle persistence?
Do you try too hard or do you accept the present moment and try easy?
Meditation has been scienticifally proven to reduce stress and lower blood pressure.
Yoga therapy aims at specific spring cleaning the cobwebs of our body & mind with careful attention and focus on individual programs for every unique human form. Our body is a temple (not a tent!) which we inhabit and we need to honor and respect it with love and strength and flexibility.
Touching hands are not like pharmaceuticals or scalpels. They are like flashlights in a darkened room. The medicine they administer is self-awareness. And for many of our painful conditions, this is the aid that is most urgently needed. There is no doubt about the effectiveness of modern medicine in handling many life-threatening health crises.

Massage is REAL Medicine...
New research has found that massage therapy works best when received regularly by reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol while boosting the feel-good hormones serotonin and dopamine. These changes slow your heart rate, reduce blood pressure and block your nervous system's pain receptors. Blues be gone! Less cortisol and more serotonin and dopamine in your system means less stress, anxiety and depression. Massage therapy also increases blood flow to your muscles which helps them heal.
Goodbye pain - massage therapy eases distress from migraine, autoimmune disorders such as asthma, diabetes, dermatitis, chronic fatigue, and even cancer, as well as the body tenderness seen with fibromyalgia.
For every thought supported by feeling, there is a muscle change.
Man's whole body
Muscle makes up 70 - 85% of the body's weight.
Without water our bodies tissue dries up….
The elasticity goes with it and function declines.
WE NEED TO RUN OUR BODIES
THROUGH FULL RANGE OF MOTION,
EVERY JOINT, EVERY DAY
Without full range of motion function will be lost through disuse, just the way the car won't start if it's left sitting in the garage. Once we are functional, it doesn't take that much time or effort to maintain full function! "Can't move" situations are extremely rare. If dysfunctions brought on the pain, restoring function will eliminate pain.
Re-discover your own body's power to protect and rejuvenate itself, through mindful movement and postural awareness.
ARE YOU STRESSED?
That's All there is to it
YOUR HEALTH IS THE DIRECT RESULT OF HOW YOU EAT, MOVE & THINK!
Our bodies adapt to the environment we surround ourselves with. Our nervous system responds to stress by increasing our heart rate and blood pressure causing the release of cortisol.
OUR MIND IS THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL WE HAVE...
We can recreate the stress response by sub-consciously thinking about a past stressful event (dwelling on the loss of a job, bad test score etc) or anticipating a future stressful event (sitting in the dentist waiting room or thinking about telling your spouse you smashed the car!) Or we can choose to
CONSCIOUSLY THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS
eliminating the stress response and bringing the body back to it's natural vibrant state of health and well-being. Massage therapy and assisted stretching tecniques enhance local circulation and restore blood, oxygen and nutrients to the muscles relieving pain and chronic related adhesions allowing the body to relax as tension and stress patterns are released.How do you choose to surround yourself?
The concept behind a universal frequency and the innate capability of people to be an antenna for it, could find a common background in modern science. Magnetobiology studies have shown “how the human body magnetic field can be positively affected by other human being's electromagnetic field”.
“Healing energy, whether produced by a medical device or projected from the human body, is energy of a particular frequency or set of frequencies that stimulates the repair of one or more tissues.”Central to Reiki philosophy is the understanding that the human body energy field needs to be cared for in order for the human’s life experience to be one of optimum health and overall wellness. In reality, this is an ancient concept that was understood in many traditional medicine practices, such as Ayurvedic medicine from India and Acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine.
