Our therapist take a “hands on” approach to your therapy and rely heavily on manual therapy treatment techniques such as joint mobs, muscle energy techniques, soft tissue mobilization, rhythmic stabilization, therapeutic massage, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. The benefits of this type of therapy is that it can trigger the body’s self healing abilities, promote joint mobility, correct imbalances in the body, relieve pain, stiffness in joints, and chronic conditions such as reoccurring headaches.
