Active Isolated Stretching

Active Isolated Stretching Video Preview

Active Iѕоlаtеd Stretching is a technique that helps people increase the effectiveness of stretching without triggering the kind of discomfort that keeps many of us away from it. The therapist is able to stretch your body utilizing techniques and positions that wouldn’t be otherwise possible by yourself.

Isolate  the muscle that you want to stretch by contracting the opposite muscle. That is, if you are planning to stretch the hamstrings you must first actively contract the quadriceps. The hamstrings to relax and create a perfect environment for the hamstrings to stretch.
You have to repeat each stretch approximately 8 to 10 times to be able to increase the circulation of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the muscles that is stretched. This technique will make you gain the most flexibility each session. Remember, the more nutrition a muscle can obtain and the more toxins a muscle has the potential of releasing, the quicker  the muscles can recover.
Every stretch is held for a maximum of 2 seconds to prevent the activation of the stretch reflex. The stretch reflex (also know as the myotatic reflex) prevents a muscle or tendon from overstretching too far or too fast which is our body’s natural prevention of strains, sprains, and tears . By holding short streches, we increase our mobility with each repetition and eliminate any fear of pain/discomfort.

CranioSomatic Therapy

CranioSomatic video preview

‘Cranio’ means the head, and ‘Somatic’ means the muscles of the body. CranioSomatic therapies primarily use cranial tесhniԛuеѕ to facilitate сhаngеѕ in the funсtiоn of muscles,  which assists the whole body structure to shift into a more well balanced and comfortable alignment.

CranioSomatic Therapy can help everyone by improving his or her physical and emotional well being. This usually happens because stresses and limitations on the craniosacral system that reduce its performance effectiveness can be removed.

This preventative treatment helps to reduce healthcare costs because you are taking a proactive approach to your health care needs.

Doctor John Upledger developed CranioSomatic Therapy. He first observed the rhythmic movement of the craniosacral system in 1970. After numerous years of research, he established the Upledger Institute in 1985 to train healthcare practitioners about the advantages of CranioSomatic Therapy. Currently, over 80, 000 professionals worldwide have been trained on how to apply the CranioSacral Therapy.

  • Learning disabilities
  • Neck and back pain

Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.  Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Deep Tiѕѕuе Massage works bу brеаking down adhesions to  alleviate pain and restore regular movement. In order to do this, the massage therapist makes use of massage oil and frequently uses direct deep pressure. Muscles should to be relaxed to enable  that the therapist to reach the deeper musculature.
At some point during the massage, many people usually have a little discomfort and pain. It is therefore important to tell the massage therapist when it hurts and of any soreness or pain you have that may be giving you discomfort. There is usually some stiffness or pain after having a deep tissue massage, however it should subside within a day. The massage therapist might recommend that you apply ice to the area after the massage.

  • Chronic Discomfort
  • Sciatica
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Recurring Strain Injury
  • Postural Problems

Rock Taping

What is Rock Taping

Also known as kinesiology tape, RockTape is not just for the athletes, is can be applied to anyone having pain or swelling. It is also used to improve posture issues caused by daily activities such as sitting at a computer all day.  Rock Tape microscopically liftѕ the skin аwау from muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect.

Rock Tape is a kinesiology tape that is fantastic for treating common workplace/athletic injuries like shin splints, plantars and runner’s knee. Rock Tape also  increases endurance simply by allowing blood flow during an athletic event.
Once applied properly, Rock Tape lifts the skin away from the muscle, which allows blood flow. Faster blood circulation means more oxygen plus more lymph drainage, which assists in removing exercise byproducts.
It can be worn up to five days. It can be worn while swimming or in the shower. It is 100% cotton.
