It is an ancient scientific art based on the premise that there are zones and reflex points in the hands and feet that correspond to every organ, system, and gland in our bodies. Benefits - By stimulating these specific points on the feet, (which have over 7,000 nerve endings) it helps promote balance and an emotional sense of peace and well-being resulting in stress reduction which causes physiological changes in the body.

NMT (Neuromuscular Therapy)
Used for pain relief and specific muscular problems. NMT reduces pain, tension, postural imbalance, and lengthens and strengthens tissues.
Sport & Trigger Point Therapy
A first aid pressure technique used in the removal of pain. It is used to stretch soft tissue and muscles. Due to stress, illness and/or overuse, the body creates Trigger Points (knots), also known as a spasm. They occur when fatigued muscle fibers tangle and remain contracted. By using direct pressure on and around these trigger points, circulation is increased and painful knots are broken down. Benefits - While using deep pressure and stretching the muscles, you have a greater relief of pain and spasm.

A lymphatic massage session for women who develop lymphedema after surgery for breast cancer starts with light massage on the surface of the skin of the neck. Lymphatic massage is also indicated in other areas where lymphedema can occur (neck, head, legs, abdomen, groin) The therapist gently rubs, strokes, taps or pushes the skin in directions that follow the structure of the lymphatic system so that accumulated lymph fluid can drain through proper channels. Lymphatic drainage is very gentle, is not painful and doesn’t have a stimulating effect. Each session lasts from 45 to 60 minutes. The best results occur when the therapist and patient work together to control the lymphedema. Instructions are given for home treatment between office visits.
