This decreases pain caused by muscle tension or spasms. It also causes vasodilatation of the blood vessels which increases circulation to the area. Patients with muscle strains, spasms, or arthritis often benefit from treatment with moist hot packs.
Add-on Cupping. $25.00: Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist applies special cups on the skin to create suction. Cupping therapy assists to relieve pain, inflammation, increase blood flow, release bound up muscle tissue on a deeper level, and create a sense of relaxation and well-being. Cupping therapy dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, EbersPapyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
Therapeutic Taping $20.00 for one area $30.00 for two: Therapeutic taping can speed healing by allowing fresh oxygenated blood to flow into the effected muscle tissue, reduces inflammation, decrease pain, support injured muscles, support injured joints, protect injured ligaments and tendons, improve posture, assist muscle contraction, or stabilize a muscle from contracting too much.
REIKI: Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve health and enhance the quality of life. The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and is connected directly to the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures from ancient times. The existence of this "life force energy" has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion, it has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in. Reiki is not dependant on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.
Polarity Therapy: Polarity therapy is the art and science of balancing the life force energy within the human body. Polarity relates to one of the fundamental laws of nature, the attraction and union of opposite poles by way of a balanced middle point. The human body is an energy system much like a magnet or battery. It has positive, negative, and neutral poles and currents that flow through them.
