Functional Range Assessment: FR founded by Andreo Spina is a system of manual musculoskeletal assessments, treatments and rehabilitation. This technique will use passive range of motion to assess and treat and determine if you have a mechanical, neurological or joint problem. Therapist, Jenna Dallinga will then provide you with your 'homework' to continue your progress.
Active release technique is an innovative treatment that is helping world-class athletes, active individuals, and people from all walks of life. It is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. ART is designed to alleviate the buildup of scar tissue and adhesions after soft tissue injuries.
IASTM (Instrumental assisted soft tissue mobilization) is a non-invasive treatment that has been proven effective for many chronic soft tissue conditions such as Plantar Faciitis, IT Band Syndrome, Shin Splints, Knee Pain, and Hip Pain. Rather than just treating the symptoms presented by these conditions, the IASTM process targets the physiological source of the pain or injury. IASTM effectively deals with scarred or degenerative tissue that can occur after injuries in muscles, tendons or ligaments. IASTM stimulates the return of healthy muscle and tissue. When combined with A.R.T, these soft tissue tools allow the affected area to release quicker and with less pain.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese technique that has found its place in the modern world of healing. By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping therapy used to soften tight muscles, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. (will cause suction marks)
Kinesio Tape is a unique therapeutic method, which provides support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting range or motion or circulation. The Kinesio Taping Method focuses on your body’s own natural healing process. When correctly applied over the muscles, Kinesio Tape can reduce pain and inflammation and help relax overused and tired muscles.
Leuko Tape is a rayon-backed, latex-free rehabilitation tape with a high tensile strength. Its zinc oxide adhesive ensures that once wrapped Leuko tape will remain in place for hours, even when a patient is active and in motion. We use leuko tape for injury prevention, rehabilitation, supportive adhesive, recovery from sports related injuries as well as to manage muscle or joint pain, relieve pressure and provide stability.
Lymphatic Drainage for Inflammation
A more focused spot treatment of a lymphatic massage, stimulate the lymph system and clear your body’s tissues of waste and swelling. The lymphatic drainage technique uses very light pressure in a rhythmic, circular motion to move lymphatic fluid back to the heart and nurture your body’s natural healing systems. This is helpful to reduce inflammation in the extremities.
