What is Osteopathy?

What is Physical Therapy?

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is used to treat a range of conditions including lower back pain, migraine and knee pain. Increasingly, Acupuncture therapists, with their knowledge of trigger point therapy, are learning and practicing the NAT technique for treating complex shoulder conditions.

What is Medical Massage?

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) and joints of the body, involving a range of techniques. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate, & relieve pain. Stress and tension builds up in the body’s soft tissues during both physical activity and everyday wear and tear. In addition, minor injuries and lesions can occur due to overexertion and/or overuse which massage can break down quickly and effectively.

Medical massage, an advanced form of massage therapy, is a result oriented treatment which is specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed and prescribed by a Physician. The therapist may use a variety of modalities or procedures during the treatment, but will focus the Medical Massage treatment only on the areas of the body related to the diagnosis and prescription.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractors are usually extremely proficient in the practice of NAT.

What is Bowen Therapy?

This technique was invented by an Australian osteopath called Tom Bowen in the 1950s. A review of his work carried out in 1975 found that he treated 13,000 patients annually, and that he had an 85% success rate on many different conditions. This led to great interest in the treatment. Towards the end of his life, he agreed to have six practitioners observe him and learn his method. One of the therapists, Oswald Rentsch, took detailed notes and pioneered the spread of Bowen Therapy. He also coined the name "Bowen Technique". It is sometimes referred to as Fascial Therapy, Smart Bowen, Fascial Kinetics, Neuro-structural Integration (NST), Fascial Bowen and Bowenwork.

Today, the technique is used in over 30 countries around the world by approximately 26,000 therapists.

What is Sports Massage?

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) and joints of the body, involving a range of techniques. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate, & relieve pain. Stress and tension builds up in the body’s soft tissues during both physical activity and everyday wear and tear. In addition, minor injuries and lesions can occur due to overexertion and/or overuse which massage can break down quickly and effectively.

Sports Massage is an ever-growing field and trainers believe that massage can provide an edge to the athletes who participate in high performance sports. Massage has become a necessary ingredient for a complete workout. More and more people are realizing that a complete workout routine should include not only the exercise itself, but also caring for the wear-and-tear and minor injuries that naturally occur with strenuous movement. Sports massage can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger. The physiological and psychological benefits of massage make it an ideal complement to a total conditioning program.
