ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS (continued)
Pain in our bodies is often a result of repetitive holding patterns that we have developed as a result of repeated and reflexive response to stress such as accidents, injuries, surgeries and repetitive tasks. The resulting patterns of muscular contraction that develop result in such common conditions as chronic back, neck, hip, shoulder or joint pain and limited mobility. Somatic Re-education is used to help re-train the brain in order to regain awareness and motor control of muscles.
Touch for Health
Touch for Health is a system utilizing applied Energy Kinesiology along with acupressure, neurolymphatic points, neurovascular points, spinal reflexes and meridian tracing to improve postural balance and reduce physical pain and tension.
Polarity therapy uses many techniques including cranial holds, rocking movements, some techniques similar to reflexology, and some techniques derived from osteopathy and chiropractic, but with an energetic rather than manipulative focus. Polarity Therapy is based on the idea that dysfunction in the body is caused by imbalance in the body's energy flow, so the practitioner works to facilitate the movement of body energy.
Created by Australian Tom Bowen in the 50's, Bowenwork is a complete anti-inflammatory
treatment system designed to change the
paradigm of inflammatory reaction in both
acute and chronic disease. Bowenwork
therapy helps to "trick" the body to letting go
of its stuck patterns of inflammatory reaction.
