Magnetic Therapy

This non-invasive and safe modality applies magnetic fields to the body for therapeutic purposes. It uses magnets on and around the acupuncture points of your body to improve circulation and rejuvenate body tissue. Imbalanced electromagnetic energy can result in illnesses. Magnets can help to correct the flow of this energy. Something as simple as wearing a magnet bracelet on your wrist can restore the recuperative or self-healing powers of your body.

This basic form of communication does not require verbal cues. With practice, you are able to expand your movement vocabulary and make a body-mind connection to enhance communication skills, develop a better body image, and improve relationships.

Music Therapy

This established and effective treatment modality uses music to treat a wide variety of physical and mental disorders. It involves systematic application of music to produce relaxation and desired changes in emotions, behavior and physiology. When you listen to music, your mind relaxes. This relaxed state of the mind arouses and releases deep feelings and you experience physical or psychological relief.

Music Therapy can be used to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals of all ages.  Music therapy improves the quality of life for persons who are well and meets the needs of children and adults with disabilities or illnesses.  Music therapy interventions can be designed to promote wellness, manage stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, enhance memory, improve communication, and promote physical rehabilitation.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a massage technique using sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.  Fascia is a thin tissue that covers every muscle and every fiber within each muscle.  When muscles are injured, the fibers and their fascia become shortened and tight transmitting stress to other parts of the body, causing pain in areas you often wouldn't expect.  Myofascial Release treats these symptoms by releasing the uneven tightness in injured fascia.
