Chiropractic care is a patient-centered, non-invasive, hands-on, regulated health care profession focusing on the spine, muscles, joints and nervous system.
SCOPE OF PRACTICE
The assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain.
What To expect
During your first visit, you can expect your RMT to:
Summarize the treatment;
Explain why you need the treatment;
Tell you the benefits of the treatment;
Communicate any potential risks arising from the treatment;
Suggest other courses of action; and
Describe the likely consequence(s) of not having the treatment.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage will work out the knots from stressed, overworked muscles and connective tissue (fascia) to alleviate immediate pain, as well as chronic joint and muscle pain. It also promotes faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation
Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.
Light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system without pressing hard on the vessel. They make the lymph fluid move easily through the nodes and tissues, making sure the fluid doesn't get trapped anywhere. It also helps relieve painful swelling in your arms and legs caused by lymphedema.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on technique that uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.
Hot Stone Massage
This treatment helps relieve tension, eases muscle stiffness, and increases circulation. Hot stone therapy promotes healing by targeting the deeper layers of muscle through the use of heated stones. Combined with regular massage, this treatment delivers a wealth of benefits.
