Massage Therapy is one of the oldest methods of healing. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, maintain, or rehabilitate physical function or relieve pain. Massage uses a variety of techniques to improve the health and condition of muscles, joints, and connective tissue. Massage therapy is widely accepted as a natural therapy to achieve and maintain wellness.
Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. Its aim is to positively affect the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. The therapy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care. Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body, to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented soft tissue movement based technique. ART treats scar tissue in muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascial, and nervous system. Scar tissue occurs from acute, overuse, or hypoxia conditions which builds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. This can cause decrease in motion, loss of strength, or pain. An ART session will be a combination of examination and treatment of each client's individual needs.
Craniosacral therapy focuses primarily on the concept of 'primary respiration' and regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using therapeutic touch to manipulate the joints of the cranium. This involves the therapist to apply light touches to a client's skull, face, spine, and pelvis. This therapy can relieve symptoms of stress and tension in the body.
Bowen technique helps balance the body using a series of precise movements on specific points of the body. There are frequent and important pauses between each series of movements giving the body time to benefit from each movement. The gentle movements on soft tissue stimulate physiological changes and energy flow, empowering the body's own resources to heal itself. The Bowen technique is safe to use on anyone from babies to the elderly, and produces lasting relief from pain and discomfort.

Physiotherapy is anchored in the science of human structure and movement; it aims to restore, maintain or enhance optimal strength, function, movement, and well-being. Physiotherapists consider the human body as a complex system and use a holistic approach to rehabilitate injuries or imbalances. Physiotherapy treatment involves a comprehensive program consisting of therapeutic exercises, manual therapy and client education.
