It is also an excellent rehab alternative for those with back injuries.

Our women's health program deals with specialized needs of women. It can include incontinence, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and other individualized needs of women.

Learn how to do exercises correctly and if your muscles are weak the therapist may also use biofeedback, electrical stimulation and special exercises.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on therapy that focuses on balancing and aligning the musculoskeletal system. The goal is to release compression in the affected areas which alleviates stress and pain. Since the craniosacral system directly impacts the central nervous system, it’s easy to see how an imbalance there could cause any number of sensory, motor or neurological disabilities. CST seeks to restore the natural position of the bones and can decrease stress from chronic injuries as well as provide relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and more.
Occupational therapy promotes health by enabling people to perform meaningful and purposeful activities by using hands on and skilled techniques. Occupational therapists work with children and adults who suffer from a mentally, physically, developmentally, and/or emotionally disabling condition by utilizing treatments that develop, recover, or maintain clients activities of daily living. The therapist helps clients not only to improve their basic motor functions and reasoning abilities, but also to compensate for permanent loss of function. The ultimate goal of occupational therapy is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives. Our occupational therapist is certified in lymphedema and hand therapy.
Individuals experiencing elevated stress levels, especially chronic stress. Also, those who have experienced traumatic injury related to occupation, weight lifting physical labor, sports, or accidents recently or in the past would benefit from massage. Often individuals performing repetitive motion or having poor body mechanics resulting in pain might appropriately seek a neuromuscular massage for healing and muscle re-education. Alongside physical therapy, neuromuscular massage improves the muscle's response to appropriate stretching and exercise. Massage therapy works to enable the body's natural ability to heal itself.
