Myofascial Release Techniques
These techniques consist of sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to eliminate fascial (connective tissue) restrictions. Restrictions are located through visual analysis and palpation of the tissue. Myofascial release techniques can be an effective therapeutic approach for many issues including: cervical pain, back pain, scoliosis, restriction of motion, chronic pain, and headaches.
Neuromuscular therapy is a soft-tissue manipulation often used to: locate and release spasms and hypercontraction in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, rebuild the strength of injured tissues, assist venous and lymphatic flow, restore postural alignment and proper biomechanics and flexibility to the tissues.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, noninvasive method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological body arrangement called the craniosacral system.

It assists with many issues including: chronic pain, eye difficulties, scoliosis, motor-coordination impairments, learning disabilities, and other dysfunctions of the central nervous system.
