Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a type of soft tissue therapy that identifies areas of dysfunction known as "trigger points", specific areas of tenderness. When pressure is applied, there is local tenderness and sensations felt elsewhere in the body. While pressure is maintained on these points, the tenderness diminishes.
NMT is used to:
~ Relieve pain
~ Restore normal function to damaged tissue
~ Re-educate the nervous system
It is extremely effective in treating chronic pain conditions such as Fibromyalgia and TMJ disorder.
Foot Reflexology approaches the whole body as an interrelated system, reflected and mapped out on the feet. Specific nerve endings on the feet are manipulated by applying pressure. This produces a reaction in another area of the body. The feet have over 7,000 nerve endings making them extremely responsive.
~ Relieves tension
~ Improves circulation
~ Normalizes body functions
~ Clears nerve pathways
~ Aids in balancing the entire body for the health and wellness of the body, mind and spirit.

Rolfing is a type of therapeutic bodywork that uses soft tissue manipulation and movement education to balance the body in gravity. Dr. Ida P. Rolf, who received her PhD in biochemistry from Columbia University in 1920, spent decades developing this system of bodywork, which she named “Structural Integration.” Dr. Rolf recognized that chronic strain in the body, whether caused by injury, poor posture or stress, results in patterns of imbalance that affect overall health and well-being.
How does Rolfing work? The muscles in the body function in pairs, and, when one is more strained than it’s opposite the tissue tends to shorten in that area. The connective tissue (fascia) that wraps around the muscles holds the shortened position, creating an imbalance. Rolfing works to loosen the tightened connective tissue allowing the muscles to return to balance bringing the body back into alignment.
