Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)

Neuromuscular Therapy is a hands-on deep tissue bodywork. This body work retrains muscles that have a decreased blood flow, releases nerves that have possibly been entrapped by the hyper-contracted muscle tissue and returns the body’s natural flow of energy to the soft tissue. Good blood flow to the muscles delivers nutrients and oxygen.

Trigger points are sought out and erased during NMT. A trigger point is the point of strongest motor return from the spinal cord back to the muscle. These are located at the strongest motor return point from the spinal cord back to the muscle. Trigger points receive messages from the brain to contract and this focus of metabolic accumulation becomes a small mass of drawn up muscle fiber which is tender to pressure. These trigger points have command over the pain and the tension of the muscles. By manually disengaging these trigger points a resistance is built up along the nerve pathway and the results leave the patient free from pain with the body returning to normal neurological integrity and balance.

Neuromuscular Therapy is also very healing when used along with Chiropractic adjustments. It has been noted in this office that by releasing all soft tissue around the structure, Chiropractic adjustments hold longer, thus aiding in the healing process.

Receiving Neuromuscular Therapy allows the individual to maintain total integrity and privacy. Partial disrobing is required in most cases and draping is done for the client’s privacy.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

Many seek CranioSacral Therapy after having tried just about everything else and they do finally find freedom from the discomfort they’ve been experiencing. Many documented success stories during the past 20 years have brought international recognition to CranioSacral Therapy as a medically effective therapy, most notably the Egyptian conjoined twins that were attached at the top of their heads. CranioSacral Therapy helped in the preparation for the separation surgery, as well as in assisting them in the healing process that followed. Your body knows how to heal itself and this therapy simply assists and encourages that process.

The gentle touch of CranioSacral Therapy works by helping the body’s natural healing mechanisms dissipate the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system. Non-invasive techniques used to release restrictions and dysfunction restoring normal circulation in the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes and nourishes the brain and spinal cord. In this process the immune system is enhanced, the central nervous system is influenced; metabolic byproducts, waste and toxic molecules that contribute to brain deterioration and dis-ease are removed.

So what is a typical CranioSacral Therapy session like at the Essential Wellness Center? The peaceful healing rooms are filled with soft lighting, relaxing music, which develop an atmosphere that quickly dissipates stress. Therapy is performed on a fully clothed person who rest on a comfortable sound massage table for approximately an hour. People often report after treatments that significant changes take place and that they are better able to handle life’s stresses.

SomatoEmotional Release (SER)

SomatoEmotional Release involves a process designed to rid your mind and body of the residual effects of past injuries and negative experiences. In response to an injury the body often retains the forces of that injury and must adapt to this deposit of abnormal physical force. The adaptive response is to “wall off” the abnormal force so that an “energy cyst” is formed. What this amounts to is ions and molecules moving in disorganized and chaotic ways so that they are NOT performing their usual work and NOT serving the whole body efficiently. As the years pass and the body has to continue over working to compensate for this problem area, it begins to lose some of its effectiveness and problems begin to be noticed.

SER is a hands-on solution that helps the body and mind eliminate the effects of these past traumas and the negative responses associated with them even if it was emotional trauma. Through a series of therapeutic steps, we help you release the impact from these unpleasant experiences.

Long-term Benefits:

  • Overall better health
  • Reduction of stress
  • Enhanced sense of well-being for more joy and happiness

For many clients, this approach has proven helpful with overcoming:

  • Chronic pain
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorders

Raindrop Technique (RT)

This technique was developed during the 1980’s and was based on research with essential oils as antimicrobial agents. The use of these undiluted oils is consistent with the French model for aromatherapy which is the most extensive practiced and studied model in the world with more than 40 years of experience. RT is a powerful, non-invasive tool for assisting the body in correcting defects in the curvature of the spine by utilizing the antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory action of several key essential oils. By integrating VitaFlex and massage, the power of essential oils brings the body into structural and electrical alignment.

RT assists in the release from the body of microorganisms and virus-like particles that lodge near the spinal cord, thus eliminating their contribution to deformities. In many cases back surgery has been avoided due to the success of this therapy. These oils represent a new frontier of medicine and have resolved cases that many professionals had regarded as hopeless.
