Cranial Sacral Therapy
A gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the
neurological system. The craniosacral system is comprised of numerous membranes, the spine, sacrum,
spinal cord, dural tissues, brain tissue, cranial sutures, diaphragms, and cerebral spinal fluid. Any
limitations to the system can affect the overall function of the neurological system and create numerous
symptoms which can be relieved by this therapy.

Visceral Manipulation
A gentle hands-on manual therapy to the abdominal region. The treatment
utilizes gentle compression, mobilization, and elongation of the soft tissues. These gentle manipulations
can potentially improve functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the
structural integrity of the entire body.

Vestibular Rehabilitation
various treatment approaches that primarily address Benign Paroxysmal
Positional Vertigo (BPPV) with Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers. Also gaze stabilization exercises,
balance retraining, gait training, and fall prevention activities are commonly utilized to help patents with
reports of imbalance, dizziness, vertigo, fall history, and difficulty with movements not related to pain.

Spinal and Joint Manipulations
Manual treatment that uses a high velocity low amplitude trust to
restore movement and reduce muscle and neurological irritation.

Facial Cupping
A technique that utilizes pressure cups to physically stretch connective tissue away from
the body and improve circulation.

Graston techniques or “Gau Sha” scrapping
Treatment that utilizes a tool to physically disrupt hypertonic tissue, scar tissue, or areas with limited ROM.

Muscle Energy Techniques (MET)
MET is a type of osteopathic manipulative treatment used in osteopathic
medicine and physical therapy. It is a non-invasive direct hands on technique used to treat somatic
dysfunction. MET helps to normalize joint motion, increase range of motion, decrease muscle tightness,
increase muscle strength, balance ligament length, improve circulation, decrease nerve tension, and
reduce pain.

Strain counter strain
A positional trigger point release technique.

Dry needling
A form of treatment utilizing acupuncture needles inserted into muscle trigger points, along
nerve pathways, and tendon junctions to stimulate healing, reduce nerve irritations, stimulate
circulation, and assist with pain management.

HVLAT (High Velocity Low Amplitude Thrust)
Mobilization techniques to quickly reposition joints in the body back into their proper position.
