Chiropractic treatment is used to treat musculoskeletal conditions affecting the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues. Chiropractic is an alternative medical treatment, taking a different approach from conventional medicine in diagnosing and treating health conditions. Chiropractors use hands-on therapy (called manipulation or adjustment) to treat clients.
Massage therapy can treat a variety of conditions, including back pain, headaches and migraines, stress, arthritis, tendonitis, muscle spasms, sprains and strains, repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, circulatory problems, respiratory problems, and post surgical rehabilitation. Massage therapy is effective at reducing stress and increasing relaxation.
Shiatsu massage is different from the traditional relaxation massage. The therapist detects blocks in pathways of the body, which can present as pain or tightness in various meridians of the body. The practitioner uses physical massage techniques and acupressure to relieve physical, mental and emotional blockages in the meridians, helping an individual improve balance.
Reflexology is similar to shiatsu but involves the feet and sometimes the head and hands. The reflexologists stimulates different organs in the body by touching points on the feet, allowing the entire body to function better as a whole.
Reiki involves the transfer of energy from the practitioner's hands to the patient's body. This aids the body in relaxation and encourages the brain to enter an alpha rhythm state, effectively slowing it down. The body becomes calm and is able to heal and repair whatever is needed. Reiki is a tranquil and peaceful process.
