Naturopath, Myopractic & Bowen Therapist
Myopractic therapy aims to promote harmony and balance by working on muscles and connective tissues. The treatment relieves pain in a short time while preventing injury in the future.
There are three main types of bodywork in myopractic:
- Stretching with compression is focused on achieving deep relaxation, relieving muscle spasms, and releasing tension in the muscles
- Clearing aids in removing nodules, scar tissues, trigger points, muscle knots, and old bruises from soft tissues
- Using separation helps reduce muscle tension, release fascial adhesions, and balance muscles
Among the many conditions a myopractor can treat are:
- Muscle spasms
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Digestive problems
- Respiratory issues
- Back and neck pain
- Sports-related injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Menstrual issues
In Bowen therapy, treatment is gentle and relaxing and does not involve manipulating the body.
Through a gentle rolling movement, tight muscles, and ligaments are relaxed. Practitioners engage muscles in affected areas with their thumbs and fingers and roll toward the spine.
The emphasis is placed on the areas of stress in the body, usually the back of the legs, glutes, upper back region, and the small of the back.
Bowen Therapy can help an individual recover from a variety of conditions, including injuries and chronic illnesses, depending on their capacity for healing.
It’s effective in treating musculoskeletal problems like ankle, knee, back, and neck pain, but it can also help with several conditions:
- Frozen Shoulder
- Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)
- Facial or dental pain
- Problems associated with blood pressure
- Sleep disorders
- Sports injuries
- Respiratory issues
- Migraines/ Headaches
- Digestive disorders
- Bladder issues
During the assessment, the Bowen therapist will ask about your pain and discomfort.
After which, a series of movements will be applied, followed by a pause to allow the body to naturally heal itself.
A typical session lasts 30 minutes to an hour. Chronic conditions may require follow-up sessions.
Sports Injury Therapy
A sports injury therapy focuses on healing injured muscles, joints, ligaments or tendons due to sports activities.
While treating the affected area, this technique involves stretching, strengthening, and mobility exercises.
The benefits of this therapy are not limited to athletes; everyone who has been injured or suffered trauma can also benefit from it.
Sports injury treatment begins with a thorough assessment and diagnosis by a certified therapist.
Various methods such as ice packs, compression, and elevation may be used by the practitioner once the root of the problem is identified.
Sports injury therapists can treat the following conditions:
- Knees and hand injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Shoulder dislocation
- Ankle sprain
- Groin pull
- Shin splints
- Hamstring strain
- Postoperative injuries
Regular visits to an experienced therapist will keep your body in tip-top shape and eliminate your pain for good, regardless of whether you’re an elite athlete or simply suffering from musculoskeletal pain.
