(old) Techniques & Tools
Often times you hear therapists say, “I do Swedish” or “I do Rolfing”. For me it’s hard to label exactly what I do because what I do is “Custom-fitted” to each individual’s body. First, I ask, what are the physical, chemical and emotional imblances causing the client dis-ease and how to we best approach theses imbalances? Do we treat through therapy, through diet or through both? Whatever the case is, I always incorporate techniques that get the quickest and fastest results specific for your health issues, health goals and health concerns.
The main techniques I use are as follows:
This modality incorporates the nervous system, structure and muscular system to treat the ENTIRE body…that is the whole body instead of just focusing on muscles or just structure or just nerves. This technique is very effective in getting, and maintaining, long-term results by pinpointing the muscle groups that are needing the most work and by pinpointing the muscle groups that may need to be avoided for the time being due to injury.
Vacuflex and Meridican Therapy
Vacuflex Therapy is using a machine that does two major things: booting and cupping. First, when using the “boots” the machine hits all the reflex and meridian points in the feet to treat the body. On top of that, the boots help to boost immunity, stimulate all the organs through the reflexes in the feet, oxygenate the body and move blood and lymph. When the boots are removed from the feet, the feet will then show colors that associate with imbalances in ones body. With this “reading” we can help clients determine why their health is poor or why they are experiencing the symptoms they are. The cupping is very similar to accupuncture but instead of using needles, we use suction cups. These helps to enhance the effects of any treatment when the body needs an extra “boost” but is either too sensitive or in a chronic state of inflammation. the vacuflex machine can help decipher imbalances in ones body while also detoxifying the client and rejuvenating them. Vacuflex machines are extremely rare in the United States but are widely used in Europe, Australia, and South Africa. In the picture displayed here this client’s feet showed that she was getting very sick very quickly. In fact, her body was in the process of fighting off a virus and it was losing. The very next day the viral infection hit her hard. Luckily we caught this in time and we were able to give her the herbs and supplements that would aid in a quick recovery.

Exercise is KEY to keeping your body young and healthy. Unfortunately our body will encounter “glitches” or minor mishaps that, if not dealt with soon, WILL lead to further chronic injury. Sports massage is often needed to help maintain optimal function in our body so that we can continue to do those things we love to do everyday, whether it’s cycling, climbing, running, hiking, or just picking up your kids. In order to keep our “engines” running smoothly and for a long time it is vital that we strives to prevent sports injuries before they start. Sports massage can help those who wish to maintain their physical activity load at maximum capacity!
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhaling 100%oxygen in a total body chamber, while atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments to help aid and speed up the bodies own ability to heal itself faster and aid in immunity. Hundreds of studies are coming out yearly proving the momentous effects of oxygen therapy on a myriad of disease and health issues.
Hyperthermic Ozone & Carbonic Acid Transdermal Therapy (AKA HOCATT)
The HOCATT is a chamber designed to detoxify an individual from unwanted toxins that have accumulated over time. The HOCATT acts as a personal ozone steam sauna, in which a person sits with just his/her head exposed to room air, while the body receives the benefits of infusion through the skin of medical grade ozone, carbonic acid, steam, infra-red light, photon light therapy, oxygen and aroma therapy. There are also TENS unit like programs that can treat painful areas. This sauna treatment is now in use in over 20 countries. It is safe, pleasant and effective for all people seeking vibrant health or pain control.
