MANUAL THERAPY

 

This is most well known yet widely misunderstood form of complimentary therapy. Few know that when properly utilized by experienced and well-trained practitioner massage becomes much more than "feel good" procedure and is a very powerful clinical tool. In many countries including Russia massage is only taught to qualified health care practitioners.
We use wide variety of Eastern and Western styles and techniques.
Among them:

Russian Medical Massage

Swedish massage
Employs set sequences of 5 classic massage strokes progressively involving deeper tissues. Excellent in promoting relaxation, reliving muscle soreness and improving circulation.

Manual therapy
Variety of western and oriental techniques which involve not just soft tissues, but bones and joints. Western techniques include post isometric relaxation, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.

Reflexology
Also known as zone therapy, is the practice of stimulating points on the feet and hands, in the belief it will have a beneficial effect on some other parts of the body, or will improve general health. The most common form is foot reflexology. The reflex zones are organized in a way that represents the whole body. The foot is divided into a number of reflex zones corresponding to all parts of the body, and applying pressure to tight or "gritty" areas of a person's foot will stimulate the corresponding body part and cause it to begin healing itself. Application is done through thumb, finger and hand technique. Reflex areas, like hand and foot, composed of 7200 nerve endings are stimulated by pressure applied. An improved instruction to every gland, single part and organ of the body could be achieved by such a health science. The body is then pursue a biologically correct, strengthened and reinforced state. There may be discomfort in some places, but it is fleeting, and also an indication of congestion or imbalance in a corresponding part of the body. For the most part, the sensation is pleasant and soothing. A course of treatment varies in length depending on the need of the client body. We will discuss this with the patient at the first session.
