(Electro- Therapeutic Stimulator)
This therapy allows us to detect areas of treatment on the the skin surface. After detection, a fast intensified healing response is achieved by applying concentrated micro-stimulation to trigger, motor and accu–points.
This treatment can be used on both acute or chronic pain areas.
MAT / GRASTON
(Myofascial Adhesion Therapy)
This therapy is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques.
Gua Sha or “scraping away” provides micro-stimulation of the surface tissue. Whether using modern stainless steel tools (Graston) or traditional stones/horns, we are able to effectively breakdown scar tissues and fascial adhesions. The techniques allow us to treat areas that show soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. This therapy can be used on acute or chronic tissue injuries.
With cupping massage we create a vacuum to loosen tight muscles by lifting the connective tissue. This technique then allows hydration and blood flow to the tissues. Toxins will be released, excess fluids drained and deep inflammation moved out of the trapped muscle tissue.
