Sometimes more than massage is required to relax tense muscles and ease joint stiffness. An Orthotherapist is trained in Swedish massage and kinesitherapy techniques- gentle stretching and joint mobilization- and is able to bring an added dimension to the release of tension. The stretching and mobilizations that are performed are always within your range of comfort and never beyond. Orthotherapy may be combined with other techniques, including hydrotherapy, cataplasm, clay, mud and essential oil body wraps, as well as with vibration and elongation (gentle traction).

Orthotherapy is beneficial on its own or as a complement to other health care services. As part of a comprehensive treatment program, it will maximize the benefits of all therapies involved. Orthotherapists welcome the opportunity to work with other professionals in easing chronic problems, and can help with a speedy recovery from injury or surgery.

Active Release Therapy (A.R.T.) is a soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique used to treat strained and over-used muscles. It is effective in the quick and permanent resolution of problems such as headache, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sciatica and plantar fasciitis, to name but a few.

Every A.R.T. session combines both examination and treatment. The therapist evaluates the condition of the affected area, and then treats abnormal tissues by using directed tension in combination with specific patient movements.

Lomi Lomi massage is an ancestral healing art of the Polynesian islands, predominately Hawaii. The Lomi Lomi massage is considered one of the most relaxing of all body work therapies, with fluid movements that are felt throughout the body like ocean waves. This form of massage gently detoxifies the body due to the effect on blood circulation. The use of smooth, heated stones to massage the muscles creates a deep and extraordinary sense of relaxation, which nurtures and invigorates the body, mind and spirit.

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle and effective hands-on technique that balances and enhances the proper functioning of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is essential to our body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues, filter toxins and foreign by-products, recover vital substances that have escaped the blood, and maintain a healthy immune system. The therapist works with flat hands, using all the fingers to simulate wave-like movements.
