In our current healthcare climate, patients are often rushed in and out of their doctor appointments. When this happens, there is little time to place your hands on the patient and not only communicate that you know where they are hurting, but that you will in fact treat the source of the pain. Making physical contact with a client is crucial in building trust, which is the necessary foundation for any healing to take place. Because every session is an hour, there is always time for manual therapy. Specifically, this includes (but is not limited to) massage, soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilizations, joint manipulations, traction, muscle energy techniques, PNF, myo-fascial release and trigger point therapy. Having manual therapy is not only an act of self-care—it is also an excellent way to promote whole body wellness and injury prevention.
