Bundles of light energy pass through the dermal layers, and are received within the cell membrane by specific energy photo acceptors.
Neuromuscular Massage TherapyNeuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is an approach to soft tissue manual therapy in which quasi-static pressure is applied to soft tissue to stimulate skeletal striated muscle. It is known to be the most effective type of massage therapy for pain anywhere in the body. The American Academy of Pain Management recognizes this form of bodywork as an effective treatment for pain associated with soft tissue injury.
Orthopedic Rehabilitation with C.H.E.K Certified TherapyC.H.E.K Practitioners are highly-trained with knowledge and skills necessary to work with you to achieve optimal results. They will develop a high-performance corrective exercise program for you to achieve optimal results from your injury.
Active Release Therapy (ART)ART is a patented, state-of-the-art system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. When an injury occurs, it produces abnormal texture, tension, and length in the affected tissues. The result is pain, reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and decreased athletic performance. In ART treatment, the practitioner identifies exactly which tissues are affected in each patient. Then, the practitioner applies carefully selected ART treatment protocols to restore the tissue to its normal texture, tension, and length. There are over 500 ART protocols. Each one is a combination of precisely directed tension and very specific patient movements.
