Therapies

How can we treat such a wide range of conditions?

Our therapists are constantly upgrading and expanding their knowledge. Check out a few of the courses and specialties (click on one to learn more):

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

SER is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. SERI offers applications designed to enhance results using CST and other complementary therapies.

Brain Gym is a program of physical movements that enhance learning and performance in ALL areas. It includes 26 easy and enjoyable targeted activities that integrate body and mind to bring about rapid and often dramatic improvements in concentration, memory, reading, writing, organizing, listening, physical coordination, and more.

Hot stone massage has been used by many cultures for thousands of years. The application of heat to the body and the relaxing effects this has on muscles and the nervous system has been recognised by numerous ancient civilisations.

A Cupping Massage combines massage movements with negative pressure using a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The vacuum and suction effect increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxing muscle tissue, drawing stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releasing a myriad of pain causing factors.

Kinesiology is "the study of movement." Educational Kinesiology (or Edu-K) is the study and application of natural movement experiences to facilitate learning. It focuses on the performance of specific physical activities that activate the brain for optimal storage and retrieval of information.

Using exacting anatomical science and distinctive manual processes, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body. From there they can use their hands to perform Manual Lymphatic Mapping (MLM) of the vessels to assess overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining body-fluid stagnations.

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle hands-on therapy that works through the body's visceral system (the heart, liver, intestines and other internal organs) to locate and alleviate abnormal points of tension throughout the body.

Reciprocal Inhibition is when the therapist uses a client's muscle to stretch the opposing muscle.

An osteopathic technique which changes the interaction between dysfunctional vertebrae and reduces fascial tension and restores joint mobility.

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Myofascial Release is a highly specialized stretching technique used by physical therapists to treat patients with a variety of soft tissue problems.

The St. John Method of Neuromuscular Therapy is a highly effective treatment for ridding the body of pain. A St. John Therapist's primary goal in relieving pain is to first achieve structural balance in the body. They do this by looking at the body as a four-dimensional object, and using the techniques of the St. John Method to correct distortions in the horizontal, coronal and/or mid-sagittal planes of the body. These techniques are supported by scientific neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system initiates pain responses in the body. By understanding how pain originates and by being able to locate the source of pain in the body, St. John Neuromuscular Therapists treat the CAUSE of pain (primarily musculoskeletal dysfunction) not just the effects.

  • NMT 1: Cervical Injuries, Postural Analysis and Pelvic Stabilization
  • NMT 2: Pain Mechanisms of the Low Back
  • NMT 3: Shoulder, Upper Torso, Spinal Column and Extremities
  • NMT 4: TMJ Dysfunction, Hands, Feet and Eyes
  • NMT 5: Neuromuscular Components of Cranial Decompression and Scoliosis
  • NMT 7: Visceral Massage and Structural Balancing

Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.

It utilises the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and where applicable, work.

...and of course we also do relaxation massage!

These courses and special interests are over and above the basic 2200 hour training course requirement.
