The Dolphin Neurotism is breakthrough in relieving and healing chronic conditions. The Dolphin is the world first hybrid device specifically designed for the treatment of acute and chronic pain. It applies a brief, concentrated microcurrent impulse to specific treatment points that naturally, regulates the autonomic nervous system, reduces stress and pain and stimulates the natural healing of the body.
The Dolphin was born in the 1980’s and it was the first-time science recognized how DC electro currents can positively influence the human body creating changes at cellular level in the organs, tissues and fascias. The traditional tens unit or other alternating current used in conventional therapy are different form what the body uses and that is why the beneficial effects do not last.
If you ‘ve suffered an injury or underwent a recent surgery, rehabilitation is an important part of your recovery. Vicky is dedicated to safely restore your normal strength, movement and flexibility, while reducing your inflammation and your pain. You will get a personalized home exercise program in order to enable you to return to your daily activities as soon as possible.
Manual therapy is the “hands on” treatment moving the joints in specific directions to regain movement. Specific soft tissue techniques are also used to improve the mobility and fonctionning of tissues, nerves and muscles. In addition, Vicky is a Reiki practionner with over 8 years of experience, the natural healing energy of her touch can be felt contributing to a faster recovery and an improved sense of well-being.
The kinesio taping method is a technique that is designed to facilitate, support and improve the stability of the muscles and joints without restricting the movement. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, the taping alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation or Simply IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. The technique itself is said to be a modern evolution from Traditional Chinese Medicine called Gua Sha.However Gua Sha was not used to treat Musculoskeletal conditions but was traditionally applied along meridiens to move the bad chi out through the skin.IASTM is a is a procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency while remaining non-invasive,with its own indications and limitations.
IASTM is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration. As in any Manual therapy treatment ,supplementation with exercises and additional modalities e.g. joint mobilization designed to correct biomechanical deficiencies by addressing musculoskeletal strength and muscle imbalances throughout the entire kinetic chain should be used in conjunction with IASTM.
The term “massage therapy” includes many techniques, and the type of massage given usually depends on your needs and physical condition.
A lot of the scientific research on massage therapy is preliminary or conflicting, but much of the evidence points toward beneficial effects on pain and other symptoms associated with a number of different conditions. Much of the evidence suggests that these effects are short term and that people need to keep getting massages for the benefits to continue.
Fluidity and ease of movement is a result of using your muscles in an efficient and appropriate way. When you don’t move correctly, this pulls you out of alignment causing injury. The body wants to stay upright, be symmetrical, and be in harmony. Therefore, it will do whatever it needs to do to maintain homeostasis. This is why the core, using your muscles appropriately, and alignment are so important.
Let’s say you can do an exercise to one side but not as well to the other, you have created a muscle imbalance. The body will then go to the side of least resistance, meaning you will continue to strengthen the strong side, which will continue to weaken the opposite side of the body. If turning to the left is much harder than the right, you are probably not efficiently recruiting the correct muscles and the movement becomes stilted because you are asking other muscles to do what they are not meant to do. As this continues, you are setting yourself up for injury. Repeat this over and again, you create weaknesses until the body says “enough”.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
