Craniosacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on method for evaluating and correcting problems affecting the craniosacral system.  The craniosacral system provides the environment in which your brain and spinal cord develop and function.  These organs are the core of your being.  Without them, senses, emotions and motor functions would be inoperable.  Examination is done by testing for movements in various parts of the system.  When testing is concluded and the restricting obstacle removed, the system is able to return to its natural state.  Many conditions respond to this form of treatment.

Active Release Technique (A.R.T.)

ART is a patented, stat-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.  Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.  These conditions all have one important thing in common, they are often a result of overused muscles. 

Diversified Adjustment Technique

This is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques and is the one most familiar to patients.  The diversified adjustment entails a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust that usually results in a cavitation of a joint (quick, shallow thrusts that causes a popping noise often associated with a chiropractic adjustment).  As the name implies, the diversified technique can be used to adjust many of the joints of the body.
