Manual Therapies Definitions

Zero Balancing - “the desired outcome of a Zero Balancing session is to help relieve physical and mental symptoms; to improve the ability to deal with life stresses; to organize vibratory fields thereby promoting the sense of wholeness and well being.”

CranioSacral Therapy –“CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the cranio-sacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord.”

Visceral Manipulation - “VM is based on the specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera (organs) and their connective tissues. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functioning of the organs, the systems the organs function within and the structural integrity of the entire body”

Lymph Drainage - “Lymph Drainage is a type of gentle massage which encourages the natural circulation of the lymph through the body. It is useful in stimulating the lymph to remove toxins, excess water and waste products from the body.”

Trigger Point Therapy - “A body work technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain. It is manual stimulation of a taut muscle band, said to interrupt the neural signals that cause pain. In this technique, the swelling and stiffness of the neuromuscular pain can be reduced, range of motion can be increased and flexibility and coordination are improved.”

Myofascial Therapies - "Physical treatment methods applied to skeletal muscles and their connective tissues."
