Aches and pains are a part of life. For some of us, chronic issues have become all too familiar, interfering with our physical activity levels and overall health. It's not what physical ailments that come our way, but how we deal with them that can make the difference in the quality of our lives.
Together we create safe, effective and permanent solutions to pain that use nothing but your body’s own natural restorative abilities, including JFB Myofascial Release, MPS (Micropoint Stimulation), Visceral Manipulation, VNS (Vagal Nerve Stimulation) and Neuromodulation.( http://www.dolphinmps.com/ ) Regain control of your health without the use of drugs, surgery or manipulation. Give your body the opportunity and the direction it needs to heal, and you can once again find a pain-free and active life.
All of Integrative Therapies & Wellness custom therapeutic programs include JFB Myofascial Release techniques as a primary modality with the ultimate goal of restoring three-dimensional balance, improving function, minimizing pain, enhancing engagement in meaningful activity and returning individuals to an optimal life experience.
Your body’s design is perfect, but your lifestyle and activities can create limitations. Postural imbalances could be at the root of your pain/symptoms. Resulting from an old injury, hours of sitting behind a desk or behind the wheel, repetitive use injuries from exercise or work, or a postural dysfunction such as Scoliosis. We work with clients, using Posture Alignment Therapy, including the Rigo-Schroth Method, to help you understand and trust your bodies, identify the source of your pain/dysfunction, restore your postural alignment, and regain control of your physical and emotional lives. Your personalized program, when done consistently, becomes your plan for success, without pills, injections or surgery.
The pelvic floor is a complex group of muscles and other tissues that support the pelvic organs, which include the bladder, uterus, and rectum. Pelvic floor dysfunction, is the inability to control and coordinate the muscles of the pelvic floor, which can lead to pelvic pain, bowel and bladder elimination/control issues, pelvic organ prolapse and sexual complaints. Pelvic floor dysfunction is common and affects all ages. Many individuals describe their symptoms as “normal” due to age or having babies, however this should not be the case. Pelvic floor dysfunction is a very treatable condition. There are other options other than pads, medications or surgery.
Treatment interventions and duration will vary according to the nature of the condition or reason behind the dysfunction. Pelvic floor rehabilitation aims to normalize pelvic floor muscle tone (facilitate weak muscles or inhibit overactive muscles), increase muscle endurance and coordination which increases overall function. A pelvic floor in optimal condition will help prevent incontinence, provide support to pelvic organs and even improve your sex life!
Pelvic floor rehabilitation also helps women have active pain free pregnancies, optimal deliveries and improved postpartum recovery. Postpartum is forever, it's never too late to treat your body.
Treatment strategies may include biofeedback (computer assisted exercise) for pelvic floor muscles, retraining of uncoordinated muscles, postural training, behavioral interventions, strengthening, and stretching/restoration of muscle length and function through manual treatment.
Pelvic floor dysfunction can go untreated because it is often still considered a taboo subject or may be difficult to discuss due to past trauma. We are passionate about demystifying the pelvic floor and creating a safe space to discuss and learn about these common conditions and provide a mind/body healing experience.
Hormones play an integral role in your overall health at all ages. Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. Produced in the endocrine glands, these powerful chemicals travel around your bloodstream, telling tissues and organs what to do. They help control many of your body’s major processes, including metabolism and reproduction. When you have a hormonal imbalance, you have too much or too little of a certain hormone. Even tiny changes can have significant effects throughout your whole body, including but not limited to, insomnia, low libido, irregular periods, inflammation, migraines, mood swings, fatigue, acne and weight gain. Think of hormones like a cake recipe. Too much or too little of any one ingredient affects the final product. Even if you’ve been told your hormones are ‘normal’, that doesn’t mean they are optimal for your health. Reclaim your hormone health naturally through functional nutrition, targeted supplementation, stress reduction and lymphatic stimulation. Work with your body’s built-in healing mechanism to achieve the results you’re after.
