A traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body. This therapeutic technique aims to stimulate energy flow, or "qi," within the body, promoting balance and facilitating the body's natural healing processes. Acupuncture is known for its effectiveness in addressing various physical and mental health concerns, providing a holistic approach to wellness.
A specialized type of myofascial release, ART treats soft tissue by combining manipulation and movement. It addresses problems with nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments and is more targeted than traditional MFR. Typically treatments are 3-5 sessions twice per week. Shorter sessions are common and longer sessions combining ART with MFR and other modalities (i.e. deep tissue, cupping, CST) can be very effective. ART is specifically used for soft tissue conditions resulting from repetitive overuse and injury including sports, computer work, service work, and physical labor.
Myofascial (my-o-FASH-e-ul) release is a highly effective manual therapy treatment that restores soft tissue health and consequently relieves tension and improves movement. It is performed without lubricants and uses sustained pressure and tension to free restrictions within the connective tissue. MFR facilitates permanent changes in soft tissue pliability, organization, movement, and function. It addresses the interconnectedness of the whole body, improving systemic tension to relieve specific discomfort. Typically, treatments once or twice per week for 2-3 weeks is recommended for sustained results leading to optimal physical health and rebalance.
Uses a gentle, soft touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system to release restrictions that inhibit optimal functioning. This subtle but potent work supports many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.
Cupping uses silicone, glass, or plastic suction cups to stimulate the healing process and relieve muscle tension by lifting the skin and increasing blood flow to the applied area. It can help with chronic pain and inflammation.
TMJ Treatment is an intra-oral massage therapy that alleviates tension and sometimes pain in the facial area and around the jaw. The neck, head, and facial muscles may be manually manipulated to alleviate tension in TMJ trigger points. Most often, intra-oral (within the mouth) techniques are performed with a sterile glove to adequately reach all of the muscles and areas that factor into TMJ pain and dysfunction.
Reflexology connects the pathways between pressure points and other parts of the body. This type of therapy focuses on your feet by applying different levels of pressure to certain areas. Reflexology works with the central nervous system to reduce pain, reduce stress, and enhance circulation. It complements all other healing modalities.
Sports Massage is aimed to reduce pain, release tension, improve range of motion, and promote good muscle condition. Pre and post event massages are beneficial to maximize performance and help with recovery. Sports massage can alleviate soreness in the muscles when used immediately after an event. All our therapists provide this treatment.
Centers on realigning the deeper layers of connective and muscle tissue using cream or oils to glide. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the tense areas, either following or going across the fiber‘s of the muscles, tendons and fascia. At YOUU-NESS, Deep Tissue is commonly performed after MFR to increase circulation and help remove toxins to aid in recovery.
Also known as Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), scraping is used to help break down scar tissue and adhesions and reduce fascial restrictions that inhibit range of motion. It is a manual therapy that uses metal, jade, or quartz instruments to effectively massage or “scrape” the affected area. Some examples of scraping are Graston and Gua Sha.
The Feldenkrais (FEL-duhn-krayz) Method is a somatic, or body-oriented, intervention designed to help people reconnect with their bodies and learn ways to move and live more gracefully, efficiently, and sustainably. You can experience the Feldenkrais Method in two ways. Awareness through Movement® lessons are taught in a group setting, with students following the verbal instructions of the teacher. Functional Integration® sessions are one on one lessons where the fully clothed student is guided through touch, movement and verbal instruction. Movements are very gentle, relaxing, easy, and pleasurable.
