Bodywork Modalities

Today's world of bodywork and massage comes in numerous modalities with many names. They all bring something to the table, but what works for one person might not work for somebody else. One size does NOT fit all!

The steps for optimal treatment

In order to provide the optimal treatment for each unique client it is essential to have a profound understanding of structural and functional anatomy and physiology of the human body. Equipped with this knowledge we don’t rely strictly on techniques, but rather have a foundation to assess and to make appropriate choices for how to treat each individual. In our clinic we utilize several different modalities, often in combination, in order to create the best possible treatment process for each client.

The most frequently used techniques are described here, starting with Eric Daltons’ Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques. This method builds on osteopathic manipulations as well as Rolfing and Myofascial Release. It is a gentle, yet efficient, way to align skeletal and myofascial imbalances and obtain pain relief. The second modality, Neuromuscular Therapy targets myofascial trigger points. These can be a source of severe pain, and it is essential to release the trigger points in order to obtain optimal function. The third technique, Myofascial Release, can help iron out myofascial imbalances and break up fascial adhesions. This facilitates pain relief and freedom of movement.

By using these manual modalities in combination with biomechanically correct movements we can make weak muscles stronger, tight muscles longer and joints off balance realigned.
