Motor Control and Function-Making Connections

 

NeuroKinetic Therapy®

NueroKinetic Therapy® or NKT® is a corrective movement system based on Motor Control Theory.  It is a way to assess for compensations which can lead to faulty movement patterns, and eventually pain, in specific areas or throughout the body. Once the relationships are found, the muscles which are compensating, can be released and the under active muscles reactivated to alleviate and eliminate causes of pain and dysfunction. 
Utilizing Manual Muscle Testing, I will assesses for muscle connection, strength and function.  Several massage techniques, including myofascial release, trigger point work, and deep tissue massage are then used to release the problematic tissues.
These interactive sessions involve client participation to discover and reverse problematic movement patterns which we develop over our lifetime.  These patterns can be related to injuries, surgeries, traumatic events, and the scars from them.  These treatments are specific to the individual, utilizing their history to guide the session.
Self care is then discussed, to empower the client, to continue the therapeutic process toward healing in between sessions.

Kinesio Taping

 Muscle Support

Kinesio Taping sessions include an assessment of a problematic area and correct application of RockTape®.  Taping can help to enhance performance, decrease pain, relax tight muscles, and facilitate underactive muscles. It can also be applied to help with swelling and inflammation as well as subcutaneous bruising and scar tissue remodeling.  Application is key!

Relaxation Massage

Back to Balance

60 and 90 minute Relaxation Sessions are offered to help with destressing and to help the body return to homeostasis (stable equilibrium).  These are NOT deep tissue sessions.  Light to moderate touch is used to soothe the nervous system.

Several Therapeutic Massage techniques will be utilized during Therapeutic Evaluation & Bodywork sessions to release facilitated or upregulated tissue.  Tissues to be released are identified, during NKT testing, to be in a compensatory relationship.  When releasing muscles and structures, it is important that the body doesn't feel like it is losing stability or it will likely increase the tension again in the structures you are trying to release.  The brain is likely trying to protect you by splinting or stabilizing a weakened or compromised area due to faulty movement patterns or compensations due to injury, accident, overuse, surgery (recent or even very long ago), stress or other factors affecting the body.
