Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session. Listen  to this testimony from Brandy- she is living with multiple sclerosis.

Orthopedic Massage

Orthopedic massage is a style of massage therapy focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues of the body. Because orthopedic massage is designed to treat medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons, and decompress rigid joints. My goal is to restore full health to the soft tissues of your body, both treating your specific conditions as well as improving your overall well-being. Types of common ailments addressed are plantar fasciitis, sprains and strains, scar tissue remodeling, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, post surgery, diabetic neuropathy, scoliosis, muscle contractures and the list continues.

To date, I have cleared issues that have limited movement causing pain, worked on to clear matters traditional medicine only looked to medicate, and have done work allowing people to not have surgeries. I will work with your healthcare professional (MD, RN, NP, etc) to address your concerns. Together we can give you a higher quality of life.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.

Watch below as I work on a Thai fighter and friend, visiting from the Bahamas in preparation for his upcoming fight. This work was targeted for his left hook which is suffered an injury to his shoulder in a previous fight preventing him from adding extra torque to his punch.

Singlet Oxygen Therapy

Singlet Oxygen Therapy is a highly advanced, safe, non-invasive, non-toxic therapy. Singlet Oxygen Therapy is able to harness the power of photosynthesis to trigger the body’s own natural healing and balancing mechanisms. It has been successfully used to improve treatment outcomes and the lives of thousands of patients for the past 30 years. In a 2018 study published in the Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Guo et al (2018) showed singlet oxygen applications worked well to kill viruses!

This therapy has been shown through decades of scientific research to decrease free radicals, balance stress hormones, improve parasympathetic response, and increase sustained energy levels. Literally the device causes energy release from splitting oxygen molecule trapped by the humidity from water then inhaled to promote cellular functions and ATP production.

Singlet oxygen is highly reactive so that within a very brief fraction of a second, the oxygen reverts to its ground state, releasing the energy into the water vapor in the air. When this humidified, activated air enters the lungs and is absorbed by cells in the body it triggers our own natural processes of healing, cell repair, stress reduction, and detoxification. This results in the reduction of free radical and stress induced aging processes and subsequent increased vitality, health, beauty, and well-being.

In the words of renown German Physician, Dr. Klaus Erpenbach:

“Oxygen is the most important element in our life. Without food we can survive weeks, without drinking up to 5 days, but without oxygen only minutes! Oxygen is the central part in each and every cell of our body.

In our cellular power stations the oxygen is transformed into energy and so used for regeneration, repair and power – in every cell. Thus an optimization of the oxygen utilization by applying the Singlet Oxygen Energy technology can lead to enhanced performance in every cell.

Scientific studies proved that stress hormones are normalized under Singlet Oxygen Energy application, you become more stress resistant, sleep better, are more relaxed in the mornings, and can start the day actively: well-tempered and with more power. Simultaneously the stress resistance affects the heart: by an increased heart variability and therefore improved performance.

Another clinical trial showed that the use of SOE technology resulted in a normalization of the blood pressure after 4 weeks. Also based on scientific evidence, the lung function and the physical fitness of patients with COPD or bronchial asthma could be clearly improved after 4 weeks; the patients even experienced better sleep patterns and lower blood pressure.”

FMT Rockblading (IASTM)

Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a popular fascial mobilization and pain relief technique used by a number of healthcare professionals including myself. IASTM introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement.

The tools may be hard-edged, but the techniques don’t need to be aggressive to deliver superior outcomes. The blades give me the ability to work into deep tissue within minutes freeing up adhesions, fascial restrictions, breaking down trigger points and more.

The best part about the blades is that what usually would hurt to be done by hand, using the blades lessens the discomfort.

PEMF Therapy

Pulse Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy works in conjunction with the body’s own recovery processes to relieve pain by restoring cells’ ability to function efficiently. Our skins, bones, and organs are composed of tiny cells. The membrane of a healthy cell has both positive and negative charges that are required for the exchange of potassium, sodium, and calcium ions. When cells become distressed from disease, trauma or toxins, they lose their ability to function efficiently. PEMF restores the positive and negative charges in the cell, enabling it to perform its natural function while speeding tissue recovery.

PEMF machines operate on different frequencies and this is what often sets them apart. Everyone’s body responds differently to electromagnetic waves and different frequencies target specific tissue types. The Pulse Pro XL emits a unique series of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields at precise frequencies targeted on four key tissue types resulting in increased circulation, reduced inflammation, improved mobility, and relieved pain.

The human body requires electricity to send signals through the body and to the brain. PEMF therapy works effectively to re-align the electric potential of our cells. Resting cells are negatively charged on the inside, while the outside of the cell is more positively charged. The flow of charges across the cell membrane is what generates electrical currents. When a cell is stimulated, it allows positive charges to enter the cell through open ion channels. The inside of the cell then becomes more positively charged, which triggers further electrical currents that can turn into electrical pulses, called action potentials. Our bodies use certain patterns of action potentials to initiate the correct movements, thoughts and behaviors. A disruption in electrical currents can lead to illness. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) can restore the disruption of the electrical current to its normal state, therefore, helping restore the cell.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and veterinary medicine. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain.

Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Shockwaves are characterized by jump change in pressure, high amplitude and non-periodicity. The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator and further into the tissue.

Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Inflammatory responses play a central role in the development and persistence of many diseases and can lead to debilitating chronic pain. In many cases, inflammation is your body’s response to stress. Therefore, reducing “fight-or-flight” responses in the nervous system and lowering biological markers for stress can also reduce inflammation.

Typically, doctors prescribe medications to combat inflammation. However, there’s growing evidence that another way to combat inflammation is by engaging the vagus nerve and improving “vagal tone.” This can be achieved through daily habits such as yoga and meditation—or in more extreme cases of inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA)—by using an implanted device for vagus nerve stimulation (VNS).

The vagus nerve is known as the “wandering nerve” because it has multiple branches that diverge from two thick stems rooted in the cerebellum and brainstem that wander to the lowest viscera of your abdomen touching your heart and most major organs along the way. Vagus means “wandering” in Latin. The words vagabond, vague, and vagrant are all derived from the same Latin root.

In 1921, a German physiologist named Otto Loewi discovered that stimulating the vagus nerve caused a reduction in heart rate by triggering the release of a substance he coined Vagusstoff (German for “Vagus Substance”). The “vagus substance” was later identified as acetylcholine and became the first neurotransmitter ever identified by scientists.

Vagusstoff (acetylcholine) is like a tranquilizer that you can self-administer simply by taking a few deep breaths with long exhales. Consciously tapping into the power of your vagus nerve can create a state of inner-calm while taming your inflammation reflex.

The vagus nerve is the prime component of the parasympathetic nervous system which regulates the “rest-and-digest” or “tend-and-befriend” responses. On the flip side, to maintain homeostasis, the sympathetic nervous system drives the “fight-or-flight” response.

My method is non invasive and simple to accomplish with mild microcurrent applied at the base of the neck near the shoulder to stimulate the nerve which is accomplished in minutes.
