NMT is used at Combined Clinic for injury prevention and cure. We treat people with chronic long-standing pain, people with acute sudden pain, and people with occupational injuries - consistently finding that NMT is a hugely effective treatment for the elimination of pain caused by soft tissue (muscular) strain, overuse, and trauma, regardless of when the injury occurred.
Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. This promotes healing by stimulating the nerves in the body and encouraging increased flow of blood and energy. As a result the body achieves a state of homeostasis (body balance) - promoting self healing from within.
Thai Massage is an ancient form of therapy thought to have been developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand 2,500 years ago. It uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Thai massage typically takes place on a mat or futon and is usually performed fully clothed.
Relaxation of the entire body is one of the primary goals of this technique. Muscles are rubbed with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Based on the techniques of Per Henrik Ling this technique is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
Indian Head Massage
Indian head massage originated in India over 1000 years ago and began as a way of keeping the hair in good condition. It is based on the ancient healing system of Ayurveda. This form of massage works on the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, ears and face to promote overall stress relief as well as reducing tension levels.
Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a cup is placed on the skin over the targeted area and, by creating a vacuum, the skin is drawn upwards. Used by athletes worldwide - including Olympic legend Michael Phelps - for injuries and scar tissue that require greatly reduced recovery times.
Dry needling is the use of either solid filiform needles (also referred to as acupuncture needles) or hollow-core hypodermic needles for the therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome. Dry needling can help with sports injuries as well as post-surgery treatment, traumatic injuries or chronic pains such as low back pain or headaches.
Pilates and Yoga
We finally acknowledge what Joseph Pilates believed in all along: our minds and bodies don’t function separately and should be treated as an extension to each other, because bringing the two into balance is key to happy and healthy living. When it comes to lifestyle and exercise, “mind-body” is now mainstream, with most prominently Pilates and Yoga at their core.
Developed by Japanaese Chiropractor Dr. Kenzo Kase in the 1970's with the intention of alleviating pain and improving the healing in soft tissue, Kinesiology taping (KT) is a therapeutic tool that has become increasingly popular within the sporting arena. KT is not only used for sporting injuries but for a variety of other conditions.
What may appear like a new practice, bamboo massage, has in fact ancient Far Eastern origins. Bamboo massage incorporates bamboo stalks of different lengths and diameters that provide deep-tissue work - the massage itself promoting circulation, sensory nerve perception, and lymphatic drainage, as well as providing a deep sense of relaxation and well-being. It is believed that by stimulating the tissue, the bamboo has the ability to reduce the “sluggish state of the body," by dissipating the heat resulting from an accumulation of toxins and poor circulation; some people who have undergone this practice have described these releases as a whole-body tingling or a warming sensation.
Pregnancy massage is a massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs. This type of massage can reduce stress, ease back pain, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, improve circulation and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. Positioning during a pregnancy massage is critical to the safety and well-being of both the mother and the baby she is carrying.
