“If you would seek health, look first to the spine.” – Socrates
The spine and extremity joints are important structures that house and provide protection for the spinal cord, all while providing mobility for the upper body. This dual requirement of strength and flexibility makes the spine a very complex structure, with multiple joints at each spinal segment forming the spinal column.
Joint Mobility is essential for proper neurological function. It is a self-regulatory mechanism that removes aches and pains which are the body’s last effort attempt to communicate to your brain that injury is imminent. Joint mobility slows and reverses accelerated aging, which happens not only from physical activities, trauma, and injuries, but also from the activities of daily living.
When these joints are not positioned or functioning normally, it can affect the nerves exiting the spine. Our joint mobility assessment allows us to make specific corrections to the spine by gently repositioning these joints to their original position.
Muscle Flexibility reduces stress in the muscles and releases tension developed from movement. It reduces the risk of injury during exercise and daily activities because muscles are more pliable and improves performance of everyday activities as well as performance in exercise and sport.
We also provide therapeutic muscle massages to address the muscle imbalances found in your assessment. This healing therapy treats myofascial adhesions commonly known as “trigger points” or “muscle knots.” The therapist will use their hands to determine the tightness, texture, and movement of the fascia, muscles, ligaments, nerves, and tendons. In doing so, they are able to treat the abnormal tissues through tension precision, targeting very specific movements.
“Growing old is like being increasingly penalized for a crime you haven’t committed.”
There is no more obvious measure of aging then constantly being stiff and tight. We observe too many people that have ignored their body and are starting to pay the price. The Wellness Warrior Rx joint mobility & muscle flexibility assessment identifies any mobility issues in your spine, joints, and muscles.
We review your correction plan with you and provide multiple joint-correction and muscle therapy sessions to restore mobility and flexibility. Our goal is to facilitate your inner warrior by using multiple gentle joint corrections and muscle therapy sessions. Once you have finished a whole-body joint mobility and muscle flexibility session, you will feel the following immediate benefits:
- You will restore health at each joint by facilitating synovial fluid movement.
- You will reach a heightened sensory awareness.
- You will have better efficiency of your movement.
- You will increase your range of motion.
- You will increase your performance.
- You will be feel calm and relaxed.
If your assessment indicates a potential vulnerability in energy utilization, we may provide a therapeutic energy therapy. Healing Touch is a biofield therapy that is an energy-based approach to health and healing. Healing Touch uses the gift of touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body. These non-invasive techniques employ the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields, thus affecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
