– Neuroproprioceptive Taping (K-Tape)*
Neuroproprioceptive Taping, famously known as K-Tape, Kinesio Tape, KT, or Kinesiology tape is an elastic therapeutic tape made out of an elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive. It is used with the intent of treating pain and disability injuries and other disorders.
It is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, external support that helps you remain active while recovering from injuries. Can help maintain a proper posture.
Other benefits of Neuroproprioceptive Taping are that it can act as a method of lymphatic drainage, it helps move the swelling and can aid in the healing of bruises.
– Myofascial Cupping
Myofascial cupping is a soft tissue therapy that encourages healing by creating a negative pressure or “suction” on the skin using plastic cups that pull up and separate underlying tissues, blood, and other fluids close to the surface of the skin.
This form of treatment can help treat soft tissue conditions and musculoskeletal tension, pain, and common sporting injuries. It can also create relaxation through stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system.
This form of treatment often leaves visible marks called ecchymosis marks. These are NOT bruises! These occur simply because of the suction bringing the blood to the surface where as a bruise occurs from impact. These marks can last hours or upto 10 days post treatment. It is common to feel slightly tender in the area that was cupped.
– Acupuncture* (30 -45 mins)
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that involves inserting needles in specific points on the body to manipulate the flow of energy or “Qi”. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins (the body’s natural pain-relieving hormones) through insertion of needles into specific anatomical points to encourage natural healing.
