Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 1997, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) documented and publicized acupuncture’s safety and efficacy for treating a wide range of conditions. Acupuncture is now covered by many insurance policies and is used most broadly to relieve pain. More info

Shockwave

foot-massageESWT gives us an edge in solving some of the most stubborn chronic conditions that a person can face. The machines we use have been proven to have an average of 85% success in pain free living after 3 months of treatment once new tissue has fully regenerated. We use STORZ shockwave machines made in Switzerland; a state-of-the-art technology,  that delivers a high pressure radial sound wave that travels through the skin and into inflamed tissues and bone causing regeneration of new tissue because of extra blood flow and cell re-growth.  More info..

IMS

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is a therapeutic treatment that targets tight and sore muscles that often accompany other conditions, such as overuse injuries, nerve irritation, muscle strains, tension headaches, whiplash, arthritis, and low back pain. It involves the insertion of fine acupuncture needles into tight bands of muscle that contain a knot, or ‘trigger point’.

Custom Foot Orthotics

foot-massage An ‘orthotic’ is a device designed to restore your natural foot function. Many ‘biomechanical’ (walking) complaints such as heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain are caused by poor foot function. Orthotics re-align the foot and ankle bones to their neutral position, thereby restoring natural foot function. In turn this helps alleviate problems in other parts of the body.?In addition, orthotics give a more even weight distribution, taking pressure of sore spots (e.g. the ball of the foot, corns in between toes, bunions etc) and they provide some shock absorption.

Botox
