Holistic Physical Therapy
Physical Therapy – This traditional training includes instructing you how to properly stretch what is tight and strengthen what is weak, using various hands on techniques such as joint stretches and soft tissue mobilizations to help restore good posture and freedom of movement and to minimize pain and dysfunction. Lizzy has been practicing as a licensed physical therapist for over 20 years, but she will not stop with just physical therapy.
Visceral manipulation (VM) – A gentle manual therapy that aids your body’s ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction. This techniques does not focus solely on the site of pain. Elizabeth will evaluate the entire body to find the mechanical source of the problem. This gentle technique helps restore tissues inside the body to move, slide, and glide over surrounding structures. Things can get stuck from poor posture, disease, infections, scar tissue, poor diet, emotional stress, lack of exercise or dehydration. VM was developed by world renowned French Osteopath Jean-Pierre Barrel who was named “one of the Top Healing Innovators to watch in the new millennium” by Time Magazine.
Craniosacral therapy – This technique uses a soft touch equivalent to the weight of a nickel. Practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. Our bodies compensate from all the stresses we experience, though the body can only handle so much before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Time Magazine also named the developer of this technique, Dr. John Upledger, one of America’s “Next Wave of Innovators” for his proven clinical applications of Craniosacral Therapy.
