How Manual Therapy Techniques Support Natural Healing
At Circle of Life Chiropractic, we are dedicated to guiding our patients on a transformative journey toward natural healing through manual therapy. Dr. Lisa specializes in diverse manual therapy treatments that address underlying causes of everyday pain, including trigger point release, muscle scraping (gua sha), cupping, and psoas release.
Trigger point release is a gentle and targeted technique that aims to release knots and tender points in your muscles, which are often sources of pain and tension. This technique can effectively alleviate muscle tightness and enhance blood circulation by applying delicate and precise pressure to these points, fostering a gentle healing process.
Muscle scraping, or gua sha, is an ancient technique that targets areas of muscle tension, promoting blood circulation and a harmonious flow of energy. This method aids in your body’s recovery and plays a significant role in breaking down scar tissue, allowing your body to heal with grace and ease.
Cupping therapy uses cups to create a soothing suction on the skin’s surface, gently stimulating blood circulation, reducing inflammation, and supporting faster healing in the affected areas.
Psoas release therapy addresses the psoas muscle, a long, thick muscle that runs from the lower spine to the top of the thigh bone, that is vital for core stability. By releasing tension, this approach aims to provide relief from chronic pain and contribute to an overall sense of lightness and improved mobility.
These gentle and targeted approaches hold a special place in promoting healing and easing discomfort, working as an effective supplement to chiropractic adjustments. By thoughtfully addressing trigger points and working out scar tissue, these manual therapy techniques can help support your body’s natural healing abilities.
