For Pain-Free Results....That Last!

ONSEN® STRUCTURAL MANUAL THERAPY (60 or 90 mins)
The Best Choice for Chronic Pain Relief (that lasts)!
An Onsen™ Manual Therapy session includes key components - assessment, muscle energy technique, post-isometric relaxation, transverse friction massage, and exercise (most likely) for stability.
Assessment is how Steve will find where your body's structure is limited/stuck and where it may be hypermobile. This will provide the roadmap to bring you back to balance.
Muscle Energy Technique is a means of manually assessing imbalances and distortions in the skeletal system and correcting them, via the soft tissue, using a tiny amount of the patient's own energy (force) applied in a specific direction. Extremely gentle, MET provides dramatic and lasting improvements in flexibility, muscle tension and comfort.
Post-isometric relaxation works with the natural laws of the body. When a muscle has been actively contracted, the nervous system responds with an appropriate level of relaxation when the muscle relaxes.
Transverse friction massage works to break up scar tissue
and adhesions that may have formed during an injury or repetitive use injury.
Frictions help restore elasticity and increase blood flow to the area being
worked. This helps to remove waste products, toxins, and bring in fresh
nutrients, blood and oxygen to an area promoting healing.
Optional exercises may be given to provide either stability or mobility to the affected area(s). Steve may also recommend and/or incorporate therapeutic exercise, Pilates, Yoga, Chi Kung, Meditation, or breathwork exercises as homework to enhance the results from your session. Private Therapeutic Exercise/Yoga sessions are also available separately.
Onsen Manual Therapy (and problem solving) is Steve's specialty. Book a session today - you may
