Static stretching, dynamic stretching and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching (PNF)
Muscle energy Techniques
Is a manual therapy that uses the gentle muscle contractions of the client to relax and lengthen muscles and normalize joint motion. It is “a direct manipulative procedure that uses a voluntary contraction of the patient’s muscles against a distinctly controlled counter force made by the practitioner (most likely). It is considered an active technique, as opposed to a passive technique where only the therapist does the work.
Cupping (vacuum and fire)
Through either heat or suction, the skin is gently drawn upwards by creating a vacuum in a cup over the target area of the skin. The cup stays in place for five to fifteen minutes. It is believed by some to help treat pain, deep scar tissues in the muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and swelling.The cupping procedure commonly involves creating a small area of low air pressure next to the skin. However, there is variety in the tools used, the method of creating the low pressure, and the procedures followed during the treatment
Myofascial Dry-Needling (MDN) is the application of fine needles into specific points in the muscles known as trigger points, to produce a healing and analgesic (pain-modifying) outcome. MDN is a highly effective and painless technique.
TENs (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
Hot/ Cold Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy
Myofascial Stretching is the application of a range of stretching techniques, used to elongate the muscle fibres, return functionally short muscles to their optimal length and increase the range of motion of a joint, leading to prevention of further injury.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft Tissue Therapy is the use of the hands to target specific areas of dysfunction for the purpose of a therapeutic outcome.
