Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT)
Integrative Manual Therapy is an advanced form of hands-on therapy that focuses on restoring normal function to tissues damaged by trauma, inflammation, improper nutrition, overuse, infection and other causes. With the use of hundreds of different manual techniques, an IMT therapist can zero in on the primary dysfunction and trace it back to its original source – handling each issue as it surfaces. By feeling and following the subtle rhythms of the body’s tissues, the IMT therapist can reduce constrictions in tissues, allowing the body’s natural healing ability to do its job the way it’s supposed to.
Laser therapy is a productive tool in treating acute pain, chronic degenerative conditions, and muscle, tendon and ligament injuries. It stimulates cellular activity to improve the speed and quality of healing. Non-invasive and non-toxic, laser therapy serves as a complement to surgery and/or pharmaceuticals, and in some cases can even replace them.
Hand Therapy Program
Hand therapy is “the art and science of rehabilitation of ... the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle”. It is used to treat a number of conditions including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, fractures, sprains, joint dysfunctions, soft tissue trauma and more. Performed by an occupational therapist certified in hand therapy, the techniques are geared to help hard-to-treat patients relieve pain and regain strength and mobility.
Kinesiotape is used to treat a variety of orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions. It is used to reduce pain, prevent injury and optimize performance. It also supports and stabilizes muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. With a texture and elasticity very close to human skin, Kinesiotape stretches and recoils to augment and protect tissue function and increase circulation. It distributes pressure away from injured or inflamed areas so they can heal.

Monitoring your weight is not enough to be healthy, and in some cases it can be very frustrating. It can also be misleading because your weight doesn't begin to tell your whole story. The InBody Test reveals your percentage of body fat, muscle distribution and body water balance. Knowing these components is key to understanding your body and creating the right diet, lifestyle and fitness program for you. Your first InBody Test gives you a valuable baseline, and regular subsequent tests help you track your progress in achieving your health and fitness goals.
