Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a specialized form of manual therapy that utilizes static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.
Relaxation Massage or Swedish Massage
Relaxation Massage or Swedish Massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation and ease muscle tension.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage involves using direct deep pressure of friction applied across the grain of the muscles. This direct pressure works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage uses heated basalt stones as tools both by gliding over the skin and being placed on certain areas of the body. The heat from the stones relaxes muscles and increases the blood flow to the area being worked on which further accelerates the healing process.
Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-invasive form of healing that increases energy, reduces pain, produces deep relaxation, and a general feeling of well-being. Through the creation of deep relaxation, it can help the body trigger its self-healing abilities, create balance, and reduce the side effects of excessive stress, medications, or medical procedures.
CranioSacral is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

I just had my first laser treatment on my right deltoid/bicep. INCREDIBLE! It has hurt for a while but I could hardly move my arm this morning. I scheduled with Eric for bodywork and he suggested the Diowave Laser and now I am hooked! Pain is almost gone. Thank you for this wonder treatment!
After a baseball career of over 20 years and being very athletic during the off season and even after retirement, the hands of time begin to catch up with me. Wrist pain, knee pain and even low back pain were just a few of my aches and pains I have been experiencing. Diowave Laser Therapy is just what I needed. It has helped relieve my pain and allowed me to be active.

Kim was able to provide many different treatment options including Neuromuscular Massage and Laser therapy during my recovery both pre and post-operatively. She also worked closely with my Doctors and Physical therapist to provide the best care possible.
