KINETIC CHAIN THERAPY
Kinetic Chain is a therapy that works on the connections in the system (muscle, joints, fascia and nerves) that allows its interlinking pieces to produce movement. When one of these links in the human chain doesn’t function efficiently, the whole system can be affected. At The Fix we seek to provide the highest level of care using a truly unique and integrated treatment approach that evaluates and treats the whole person. We strive to improve lives and help those suffering from acute injury and chronic pain, as well as healthy individuals seeking personal improvement or athletes seeking performance enhancement.
Rather than treating symptoms alone, our detailed evaluation process seeks to uncover the root cause of dysfunction. No problem is viewed in isolation. Our whole person approach enables us to treat the entire system to ensure the body works in synergy between all regions. The global approach is designed to prevent recidivism in treatment, provide long lasting relief, and create a sustainable management strategy for the future. Each client will receive a customized treatment plan tailored to fit their individual needs and goals. We may use a variety of tools such as: infrared mat, cupping, myofascial scraping, muscle testing to achieve this goal. We strive to help every client to be the best they can be and live the highest quality of life every day.
MediCupping™ is three to five times more effective than traditional Deep Tissue massage or Target Area massages because it doesn’t just help remove painful knots (adhesions); it helps heal the soft tissue dysfunction creating the problem in the first place. Massage compresses into the tissue. Cupping pulls the tissue layers out and apart to decompress the tissue. When tissue decompresses, many benefits occur:
MediCupping™* is three to five times more effective than traditional Deep Tissue massage or Target Area massages because it doesn’t just help remove painful knots (adhesions); it helps heal the soft tissue dysfunction creating the problem in the first place. Massage compresses into the tissue. Cupping pulls the tissue layers out and apart to decompress the tissue. When tissue decompresses, many benefits occur:
- Muscle soften
- Scar tissue reduced
- Attachments strengthen
- Knots dissolve
- Connective tissue stretches back to normal
- Hydration to soft tissue and blood flow increases
- Lymphatic pathways open so that acidic-toxins can drain away from the injured tissues
Bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues
One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue as well as the elimination of old waste and congestion. Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris, the use of suction is invaluable in releasing soft tissue, scars and restricted fascia. Think of the impact of clearing and opening the body systems all the way down to a cellular level, as well as releasing old structural compensatory patterns that are no longer beneficial. A new cycle begins with the replication of healthier cells turning into healthier systems … a recaptured homeostasis that leads to wellness, despite age or history.
Rolfing Structural Integration is a form of therapy directed at bringing a person’s bodily structure into a more harmonious state.
Typically spread out over ten or more sessions, the practitioner works with the client systematically to address the whole body. By breaking the complete structure down into sections, each with individual and collective responsibilities, the practitioner is able to provide ample attention to any structural issue discovered. This process allows systemic change to occur.
For example, many people seek the help of Rolfers® for low back pain. Often the source of the pain is not centered in the back, but instead comes from a complex web of interactions and structures that make up the complete human form. Rolfing® provides a framework with which to understand this complexity, and begin the process of shifting dysfunction into the direction of harmonious balance. Recipients often experience this as the shift of the bodily structure into a more natural alignment e.g. skeletal, musculoskeletal, and postural.
