Body Alignment Therapies

Tired of feeling like your body is ‘out of whack’, but you can’t pinpoint what is wrong?

Body alignment therapies aim to relieve your body from any stress on your spine and improve your posture too.  There are a range of body alignment therapies that we use at Massage Studio on Herries, including myopractic, foot joint mobilisation and emmett techniques. 

 

Myopractic Techniques Toowoomba

Myopractic therapy allows the release of particular muscles and for the body to be brought into balanced structural alignment.

It works to relieve chronic pain. Working with deep muscle tissue, in combination with structural integration or harmony between the individual’s body and the surrounding gravitational field.

The fascia, a web-like connective tissue in the organs, bones, muscles, and blood vessels are manipulated into a position of harmony and balance.

 

Foot Joint Mobilisation Toowoomba

Because the feet are the foundation of the body, any instability or misalignment in the feet can affect the whole body.

Micro changes in the feet and joints are often due to daily use, work or sports stress and trauma, rather than more obvious events such as sprains and breaks. It’s these tiny changes that initially cause feet discomfort and if left to worsen, cause consequent structural problems.

The effects of foot joint mobilisation can be felt not only locally in the feet and ankles, but also through the legs, pelvis, back and even the head and neck, fixing these problems rather than resorting to surgery.

Foot joint mobilisation applies gentle pressure and manipulation to the various structures of the foot to:

  • Realign the bones within the feet
  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce swelling
  • Increase mobility
  • Restore normal gait
  • Increase range of motion

 

Emmett Techniques Toowoomba

The Emmett technique is a muscle activation technique, used to unlock muscle memory. A body alignment practitioner has the skills to assess a client to find the initial activation that created the neuro-muscular problem.

Light pressure sequences are used to release the problem areas and the effect can be almost instantaneous. This activation gives the brain the opportunity to set up a new state of homeostasis and provides an opportunity for realignment of the body.

Symptoms that can be relieved include:

  • Neck and shoulder restriction and referred discomfort
  • Lymphatic congestion and breathing
  • Migraine and cluster headaches
  • Abdominal cramps and bowel discomfort
  • Persistent heel and foot pain
  • Headaches, dizziness and sinus congestion
  • Back and hip discomfort
  • Knee and ankle restrictions
  • Fluid retention
  • Pregnancy related issues
  • And many more
