The term 'Biodynamic' relates to the body's natural state and the forces which act upon it to cause movement. This style of evidence-informed massage centers around a therapeutic model that focuses on the assessment and correction of muscular, visceral, or physiological imbalances which can affect the normal functionality of the body.

The goal of our medically-based massage treatment is the resolution of joint, muscular imbalances and organ discomfort derived from:
Biodynamic massage centers around a therapeutic based model which focuses on muscular, physiological imbalances. Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) uses a variety of treatments designed to achieve results.
Myofascial integration refers to the assessment and manual treatment of the connective tissue (fascia) beneath the skin in an attempt to relieve the adhesions that cause restrictions within the movement of muscle fibers. The technique focuses on pain that can arise from these tough membranes that wrap, connect and support the muscular system, and is often effective in the treatment of soft tissue tension as well as limited range of motion.
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJD) are a group of musculoskeletal disorders affecting the masticatory muscles, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), and their associated structures. Evidence suggests that TMJD is commonly associated with other conditions of the head and neck region, including cervical spine disorders and headaches, and is commonly treated by registered massage therapists using both intra and extra-oral techniques. The TMJ is the joint responsible for connecting the bottom portion of the jaw called the mandible to the temporal region of the skull. Patients suffering from TMJD may not realize just how often they use their jaw, as it is very important for daily activities like yawning, talking, and eating. If the jaw is not working properly, this can lead to a significant amount of pain, discomfort, and even postural imbalances when left untreated.
Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. This treatment is designed to enhance the function of muscles and joints, improve circulation and general body tone, and relieve mental stress and physical fatigue.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on technique that uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.
Neuromuscular therapy is a form of manual massage that corrects pain and dysfunction by treating trigger points, muscle adhesions, and fascial (connective tissue) patterns.
Visceral manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that assists your body's ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that can lead to pain and dysfunction. VM does not focus solely on the site of pain but rather evaluates the entire body in an attempt to locate the source of the problem.
Joint mobilization is a physical therapy technique designed to relieve pain and muscle spasms, release tension, and improve flexibility in a joint. These motions stretch and strengthen the tissue surrounding the bone, which also helps reduce pain and increase the range of motion.
Osteopathy is a type of treatment that emphasizes physical manipulation of the body's muscle tissue and bones. Its name derives from Ancient Greek "bone" and "pain, suffering".Using several OMT techniques, The RMT apply gentle pressure to manipulate the muscles, soft tissues, and joints. The treatment encourages your body to heal itself by ensuring that your bones and muscles are aligned and balanced properly.
Trigger point therapy (the treatment of muscular knots) is a manual massage technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. This type of treatment is commonly known as TP release, myofascial trigger point work, or the NMT trigger point method, all of which involve the treatment of myofibril nodules that develop due to overwork and stress.
