Hot Stone Massage: Basalt stones are used to heat and warm the muscles into a more relaxed state. The optional cold sinus stones are applied to the facial sinus areas. 

Compression based joint-mobilization method; According to Dr Kelly Starrett in Becoming a Supple Leopard, "by wrapping a band around a joint or chunk of scar tissue and introducing movement creates a global shearing effect-restoring sliding surface function to the underlying banded tissues and the bank bulk creates a flexion-gapping force at the joint, which can help restore range of motion to the joint."

Kinesio Tape and Rock Tape: This is a breathable, stretchable medical sport rehab tape.It is applied in a partially stretched state, the direction of the pull acts as a communication system on muscle receptors. For athletes and over-use injuries, it is applied from origin toward the muscle insertion point to work in the direction of the muscle fibers. Rock Tape helps restore proper movement function as an added bonus, when applied correctly.

ART's: Active Release Technique is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It releases scar tissue that gets built up that is preventing tissue from moving freely. As scar tissue is built up, muscles become shorter and weaker and puts pressure on tendons which can cause a host of problems, including tendinitis.

Aromatherapy: Several pure essential oil scents are available.Eucalyptus essential oil aids in chest congestion, asthma, and is an arterial vasodilator that increases circulation through the skin. Clove essential oil is antimicrobial, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac and stimulating properties and is used for treating a variety of health disorders including toothaches, indigestion, cough, asthma, headache, stress and blood impurities. Lemon essential oil is uplifting to the mind and improves concentration and energy levels. Spearmint essential oil is a rich antioxidant and supports the health of the nervous system.

Chinese Cupping: small glass suction cups are placed on the skin that causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. The suction and negative pressure can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow and sedate the nervous system. Cupping can affect tissues very deep from the external skin. Toxins can be released, blockages can be cleared and veins and arteries can be refreshed.

Marc Pro Electro Stim: Advanced recovery and helps elevate performance. Marc Pro is the new generation of TENS units. Marc Pro helps feed more nutrients and clears more waste from fatigued muscles, accelerating the recovery and conditioning process.
