(Micro-current Point Stimulation)- Neuromechanical Therapy
Based on concepts of acupuncture, this modern neurology works with the principal of microcurrent stimulation, and myofascia release. By following the recommended protocols, physicians/therapists are able to identify anatomical areas most responsible for contributing to a patient’s pain condition. Areas deemed ineffective in producing positive therapeutic responses are eliminated from future treatments. Areas producing positive responses are examined diagnostically to determine interrelationship(s) with the patient’s condition and are integrated into future protocols. Using this approach, MPS can produce superior results over traditional pain therapy techniques in a fraction of the time. All without drugs, side effects, pads or gels. MPS has been a remarkable success in the fight against chronic pain. The results are so impressive using this approach, that complete or substantial relief from pain may often occur in the first or second treatment. Most patients require 2-10 treatments for permanent results, with some chronic patients requiring ongoing treatments in the home setting. MPS can be individualized to any patient's needs and applied non-invasively in almost any setting, indoor or out, usually within 5-15 minutes. MPS stimulation is significantly more effective than any other therapies offered on the marketplace, decreasing recovery time by over 80%.

|Deep Tissue massage:|
Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is also not uncommon for receivers of Deep Tissue Massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two. Deep tissue work varies greatly. What one calls deep tissue another will call light. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling. The purpose is to release deeply-held patterns of tension, removing toxins, while relaxing and soothing the muscle. It is both corrective and therapeutic.
Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation. The development of Swedish massage is credited to Per Henrik Ling, though the Dutch practitioner Johan Georg Mezger adopted the French names to denote the basic strokes. The term "Swedish" massage is not really known in the country of Sweden, where it is called "classic massage".
Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. I am doing active sport since the age of six. It can be essential to receive massage after a hard performance to prevent injury. The professional sport knows about this fact. They have the monetary freedom to take their own therapists from competition to competition.
I offer very affordable monthly flat rates for the ones who are not shy to make a commitment.
Reflexology (zone therapy) is an alternative medicine, complementary, or integrated medicine method of treatment involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet and hand with specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.

|Active and passive Stretching|
Active stretching eliminates force and its adverse effects from stretching procedures. Before describing the principles on which active stretching is based, the terms agonist and antagonist must be clarified. Agonist refers to actively contracting muscle or muscles while their opposing muscles are termed antagonists. The neuromechanisms conceptualized by Sir Charles Sherrington (1857 - 1956), “the philosopher of the nervous system”, as applied to active stretching are: Reciprocal inhibition — While agonist muscles contract, contraction of the opposing antagonist muscles is inhibited. (Such as when alternately flexing and extending one's elbow.) Muscle spindles — Sensory nerve endings in muscle detect the change in length of the muscle and its rate of change. Force applied to a muscle stimulates the muscle spindles which activate protective reflexes resulting in contraction of that muscle. (Such as the knee jerk response of neurological testing procedures.) While necessary for sports and ordinary motions, this protective reaction is counterproductive for stretching, i.e., lengthening muscles.
Passive stretching is a form of static stretching in which an external force exerts upon the limb to move it into the new position. This is in contrast to active stretching. Passive stretching resistance is normally achieved through the force of gravity on the limb or on the body weighing down on it. It can also be achieved with the help of a partner, stretch bands, or mechanical devices. The more force exerted on the limb, the less time it will take to drop lower into the stretch. It is a fallacy that passive stretching will lead to 'an increase in injury risk'. As long as you gradually go into a stretch instead of a sudden stretch the risk of injury is no more than relaxed stretching.
Yoga changed my life and formed it in all aspects of who I represent today.My healing work received it's most important ingredient besides knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology, the different massage techniques, etc.: universal, unconditional love. The awareness of that particular energy, which is not depending on receiving anything in return, transformed my work into true healing of my clients.
Swami Sivananda recognised that every Yogi, or human being for that matter, possesses and identifies with each of these elements: Intellect, heart, body and mind. He therefore advocated everyone to practice certain techniques from each path. This came to be known as the Yoga of Synthesis. He also taught that in accordance with individual temperament and taste one can emphasize the practice of one of The Four Main Paths.

Massage therapists are able to offer on-site massage to many places of employment because of the portability of the massage chair. Clients do not need to disrobe to receive a chair massage. Due to these two factors, chair massage is often performed in settings such as corporate offices, outdoor festivals, shopping malls, and other public locations.
Thai massage is a type of massage in Thai style that involves stretching and deep massage. This form of bodywork is usually performed on the floor, and the client wears comfortable clothes that allow for movement. No oils are used in Thai massage. It is known in Thailand as "nuat phaen boran" (Thai: นวดแผนโบราณ, IPA: [nûət pʰɛ̌ːn boːraːn]), literally, the ancient-manner massage.
