Energy Work

It is common that the area of pain is not where the initial injury lies. By assessing the energy in the meridian pathways, areas of blocking and dysfunction can be identified. These areas are often asymptomatic and therefor often overlooked. Treatment of these areas is often a necessary part of the overall rehabilitation process. Massage techniques focusing on energy release are therefore incorporated into the treatment regime.
