Manual Medicine – refers to a holistic approach to pain dysfunctions by using:
Its motto is: Treating the Patient, not the Pain.
It’s based on a presumption that individual spheres of a person’s life make an undividable unity. In a holistic approach, mind, body, emotions and soul create oneness.
Instead of focusing on the symptoms, holistic medicine tries to discover the cause of the problem. The key to ensure the efficacy of the therapy is the patients involvement in the process. This type of medicine puts its focus on natural treatments.Dry Needling
Dry Needling – a type of pain treatment which involves puncturing sore areas pointed out by the patient, or found by the therapist, with an acupuncture needle. Puncturing eliminates muscle thickening (trigger points), and fibrosis around those muscles; it also cures injured ligaments and tendons. These are the most common causes of pain.
Dry Needling is a very effective method, which eliminates deep-seated sore points.
Visceral Therapy – It’s a technique of an internal organs area massage, which focuses on manual work on the abdominal wall to release fascial restrictions.
Our organs, even during rest, are located in the fascial web, inside of which they move approximately 2000 times a day. They have their own independent rhythm and frequency of movement. Any disturbance of that web results in tension in internal organs and leads to symptoms like heartburn, flatulence, digestion and excretion problems. Fascial restrictions can be the reason behind moodiness, apathetic states, tiredness; also, because of their connections to the spine and diaphragm, they can result in various pain syndromes, e.g.:
● chronic back pain
● groin pain
● stomach pain
● private parts pain
● ovaries pain
● pelvic pain
● pain sensations during sexual intercourse
● urinary incontinence or pollakiuria
Our muscles and joints wouldn’t be able to move if it wasn’t for fascial system. Fasciae ensure relative movement of our muscles by absorbing 38% of muscle contraction force. The fascial system causes the most distant muscles of our body to cooperate with one another, at the same time creating one big mechanism, the so-called myofascial chain, which entwines the whole body. For instance, the distortion of the mobility of the brachial fascia will have negative influence on the movement of both hips. The target of this therapy is to eliminate those restrictions and make the movements more harmonious.PINOPRESURE
It’s the only Polish conception of reflexology and the only one of its kind on a global scale. Pinopressure combines acupressure, acupuncture, reflexotherapy and craniopuncture, it ensures psychological and emotional unwinding, releases the tension from central and peripheral nervous system, regulates own potential, triggers lost conductivity of nerve signals. This type of therapy has a detoxifying effect on the organism.
Pinopressure is performed on peripheral nervous system and central nervous system with the use of pins. The stimulating process takes place through receptors located in projecting spheres of the skin, and biologically active points known from acupuncture. Thanks to pinopressure we are able to eliminate most of the pain conditions, even the ones that have been present for years. Its impact on nervous system and soft tissue makes it one of the most efficient tools to fasten the post-operational regeneration of slow-healing wounds and fresh scars.
Developed by an Italian physiotherapist Luigi Stecco, this type of manual therapy focuses on working on the musculoskeletal fasciae and pointing out particular points (particularly compromised motor skills); It creates overall interpretation of the fascial system. In practical terms, it means that when the painful, limited movement has been analysed, then the area that has to be treated can be deduced, that’s why one of the most essential things is thorough interview which can ensure effective therapy. Basing on the motion and palpation verification, the points which will undergo manipulation are selected. Through the right manipulation and mobilisation of those areas it is possible to retain the full mobility, and most importantly – reduce the pain. This method relies on holistic approach to the human body, i.e. treating particular segments as one tissue chain link, which continuity is ensured by the fascia.
