NeuroMuscular Reprogramming NMR®

NMR is a detailed and thorough structural bodywork which uses muscle testing to assess and correct dysfunctional coordination patterns at their source: the motor control center in the brain. This work is deeply effective, extremely detailed, and gets results where all else fails.

NMR works with the body’s organizational intelligence to assess and correct dysfunctional sequencing problems among the muscles, which reorganizes the brain, reducing energy demands created by inefficient functioning and the stress of disability. Abilities are restored that were lost, and clients are able to resume normal activities they thought were lost to them. It corrections dysfunctional motor patterns at their source, in the motor coordination center of your brain. The results are amazingly fast.

NMR gets long lasting results for all kinds of structural problems, whether acute or chronic – making it one of the best values in the marketplace. It is a wonderful complement to other bodywork modalities and the perfect adjunct to chiropractic or sports injury care. NMR assists recovery from acute injury, chronic neuromuscular pain, scoliosis, postural alignment problems, mild head injury and stroke, and cognitive dyslexia.   MORE

Stress Reduction Massage

A wonderful massage with a distinct difference! In a Stress Reduction Massage session, we work on all levels to relax your body, enhance your circulation, tune up your energy and reduce your stress levels. Stress Reduction Massage works with your conscious attention and intention to make changes in your body from the inside out. Try it. You’ll love it!

Discover for yourself that you have more power to make changes in your body than you were ever taught, by changing the way you direct your thought and the way you pay attention to things.

Myofascial Release (MFR)

Gentle, sustained pressure is applied to the myofascial connective tissue around and within muscles. This eliminates pain and restriction, restoring range of motion and coherence in the tissues.

MFR is performed directly on the skin without oils, enabling the therapist to detect connective tissue restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to enable release. Your practitioner will work with you to determine whether MFR is an appropriate treatment to help you to achieve your goals.

Deep Tissue Massage

Our Deep Tissue work is more than a massage that presses harder. Based on Hellerwork®, it is a deeply effective strategy that works with the fascial system to integrate your structure and improve range of motion.

Your body’s musculature is built in layers down to the bone. We use slow, deep pressure to intentionally access the deeper layers of muscle tissue in the body. We work with the tissue in these layers to relax, lengthen, and release holding patterns in the most effective way possible. A Deep Tissue Massage may include active release techniques, deep friction, or pressure through a range of motion to facilitate release and lengthening. We are aware of the importance of communication in delivering appropriately deep bodywork. We work with you to ensure your safety and satisfaction.

Sports Massage

We integrate traditional techniques used by athletes to help them recover quickly from injuries and prepare for competition. Meet and maintain your peak level of performance!

Pre-Natal Massage

Our practitioners have been trained by a highly skilled doula and massage therapist to provide safe and effective care during your pregnancy. Massage during pregnancy can help keep you more comfortable, aligned and free of stress. Pre-Natal Massage promotes good circulation, reduces the accumulation of fluids in the legs, and reduces the possibility of high blood pressure issues in the later stages of pregnancy.

CranioSacral Rebalancing

Craniosacral Rebalancing is a technique designed to slow the body down and promote a coherent pulsation in the cerebral-spinal fluid system. It turns on the Parasympathetic Nervous System, inducing a restful state where healing takes place.

As the central nervous system settles, this helps the body and all of its functions to reorganize and approach a state of balance and harmony. Craniosacral Rebalancing is an essential technique to address head injuries, epilepsy, learning problems, poor immune function, impaired digestion, adrenal depletion, insomnia, TMJ issues, birth trauma, other trauma, and any other conditions that have impacted the body. This subtle work is extremely profound and particularly valuable when there has been an injury to the head or spinal column.

Organ Massage

Congestion in the vital organs beneath your diaphragm can present itself with backache, headache, sinus pressure, shortness of breath, sluggish energy, heart palpitations, and other diverse symptoms. Gentle stimulation of the vital organs brings release of tension and pressure, flushes fluids, and promotes organ activity essential to maintaining good health. By activating the diaphragm and breathing pattern to keep organ systems stimulated, Organ Massage helps you maintain healthy organs and a healthy body.

Body-Centered Counseling

Enhance and speed up your healing process! Body-Centered Counseling plays a central role in the Healus integrated approach. Improve the quality of your breathing by opening your diaphragm and learning to breathe consciously. Regulate your metabolism and slow down your nervous system, helping your body heal. Facilitate your healing by identifying, expressing, and releasing feelings stored in the body. Learn body-centered exercises that you can do at home to release deeply stored emotional and physical stress in your body.

Brain Function Facilitation (BFF)

Brain function is the foundation upon which your body builds many capabilities. Stress can interfere with higher brain functions, leaving us inexplicably impaired. If you are having trouble with sleep, balance, concentration, learning, or recovery from an injury, you need Brain Function Facilitation to reduce the shock effect, restore normal brain function, and promote faster healing.

Injury, trauma and stress all contribute to a condition called Sympathetic Hyperarousal. This means that the fight/flight/freeze side of your nervous system is activated. This condition tenses muscles and interferes with sleep, digestion, immunity, healing, attention, focus, and coordination. Brain Function Facilitation gives you activities you can use to re-boot the integrated level of brain function after stress, shock, or trauma have shut it down. It is a precursor to the healing process, and is useful in recovering from accidents, ADD, Dyslexia, PTSD, post-operative stress, chronic fatigue, and bi-lateral imbalances.

Structural Conditioning

Now that you’ve worked with one or more of our practitioners to release restrictions, correct muscle coordination dysfunctions, and activate disabled muscle systems, you may want more. Individualized strength and conditioning exercises will reinforce new patterns introduced by NeuroMuscular Reprogramming or other bodywork.

Exercises or stretches that are designed to support your treatment plan can be recorded to a personal smartphone for you to use at home while practicing your Structural Conditioning work. You will gain greater benefit from Structural Conditioning, when you are correctly coached in your home practice. We suggest you plan to do this for each session in which new exercises or stretches are given.

Movement Re-education and Ergonomics

At Healus, body consciousness and integrative movement are a natural outgrowth of the work we do. Often, symptoms are locked in by habitual movement patterns that keep those symptoms from resolving.

Through exercise and stretching programs we achieve movement re-education to change functional and postural patterns that contribute to repetitive stress injuries, pain patterns, and other musculoskeletal disorders. After your NeuroMuscular Reprogramming session you may be given specific suggestions to modify your home and work environments to support the changes you are making in your body.

These are just some of the ways we support your good health on and off the table.

Individual Yoga Programs

Private yoga sessions give you structure and support for an integrated body-building plan. Reinforce the strength and reliability of your newly reprogrammed muscles. Build the core strength you need to live pain free. A flexible spine and a strong, functionally integrated musculoskeletal framework will keep you feeling young and moving youthfully, throughout your life.

If you are working with a trainer or physical therapist, we would like to collaborate with them, so they will know what you are working on with us.
