This allows the practitioner to be versatile in treating you effectively by finding the root cause of your pain at hand.

What is Cupping?

Cupping therapy technique involves gliding pressurized cups over the body. The suction creates a vacuum and a negative pressure ideal for tissue lift and separation. This forms an idea environment for releasing fluids and metabolic wastes trapped in the area.

Reduced circulation and muscle ache that occurs when you are sore can sometimes result in a throbbing sensation. The lift from the cups and the space created by the suction increases blood flow, separating muscle layers and promoting tissue healing which decreases your pain!

The lasting effects of cupping include separation of tissue layers that may otherwise remain tight and adhered to. No hands can replicate the lift and efficiency of the cups!

*Please note this technique is only practised by our Manual Osteopath, Kaylene Joseph.

What is Rapid NeuroFascial Reset?

RAPID NFR specifically targets the periosteal fascia which has the richest source of sensory free nerve endings in the body. By accessing this connective tissue, RAPID uses movement and a specific deep pressure to your issue at hand and works with your nervous system to reprogram/send the signal from you brain to the area we are working on to CHILL OUT AND HEAL.

With this kind of therapy, we are going right to the source of your pain. We’re working with EXACTLY where it hurts by stimulating the nervous system and instigating an inflammatory response to repair the area. 

*Please note this technique is only practised by our Manual Osteopath, Kaylene Joseph. 

 

What do I wear for an Osteopathic treatment?

Regular osteopathic treatments: Active wear is best for your appointment! A t-shirt, sweatpants or shorts will let us move you with out ease. 

Osteopathic + Cupping Treatments: Cupping will require the removal of your shirt and shorts should be worn for during this treatment style for men and women. 

 

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints.
