Myofascial Release Treatment
Myofascial Release (MFR) therapy is a whole-body treatment that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to eliminate restrictions. Normally the fascial system moves freely and helps the body absorb shock during daily activities, but when we sustain trauma through falls, accidents, surgeries or inflammation, our fascial system starts to solidify. This solidification causes decreased flexibility, pain, and tightness. When our fascia starts to harden in one area, it can put tension on adjacent pain-sensitive structures, as well as creating a drag on distant areas. This sets our bodies up for more trauma and pain as we are pulled out of alignment. Over time, this tension can create bizarre symptoms that we can now identify with the fascial system (burning, cramping, difficulty breathing, headaches, numbness and tingling). Myofascial Release treatment relieves our bodies of the daily aches and pains, allowing us to return to a pain-free, active lifestyle.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Lymphatic therapy addresses the lymphatic system, an important part of the immune system. This treatment uses very light, rhythmic movements to increase flow of lymphatic fluid through the system. Lymphatic drainage treatment is highly effective in reducing inflammation, especially post-surgery or after injury, such as sports injuries. Lymphatic drainage can also help stimulate the immune response when recovering from an illness, or when struggling with handling seasonal changes. Lymphatic drainage treatments have been successful when treating clients suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and Lyme disease.
Natural Balance Therapy has therapists who specialize in the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction. Fascial restrictions within the pelvis can be caused from past traumas including pregnancy and falls, poor posture, and scarring from previous abdominal/pelvic surgeries. Myofascial Release, manual therapy techniques, and proper retraining of the pelvic floor muscles has produced successful outcomes for both men and women struggling with the following:
• Urinary incontinence
• Painful or difficult urination
• Chronic pelvic pain
• Pre- and post-pregnancy
• Menstrual or menopausal symptoms
• Sexual health
• Fertility issues
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive hands-on technique to restore normal position and motion to the bones of the skull, spine and sacrum, and to restore cerebro-spinal fluid flow. This technique is performed by using a light touch to monitor the rhythm of the craniosacral system to detect potential restrictions and imbalances and help alleviate illness, pain and dysfunction.
An innovative technique that focuses on the internal organs. The visceral system relies on the interconnected synchronicity between the motions of all the organs and structures of the body. When an organ cannot move in harmony with its neighbors, it paves the way to disease and dysfunction. By using this gentle technique, our therapists are able to enhance tissue movement and mobility to help improve the function of the organs and decrease pain to promote your body’s natural healing process.
Hi I am interested in knowing the cost of MFR therapy and the duration of a session?
thank you for your interest in our services. We sent you an email with more information.
I’m curious to know if these treatments are covered by health insurance?
What is the typical time frame of treatments? Length of treatment and typical time between sessions?
Thank you for your questions.
NBT does not participate with any insurance providers, and clients are required to pay in full at the time of service. A statement can be provided by request if someone would like to self-submit to their insurance provider (not available for Medicare). When clients are looking to submit to insurance, we encourage them to contact our clinic prior to their first visit and we would be happy to provide them an insurance worksheet that they can use to contact their insurance carrier and check to see if our services would be covered.
All sessions are 60 minutes in length. Every person coming into the clinic has a different history and we aren’t able to provide length of treatment needed without assessing someone. Typically, most clients are seen every 7-10 days for the first 3-4 sessions, unless they are receiving lymphatic care which is less frequent. If we see clients less frequently initially then we have found that due to chronic patterns the body doesn’t respond as quickly, and the client won’t have a clear understanding if the work is helping them.
Our first step with all potential new clients is to help them determine if we are a good fit by scheduling a free, 15 minute phone call with one of our therapists. On our website you can schedule your free call by going to our home page and clicking a request consultation button.
