Innovative solution for soft tissue therapy. Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation or simply IASTM is a new range of tool which enables clinicians to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction. The technique itself is said to be a modern evolution from Traditional Chinese Medicine called Gua Sha. However, Gua Sha was not used to treating Musculoskeletal conditions but was traditionally applied along meridians to move the bad chi out through the skin. IASTM is a procedure that is rapidly growing in popularity due to its effectiveness and efficiency while remaining non-invasive, with its own indications and limitations.
The Kinesio-Taping Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.
This method presents a complete biomechanical model that assists in deciphering the role of fascia in musculoskeletal disorders. In recent years, Prof. Carla Stecco MD and Dr. Antonio Stecco MD have carried out extensive research into the anatomy and histology of the fascia via dissection of unembalmed cadavers in Italy and France. These dissections have provided new histological and anatomical data including the existence of myotendinous expansions between segments, the multi-layer structure of the deep fascia and the abundant innervation of the tissue by mechanoreceptors and free nerve endings.
The Dorn Method is a gentle vertebra and joint treatment. It can be helpful for treating illnesses directly or indirectly connected to the spinal column. It is completely safe but still very effective. Our skeleton should be symmetrical, harmonic and in a static-dynamic alignment equilibrium. When we 'upset' this 'bone order' then our joints may be moved out of place especially in the spine. The results of long-term 'bone dislocations' are as diverse as there are names for illnesses today. When the skeleton is re-aligned people often feel better fast and symptoms of illness can disappear or abate.
Medicinal Leech Therapy
Hirudotherapy (Medicinal Leeches Therapy) is a scientifically proven treatment using medicinal leeches. Hirudo medicinalis, Hirudo Verbana or Hirudo Orientalis have been used to treat patients for centuries. In the past, leeches have proved to be an effective treatment for a number of conditions including battle wound treatment. Currently, leeches may be used to assist in the treatment of abscesses, arthritis, glaucoma, myasthenia gravis, thrombosis and some venous disorders. Medical leeches may also be used in plastic surgery and in some blood circulatory problems. During feeding, leeches secrete a complex mixture of different biologically and pharmacologically active substances into the wound. Hirudin is the prominent constituent of leech saliva. It is sometimes used to describe all the active constituents in the leech saliva.
