Testimonial
Stretch Therapy with Carrie K!

 

"I have had two sessions of stretch therapy with Carrie Kelsey that have helped my problem SO MUCH!  When Dr. Wissinger suggested it, I had no idea what it really was. I naturally thought it was someone standing in front of me teaching me how to stretch and me following the stretching routine.  Stretch therapy isn't that at all!  You wear loose clothing and lay on a massage table. Carrie moves your problem limbs around to assess how your muscle tension is and where you are somewhat stuck.  Then she begins a very comfortable routine of taking your limbs, and body through carefully calculated stretching, holding the stretch, having you breathe into it and then pushing the stretch just a bit more to get past the resistance.  I realized right away that it really isn't something you can effectively do for yourself and how valuable it is to get some real stretching into the muscles. 

Carrie is very cheerful, pleasant and attentive to her precise task. She really knows what she's doing as a professional facial stretch therapist and I would certainly recommend this service.

CORRECTIVE EXERCISE & THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE

 

Healing Hands Clinic of Natural Therapies also offers Physical Therapy and Corrective Exercise specialists providing a wide range of treatment options. 

Maintaining the clinics belief that the body should be treated as a whole, not as separate parts, we take a functional approach to physical therapy. After a full evaluation of a patient’s strengths, weaknesses, imbalances and functional abilities a specific rehabilitation program is created.

We believe that rehabilitation should begin at its most elementary level and build the body up from there! You would never build a house on unstable soil, nor would you assemble a car on a weak frame! This holds true for the body as well! The small core stabilizing muscles adjacent to the spine, as well as the abdominal and pelvic girdle need to be strengthened and conditioned first. Once the foundation (the body’s core) is strong you can build the house (the larger muscles). As previously stated this is done with a functional approach. The initial examination assesses what muscles groups are working well together (specific firing patterns) and which muscles are firing out of order. The physical therapy at our clinic directly works to improve or correct firing patterns of the muscles to optimize the body’s stability, strength and performance.
