Adjunct to acupuncture, chiropractic, massage,

We have found that clients who receive more than one type treatment often have better and quicker outcomes, and the treatment we provide at Riverwind Therapeutics support and is supported by other types of treatment such as massage, acupuncture, chiropractic care, and counseling.

For example:

  • Individuals who have acupuncture have softer and healthier tissue and nervous systems that respond much quicker to manual treatments, even in older individuals. They also hold a treatment longer, increasing the benefit of the treatments.
  • Soft tissue work before a chiropractic adjustment can help the adjustment go smoother and last longer. Chiropractic adjustments take the strain off muscle and connective tissue, allowing them to release faster and more fully in manual therapy, decreasing pain and increasing movement faster.
  • Having a whole body massage release tension and tightness throughout the body, allowing us to get the problem area faster and have a more complete release of the tissue.

One of the axioms of body work is that when the tightness in the body is released, so may the issues the person is holding on to. Counseling and body work go hand in hand in recovery and progressing in life.
