Body Group approaches physiotherapy in a unique way IF THE DAILY stresses of life are affecting your physical being, physiotherapy can help. The Body Group, which opened in May, promotes itself as a centre offering a new approach to physiotherapy. Traditional physiotherapy methods are combined with the latest in manual therapy techniques which provide faster and better results to sufferers of chronic and acute disorders. Services include: CranioSacral therapy CST is a light-touch therapy working with the craniosacral system - the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. The system has a rhythmic movement which practitioners use to identify an obstruction. Practitioners gently manipulate the cranium (bones of the skull, face and mouth) and the sacrum (a triangular bone at the base of the spine). Manipulation helps make physical adjustments to release restrictions and help stimulate the body's natural healing mechanism. CST can help treat chronic and acute conditions, including migraine, neck and back pain, and stress-related problems. Lymph Drainage Therapy LDT is the application of gentle, rhythmic massage. Therapists use their hands to perform manual lymphatic mapping of the lymphatic vessels to determine blocked fluids, and the best pathways for draining lymph and other body fluids which remove bacteria and infection from the body. Integrative Manual Therapy Some therapies address particular issues within the body, while IMT addresses the body as a whole. Therapists use palpitation techniques to 'listen' with their hands to the rhythms of each bodily system. The therapy is used to find the source of pain and the symptom, and through continually revisiting the diagnostic process, layers of dysfunction (one dysfunction can hide another) can be treated. NAET for Allergy Elimination NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, named after the doctor that invented it) is a combination of medical subjects including acupuncture, chiropractic, kinesiology and nutrition. The treatment works by stimulating pressure points along the spine from the neck to the sacrum, while the patient is holding the object that causes an allergy.
