Massage therapy is a great way to ease muscle tension and promote relaxation. Through the strategic manual manipulation of soft tissues, massage can help increase blood circulation, bring more nutrients to problem areas, and effectively treat pain problems. It can be a great adjunct to acupuncture treatments, or can be very beneficial on its own. Our licensed massage therapists are experienced with treating a wide range of issues using a variety of massage techniques including deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, sports massage, Thai massage, and prenatal massage. Each session is individually tailored to a person’s specific needs and comfort levels.
Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT)
MAT is a unique manual therapy aimed at restoring muscle and joint balance. Unlike most therapeutic methods, Muscle Activation Techniques™ (MAT) looks at muscle tightness as a form of protection in the body. Weak or inhibited muscles can create the need for other muscles to tighten up in order to help stabilize the joints. MAT gets to the root of the pain or injury by addressing muscle weakness rather than muscle tightness. This helps to restore normal body alignment, thereby decreasing pain and reducing the risk of injury. MAT can give you a new lease on your active lifestyle, whether you are a pro athlete or weekend warrior. MAT can help you return to the golf course, tennis court, ski slopes, or athletic field with renewed strength and without pain. With MAT, athletes and active people of all ages can perform at a higher level without injury, allowing them to “stay in the game”.
Our MAT specialist is Ralph Klisiewicz, a certified personal trainer who has over 15 years of experience working with clients of all ages and fitness levels. He is certified through the National Academy of Sports and Medicine as a personal trainer and has completed the MAT Specialist Training Program. He is a certified MAT Specialist and has 10 years of experience in treating muscle and joint imbalances using this innovative therapy. He is passionate about fitness and helping people live a healthy pain free lifestyle.
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and restore proper function to the spine and nervous system. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment is the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment to help correct misalignments, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting the body to recuperate on its own.
At our wellness center, we work side by side with Chicago Pain & Wellness, a highly rated provider of chiropractic services in the Chicago Loop. To find out more about chiropractic care, please visit www.chicagopainwell.com.
