Tui Na and Massage Therapy
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural approach to relieve muscular and joint pain. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapies that are complimentary to other patient care. Our massage therapy treatment plans are tailored to meet the patient's condition(s). The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling or inflammation and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and muscle spasms, increase a patient's range of motion; while also aiding in a patient recovery. Some investigative studies indicate that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Our providers teach patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which help strengthen or lengthen and correct imbalances in their body which may be the cause of pain or a major contributor. These corrective exercises may be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your care. You may be experiencing repetitive injury pain caused by hypertonic muscles or fibrotic connective tissues that remain in a state of constant inflammation. Our providers are well-equipped to resolve these issues. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are often caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly or poor posture causing injury over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor along with manual therapies will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and good health.
Many of our patients come to see our therapists to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain, or headaches. Our providers address each patient's specific condition with care; we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve; one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every patient is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with holistic care? Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Our goal of care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on diet, and nutritional supplements. Nutritional counseling by our experienced health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know if the supplements and vitamins you are taking are third party tested? At our Kirkland and Lynnwood clinics, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal and extraspinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Staff of ACI Health and Wellness can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved, pain-free healthy living. In order to help the Kirkland community we serve, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs, and places of employment. Contact us today at 425-285-9020 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
