Kinesiotaping is a specialised taping method for therapeutic and rehabilitative treatment that helps reduce pain, improve performance, prevent injury and promote lymphatic flow. The taping can be used on its own, but we often use it in combination with other methods for treating

· Helps in the reduction of pain Enhances muscle activation
· Improves circulation and lymphatic flow which is essential for reducing inflammation and swelling
· Protection during the healing process
· Prevention of further injury and improved performance
Dry Needling, unlike traditional acupuncture which typically uses points along meridians, dry needling targets anatomical structures including muscles, ligaments and joint capsules that are the underlying cause of muscle and joint related conditions.
· Decrease Pain
· Decrease Muscle Tension

Focuses on improving the function of your spine and pelvis, helping your nervous system and muscular system to function at its best.
Applied Kinesiology (Proprioceptive Muscle Testing) examines the patient’s nervous system and identifies any and all weaknesses which make you vulnerable to injury. This diagnostic technique system based on anatomy, neurology and physiology uncovers the best solution for that patient at that time to correct any dysfunction within the neuromuscular system
