Patients receiving physical medicine and rehabilitation care may benefit from the following:

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy stimulates circulation, relaxes muscles and reduces tension. It helps increase flexibility and range of motion as well as providing a sense of deep relaxation and greater vitality. Massage may help lower stress hormones and aid in more restful sleep.

Gentle Yoga

Yoga is a noncompetitive discipline that emphasizes how the body can find its own natural expression. The essence of yoga is to stretch without risk, to perform dynamic stretching sequences which enhance flexibility and strength, to tone muscles and joints, to improve functioning of the major organs of the body and reduce stress.

Reiki

Reiki can help to provide relaxation, relieve pain and muscle tension, decrease stress, expand one’s energy, enhance the immune system, create a profound sense of inner peace and well-being, and bring about significant positive change for the person receiving it. Reiki produces a deeply soothing and restorative experience.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture can help prevent pain by acting on the sympathetic nervous system and by stimulating the body to produce biochemical substances that help to reduce pain. When the entire body system is in balance, optimal health occurs. Acupuncture relieves obstructions to the flow of life force energy (Qi), and restores general balance. Acupuncture treatments are individualized based on the patient’s unique characteristics. Acupuncture has been helpful in the treatment of circulatory disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, addictions, musculoskeletal disorders, chronic pain, headaches, allergies and stress and anxiety disorders related to illness.
