tension or provide that points therapeutic properties.
• Triggor point therapy: similar to acupressure deep pressure

Cranio Sacral/Visceral/Meridian therapy:

The compression of areas or holding sends signals to the central nervous system and/or meridian. This activates the area of the body to harmonize and bring homeostasis to the area of imbalance. Improving the circulation, eliminating lymph buildup and reducing pain or increasing function.
This is safe if the patient has acute or chronic ailments, recent truama such as car accidents and sports injury.
