Functional Movement Therapy


These therapies are designed to find the root cause of your musculoskeletal and joint pain. Aimed to facilitate the healing process so you can move freely without pain, improve vascular and joint health and prevent this pain from returning in the future.  

Michael uses Functional Movement Therapy (FMT) to help facilitate your body’s healing process.


What is Functional Movement Therapy?

FMT is a way to bring balance to the vascular and nervous system to facilitate healing.   

Healthy function and movement of your joints and vascular systems is key to doing activities without pain.


Functional Movement Therapy (FMT) is a protocol to get to the root cause of this myofascial and structural imbalance.  This therapy targets the parasympathetic response of the nervous system to reset or release fascial compression that is inhibiting proper blood flow and nerve communication.  The nervous system controls every function in the body.  This is the root cause that needs to function optimally for cell repair, cell growth and daily autonomic functions that keep you healthy and vibrant. 

Michael can help you to not only repair and recover your body after it has sustained an injury, he can also help you to maintain optimal health in everyday life. Massage therapy should not just be a treatment that is only required when you have muscular pain or after an injury has occurred. It is an important part of sustaining health by helping maintain homeostasis—a term that refers to regulating the variables within your body. This ensures that your internal conditions remain stable and continue to function properly.

  2. Exercises or stretches to improve mobility, stability and strength.
  3. Cupping therapy to decompress high pressure in the tissues that restrict blood flow.
  4. Trigger point therapy and cervical traction.
  5. Myofascial Release
  6. Post-care home exercises using foam roller, balls, bands, etc.
  7. Heat therapy to improve circulation and promote relaxation.

Michael will create a strategy that best fits your individual needs. You are unique. We can get you moving, feeling and playing at your best!

Ultrasonic Slimming Cavitation


Non-invasive alternative to Liposuction.  Melt cellulite, fat cells and tighten skin with sound waves. 


  • Tighten loose belly skin after pregnancy
  • Reduce excess loose skin after signifacant weight loss
  • Reduce cellulite dimpling on thighs and hips
  • Reduce fat in any area of the body 

Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation uses ultrasound to cause a cavitation effect    ( bubbles ) in the inter cellular fluid surrounding subcutaneous fat cells. This action causes the fat cells to rupture, while all other cellular membranes, tissues and systems remain unaffected. When the fat cells are ruptured the contents of the fat cells; triglycerides and adipocytes are released into the body and absorbed by the body's lymphatic system and then processed out of the body through the liver by the body's natural metabolism. 

Radio Frequency 

Radio Frequency uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate the production of sub dermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin and the reduction of pore size. This technology induces tissue remodeling and the production of new collagen and elastin to provide the epidermis with a more supple and youthful appearance and provides an alternative to surgical skin tightening. Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is a simple procedure to perform.  It works great in conjunction with Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation as well.  It can be used on the entire body. It is also know as the, "Non Surgical Face Lift." 


High Intensity Light Wave

High intensity 650nm light transmits thermal energy into the subcutaneous fat cells, creating a chemical signal that causes the fat cell to break down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, releasing them though the cell membrane causing the cell to shrink through contraction. The fatty acids are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them to create energy. Exercise after the procedure is required to metabolize the free fatty acids for permanent results..


This is latest in technology for non invasive fat reduction and skin tightening.  No scarring, no surgery, no downtime.  Affordable pricing for you to reach your goals in a relaxing and supportive atmosphere.  


Ultrasonic Cavitation creates low frequency acoustic waves which produces increased pressure on fat cells which breaks the cell wall and the stored fat is eliminated through your lymphatic system. Cellulite and fat literally are melted away. 


            



How to get optimal results from your treatments


  • Drink 34 oz or 1 litre of water 
     - As a result of this process Triglycerides are released into circulatory and lymphatic system which are processed by the kidneys or become lipoproteins in the liver.  Your body is approximately 60% water which you need for optimal medabolic function.  Your Liver and kidneys are going to be working overtime to flush out the fat and byproducts.  Increaseing your water intake
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages before and after on the day of the treatment. 
    - The metabolism of alcohol will inhibit the metabolic breakdown of the disintegrated fat cells and impede the elimination of fat in the area treated.
  • Spend 15 to 30 minutes in any type of physical activity such as walking, bicycle riding, swimming or some type of muscular exercise. This will help stimulate the metabolism and elimination of the disintegrated fat cells in the treated area. 

            Following this protocol will ensure that you achieve the optimum results from your ultrasonic cavitation therapy. 

 


  A 30min cardio workout is a must immediately following each session.  This includes a brisk walk or an aerobic workout.  We provide NASA's top proven Rebounder for the BEST workout without the pressure on your joints.  Rebounding also opens and closes the lymph system to further assist the fat to be processed through the body.  One (1) Liter of water must be consumed before and after your treatment.  A week of Pre and Post treatment Liver Cleansing is a must for optimal function of the liver as it processes your unwanted fat.  We highly suggest a Far Infrared Sauna Treatment in between treatments to help assist the body in flushing.  6-12 Treatments to get the most out of your sessions, 1-2 sessions per week.
