New Vibrations

About New Vibrations 
New Vibrations, Myofascial Release Treatment Center, is a healing environment that is designed to assist the growth and healing between the mind, body and spirit. We all have the capability to heal our own bodies; therefore, we are all healers in our own right. Our clinic model emphasizes an overall goal of independent self-management of symptoms with a strong promotion for individual health and wellness versus dependency on someone else to heal or “fix” our clients problems.

New Vibrations is a treatment center that brings like minded practitioners into the same environment and is designed to assist in global awareness shifts that incorporate not just one aspect of medicine but all aspects. We are committed to combining eastern and western philosophies into our treatment paradigm. This enables us to examine not just the symptoms and diagnoses, but rather the whole system.

Myofascial Release: Myofascial release (MFR) is a hands-on, skin-on-skin, full body treatment that emphasizes gentle sustained pressure in to the fascial system. No lotions or oils are used and clients will be asked to avoid applying lotions or oils prior to a treatment session. During a treatment, you can expect a full assessment of your fascial system with truly individualized care. 

The goal is to listen to the body and treat accordingly, thus some aspects of treatment may be the same as the previous session and other sessions may emphasize regions of the body that have not yet been addressed. By truly listening to the body, versus going into a session with a strict agenda, results will occur at an accelerated rate and will be long lasting. Current symptoms are often the result of old, unresolved injury or trauma. You may have forgotten about these old injuries, but your body has not!

Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy: Manual Physical Therapy can be defined as any “hands-on” treatment provided by the physical therapist. In the presence of decreased joint mobility (hypomobility), that is known to be dysfunctional, mobilization (defined as the skilled passive movement to a joint) is warranted. Muscle stretching, passive movements of the affected body part, or having the patient move the body part to improve muscle activation and timing are all examples of manual physical therapy. Myofascial release prior to mobilization is used to prepare the tissue so that improved mobility of the joint and improved function of the surrounding tissues and muscles is much more easily attained.

Women's Health and Men’s Pelvic Health: Pelvic floor muscle dysfunction can be the underlying cause of urinary and bowel dysfunction, pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction. These muscles lie between the pubic bone and tailbone and create a sling of support for the pelvic contents. They not only help to hold our pelvic organs in place, but are also responsible for bladder and bowel control, sexual functioning, and are a part of our core musculature that protects and provides stability to our low backs. Therefore, when the muscles are tight or weak, they can cause pain and /or dysfunction of the bladder, bowel, and genitals (sexual organs). 

Myofascial restrictions (adhesions) and myofascial trigger points are often present in the pelvic floor muscles, and in the abdominal, pelvic and lower extremity regions following difficult labor and delivery, post-surgically following caesarian section, episiotomy and hysterectomy in women, any pelvic surgery in men, and any trauma to the lumbar and pelvic region in both men and women. Proper treatment can minimize and eradicate the often long-standing and perplexing symptoms associated with diagnoses such as: interstitial cystitis, pudendal neuralgia, urinary incontinence, increased frequency and/or urgency, vulvodynia, endometriosis, fibromyalgia, coccygeal (tailbone) pain, painful intercourse, fertility problems, menstrual problems, and painful scars.  
Physical Therapy is indicated as part of a multi-disciplinary medical intervention. Please do not hesitate to call and discuss any sensitive issues you may be experiencing, whether or not physical therapy is appropriate for you at this time, or to inquire further about evaluation and treatment procedures.

Trigger Point Dry Needling(TPDN): Myofascial trigger point dry needling is not acupuncture. In fact, the only similarity with acupuncture is the needle itself.  It is absolutely contraindicated in pregnant women, and is not performed if myofascial trigger points (active or latent) can not be palpated. Trigger points are hypersensitive and painful nodules located in taut bands that can be palpated in skeletal muscle.  They can create pain and dysfunction at the site or at a distant site such as pain down an arm or leg. The skin is penetrated and the trigger point is the target. It is an adjunct to manual physical therapy. When you see a skilled healthcare practitioner, like a physical therapist, who has been trained in identifying myofascial trigger points and trained in intramuscular dry needling, they can help you determine if this approach will be beneficial for you.   

At New Vibrations: Myofascial Release Treatment Center, we highly regard and recommend the use of acupuncture, by a licensed and nationally board certified acupuncturist, as part of a multi-disciplinary medical intervention and as part of any health and wellness regime.

Kinesio Taping: Kinesio Taping has become the standard for therapeutic taping in the U.S.  This method of taping has taken the rehabilitation and sports medicine world by storm since its development by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 20 years ago in Japan. The tape is uniquely designed and patented and is latex free. The tape should be worn for several days per application and provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. It is used to provide muscle support, to prevent over contraction of a muscle and/or to help eliminate swelling. The taping technique is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process without restricting the body’s range of motion. A patient/client or a family member can be present and instructed fairly easily in the self-application of the taping method.
