Bodywork Treatments

Bodywork Treatments

We offer a variety of bodywork treatments at Tilo Medical & Acupuncture. They are each part of our comprehensive, whole body approach to wellness, and include:

  • Detox Bodywork is a full-body therapy that combines Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques with Lymphatic Drainage Therapy. It supports the immune system by reducing fluid retention and aiding toxin removal. The treatment incorporates the ancient technique of cupping combined with a gentle exfoliation treatment to cleanse the body, improve circulation and enhance the body’s own healing capacity.
  • Deep Tissue Massage is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscles and connective tissue. It uses many of the same movements and techniques as does Swedish massage, but the pressure is more intense and focused as the therapist works to release any chronic muscle tension.
  • Sports Massage is used before, during and after athletic events to prepare the athlete for peak performance, lessen fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and prevent injury.
  • Reflexology uses specific techniques to apply pressure to the feet, hands and ears. It works through a system of zones and reflex areas in the feet, hands and ears that reflect the entire body, where specific pressure facilitates a healthful physical change to the corresponding body parts.
  • Lymphatic Drainage Therapy consists of massage that focuses on restoring the natural flow of the lymphatic system to promote health in physical systems such as the circulatory, respiratory, muscular and endocrine systems.
  • Trigger Point Therapy addresses the points (called trigger points) where waste products accumulate around a nerve receptor. This toxic accumulation increases pain and muscle tension in overused or injured muscles throughout the body. Trigger point massage therapy alleviates the source of pain by applying isolated pressure and release to specific trigger points. The client actively participates in the treatment through deep breathing and identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment.
