Swedish Massage: Swedish massage uses a variety of long, flowing strokes of differing pressures that are applied to the body. It has been proven to provide significant benefits: reduces muscle tension; decreases stress & related conditions; helps prevent injury by improving the condition of muscles; greatly reduces the development of adhesions and scar tissue. It encourages an overall sense of relaxation and well-being and can be used as a preventative, rehabilitative or maintenance treatment. Treatments can be relaxing or therapeutic, gentle or deep.
Myofascial Release: Is a massage technique used for stretching fascia and releasing adhesions between fascia and muscles and involves applying tension in various directions. A slow, sustained pressure is used to sink into restricted area(s); pressure is slowly released once the restriction has diminished. The goal is to increase range of motion, flexibility, eliminate pain of restriction.
Esalen Deep Tissue: Deep bodywork that involves energetic balancing of the body and uses long, fluid strokes with no break in contact with the body. The treatment is delivered slowly to allow the client`s tissues to adjust to the pressure. rovides advanced skills in injury prevention, immediate care and rehabilitation.
Active Release Therapy: ART uses hand pressure to specific tissue to remove or break up fibrous adhesions, while using a stretching motion of the tissue. Using the associated joint ranges of motion to guide the release of the tissue has excellent results.
“Osteopathy is the knowledge of the structure, relation and function of each part of the human
body applied to the correction of whatever interferes with its harmonious operation.”
- George V. Webster, D.O., 1921
Osteopathic manual practitioners use their palpatory skill to seek out areas of the body that are restricted (not moving normally) or constricted (strangled or squeezed). These areas can be in or impact any of the systems, such as the musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, reproductive or nervous systems.
Osteopathic manual practitioners seek to identify and then gently ease the restrictions or constrictions so the body can function normally again.
Manual osteopathy is based on 4 basic principles:
1.Each structure in the body supports the body’s functions. If a structure is damaged, out of place, or otherwise not working properly, the body will not function at its best.
2.The natural flow of the body’s fluids – lymphatic, vascular, and neurological – must be preserved and maintained.
3.The human body is the sum of its parts. Its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems don’t work independently, they work in harmony.
4.When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.
Osteopathic manual practitioners recognize that a patient is an integrated whole. When all the body’s components are in balance, a person is complete and in total health.

Conventionally the word Kinesiology means the study of motion, in particular the study of how muscles act and coordinate to move the body. Kinesiologists are trained to evaluate posture, core stability, as well as assess the bodies ability to complete functional movements. Kinesiologists at Basic Motion work with you to enhance proper movement mechanics, core stability, as well as develop strength training techniques and routines in order to support these movements.
