Myofascial release is a special, very effective and extremely gentle approach to relieve tightness and stress within the body. It helps reduce muscle tightness and fatigue in torticollis, toe walking, and spasmatic muscles in cerebral palsy, etc.
Massage is an ancient approach to soothe a body in pain, stress and fatigue.
Family Education and Training
We believe that the therapeutic activities learned at our facility need to be continuously practiced at home, in the park etc. throughout the days, weeks, and months to come. In order to achieve this, parents and siblings are involved in therapy and educated about the activities. Besides, it is much more fun to do exercises with a "buddy" like Mom or Sister than alone.
