Acupressure Stress elimination technique (ase):
Developed by Dr Eric Berg, there are two main branches of ASE:
- Acupressure Stress Elimination Technique: The goal of ASE is to help balance the meridians and relieve stress particularly from old injuries.
- Neural Pathway Technique or NPT: NPT works to raise the energy of weak meridian points to help with sleep and pain issues. These techniques are always done clothed.
Orthopedic massage provides amazing results in chronic pain issues. It involves therapeutic assessment, manipulation and movement of locomotor soft tissue to reduce pain and dysfunction. Restoring structural balance throughout the body allows us to focus on both prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
