Auto accidents are an unfortunate occurance that can turn your life upside down. Not only can your car be damaged, making it more difficult to get around, but your body can sustain injuries that can be debilitating.

Therapies

Connective Tissue Therapy

When traumatic events like car accidents occur our bodies are affected on many different levels. The most apparent is the pain that we feel in the tissues of the body (neck and back pain, headaches, sore muscles, stiffness, etc.) These symptoms can be greatly reduced with Connective Tissue Therapy. This therapy works directly with the tissues of the body in an effective way to return them to their origianal, healthy state of function. (read more in Treatments)

 

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Another very important layer is what happens within the nervous system.  Just before or right after impact the "fight, flight, or freeze response" is activated. This is felt as a massive increase of energy within the system.  Since there isn't the option of running away or fighting, the nervous system goes to the "freeze" response.  So, internally it's like the nervous system is going 100mph but outwardly there is an immobilization of the body.  What can then happen is that if the increased energy in the nervous system is not discharged properly it can get "stuck" and manifest as trauma.  This can also make your recovery take longer if not properly dealt with. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is an amazing tool for working with the nervous system to help it settle and discharge any stuck energy, leading to a faster and more full recovery.

"I saw Luke after a car accident. He had great insight with my particular issues and helped me heal. Without his skills, I would not be able to do everything I need to. I happily recommend him to anyone needing a massage therapist."
