Massage Therapy

JIM GABRIEL LMT, NMT, SET, brings thirty years of clinical and rehabilitative massage experience to the center. His specialties include Neuromuscular and Structural Energetic Therapy. In conjunction with these techniques, he utilizes computer assisted microcurrent to relieve pain, improve athletic performance and facilitate recovery from all manner of musculoskeletal injuries, scoliosis, stenosis, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraine headaches and to recondition scar tissue.

THE THERAPY TYPES

Massage Therapy (LMT)

SET & NMT are the primary pain relieving, rehabilitative techniques used at the center. Jim Gabriel is also trained in Romanian Medical Therapy which includes lymphatic drainage techniques to relieve edematous/lymph congestion due to injury, disease and/or surgery. Swedish Massage is used for relaxation and stress reduction.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)

NMT is a manual therapy that employs the scientific application of properly applied pressure to relieve pain and restore neuromuscular function. The NMT technique augments the SET therapy to relieve everything from carpal tunnel syndrome and TMJ migraine headaches to herniated discs and neck/back pain.

Structural Energetic Therapy (SET)

SET is an innovative myofascial therapy combined with cranial therapy that unwinds painful postural and injury strain patterns from the cranium down through the toes. Visual analysis and muscle testing are utilized throughout the unwinding process that restores balance and relieves pain.

Computer Assisted Microcurrent Therapy

I have used computer-assisted microcurrent via the Acuscope/Myopulse (EAMP) technology in my clinical practice since 1984. Originally developed by NASA scientists, EAMP employs low amperage electrotherapy to create semi-cybernetic electro stimulation. Each unit is guided by biofeedback mechanisms that measure physical response and conductivity in the body. It then determines, on a moment by moment basis, the corrective wave pattern suited to penetrate tissue and stimulate therapeutic results.

The formats in these units are designed to help people with pain, inflammation, stress, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, scar tissue, arthritis, shingles, TMJ dysfunction, torn ligaments, broken bones and other disorders. The Acuscope resonates on a cellular level with nerve tissue. The Myopulse resonates a cellular level with muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bursa, discs, etc.
