Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Electrical Intramuscular Stimulation (EIMS)
EIMS procedure is a proprietary treatment developed by Dr. Yelizarov based on his experience treating sports injuries as a medical doctor and an acupuncturist. EIMS combines acupuncture and electrical stimulation to dramatically reduce pain and healing time by improving blood circulation in the injured muscle and speeding up recovery. Typically, the recovery time is reduced by 50% compared to other conventional treatment options. Such impressive results are possible because EIMS delivers treatment exactly where it is needed in brief, pain-free sessions.

Massage has long been accepted as an effective tool in helping the body recover from acute and chronic injuries through manipulation and stimulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to promote blood circulation as well as to relieve pain, tension and swelling. At our clinic, we offer the following types of massage to promote recovery from lifestyle, sport, work and trauma related injuries
Swedish massage, the classic massage style popular in the Western countries uses gliding, kneading, tapping, friction and shaking strokes to stimulate the muscles. Swedish massage is helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis.
Deep Tissue Manipulation
Deep massage is effective in treating chronic conditions. It uses pressure and deep friction to break down and disperse scars and injured tissue. It can help relieve pain, reduce and prevent adhesions in post-acute injuries, treat lesions in muscle, tendons & other connective tissues, as well as improve joint mobility and muscle extensibility. We recommend a minimum of 2 visits to achieve the full benefit.
Tui Na is a hands-on body treatment that is very similar to medical massage. It utilizes Traditional Chinese Medicine and martial arts principles to relieve tension and promote healing. Manual Lymphatic Drainage Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which encourages the drainage of the lymph, a body fluid which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. This type of massage is helpful in treating acute and chronic inflammation and swelling. Myofascial Release Myofascial release is helpful in the treatment of skeletal muscle stiffness and pain. It relaxes and stretches contracted muscles, as well as improves blood and lymphatic circulation. Practitioners use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the fascia by applying deep pressure.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy focuses on identifying and releasing the trigger points, or painful knots within the muscle. This type of therapy is helpful in alleviating muscle pain, as well as improving range of motion and flexibility of the muscle.
Reflexology is a based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears and their referral areaswithin zone related areas, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. By applying pressure on these reflexes, a practitioner can relieve tension, improve circulation and promote healing in the related areas of the body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine incorporates a wide variety of techniques to restore the body to its natural state of well being. At our clinic, we focus on the following treatments that help patients recover from their lifestyle, sport, work or trauma related injuries
Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is an ancient form of healing which pre-dates recorded history. It promotes healing through application of hair-thin needles to key points along the body. Acupuncture is increasingly gaining acceptance in Western societies, as an effective form of treatment for a variety of conditions including all forms of chronic pain, migraines, arthritis, osteoarthritis and migraines. It promotes healing by reducing inflammation, improving blood circulation, and helping the muscles relax.
Cupping is a therapy which stimulates blood flow and Qi (energy) within the muscles by applying small glass “cups” over the affected areas of the body. Therapeutic effect is produced by the gentle suction of the cup which may stay in place or be moved to massage the muscles, leaving the body feeling relaxed and invigorated. This treatment is effective for relieving neck, shoulder and back pain or tension.
Acupressure uses different massage techniques to stimulate specific acupuncture points. It is a marvelous alternative for patients with a fear of needles, for children and for those who are especially weak. It'seffective for acute and chronic pain conditions.
Moxibustion involves applying a heated herb, Artemisia vulgaris (Mugwort) to a specific point on the body to warm the skin and to blood circulation and energy flow through the body to relieve pain and discomfort.
Gua Sha is a rubbing technique applied to the skin to release muscle tension. It involves repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a specialized tool, which feels like a deep massage. It may leave slight redness which quickly dissipates.
Physiotherapy is a proven and effective alternative for relieving pain and helping the body recover from recent and past injuries as well as for alleviating symptoms of chronic conditions. Physiotherapy can help you restore, sustain and maximize your strength, function and mobility so you can get back to the lifestyle and activities you enjoy. At our clinic, we specialize in hands-on, soft-touch, Full Body Fascial Facilitation physiotherapy (FBFF), that helps reduce pain and re-align displaced and dysfunctional areas of the body. FBFF is largely influenced by Mr. Samorodin’s extensive studies in Craniosacral Therapy, integrated with other manual (hands-on) therapy methods.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It relies on soft touch to release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. It is an effective treatment for migraines & headaches, stress related disorders, chronic neck and back pain and other spine related conditions.
Neurostructural Integration (Advanced Bowen Technique)
The Neurostructural Integration Technique is one of the leading techniques in structural and spinal therapy for lasting pain relief and recovery. NIT consists of a series of gentle moves targeting specific muscles at precise points on the body to facilitate energy flow and muscle relaxation. NIT works by initiating a process of auto-regulation in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body. It is helpful for a number of conditions including: neck, shoulder and back pain.
Visceral Manipulation relies on soft touch technique that helps release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction in your body. The treatment consists of a gentle compression, mobilization and elongation of the soft tissues. It is helpful in treating whiplash, chest or abdominal sports injuries, chronic back pain, headaches and migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint pain, sciatica, among others.
Thermography is an innovative diagnostic tool used at our clinic to detect muscle injuries. It is the only tool available today that shows precisely the areas affected by the injury. Thermography is based on the fact that different parts of the human body have different temperatures. The machine “takes a picture” of the heat that your body emits and displays it in a progression of colors. Red colors, or higher temperatures point to an acute inflammation and blue, or lower temperatures indicate a scar or a chronic inflammation. To experience it, book your initial diagnostic session today.
