Aquatic Therapy is based on the practice that our bodies have the ability to heal themselves when allowed to sense the potential for movement and alignment in the physical, emotional and spiritual terms.
The support of the water takes weight off the vertebrae and allows the spine to be moved in ways impossible on land. The warmth of the water (94-96 degrees) and the nurturing experience of an aquatic therapy session will help to promote relaxation, decrease fatigue and release muscle tension.
Therapy sessions are completely private and one hour long, allowing for a period to unwind at the beginning and an unrushed exit from the pool at the end. Our services include private changing and shower area, organic cotton and bamboo robes and a serene environment.
Low Level Laser Therapy
At IWC we have incorporated a new therapeutic treatment that has been approved by the FDA for treating acute and chronic pain. Low-level light therapy (LLLT) treatments are safe and can be used with the assurance that there are no side effects aside from accelerated healing. Also called cold laser because it has no thermal effect, LLLT can penetrate soft tissue up to three inches and functions by stimulating photochemical reactions in the cells to accelerate the body’s own natural healing process. LLLT uses red and near infrared light targeted at the injury or area of pain resulting in healing from the inside out.
A laser appointment at IWC is typically 15 minutes long, though an initial consultation may need to occur if the patient is not established in our clinic. Patients report either feeling nothing during their treatment or feeling a slight tingling or warmth under the skin where the laser is applied. Results depend on the type and duration of the condition treatment is sought for and IWC practitioners create a treatment plan to help determine the number of laser visits that are appropriate for various conditions.
IWC practitioners have had great success treating these ailments
Energy Balancing Pro-Ionic Foot Bath
Our Ionic foot bath is designed specifically to enhance the body’s natural ability to detoxify. The Ionic Foot bath works by creating a low intensity ion field. By immersing the feet in the ionized water you expose all of the primary meridians in the body. This allows the body to release ionically bound materials (toxins). This ionization also stimulates capillaries and lymphatic channels to transport the toxins to the liver and kidneys where they are detoxified and excreted out of the body.
