Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is not myofascial release, rolfing, deep tissue massage, neuromuscular technique, acupressure, trigger point therapy, or any other form of bodywork that you may be familiar with. These are unique procedures that allow Gordon Wallis, LMT, to take manual therapy to another level.
 
The site of pain is never directly worked on, and often it is never touched. There is no digging at damaged tissue; No collateral damage. Special reflex areas far distant from the area of pain are touched, initiating one of several neurological reflexes that immediately relax the contracted damaged muscle tissue, resulting in pain relief. 
Some of the neurological reflexes include:
Inverse myotatic (Golgi tendon) reflex
Righting reflex
Cortical homunculus
Pfluger's Law of Symmetry
