Relaxation techniques 
are manual techniques such as "Effleurage" or "Swedish traditional" that facilitate soothing signals that activate the parasympathetic (autonomic) responses; and facilitate restorative and reparative processes critical for our mental and physical health and well being.

are Active Range-of-Motion or Resisted Range-of-Motion type of specific exercises used to activate/ stimulate/ (re)train/ condition/ elongate target muscles or joints or groups of structures.

Myofascial treatments
target the myofascia (a network of non-contractile connective tissues that wrap around neuromuscular structures) through superficial compressions and torsion techniques and/or lifting as in "myofascial cupping"

Lymphatic drainage
is a manual technique meant to assist the movement of lymphatic fluids into secondary lymphoid organs which can also directly impact venous flows; and can help reduce local inflammation (edema)

Deep tissue (muscle + tendon) rehabilitation techniques
such as a) muscle fiber stripping b) Golgi-Tendon-Organ work c) cross-fiber friction
are meant to stimulate muscle relaxation and/or control inflammation and assist in tissue repair and scar tissue remodeling while working directly on muscle and tendinous structures

Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretches
are active and manual resisted techniques that uses the relaxation reflexes of muscles to elicit a contraction and/or release of targeted agonist and antagonist muscle pairs

Basic Watsu™ (water + shiatsu)
is the foundation of the Watsu aquatic bodywork modality in which patients are floated and introduced to a series of passive range-of-motion techniques on different joints i.e. spine, to elicit deep relaxation states and increased passive range-of-motion

Water Release Therapy™
is a Yoga inspired aquatic bodywork technique that introduces floating patients to a series of passive-range-of motion movements and "postures" to release neuromuscular "tightness" that are sometimes associated with psycho-emotional sensations
