Our treatment goal with any patient that enters our office is always to improve their overall health and wellness. The first step in this process, many times, begins with reducing and eliminating their symptoms ( e.g. pain, inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm).
Therapeutic modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation, traction, hot paraffin, cryotherapy (ice) and heat are often used as an adjunct to spinal and extremity adjustments to help speed the reduction of these symptoms.
Electrical Stimulation Modality is used to reduce muscle spasm and also has a pain sedating effect.
Traction is used to reduce gravity's compressive affect on the spine and discs.
Cryotherapy (ice) is used to reduce swelling and inflammation along with providing a local anesthetic action.
Therapeutic modalities are used to help speed the reduction of symptoms while the cause of the condition is corrected.
Without correcting the cause of the condition, the condition continues to occur over and over AND continues to get worse and worse.
Hello and welcome,
I'm Adriane Maxwell; Licensed Massage Practitioner (LMP) at Total Family Wellness. I was privileged to be taught the art and skill of Therapeutic Massage by a 25-year veteran Massage Practitioner at Fayetteville Technical Community College in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
I was led to return to my beautiful hometown, Beaufort, SC to share my therapeutic gift shortly after completing my certification. I have been a LMP in South Carolina since early 2015, after relocating from the Fort Bragg, NC area. I am now sharing the same gift in intriguing and charming Charleston area.
As a therapist I provide a patient-tailored massage experience combining treatment techniques such as, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy and more. Each session is designed to be effective and complete; wrapping the mind and body with peace, love, and tranquility.
I serve patients 16 years old and beyond with a special focus on women's care. As women we are often guilty of putting everyone and everything before ourselves. We have to commit to our wellness as well. And that starts with making conscious decisions on a daily basis.
I aim to nurture the whole person: mind, body, and spirit through skillful applications of intuitive massage strokes and Reiki energy. Creating a truly therapeutic experience.
What is Reiki (ray-key) you may ask? It's a Japanese technique used for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
I invite you to book your session now and experience healing, peace, and tranquility that cannot be matched. See you soon!
