Psychodynamic therapy is a form of psychotherapy that is rooted in the psychodynamic theory of psychology. It is one of the oldest and most well-established therapeutic approaches, originating from the work of Sigmund Freud and his colleagues in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The therapy aims to help individuals gain insight into their unconscious thoughts and emotions, understand how past experiences influence their current behaviors, and develop coping mechanisms for current life challenges.

Swimmers Massage Santa Barbara

Swimmers prepare for intense competitions by spending many strenuous hours each day performing swim laps in the pool. Just like in any other sport, swimmers are prone to injury. Swimmers use all of the muscles of their body to exert tremendous force on the water and propel themselves to move forward at high speeds. At the end of the swimmer’s day, total body care is needed. Sports massage helps swimmers be healthy and strong, both mentally and physically, throughout the swimming season and beyond.

Nerve Mobilization Massage, Santa Barbara, Goleta, Ca

Therapists use a variety of movements to assess for sites of irritation. Sometimes patients may test negative, but this does still not rule out nerve irritation, in these cases, a more refined assessment along the entire path of the involved nerve may be needed. Precision Neural Mobilization is an approach to identifying and treating various mechanical disorders of the nervous system.

When a compression or entrapment occurs, whether acute or chronic, edema and fibrosis are two of the most common consequences.

When nerves are exposed to fibrosis they lose their necessary capacity and capabilities to slide, bend and move around and through the various bodily tissues in which they traverse.

When a nerve loses this ability to move, it becomes subject to the further insult of compression and traction during normal everyday movement.

When this happens, these are precisely the people that come to our office requesting our help.

Over time, an accumulation of physical stress can begin to take a toll on our muscles and joints. Overuse of muscles can cause them to become chronically tight and sore, and compression and torque forces on the joints can lead to joint dysfunction and pain. In turn, joint pain can lead to further tightening of the muscles via protective muscle splinting and the pain-spasm-pain cycle. Tight muscles can then further limit joint motion, leading to fascial adhesion. This cycle, once begun, can be difficult to stop.
