Pain Relief & Rehabilitation Services Based in St. Petersburg, Florida

Whether seeking injury recovery services or respite from chronic discomfort, you'll find the pain relief solutions you need at the office of Cindy Scifres, LMT. Cindy integrates multiple therapeutic techniques into a unique treatment program designed to heal your body's problem areas.

Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral therapy enhances your central nervous system, ultimately allowing your body to relax and correct itself. Cindy's assessment begins with locating your craniosacral rhythm, the movement of cerebral spinal fluid within the membrane that surrounds the brain and the spinal cord.
This treatment is exceptionally ideal for individuals suffering from headaches and chronic migraine pain, fibromyalgia, TMJ dysfunction, central nervous system disorders, and post-accident pain.

CranioSacral Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy
This highly effective deep muscle treatment eliminates pain caused by muscles and soft tissue injuries.
With NMT, Cindy conducts a postural assessment to determine muscle tension and imbalance. She then creates a custom massage therapy program to restore proper function to tense, imbalanced muscles and other soft tissues. The result is a return to feeling better. NMT is extremely effective in treating:

• Migraines & Headaches
• TMJ Pain & Dysfunction
• Shoulder Injuries
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Lower Back Pain
• Sports Injuries
• Neck Pain
• Bell's Palsy
• Sciatic Pain

Lymph Drainage Therapy
Lymph drainage therapy, or manual lymphatic drainage, is a hands-on technique designed to activate and cleanse the lymphatic system. When lymph circulation stagnates, fluids, proteins, cells, and toxins accumulate, significantly compromising cellular functioning.

The benefits of lymph drainage therapy include reduction of swelling, migraines, sprains, whiplash, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue.

Somato Emotional Release
SER is an advanced form of craniosacral therapy that rids the body of the residual effects of past injuries and negative experiences. Even when craniosacral therapy frees your body of the restrictions caused by an injury, an emotional release may be necessary to fully discharge the trauma.

Flexibility Instruction
Greater flexibility leads to more movement without pain! Active Isolated Stretching, yoga stretches, and general rehab stretches are several of the techniques Cindy uses to help you remain healthy and free of pain.

Myofascial Therapy
This technique focuses on releasing the most abundant connective tissue in our bodies called fascia. Fascia surrounds all of the muscles in our bodies, providing end to end pulling strength. A spreading motion is used along with mild friction along the skin to heat the fascia and then spread it to a larger size. This larger size means greater flexibility with reduced muscular tension.

Flexibility Instruction

Micro-Current Point Stimulation
Micro-current (also known as direct current) is administered to trigger points/painful areas on the body with a device called the Dolphin Neurostim. The Dolphin Neurostim produces minute micro-current impulses that gently relax the muscles, calm the nervous system, and stimulate the release of endorphins (the body's natural pain killers). This multi-pronged effect on the body's nervous, muscular, and endocrine system is why Micro-Current Point Stimulation works so quickly and effectively to reduce chronic pain.

Micro-Current Point Stimulation
Spray and Stretch
This technique is effective at relieving muscle and other soft tissue pain. Once a trigger point is located, a cold narrow stream spray is applied to the length of the stretched muscle, beginning at the trigger point. The cold spray produces a temporary numbing sensation to the nerve, that allows the muscle to relax and stretch.

Active Release Technique (ART)
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART is effective at resolving many problems including:

• Headaches
• Back pain
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Shin splints
• Shoulder pain
• Sciatica
• Plantar fasciitis
• Knee problems
• Tennis elbow

These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles that have formed scar tissue. This scar tissue can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, tingling, numbness, weakness and pain. The involved soft tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific movements by the client.
