The Valley Wellness Centers helped me work from the inside (source of the injury) out, Gaechter said, in a press statement. Chiropractic adjustments eliminate the source of pain; massage therapy erases the memory of years of injury; and rehabilitative movement retrains muscles to maintain a healthy body.Complementary health care couldnt be more simple or effective, she said. Now I get to share the simple perfection of complementary medicine with others through gyrotonic. Come learn more about gyrotonics role.Gyrotonics is the art of exercising with movements that stretch and strengthen the muscles in a way that increases the health of the spine and joints in the body. Gyrotonics kinesis works the body with minimal effort while increasing the range of motion and developing coordination. Personal gyrotonics instruction is offered at both locations of the Valley Wellness Centers.The series is open to the public, and allows individuals valley-wide to learn about methods of preventative and maintenance health care.
