Pressure: technique based on the realization of pressure on different parts of the body to correct abnormalities of the circulatory system. It is performed with the patient wearing sophisticated pants and acts on the body by issuing various pressure waves. The areas to be treated will suffer alternating compressions that trigger the movement.
Naturopathy: Naturopathy is a system of medicine which uses natural products. You can also say that Naturopathy is a technique based on the likelihood that the body has to heal itself.
Naturopathy advocates that the body tends toward health and that the best cure for the body is the homeostatic capacity it has. If the body is affected by factors such as inadequate diet, lack of sleep, exercise or fresh air, physical or emotional stress, environmental pollution, or negative emotions, there are imbalances that adversely affect the self and the immune ability suffers, it is exposed to external aggressions, such as viruses and bacteria. The naturopaths suggest that infections rarely occur in a well-kept body, and if the disease occurs, it should allow it to manifest symptoms before repress them, because it is the way that the body defends to regain balance and health.
Iridology: The Iridology is the science that reveals pathological (abnormal) and functional imbalances in the human body by means of stains, lines and discolorations in the colored portion of the eye called iris. While Iridology does not indicate a disease, however, shows a way to correct the problem, rather than suppress the symptom, because the iris is the screen where you record everything that happens in the body (except for surgery performed under anesthesia). It determines the various stages of organic disease (acute, chronic and degenerative), through their corresponding areas in the iris. Also revealed deposits of drugs, and hereditary weaknesses inherent and unhealthy habits. Knowing our weaknesses can prevent future problems.
Kinesiology: (science of movement) system that uses muscle testing as a mechanism of bio-communication, and seeks to correct any imbalances that since its inception and has taken into account the overall body-mind.

Chiromassage: set of techniques to alleviate muscle aches, either tension-type of energy blockage or lack of tone. Also used as a complementary and effective contribution in the implementation of other therapies (Acupuncture, Homeopathy …). When working on muscle tension, it helps to unblock energy lines (acupuncture meridians) and joints, improving the drainage of fluid (lymph, blood) and optimizing the functioning of organs.

Enables the patient to make maximum use of their resources to balance your body and your energy to flow more smoothly through the same. In short, it is improving the physiological functioning of all organs and body systems, as this massage activates blood circulation, promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses, producing energy and relieves stress and tension.
Cranio-sacral therapy: is a manual technique to help detect and correct imbalances in the Cranio-Sacral system that can cause intellectual dysfunction, motor or sensory. It has its origins at the end of last century in osteopathy by Dr. Sutherland and his subsequent scientific development. Since the skull bone to the sacrum, a mobility that flows rhythmically and, unlike the other patterns, can be assessed and corrected through palpation. Any malfunction or blockage, either by shock, stress emotional or physical, is going to affect this system and other body systems that are relevant.
The method applies various techniques or scientifically developed over the years, using the bones of the skull, neck, of the vertebrae, the base of the spine and soft tissue as a means to evaluate, release and balance the system.
