Frequently asked questions

What is Kinetic Therapy?

Kinetic Therapy is a form of treatment that aims to release soft tissue restrictions in the body, such as adhesions and scar tissue, which can cause pain, stiffness, and altered movement.


How does it work?

The therapy involves applying pressure to specific areas of soft tissue and fascia using specially designed Kinetic Tools.

By breaking up scar tissue and adhesions, Kinetic Therapy can improve circulation, range of motion, posture, nerve function and athletic performance, while reducing pain, tension, stress, and anxiety.

What’s the redness about?

Redness can appear when tools are used in during treatment due to increased blood flow to the area being treated.

When pressure is applied to the fascia using tools, it can cause small blood vessels in the area to dilate or widen. This increased blood flow can lead to redness or flushing of the skin.

Redness is a sign that the therapy is helping to break up adhesions or scar tissue in the fascia. As scar tissue is broken down and released, it can cause some inflammation in the area, which can also contribute to redness.

Redness or flushing is a common side effect of many manual therapies, including massage and other forms of bodywork. In most cases, it is a normal and temporary reaction that should resolve within a few hours to a day.

Does Kinetic Therapy Hurt?

Kinetic Therapy can sometimes be uncomfortable, especially if the therapy is targeting areas of tension or adhesions in the fascia. However, it’s important to note that the level of discomfort can vary depending on factors such as the individual’s pain tolerance and the severity of the condition being treated.

It’s not uncommon for patients to experience some discomfort or soreness during or after Kinetic Therapy, particularly if it is their first time receiving the treatment. The soreness should generally subside within a few hours to a day.
