Do... Be... Become... Better...

STIM is a practical therapy tailored to each person’s individual needs – it increases activity tolerance so people can keep doing the activities they care about.

Soft tissueSTIM is used to restore function after injury and also to prevent injuries by treating pain, stress or fatigue in the early stages.

‘Soft tissues’ include muscles, ligaments, fascia and skin. In each session we gather information from the client and use postural observation, spinal and abdominal assessment to guide treatment. We generally treat with the room lights on and clients remain dressed. Treatment involves manual therapy, energy medicine, lifestyle counseling, education and development of home programs.

Soft tissue treatments may occur in rooms or at the workplace, through weekly on-site sessions of 2 to 4 hours.

We draw on a broad range of evidence-based and emergent techniques in traditional and complementary medicine. Our training bridges neuroscience, orthopedics, traditional Chinese medicine and integrated medicine including nutrition. STIM encompasses cutting edge information from internationally respected medical centres such as the Harvard Medical School (USA) the Prague School of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine and the Medical School of Charles University (Czech Republic).

At Occupational Impact we work holistically using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with soft tissue occupational therapy techniques to work on mind-body wellness.
