Anatomotor has been used since the 40’s in the United States. It involves traction massages for cervical, lumbar, arm, shoulder, hips, knees and ankles.
This gentle, non-surgical therapy is a state-of the-art therapy for improving blood circulation, nutrient, gas and waste exchange of joints and soft tissue. The soothing, therapeutic massage also induces muscle relaxation, breaks down adhesions, and increases circulation, lymphatic flow and spinal mobility.
The gentle distractive forces of the Anatomotor therapy creates decompression of the spine, hips, shoulder, neck, lower back, hand, ankle, elbow, knees with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of the Anatomotor Therapy. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures.
Introduced to South East Asia for the first time, the Anatomotor has been a trusted leader among treatment tables for nearly 70 years in USA.
Amazingly versatile, the Anatomotor is designed for soft-tissue massage, intermittent and constant traction, heat and vibration.
The Anatomotor has a moving top on which the patient glides back and forth just under the normal respiration rate. During this movement, two sets of adjustable-height massage rollers straddle the spine and rhythmically loosen taut muscles.
This deep-kneading massage effectively prepares the patient for traction which actually separates the spinal vertebrae.
Benefits include mobilization, traction, oscillatory and rhythmic stretch of both spinal and peripheral joints. Effective for shoulder, elbow, hips, knees, neck and lower back problems.
