Healing Hands adopts innovative physical therapy treatments
Jurgen Cowling, the owner of Healing Hands Physical Therapy Centers in Georgia, has been exploring cutting-edge technology and non-traditional treatments since he opened his first rehabilitation facility in 1997, according to The Augusta Chronicle.
While the three Healing Hands locations - in Augusta, Thomson and Aiken - all offer traditional physical and massage therapy, Cowling utilizes several different treatments, all predicated under his philosophy of helping the body heal itself. These treatments provide unique opportunities for those seeking physical therapist jobs in the near future.
"We're not just treating the symptoms, we're doing something," Cowling told the news outlet. "We're the only profession that promotes life. The body itself can heal, all we're doing is facilitating that."
Two of the nontraditional methods that Cowling believes in are cold laser and QGM therapy. While these processes are relatively recent trends in the United States, they have been used in Europe with considerable success, according to Cowling.
According to Bioenergetic Medicine, QGM, or QiGong machine, therapy is designed to simulate the healing energy that is released through the hands of Chinese QiGong master healers. The traditional Chinese practice focuses on aligning breath, movement, healing and meditation. At Healing Hands, the machine uses sound waves to massage the body and increase circulation in order to help the body heal.
Meanwhile, the cold laser is a handheld device that promotes biostimulation of tissues at the cellular level. The idea is that inflammation and pain can be decreased with no potentially harmful thermal side effects. SingleMindedWomen.com suggests that the benefits of laser therapy are growing at an exponential rate, with cold lasers wielding considerable high output power hitting the market.
By combining traditional and new-age therapeutic methods coupled with company features such as full transportation services for patients, Cowling and Healing Hands can continue to help patients' bodies heal themselves.
