Alternative Therapies at Orchard Cove

Alternative Therapies

Orchard Cove is expanding the possibilities for improved health and senior wellness. Some of the therapies we offer have been around for centuries, while other approaches use advanced technology to reduce stress and improve overall well-being. We believe that exploring these techniques can lead to healthier lifestyle changes and more fulfilling lives.

Senior Wellness Programs: Mind, Body, and Spirit

Orchard Cove's Center for Healthy Living offers integrative therapies to complement traditional fitness and medical approaches. These innovative programs are both invigorating and relaxing, emphasizing a deeper sense of awareness, purpose, and healing.

Our center offers the following mind, body, and spirit activities to nurture each resident's senior wellness plan:

Quantum Biofeedback, Homeopathy, and Scalar Laser

Using a gentle headband, biofeedback identifies stress in the body and is able to induce relaxation and stress reduction. More than 70% of chronic disease has a major stress component, so it makes sense that reducing stress brings relief. Homeopathy involves safe, effective, diluted remedies that stimulate the body's own defense mechanisms. And Scalar Laser technology is becoming the treatment of the future for skin care, wound care, pain relief, and carpel tunnel syndrome.

Therapeutic Massage

Massage dates back thousands of years. The manipulation of muscles and soft tissue warms/increases blood flow and oxygen to a specific area while decreasing pain.

Shiatsu Acupressure

Gentle yet firm pressure is applied to specific points along the meridian channels. Stretching techniques may also be used to clear energy blockages and restore balance. As muscle tension and skeletal stiffness are relieved, a calm feeling is experienced on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.


Reiki is a healing practice that originated in Japan. Reiki practitioners place their hands slightly above the person receiving treatment, identifying problems and sending healing energy through their hands. This has been proven to facilitate the individual's own healing response.

The Trager® Approach

Utilizing gentle, nonintrusive, natural movements, the Trager Approach helps release deep-seated physical and mental patterns, facilitating deep relaxation, increased physical mobility, and mental clarity. The patterns may have developed in response to accidents, illness, or any kind of physical or emotional trauma, including the stress of everyday life.
