My Intercare and Rocktape Experience

Forget about your traditional ‘manghihilot’ or massage spas, have you tried the effective, scientifically-proven, complementary alternative medicine offered by the professionals?

Intercare is known in the Philippines and even in Australia where physical therapy students from universities get their training here. They offer a lot of health services that include stress management/counseling, pilates and rehab medicine to name a few. Chiropractic, myotherapy, acupuncture and ‘hilot’ done by licensed chiropractic doctors, physical therapists, and acupuncturists. Professional athletes seek Intercare services to enhance their performance and recover from injuries, fast!

A few days ago, bloggers were introduced to Intercare’s professional services and got some lecture from Dr. Martin G. Camara, Clinic Director, and was part of a Chiropractic expert panel for the World Health Organization (WHO) Consultation on Chiropractic. He explained in detail how parts of our body react to pain and treatment and also discussed to us how their clinic diagnose and treat pain effectively. We even personally tried some of it by going to different areas in their clinic and were professionally attended by physical therapists and Dr. Camara himself. For me, the myotherapy is great. I had also tried the iSMART and Rocktape for my right knee which I injured when I ran at the Corregidor early in December.
