— Dr. John Grady & Samantha Matthews

Harbor Health Center (HHC) specializes in regenerative medicine. Using injection techniques, hands on manipulation, physiotherapy, and wellness coaching we utilize the body's inherent ability to heal and strengthen tissues throughout the body. Even when a person’s ability to heal has been compromised by radiation, diabetes, neuromuscular conditions (eg strokes) or autoimmune conditions, we can stimulate regrowth and revitalization.

Many of these procedures and techniques are also highly effective in treating chronic conditions such as PTSD, depression, Parkinson’s and recurrent headaches. They have also been shown to enable a more youthful appearance without resorting to expensive and invasive surgical procedures.  Read more about it below

REGENERATIVE MEDICINE THERAPIES

 

PROLOTHERAPY

Sessions with Dr. John Grady DO

Also called proliferation therapy, is an injection-based treatment used trigger the body’s own healing cascade to reduce pain, strengthen soft tissue and bring the boy’s natural tension and stability into alignment. Dextrose (sugar) is a safe, mild irritant that stimulates fibroblasts, chrondroblasts and other cells to heal tissues. Is it safe, fast, natural and has a very fast recovery time.


 

PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)

Sessions with Dr. John Grady DO

Platelet-rich plasma, is a concentrate of your platelets, growth factors, cytokines and other proteins obtained from a small sample of your venous blood to provide a much stronger trigger for your healing response than Prolotherapy alone. It is frequently used in conjunction with Prolotherapy where there are ligament tears, labrum injuries, etc. along with overcompensation elsewhere in the same region.


 

STEM CELL INJECTIONS

Sessions with Dr. John Grady

Stem-cell therapy is the use of your own stem cells from fat or bone marrow to treat a damaged joint or chronic condition. Like Platelet Rich Plasma, Stem Cell therapy is frequently used in conjunction with Prolotherapy to treat a region of the body. A frequent use of Stem Cell therapy is to postpone or eliminate the need for joint replacements or other surgeries.


FACIAL REJUVENATIONS

PRP, BOTOX and FILLER TREATMENTS with Dr. John Grady

Cosmetic treatments which can be used individually or together, aim to restore a youthful and natural appearance. Dr. John Grady applies an integrative and gradual approach to target areas of concern and slow the aging process. This may include using your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) micro-needled on your face for fine wrinkles or a combination of PRP and fillers for volume replacement (such as nasolabial folds).


 OSTEOPATHIC MANIPULATIVE TREATMENT (O.M.T.)

Sessions with Dr. John Grady

A set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, a DO moves a patient's muscles, fascia and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.


 

SHAKTI YOGA

Sessions with Samantha Matthews

Yoga is the lens through which I see and approach the world. My mission in teaching is to empower people’s unique beauty in body and soul. Samantha is a renowned yoga teacher and intuitive healer. As an international teacher she is known for educating many of Santa Cruz and Silicon Valley’s top yoga instructors, high tech executives, and corporate teams. With over 25 years of experience she is one of the original online and festival yoga instructors. She brings laughter, playfulness and an ability to inspire students to heal on all levels. Her classes are catered to her audience and can be challenging, athletic or therapeutic. She is able to give you the sense of being seen and deeply supported.


 PHYSICAL THERAPY

Sessions with Samantha Matthews

Sam utilizes hands on body work for the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by techniques such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise. She has specialized training in neuromuscular rehabilitation to treat disorders and chronic conditions such as stokes, MS, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injuries. Treatments can also be applied post-surgery for recovery.


 PELVIC FLOOR TRAINING

Sessions with Samantha Matthews

A woman's pelvic floor muscles support her bladder, womb (uterus) and bowel (colon). The urine tube, the vagina and the sigmoid colon all pass through the pelvic floor muscles. Your pelvic floor muscles help you to control your bladder and bowel. The muscles may get stretched or injured during pregnancy or childbirth. They also help with sexual function. Samantha uses exercise, diet, and other techniques such as the Jade egg practice to strengthen, repair and improve control of one’s pelvic floor .


CUSTOMIZED TONAL FITNESS TRAINING

Sessions with Samantha Matthews & Dr. John Grady

The new Tonal Machine ® uses an electromagnetic engine and two adjustable arms to pack an entire weight room full of equipment into a form the size of a TV. Digital weights and advanced intelligence provide the first connected strength training experience. Samantha incorporates Tonal, free weights, yoga, HIIT training and more to help you reach your fitness and weight goals.
