ICT By Stroma
ICT by Stroma provides a framework to apply Ischemic Conditioning to treat injuries in the musculoskeletal system and other organ tissues throughout the body . This novel method provides a safe and clinically applicable method for practitioners to use to optimize healing and recovery of damaged tissue.
Through our all-in-one vascular, neural and myofascial technique, each clinician can elicit the mechanisms of ischemic conditioning by affecting both the vascular and neurovascular supply. We train our practitioners to evaluate and treat a patient using a myofascial map and derive a treatment strategy with ease and confidence. Sessions become quicker, more efficient and effective while saving your hands and body from injury.

ICT by Stroma has created a framework to apply Ischemic Conditioning to treat injuries in the musculoskeletal system and other organ tissues throughout the body. As seen in literature, tissues that have undergone injury, such as in the heart, brain and musculoskeletal system, can repair quickly and more effectively if brief and transient bouts of blood flow occlusion are applied to the body prior to, during and after an insult has occurred. This has been termed Ischemic Conditioning. Our all-in-one vascular, neural and myofascial technique can be applied prior to an injury, called Ischemic Pre-Conditioning, during an injury, called Ischemic Per-Conditioning and after an injury has occurred called Ischemic Post-Conditioning. See our courses below to begin your path to improved patient care and outcomes just by using your hands.

Vinita Chandra Mody
Vinita has over 15 years experience working in Physical Therapy, although her passion for manipulating the body began as early as eight years old. She came up with the idea to open her own practice when she developed a following of loyal patients who attested to the benefits of her unique therapeutic style.
Vinita earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at Canada’s McMaster University and a Master of Science in Physical Therapy at Canada’s Queen’s University. Her “eye” for catching faulty movement patterns has enabled her to address patient’s pain complaints in a scientific and effective way.
Vinita founded ICT by Stroma™ which is a vascular, neural and myofascial technique after years of working with patients and sensing body pulses and their link to symptomatic relief. Through dedication, curiosity and commitment, Vinita developed a strategic methodology to perform "mini-occlusions" throughout the body that mimicked the effects of Ischemic Conditioning. Her love of healing those suffering from injury and her passion for deep study enabled her to develop a systematized method to train others in this way. With ICT, patients recover when there is injury present, patients are protected when injury is looming and practitioners have an opportunity to change the lives of those who trust them with the warmth of their hands.
