What We do

  • Active Release Technique Certified Provider 


ART® is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

  • Selective Functional Movement Assessment 

SFMA identifies dysfunctional movement patterns and those that provoke pain. It then links the assessment information to an initial therapeutic strategy and initiates the most appropriate treatment interventions (manual therapy and functional exercise) into the traditional rehabilitation program to normalize dysfunctional movement. 

  • Applied Functional Science 

Applied Functional Science is the first certification of its kind that empowers the movement professional to treat and train every client as a unique individual. There are no universal protocols or screens that apply to all clients. Instead, Applied Functional Science will reveal a process of observation and manipulation to identify dysfunction and create treatments and programs for the clients specific needs based on their individual abilities and goals

  • Dermoneuromodulation

DermoNeuroModulating, or -tion, is a structured, interactive approach to manual therapy that considers the nervous system of the patient from skin cell to sense of self. Techniques are slow, light, kind, intelligent, responsive and effective. Positioning of limbs and trunk affects deeper nerve trunks (by shortening and widening their container), and is combined with skin stretch directed toward cutaneous fields of nerves that branch outward into skin (which may draw neural structure further through its container). 

  • Training

Training the human body is a great passion of mine. We work with a variety of tools to help clients. Mobility techniques, and strengthening/stability movements. 

  • Fascial Stretch Technique

FST is a neuro-myofascial manual therapy that focuses on the connective tissue system rather than isolated muscle treatment. What makes FST unique is the practitioner's ability to create length (through traction) at the joint capsule. The joint capsule actually being responsible for 47% of ones mobility/flexibility (Muscle/fascia is 41% responsible). Thus, you'll get a greater tissue effect and outcome through FST over solo static stretching.
